The Alumni Leadership Mentoring Programme is a scheme open to undergraduates in their penultimate year.
It’s an amazing and unique scheme where you can apply to be mentored by Birmingham Alumni who are experts in their respective fields.
The meaning of mentoring to me is about sharing experiences with accomplished people in their field.
I think mentoring is about learning from someone else’s experience.
I can honestly say that without my mentor I wouldn’t be where I am now.
I think a piece of advice that I took from my mentor is that feedback is the breakfast of champions.
Where to be truly successful you should be looking to always get feedback from others about how you are working and about yourself.
The more you put into this definitely the more you get out. It’s complete professional help, which is completely bespoke to how you wanted.
You are being given an objective view by somebody, it’s a fresh view of you and what you are doing and it gives you a chance to think through what you are really about and how you can convince people that you are good.
