WHAT WE DO
LIT CAREER MENTORSHIP
LIT Career Mentorship
Targeted at providing graduating students, first job seekers as well as young working adults with the necessary support and guidance for their career navigation.
Young NTUC's pool of over 400 volunteer Career Mentors currently cover a range of 23 different industries and functions. The industries covered include banking and finance, healthcare, infocomm technology, social services, engineering and so on.
Mentors can help you understand what to expect in the working life and assist you in building up your professional portfolios.
How Is LIT Career Mentorship Conducted?
The LIT Career Mentorship rolls out in-person meet-the-mentors sessions that are industry-specific or generic. The sessions will allow mentees to:
Meet the career mentors in a small group setting via a human library format
Have their burning questions answered by the career mentors and hear more about the mentors' personal experiences
*Be matched with a career mentor at the end of the session for a 4-month mentorship.
*Available for NTUC Starter Members only.
Once you are matched with a career mentor after the meet-the-mentors session, you will embark on a 4-month mentorship with them!
Set on the goals you wish to achieve during this period and discuss them with your career mentor. Take the journey of self-discovery and have regular check-ins with your career mentor to ensure that you are on the right track.
