The UNSW Business School Career Mentoring Program pairs the School's most ambitious business students with accomplished alumni for a fifteen week mentorship. The program requires a minimum of five hours in-person face time with one mentee over the course of fifteen weeks. Meetings are arranged by the mentor and mentee with no formal check-ins with UNSW Business School to allow the mentorship to develop organically.
Mentors must be based in Sydney, or travel very regularly to Sydney, and have at least five years of professional business experience. Mentees are domestic or international students either in their penultimate or final year of an undergraduate Business School degree or enrolled in a postgraduate Business School degree (excluding those that require professional experience).
Mentors provide advice and guidance about career opportunities and navigating the work world post-university. The mentorship will help improve the mentee’s networking skills and boost confidence, as well as clarify career goals and aspirations.
