There are quite a few benefits to being a Professional Mentee. Since 2008 more than 2000 students have experienced being mentored and most of them cite enhanced confidence and determination in pursuing their career aspirations as one of the biggest benefits.
Another positive outcome is an insight into the professional world and subsequent behaviours that one would need to employ in order to succeed. Yet every mentoring relationship is different and the benefits are also dependent on the goals that mentors and mentees set with each other.
Once or twice a month for a period of six months. The mentoring pair decides on meeting frequency together.
