Opportunities for Students with Disability – PACE Mentoring Autumn 2019
The Australian Network on Disability are delighted to inform you that student applications for the PACE Mentoring Program Autumn 2019 are now open!
Positive Action towards Career Engagement (PACE Mentoring) connects students and jobseekers with disability with mentors from leading Australian businesses. It gives students an opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in a workplace setting. Previous mentors have come from organisations such as, ANZ Bank, Victoria Police, Bupa, Cummins, Australian Government Departments etc.
“Coming into this program, my main goal was to get more familiar with what the workplace is from somebody who is very experienced. I wanted to see the types of things I can do with my degree, and what steps I could take to see what else is out there” Ria. To read more about Ria’s experience with the PACE Program, please visit our website.
How it works
Students will be paired with an experienced professional who they will meet with six to eight times within a four-month period between May to August. The meetings last between one and two hours. Students can discuss their career goals and aspirations, and get help to develop a plan for their personal and professional development.
Their mentor will help them identity and reach their career development goals and build their confidence in a workplace environment. Meetings with mentors may include:
- Reviewing resumes and cover letters
- Mock interviews
- Networking with other professionals
- Building confidence
- Attending events and team meetings.
