CCSGP MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME
The CCSGP Mentorship Programme is a six-month programme where industry professionals are paired with SoC students, organised in partnership with the Halogen Foundation. The programme is not technical in nature; mentors are not expected to teach their mentee any specific technical skills, like coding or software development. Mentors are expected to provide advice about career plans, skillsets needed for industry, etc., and to help the students successfully transition from student life to working life.
Anchored upon emotions, values, strengths, motivations, embrace failures, and aspirations.
Outcome - higher levels of self-confidence and a sense of purpose. This will translate to greater clarity during interviews and of course, in their career choices.
Differences between "passion" and a career.
How should I show up at work?
Outcome - greater understanding of some "expectations" in the industry/working world. Better able to manage their personal expectations in terms of career.
