The mentoring opportunity
The mentoring partnership will provide mentees with a valuable opportunity to obtain advice and guidance from a European industry professional on a wide range of industry, skills and employment-related topics such as:
- soft skills required in the industry.
- advice on career opportunities in Europe.
- job search skills.
- career paths.
The number of agreed mentoring meetings is flexible, but it is expected a minimum of one hour every four weeks during the 12 week partnership – this will usually be by phone or Skype. If both parties agree, the partnership may be ended early if all questions are answered.
