We strongly feel that mentorships are a crucial part of personal and professional growth that almost all university students forgo. When at university, the criticality of the decisions you make and the first steps you take on your career are vitally important and can define the rest of your working life.
We bracket the benefits of mentorship into four key areas:
- Impartial advice: Your mentor can provide expert advice and guide your next steps with clarity and conviction, they have years of experience, are not motivated by any external agenda and genuinely want the best for you. From small decisions to major life-changing choices, having an independent ear to talk to is incredibly powerful.
- Industry insight: Get key insights from people actually working in the industry you’re interested in. Our mentors have years of industry experience and can highlight the inner workings of some of the most intricately structured companies.
- Networking leverage: All our mentors are extremely well connected from both within their firm but also within their industry. Your mentor can often make the relevant introductions or suggest the right people to contact, helping you skip all the middlemen and go straight to the decision-makers.
- Experience with pretty much everything in life: Interviews, cover letters, career planning, dissertation help, goal setting, salary negotiation, mastering rapport, character building, and so much more – your mentor has seen and done it all.
