Q&A with a mentor and mentee:
Why become a mentor?
As a mentor, you can play a vital role in helping students to navigate the transition from study to the workplace, building their confidence to identify potential career pathways, set career and study goals, increase professional networks and articulate their value to others.
Why become a mentee?
