Having a career mentor allows you to gain insight, knowledge and expertise from someone who has quite literally 'been there, done that.' Whether it is identifying the best role for your skill-set, exploring how to build up relevant experience on your CV, or planning out long-term career goals - the guidance provided by a mentor can truly be invaluable.
As part of the Progressive Careers Mentoring Programmementees receive: 1-to-1 advice, support and guidance from a professional already in a social impact career. The mentor programme consists of three stages: exploration, career plan and action plan. By the end of the 3 month programme the mentee should have a clearer idea of their career trajectory, as well as a list of actionable steps to help them get to where they want to be.
