The Católica Porto Business School Mentoring Programme, which has Google official support, aims to prepare today's students for the challenges they may encounter in the labour market by having contact with well-reputed professionals.
The mentees are 2nd cycle students in the Católica Porto Business School and the mentors are a group of professionals, mainly in the fields of economics and management, who establish a close relationship with the Católica Porto Business School as alumni or strategic partners. Mentors may be invited or enroll on their own initiative.
The mentor's role is:
- To share their route, their experiences and the choices that marked their career, creating a close relationship with the mentee;
- To contribute to a better understanding of the mentee in terms of functions, training, activity sectors, future challenges, among others;
- To facilitate networking with professionals and signal opportunities to be explored by the mentee.
All mentors and mentees can integrate the Mentoring Programme community on Google+, an exclusive group that allows contact between all participants involved in the Mentoring Programme.
Mentors are requested a minimum of 6 contacts – face-to-face or virtual meetings, e-mail response, visit the company where the mentor works, among others – in a maximum of 6 hours per year.
