Seeking a career mentor?

Our career mentorship sessions are conducted in either virtual or face-to-face format. Mentorship sessions can be either generic (covering various industries) or industry-specific (showcasing different job functions within a sector). In the very first session, you will get to meet various career guides (mentors), and during this human library segment, you can network and speak to different career guides (mentors). At the end of the session, that's when you will be able to indicate the career guide you wish to be matched to for a 4-month mentorship. 

Stay tune to this space for the upcoming mentorship sessions!

Note: The networking segment is currently free and open to all. The mentorship matching segment is open to NTUC members only.
