Graduate? Unemployed? Looking for direction?
The #MentorAGraduate workshop is the opportunity for you.
Recognising that some graduates often find it difficult to find work and even once they start working they struggle to adapt to a professional environment, the workshop aims to prepare recent graduates for workplace readiness.
Topics expected to be covered during the workshop include how to write a CV, interview preparation, how to dress for the corporate world and appropriate and inappropriate behaviour in the office.
It's the second workshop this year with the first having taken place on January 27 when 30 graduates received mentorship from the likes of entrepreneur Lynette Ntuli and social entrepreneur Winnie Kay.
Due to the success of the last workshop another one has been organised to address the urgent need for graduate mentorship. This time 50 graduates will have the opportunity to soak up as much information from entrepreneurs and leaders in the corporate space.
“Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living—if you do it well I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way. A mentor.”
Some of the top leaders around the world such as Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson and Sheryl Sandberg have spoken about the advantages of having mentors during their careers and paying it forward later on in their lives.
To stand a chance of being part of only 50 graduates who will be partnered with a mentor, send your updated CV to firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Registration closes on 12 February. The workshop will take place Saturday 17 February between 08:30 to 15:00 at Barloworld, 180 Katherine Street, Sandton.
