PACE – Positive Action towards Career Engagement Mentoring

  • Are you a student or jobseeker with disability and want some guidance on the best way to develop your career path?
  • Are you looking to advance your career opportunities?
  • Are you interested in networking in a professional setting?

PACE Mentoring is a mentoring program run by the Australian Network on Disability for students and jobseekers with disability.

For mentees, PACE offers the opportunity to develop essential skills and confidence in a workplace setting, which can assist with career planning, as well as aiding personal and professional development. PACE recognises that job seekers and students with disability frequently find themselves with little or no work experience. PACE aims to assist mentees to become ‘job-ready’ and reduce some of these hurdles.

During the program, the mentor and mentee will set goals which target the individual’s strengths and development needs to achieve clear outcomes. Activities may include:

  • Reviewing and improving resumes and cover letters
  • Mock interviews and how to tackle tough interview questions
  • Worksite visits to gain a complete picture of the work environment
  • Networking with industry professionals
  • Discussing workplace adjustments
  • Building confidence in your stand-out skills and abilities

The program will run between September and December. It will be a flexible arrangement that will include a minimum of six sessions at the mentor’s workplace over three months.
