The ACS Victoria Mentoring program has attracted a large amount of positive feedback from both mentees and mentors who have taken some time to share their industry skills and experience. Some mentors have participated in multiple rounds, still having kept in contact with their earlier mentees and taking on another. Hear what some of our previous participant's have said about the program -
A mentors perspective...
"I was looking for a chance to support young people on their way into IT and the ACS found me a good match and explained the mentor model to me so that I knew what to do. It was a reminder that I have valuable experience across the IT field, and it was lovely to be appreciated! The ACS Victoria mentoring program offers benefits for both parties and provides support in an industry that doesn't always remember that people are people."
A mentees perspective...
"The ACS Victoria mentoring program is very suitable for a student or young professional who would like to become more involved in the industry. My mentor guided me through areas that I had not previously been exposed to and provided me with real-world advice through his own personal and professional experiences. My mentor introduced me to other IT professionals to network with, helping me to further develop skills that can't always be learnt in the classroom."
How to apply...
