“The Industry Mentoring Program connected me with a perfect mentor, who helped create concrete career goals, alongside an action plan, rather than my previous vague ideas at a career. The knowledge an industry professional has is a valuable asset and for them to volunteer their time and expertise to support your growth is invaluable. Her invaluable insight into her profession singlehandedly changed my career path, giving me a solid, actionable goal to pursue.”
