Meet Your Mentor

Meet Your Mentor

 

Join the Meet your Mentor programme, share your experience, and support KU students in job placement!

 

·         The idea of the programme

 

The idea behind the Meet your Mentor programme is the exchange of experience and knowledge between the current students of Finance and Accounting at Kozminski University and the graduates of this field of study, who have already made their mark in the labour market. We intend to create a platform where our graduates – professionals specializing in different fields – will have an opportunity to share their experience and practical tips they wish they had been given when they were taking their first steps in business.

Have just thought about yourself? Excellent! We’re currently looking for mentors who will contribute to this project!

 

·         We’re looking for Mentors. Who do we mean by that?

Our graduates with considerable professional experience and a strong professional position, who would like to enter into a long-term collaboration with KU and support our students in finding employment in companies offering on-the-job training and employment opportunities in the area of finance and accounting.

Our goals is to help our students to learn about e.g.:

Ø  the best places to take up an internship, an on-the-job training, or a job as recommended by our mentors

Ø  how to get a good job in a company/institution operating in the financial industry

Ø  a given mentor’s way from a KU student to a business professional,  

Ø  the factors behind the professional success in the mentor’s field of specialization,

Ø  the current trends and challenges in a given industry,

Ø  the recruitment process from an employer’s point of view,

Ø  the difficulties a given mentor has faced on their career path and the ways in which they have dealt with them,

Ø  the first days at work and the issues students should pay particular attention to.

 

·         What do we expect from a Mentor?

 

Ø  Readiness to endorse KU students as applicants for an on-the-job training, an internship programme, or a job.

Ø  Ability to make decisions and willingness to share contacts related to the opportunities for KU students to take part in an internship/on-the-job training programme, or to find a job.

Ø  Workshop and consultation sessions preparing our mentors to work with students.
