We know that as a University of Essex student you have a curiosity about the world, questions about your future and ideas to explore.
Having someone to talk to from outside of your circle of friends and family, someone who understands where you’re coming from but is not impacted by your future decisions, can really help to clarify your plans and how you approach life after University. Enter the Career Mentoring Programme!
Mentor Connections: Our newest addition, Mentor Connections is exclusively for postgraduate students graduating this academic year. The programme takes place during the summer and provides you 1-to-1 access to one of our career mentors over a three-month period.
6-month Career Mentoring: Our full mentoring programme offers an average of one hour per month 1-to-1 support from a career mentor over a six-month period. Preparation takes place during the summer term with mentoring relationships due to commence in the Autumn term.
Our Essex mentors are there to not only share their industry expertise but to empower you. To listen, to talk through your plans, fears, and aspirations, and give you the time and space you need to make decisions that are right for you.
Whatever your year, level, or discipline of study, provided you are registered as a student for the duration of the programme and think you could benefit from this unique opportunity, we want to hear from you!
- 6-month Career Mentoring: Applications are now closed for 21/22 and will reopen in Spring 2023
- Mentor Connections: Postgrads only, applications are now closed for 21/22 and will reopen in Spring 2023
For more information, read on and book into one of our virtual Career Mentoring Information Sessions via CareerHub, or check out our online briefing video.
NB: The Career Mentoring Programme grows in popularity each year and spaces are limited, so please only apply if you are motivated and able to commit to the programme.
A panel will review all applications once the deadline has passed, after which you will be informed of the outcome via email. If for any reason your application is unsuccessful, you will be invited to a feedback session with information on other opportunities that may be more relevant to your needs.
