Applications to join WIESoc’s Industry Mentoring Program are now open!
All UNSW engineering students are welcome to apply regardless of gender!
The Industry Mentoring Program provides a unique opportunity for all students, regardless of gender, to challenge and develop their professional skills through a 4 month intensive program under the guidance of a mentor. Mentees will be matched with an industry professional based on the student’s degree and career interests.
This year’s theme is "Journey to Success” and as a mentee, you will have numerous opportunities to receive valuable insights from your mentor to develop the skills required to reach your success. You will be participating in skill-building activities such as mock interviews and design challenges at our events in addition to one-on-one meetings with your mentor. The program is an amazing way to connect with industry, ask any questions you may have about your career interests, and learn how to smash your career goals in order to succeed in the future.
Successful completion of the program requires mentees to complete at least 4 hours of meetings with their mentor in addition to attendance at all program events, which run on Thursdays 7-9pm on the following dates:
✨ Training Workshop (23rd June)
✨ Opening Ceremony (30th June)
✨ Checkpoint 1 (28th July)
✨ Checkpoint 2 (22nd September)
✨ Closing Ceremony (27th October)
The program will be undertaken in-person (subject to change depending on the COVID-19 situation) in Term 2-3 of 2022.
Students who successfully complete the program will receive AHEGS accreditation on their transcript. To be eligible you must:
🌟 Be a WIESoc Member (sign up via SpArc) and
🌟 Be a current UNSW engineering student who is highly motivated and will be committed to meet all the above requirements.
Online applications will be followed by an individual interview if selected, and successful applicants will then be informed by email.
Mentee Applications are open NOW and close at 11:59pm on Friday, 22nd of April 2022. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to take part in this rewarding journey!
Interviews will be held (on campus) from the 30th of May through to the 10th of June, 2022.
