Become a Mentor

The Campion CONNECTions Mentoring Program provides the opportunity for Campion alumni to mentor current Campion students as they explore their career, study and other options post-Campion.

By being available to share your experience and offer guidance you will make an important contribution to our Campion community. We hope that joining this program will also be a rewarding experience for you – professionally and personally.

 

What’s involved?

Campion CONNECTions will run in alignment with the academic year. You will be required to undertake a minimum of 3 meetings (face-to-face or via an online platform) within a 5-month timeframe, either March-July (Semester 1) or (August-December (Semester 2). The mentor and mentee may elect to extend the mentorship after this time.

At the first meeting with your mentee, you will need to agree on a mentoring schedule and objectives. Objectives could include creating a career plan, discussing future study options, reviewing the mentee’s resume/CV, providing advice on interview techniques, expanding professional networks or job shadowing/internship arrangements.

 

Benefits for mentors:

  • Broadening professional networks and connections
  • Developing coaching and mentoring skills
  • Playing an active role in helping students/graduates in a challenging transition time
  • Using your skills, experience and knowledge to make a real difference in the life of another individual

 

I encourage all alumni to consider getting involved in this mentoring program to engage with, learn from and support current Campion students. I am fortunate enough to be involved in other mentoring programs and they are great ways of remaining in touch with a community we all hold dear, and for sharing your experience and learnings with students. We’ve all benefited at one time or another from the advice and suggestions of others – let’s pass it on!

The Alumni Relations Officer will be in contact when a mentee has been matched to you. At this point, you will formalise your commitment by signing the mentoring agreement at your first meeting/interaction. Matching will be subject to the number of students who express interest in the program and whether students align with your areas of experience/profile. If we are not able to match you immediately, we thank you in advance for your patience and hope to match you in the near future.
