Become a Mentee in the UOW Mentoring Program
UOW Mentoring Program
The UOW Mentoring Program pairs you one on one with an experienced mentor currently active in the workplace and who previously studied at UOW. The aim is to match you with someone who is keen to share their advice and experience in their industry, which aligns with your interests and degree.
Targeted to students in their final years of undergraduate study, the program will help you build employability skills, increase your confidence before entering the workforce and raise your awareness of potential job opportunities in your field.
Becoming a Mentee
Mentoring is often described as a professional relationship in which an experienced person assists a less experienced person in developing skills and knowledge that will enhance their professional and personal development.
Your role as a mentee is to drive this relationship and to prioritise it as part of your professional career development. Simply put, you need to make the effort to prepare for meetings and events with your mentor to really capitalise on this great experience.
Applications closes on Wednesday, 10 August.
Who are the mentors?
The mentors are experienced UOW Alumni volunteering to share their work, life experience, skills and knowledge with you. Every effort is made to match mentors and students based on a mentor’s area of expertise and a student’s area of interest, however this is not guaranteed.
