On the 1st of March, thousands of students will be starting their University journey. Some will thrive and make friends quickly, but others may struggle to find their feet. If you’re a current student who loves the idea of giving back to the UNSW community and helping a student find their path, become part of the inaugural AccSoc Development Program (ADP).
As a mentor, you will support your very own mentee through the ins and outs of personal and professional development through personalised weekly 1 on 1 meetings. The program allows for mentors (you) to pass on the experiences and information you’ve learned throughout your time at University to mentees who are in need of guidance and advice.
What kind of benefits can you expect to gain with ADP and what are the requirements?
Through the AccSoc Development Program, you will build key leadership, communication, listening and organisational skill sets, whilst increasing your network amongst fellow mentors, and the current AccSoc 2017 Executive and Directors team. Outside the official structure and mentoring for ADP, mentors can expect to be part of fun social events throughout the year!
What we’re looking for in a mentor:
– Interest in business and professional services (not just Accounting or finance!)
– UNSW and industry knowledge
– Approachable, compassionate, and genuine personality
– Demonstrates a positive mindset and acts as a positive role model
– Strong organisational skills and responsible attitude
To be eligible, you must be able to attend a mentor training day on either 11th or 18th February.
Time Commitment: 1-2 hours per week for Semester 1
