Industry Mentoring

Introduced in 2017, the Industry Mentorship Programme is a joint initiative between the Centre for Career Readiness and Young NTUC.

Designed with the intention to prepare our students in anticipation of their foray into the workplace, the mentorship programme serves as a perfect platform to connect you to the industry, whilst providing a deeper understanding of working life. Paired with an Industry Mentor from the relevant industry, you gain industry-specific career advice and guidance in developing your career path, as well as broadening your perspectives on career opportunities and aspirations.

Ultimately, we hope to build and acquire a pipeline of alumni mentors across industries as our graduates become working professionals.
