How Is Our Mentorship Conducted?
Organised by Young NTUC, this will be physical sessions that can be industry-specific or generic.
Conducted in human library format where mentees meet mentors in a small group setting
Mentors will answer mentees' burning questions and share their experiences
At the end of the session, mentees will be matched with mentors for a stipulated mentorship period*.
The On-Demand Mentorship is now available to help you with your career needs. Explore and browse a catalogue of mentors and find one who fit your learning strategy and criterion, at your convenience. Simply book an appointment with our volunteer Career Guides on our platform for a once-off or a stipulated mentorship period* with them.
* The stipulated mentorship period is a 4-month programme that is an exclusive benefit for NTUC members only.
