WIS Mentorship Program

 The objective of the WIS Mentoring Program is to offer the selected mentees further professional development and the chance to benefit from the experience and industry knowledge of a mentor, providing a fantastic opportunity to acquire an insight into the world of work and to get their career off to the best possible start.

 

The programme is designed to be highly flexible so the mentee can achieve their own professional development goals. It is also intended that it does not become too onerous and can accommodate the mentors and mentees busy schedules.

 

At least four face-to-face meetings are recommended during the year between mentor and mentee, with more regular email or phone communication.
Whilst the program is designed to be flexible, we also provide suggested topics to help drive conversation. Topics include:
  • Creating a great first impression.
  • Building rapport.
  • Networking.
  • Learning the job.
  • Managing conflict.
  • Balancing work/life and leisure.
  • Developing network skills.
