Mentoring is a way of giving back to Brookes by helping students and alumni to succeed in today’s highly competitive job market. For a talented young graduate, the experience and knowledge gained from mentoring can be key to getting started in their ideal career.
As well as making a potentially life-changing difference to students and graduates’ futures, it can also be a tremendous learning experience for mentors themselves. It can enable you to develop interpersonal skills and gain new perspectives on your work.
It is a flexible way of giving back. You choose who and how many mentees you wish to mentor. It also provides professional networking opportunities, both with mentees and your fellow alumni mentors.
For most mentors, it is a richly rewarding experience.
