The aim is to support students at a critical time in their career, as they begin making decisions in relation to employment, internships or further study.
A mentor can provide practical information on specific roles and sectors, including what is required to work in that area and what their day to day job involves. Often, they can also help with applications and interviews. Mentors are a great objective sounding board who you can run ideas past and seek advice from. If you feel you could benefit from this support and would like to work with a mentor to develop your employability, this is the programme for you!
The mentors are UCD alumni from a range of different backgrounds with vast knowledge and a range of experience.
