The Careers Mentorship Program is a professional development initiative which aims to pair Kaplan Business School student ambassadors with relevant industry professionals and alumni on the basis of shared interests, degree backgrounds and preferred industry experience.
HOW TO APPLY
01. Express Your Interest
Student ambassadors, we want to hear from you! To get started, please see your Careers Officer and have a chat with them about the program. We need to ascertain what it is you would be hoping to get out of the program, what leadership style you best respond to and what your career aspirations are.
02. First Meeting
Once approved, your Careers Officer will organise your first meeting with your mentor and will offer you assistance in preparing for the program.
You will take part in a range of networking activities and events, while given the opportunity to build and develop on-going support with your mentor.

A Word From a KBS Mentee
Luis Medina, KBS Student and Mentee (left):
“The great thing about the mentorship is it boosts the speed at which I am able to pick up skills and knowledge, which would otherwise take much longer if I was left to do it all by myself. “

“Whatever opportunity comes your way, you need to make it happen. Don’t sit there and think that you’re going to come out and be above other entry-levels.”
