Mentoring relationship between a mentor and mentee can go two ways; both receive different benefits from the event. Alternatively, the mentee can only receive the mentor’s benefits. In my case, the mentorship program offered a significant influence on carer development. I had a chance to interact with a career coach to leverage how best to get involved in the current course and reap the best when transitioning to corporate life.
One of the main advantages that I have gained inputs from the mentorship program is getting insight into my career, mostly on understanding the selling point of the entire course, how to be competitive, and stand out among candidates with the exact specifications. Building a good profile starts when in school. The actions, interactions, and activities contribute efficiently to creating innovations or even work ethics to associate with people within the line of work. Students who purely remain students in school without interacting with corporate minds usually have difficulty fitting easily into the workforce (Moores et al., 2018). The mentorship program was very impactful in generating the right attitude toward my career choice.
