The DCU Structured Mentorship Programme is a joint initiative, co-organised by DCU Alumni and the DCU Careers Service. The programme runs for six-months between October and March and pairs second-year students with alumni mentors for the purposes of careers and personal development. Alumni and students are matched based on their areas of professional expertise, DCU course and areas of interest. Alumni mentors are asked, if possible, to provide their student mentee with a work-shadowing day as part of the programme. Structured Mentorship involves a number of events for both mentors and mentees on-campus and is therefore ideal for graduates who are based in Dublin or nearby counties.
The programme involves five main events / activities (dates and times of each to be confirmed). Mentors are not required to attend all events, but we would ask both mentors and mentees to attend the Meet and Greet and Closing Event if possible.
We are aware that it is not always possible for alumni to provide a work-shadowing day. In this circumstance, we would ask graduates to organise an extended session with their student mentee to focus on career progression, interview or CV skills, presentation skills or similar.
Students and mentors make contact based on their own schedules and timetables. Time commitments for the programme are very flexible. As a general rule, we would ask graduates to make contact with their mentee twice a month for the duration of the programme.
