Meet Your Mentor
Join the Meet your Mentor programme
· 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.
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.
