The Inside Track Seminar on how to choose the right mentor for you
1.11, Merchant Venturers Building.
Your industrial mentor is an immensely useful resource to help with your career development, and so it's important to choose the right one for you.
This session is designed to help you identify what stage you are up to in your career planning, how a mentor can support you with it and which person would be best suited to provide the information that you need.
You will hear from the Careers Service about how to understand your own motivations, values, skills and experience, and how to research the companies effectively to see which would be your best fit.
Bring your lunch – all Faculty first year students welcome.
For an hour after the seminar, the Faculty of Engineering Employability Adviser Gareth Hughes (Careers Service) will be available in the foyer of the Merchant Venturers Building (upper atrium) for students to drop in and talk about anything careers related, including any queries, CV advice and how to access further support.
The Inside Track Seminar series is an informal forum aimed at students to provide a regular opportunity to discuss in an open environment any industry or careers related issues you have. Each week will have a theme, but there will also be the opportunity to bring any other questions you have (e.g. about CVs, job applications, types of industry, internships etc.). Members of staff from the Careers Service and Industrial Liaison Office will be at each session.
