The BEL Career Mentoring Program puts high achieving, motivated students from The University of Queensland’s Faculty of Business, Economics and Law in contact with experienced industry professionals.
The program complements mentees’ academic knowledge by offering a real industry perspective and practical advice to prepare them for their career. This invaluable guidance enhances all aspects of a mentee’s employability, including their transition to work, applying academic knowledge in the workplace, goal setting and career options. Mentors can play a key role in a mentee’s development while enhancing their leadership and coaching skills and might even identify new talent for their organisation.
Why become a mentor?
A mentor is a guide. A friend. A resource who helps pave the way for others to succeed. The role of a mentor is to inspire, encourage, and support a mentee, contributing to their development through thoughtful conversation and consultation.
Why become a mentee?
With the help of a mentor, mentees can gain new knowledge and skillsets that can broaden your career opportunities and personal networks for advancement. As a mentee, gain the confidence necessary to tackle short and long-term goals, navigate challenges, and accelerate your growth.
One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination. - John C. Maxwell
