Alumni mentors build student confidence and employability

2015 was another hugely successful year for the Career Mentor Scheme, with more than 430 partnerships between mentors and students.

Students who take part in the scheme are more likely to be in graduate level employment 6 months after graduating. 87% of students participating said they would recommend the scheme to a friend. Gerard Rhodes, fourth year LLB law student, achieved all of his mentoring objectives, including receiving first-hand insight into his profession of interest. He shared with us some of the highlights for him, which included: receiving application form tips and corrections ahead of applying for vacation schemes, arranging to meet his mentor at their office and gaining a valuable contact in a career sector which is important to him.
