BEL Career Mentoring Program

Complement your academic knowledge by connecting with a personal industry mentor, often an alumnus/a. Mentors are an invaluable source of experience and support as you make the transition from student to graduate. Your mentor can share tips on how to apply your learning to work, help you understand what attributes and behaviours are valued in the workplace, and guide you in using your existing skills to find work.

    Kick start your career!

    Network, connect and engage one-to-one with a respected and successful industry professional by participating in the BEL Career Mentoring Program. The program runs throughout the semester (March - June or August - November), and allows you to gain practical advice on all aspects of career and employability such as:

    • Transitioning to work after graduation
    • Applying your academic knowledge in the workplace
    • Goal setting
    • Career options.

    You will also gain an understanding of the behaviour and attributes expected in the workplace and how best to utilise your skills to find work and develop your career.

    Places are limited. To participate, you must:

    • be enrolled in a Business, Economics or Law degree
    • be in your final year of study (for undergraduates) or at any point of your degree (for postgraduates - excluding MBA students)
    • have a cumulative GPA of 4 or above
    • be prepared to fully commit to the program including attendance at mandatory events.
