IBM Mentoring Scheme 2017

Having settled into university life, you now need to start considering your future career options, understand how competitive the job market is and take steps in this first year to help you stand out from the competition.

This mentoring programme is open to all first year undergraduate students, and will focus on the development of key graduate skills and competencies to prepare you for a successful transition into graduate employment.

The programme offers many employability benefits including opportunities to:

  • clarify your career plans
  • gain an ‘insider’s guide’ to job hunting and the application process
  • develop professional networks and meet people
  • increase skills, knowledge and confidence to succeed in your job search

Applications open on Monday 7 November 2016 and all applications must be submitted by Midnight (GMT) on Sunday 20 November 2016. The scheme itself will commence on Wednesday 18 January and will run until the end of May 2017.
