Student and mentor

Mentoring

Wyvern career mentors for all second, third and postgraduate students are needed for 2016

What do you know now that you wish you knew when you were entering the workforce? Do you have insight and experience that you are willing to share? Looking for a meaningful way to give of yourself? Join us as we build for eternity.

This year we have moved to formalise the professional readiness and development program at Queen’s College. And the flagship offering is connecting each graduate and third year student with a professional mentor. Our students come from all walks, disciplines and locations – from audiology to zoology, from Australia to Zimbabwe. The upshot? Well, odds are that we want your skillset and expertise.

Conscious of your time and demands, we have designed the program to be both flexible and supported. All we ask is for two dinners (an introduction to your mentee and a formal ‘thank you’ in November) and two coffees across the course of the year. Any additional engagement is at your discretion.

Please put your hand up for this incredibly rewarding and highly valuable opportunity to contribute. Register your interest by emailing Jacob Workman, the head of the professional development subcommittee, at archwyvern@queens.unimelb.edu.au.

And just by way of example… how could anyone possibly say no to this?!

My name is Olivia, and I am currently undertaking my Master of Psychology in Clinical Neuropsychology, and intend to start my PhD this year, in combination with the remainder of my masters. In 2015 I undertook and completed the first year of my masters. In 2016 I will start my second year placements across a range of neuropsychological settings. As mentioned earlier, I also plan to start my PhD this year. My research interests are particularly in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, and I hope to embark on a project within this field. In the future I would like to work both clinically in the neuropsychology field and also in clinical research, and I hope that this research will contribute to what we know about the brain and cognition. Olivia – Current Graduate Student seeking a mentor
