The minute we met was really engaging. Sort of like: 'oh wow, this is really good. I'm gonna get something out of it'.

Talent Connect Mentoring Program

But it was really genuine conversations, you know. It was all career-related which was, you know, it's good to talk about someone in open space. Someone that's not your manager. So I definitely felt confident in discussing, you know, topics about your career and all that.

Through the mentoring experience, I’ve learnt a lot about myself. More specifically around where I am, where I'm going, where I have come from and am I on the right track.

You know, I learnt a lot about that. It was a lot of things that I had discussed with my mentor. So I could say - hey this is actually really good and I'm doing a really good thing.

The advice that I might be giving you, I'll actually reflect back in and say hey Zekija, why aren't you doing this. And so it's helped me in that way as well.

The best advice I have for anyone that we would really want to do it, is just get on to it, you know, do it. There's plenty of support out there, you know, the program is been doing it's been going on for a long time now, you know, and it's only getting get better and better.

At the end of every mentor mentee relationship, there is also a great friendship that's created that continues and has continued even though the program has finished. There is value on both sides.
