Rebecca’s Story – Third-year Business, Event Management, and Marketing student, and 2020 Industry Mentoring participant.

“The mentor program has been a very encouraging and rewarding experience. It still surprises me that there are amazing people out there willing to use their personal time to mentor someone, and are genuinely interested in your development and success! I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience and have gained so much insight and knowledge in my industry. Although I know what industry I want to work in, I still wasn’t sure what specific niche would work best for me. My mentor has given me guidance on this, and I feel more confident going into the workforce.”

The Industry Mentoring Program is an excellent initiative for both the mentor and mentee. The program gives the mentor an avenue to give back to the community. It also provides a platform to reflect and review your professional career pathway.

The mentoring program is a great way of keeping current. It is exciting dealing with young recruits, that exhibit high energy and enthusiasm. It is a real opportunity to give back, whilst simultaneously learning from your mentee. A very rewarding experience

Erick’s Story - Masters in Professional Accounting student, and 2020 Industry Mentoring participant.

"The mentoring program has been an excellent tool for me to grow both professionally and personally. My mentor has encouraged and guided me to achieve the professional goals I have at my own pace while being actively involved in the process. He has opened my eyes to new career paths and helped me understand what each path I decide to take might be like. I would definitely recommend it to any La Trobe student.”

The Industry Mentoring Program has been a wonderful experience. I have enjoyed meeting my mentee and getting to know him. The lively discussions we have had, sharing my insights and perspectives to help him with his future career and the opportunity to connect with a university student have been the highlights so far.
