One mentee’s response after a DiversCity mentor helped him gain a training contract:
[my mentor’s] input, encouragement and belief were key to helping me achieve this first huge step in my professional career…. this mentoring program has proved the most valuable resource for me in reaching my goals and having the necessary support along the way.
Another mentee’s response when asked about the DiversCity mentoring scheme:
[my mentor] has been an outstanding mentor and has been able to help build my confidence and anxiety with applications, interviews and general confidence issues. He has helped to identify key areas of improvement, as well as helping to build a strategy for my future career. He has helped me realise my career ambitions and how to motivate myself forward even with unsuccessful applications and several rejections.
The mentoring scheme has been a fantastic experience and has helped me to build a new connection and a new friendship.
