Why be a Mentor?

Did you know career mentoring can result in increased knowledge of the current job market, confidence, and lifelong career management skills? Mentoring is also a great way to expand your professional network. Mentoring is a learning relationship between individuals focused on the mentee’s development and goals. As someone who has “been there before”, you will be able to assist current students in developing the confidence, knowledge and skills required to make a successful transition into industry. Becoming a mentor has a wealth of personal and company benefits. We at Westford also understand that your time is precious, we value your commitment to the program and our students. To show our appreciation to our most committed mentors you will also be able to unlock further benefits as a gift from us to you.
