Mentoring opportunities for students with disability studying in Finance-related fields

The Australian Network on Disability is partnering with Cummins Inc, a global power leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of diesel and natural gas engines, to provide Business, Commerce, Economics and Finance students with disability the opportunity to be mentored by industry professionals as part of the PACE Mentoring program.

There are a number of positions still available for students who want to improve their industry knowledge and work-based skills, as well as network with seasoned professionals in the finance field. During the program, students will work with their mentors to set career goals, discuss skills and experience, and learn how to best promote their capabilities to future employers. Other activities may include:

  • Reviewing resumes and cover letters
  • Mock interviews
  • Worksite visits
  • Networking with other professionals
  • Discussing workplace adjustments
  • Building confidence.

Students will meet with their mentors 6-8 times over a 12 week period. Meetings can be arranged around work and study commitments, and will generally be of 1-2 hours duration.

PACE offers students with disability the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in a workplace setting, which can assist them in planning their career journey, as well as aiding their personal and professional development.
