MomentuM – Information for Mentees

Program Aims & Outcomes

MomentuM is a student-driven program. While many opportunities are facilitated by the MomentuM Team , it is up to the individual student (mentee) to be proactive, actively participate and invest in the program.

The MomentuM Team matches mentees with mentors based on their application criteria: learning styles, work patterns and areas of growth. Together with their mentors, mentees will focus on 5 themes of professional development:

  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Personal Brand & Career Development
  • Critical Thinking
  • Teamwork

Successful applicants will be invited to a welcome event, mentee meetups and industry led workshops across the semester to discuss their learnings and themes. 

Throghout the program, we aim for mentees to: 

  • Develop and improve business acumen
  • Be supported, challenged and motivated by an experienced industry professional (your mentor)
  • Develop increased confidence, self-awareness, emotional intelligence and an understanding of personal brand and value proposition
  • Identify key career pathways and career goals based on an understanding of sectors and industries;
  • Build new connections and professional networks
  • Exercise a growth versus fixed mindset.
