Taking you higher with mentorship

Decisions magazine – Issue 14

Want to get a head start in your future and make the most out of your undergraduate journey? Mentors can help you map out the career path you want to take, and prepare you for the journey. We share with you 5 tips on how you can start to find a mentor!

Taking you higher with mentorship

Leverage your school’s programs or alumni network

Check out your school’s website and resources for mentorship programs to help you get you started. If you have graduated, your alumni network is worth looking into. Your professors are likely to have potential and suitable mentors to recommend to you. Don’t forget that you can also network with your school seniors to find out more.

Pick a mentor from your internship

Internships are not only great opportunities for you to get a feel of the industry you wish to develop your career in, they also open doors for you to meet many experienced mentors. Bond and interact with them and pick a mentor you are comfortable with to learn more about their journey, career tips and knowledge of the industry.

Join mentorship programs and events

Search for organisation that offers mentorship programs as this would sometimes be the most natural and easiest way to gain a mentor. Attend the networking events hosted by these organisations and look around for mentors that would suit you the most.

Engage on social media

Engaging mentors through social media is now an option with LinkedIn. Connect yourself with the groups you are involved in to find a mentor that best fits your professional interest. With this online platform, you can easily arrange for a meet-up session to chat further.

Consult your family and friends

A mentor can come from your family or close friends, people who usually know you best and can be very honest with you. You can even consider your parents for your mentors – they generally have your best interest in mind and at the same time are not afraid to push you.
