UOW Mentoring Program

When UOW students stand on the threshold of their career, having someone in their corner to help them find their way can change everything. You could be that someone for a UOW student.

About the program

The Alumni Metoring program matches UOW alumni as mentors with current UOW students who are seeking career advice and are eager to gain insight into the opportunities and challenges of working in specific industries.

What's involved

  • We match alumni expertise with a current UOW student
  • Trainging is provided to both mentors and mentees. We will outline expectations, key dates and available resources.
  • Mentors and mentee agree on the amount of engagement time, with a minimum of 4 contact hours over the duration of the 5 week program

Benefits for mentors

Mentoring can benefit mentors as much as the mentees. Benefits include:

  • Satisfying the natural human desire to share knowledge and experience.
  • Achieve satisfaction: For some mentors, having a mentee succeed and eventually become a friend and colleague, is one of their greatest joys.
  • Develop your professional network: By making contacts for your mentees, you strengthen your own contacts and make new ones.
  • Extend your contribution: The results of good mentoring have an ongoing and lasting effect, as mentees are often inspired and want to give back.
