Have their burning questions answered by the Career Guides and hear more about the Career Guides' personal experiences
*Be matched with a Career Guide at the end of the session for a 4-month mentorship period.
*Available for NTUC Union Members and NTUC Starter Members only.
The On-Demand Mentorship is now available to help you with your career needs. Explore and browse a catalogue of Career Guides and find one who fit your learning strategy and criterion, at your convenience. Simply book an appointment with them on our online platform for a once-off with them.
