CIT Joint Mentorship Programme
The CIT Joint Mentorship Programme
The CIT 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 CIT students and alumni in relevant industries as well as encouraging and supporting engagement between the Institute and the alumni community.
The Programmes offers the opportunity for organisations to build their brand further on the CIT campus, 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 CIT Joint Mentorship Programme is in its seventh year and is a voluntary, extra-curricular activity for students. It is facilitated by the Alumni Office and the Careers Service at CIT. The 2020-2021 programme will run for a six-month period from 10th November 2020 to 29th April 2021, 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 2021.
