MTU Joint Mentorship Programme
The MTU Joint Mentorship Programme
The MTU Joint Mentorship Programme is a student employer engagement initiative which aims to match current students with professionals (the majority of whom are graduates), from a wide range of sectors to exchange business experience, knowledge, expertise and career advice. The initiative aims to enhance connections between MTU students and alumni in relevant industries as well as encouraging and supporting engagement between the University and the alumni community.
The Programmes offers the opportunity for organisations to build their brand further at the MTU, share job prospects with current students in a competitive recruitment market and influence the workforce of the future. It is also endorsed by a number of professional associations for example, Cork Chamber, IBEC, and Network Ireland.
The MTU Joint Mentorship Programme is in its ninth year and is a voluntary, extra-curricular activity for students. It is facilitated by the Alumni Office and the Careers Service at MTU.
The 2021-2022 programme will run for a six-month period from 9th November 2021 to 28th April 2022, with one-to-one mentoring sessions between Mentors and Mentees on a monthly basis. A flexible approach is offered with regards to monthly contact which involved face-to-face contact, emails, skype and phone calls. Upon completion of the Mentorship Programme, Mentees and Mentors will be awarded a certificate of participation at the closing event in April 2022.
