I was always asking my mentor for advice and continue to keep contact today. From help on time management with my studies. To support with improving my CV and application forms. To any tips or ideas with the direction I should be heading with my studies. My mentor was effective in responding to my queries about future career options and advice with my studies. I was incredibly fortunate to be able to visit my mentor's place of work, learn about the Graduate Scheme available and network with main key stakeholders in my mentor's organisation. As well as that I also was able to meet and network with the managing director of one of the UK's Top 5 Environmental Consultancies.
Absolutely! I feel in particular, my network skills and own personal development has improved thanks to the connections and contacts I have been able to make through the FNS Alumni Mentoring Scheme.
Yes very much so. From this I am now currently working on my own dissertation proposal in an attempt to help improve my future graduate prospects after graduation. The FNS Alumni Mentoring Scheme has significantly helped shape my direction thanks to the mentor I was matched with.
Just don't hesitate, and apply! This for me has genuinely been an invaluable opportunity. If you want help to understand your career aims, network and improve understanding what you want to do after the University of Stirling. Then the FNS Alumni Mentoring Scheme is 100% worth partaking in.
Thank you FNS Alumni Mentoring Scheme I sincerely hope students can continue to use this!
