Coaching is available for those that are new to industry, as well as those that are experienced.Our coaching and mentoring process is flexible, however the below outlines a common structure that we provide.
Coaching begins with a rigorous insight into the industry and the individual roles within that sector. This is the most important step in coaching. Students are often expected to pursue careers in industries, which they have a lack of exposure to. In this step, your mentor will illustrate the structure, organisation and culture of your chosen industry.
Competitive careers often have academic requirements. It is important to know whether you have the correct skillset, attitude and credentials to be able to achieve within the career path you are choosing to pursue. Your mentor will speak to you in depth about yout academic and non-academic background and explain to you how your credentials would look to a future employer. Where there are any shortfalls in your academic history, your coach will guide you on how to rectify any potential issues.
It is better to learn from the mistakes of others, than to learn from your own mistakes.
