Some of our mentees

We have gained so much from the experience; mentors have helped us revisit our strengths and development needs, showed us how to work on some of these, encouraged us to consider what job we REALLY want and introduced us to some additional networks that can help support and guide us towards our career goals.

2 of our mentors

My mentees and I have been on a journey. Our first meetings were to identify strengths and what jobs my mentees were looking for. I provided both of them with the opportunity of meeting with my HR & FD Director, and other contacts. We then focussed on their CVs and applying for jobs and the final meetings were more focussed on the interviewing process.

They have both now secured jobs.

It is good to know there are real quality individuals prepared to work very hard to gain a business role in the future. I would like to say that if more people in business had the approach and integrity that my mentee has, business for the future would be in safe hands.

David

My mentor Mike has a background in Communications and PR. He helped me think about things from an employer’s perspective when they are recruiting, and I have been successful in getting a job.

David is extremely motivated. He took advantage of this project to tap into my experience and to find out what organisations are really looking for, in order to develop those skills and qualities that make an individual stand out from the crowd!

slide6

James

This Project built upon both what I have learned at University and during my placement. To have access to people working at this level for advice and guidance has really helped me to develop. I have been successful in getting a job and I really recommend being mentored to other students!

We have had a great pilot programme and I am now looking forward to encouraging more students to get involved next year
