Perhaps you’re at the start of your career facing some big decisions. You think you’d like to work in a particular industry but you want to talk to someone who’s been there already before you take the plunge. Or maybe you’ve reached a junction and you’d benefit from speaking to someone who’s successfully pivoted their own career.
The St John’s College alumni community comprises people working in all sorts of industries; if there’s something you want to do, there’s a high chance another Johnian has relevant experience.
Johnians are also really keen to help other members of their community. On our digital networking platform, Johnian Hub, 83% of members have indicated that they are willing to offer professional development help or mentoring. Many of our alumni are driven by a desire to help the next generation. So if you find someone who has relevant experience, they are more than likely willing to share it with you.
Start by taking a read of our tips on how to create a great mentoring relationship. You can also read the mentoring experiences of three Johnians. Then sign in to Johnian Hub and start looking – or if you don’t yet have a profile, now’s the time to create one.
We’d love to hear about your experiences of mentoring in the alumni community, so please get in touch on email@example.com.
