Mentoring Students

CBE Momentum

About the program

The ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) is dedicated to ensuring that our students are prepared to successfully navigate the professional landscape and meet the expectations of their future employers. That is why we are working with industry partners to co-run the flagship professional development program at ANU, MomentuM.

Student employability is a core value and key strategic focus at CBE, and we know that employers demand well-rounded graduates who are job-ready and equipped with all of the skills required for the job market.

From July 2018, eligible CBE students will be able to take a step towards their brilliant career with MomentuM.

Momentum is a 12-month program, comprised of a series of 6 workshops and includes several opportunities for students to take industry-led trainings as well as a job shadowing opportunity prior to program completion.

Become a mentor

We are seeking interested ANU alumni and industry professionals with a minimum of 3 years industry experience to participate in the program as MomentuM mentors.

Registrations to become a mentor will close October 2018.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact us at momentum.cbe@anu.edu.au.

The mentor relationship

Participants will be matched with a mentor to support their development. The mentor’s primary responsibilities are to:

  • Mentor up to 2 students
  • Minimum of one 1-hour session per month (in-person/phone/Skype)
  • Commit to the full term of the program (January 2018 - June 2018)

What it is

What it is not

A confidential partnership

Helping the mentee complete assessments or student projects

A conversation where the mentee can discuss career-related issues or problems and seek advice

Telling the mentee what to do or not to do

A forum for personal and professional development through the mentor’s professional experience and expertise

Offering an internship or work agreement

A venue for exchanges of ideas, advice, tips and tools to support goal-achievement of the mentee

Coaching or therapy (you might use coaching techniques but it is not a coaching relationship, according to the ICF standards)

A relationship built on mutual respect with the mentee’s best interest at heart

Taking responsibility for the mentee’s performance (academic, professional or otherwise)
