Mentoring students

Our mentorship program involves businesses hosting 6–7 short meetings with students over the course of a single semester. The meetings are held with a group of 4–6 students on a fortnightly basis. Entry into the program is competitive and companies are involved in the selection process of the students they mentor.

We invite expressions of interest from any size business, from start-ups to multinationals. The time commitment required from hosts is 10–15 hours over 12 weeks.

Female Technology Mentoring Program

Janani undertook a Female Technology Mentoring Program with Deloitte. The program gives female students the opportunity to be mentored by some of Deloitte’s most accomplished technology consulting professionals:

I had the opportunity to meet highly accomplished female professionals at Deloitte and got a real world insight into what life is like as a technology consultant. I was so inspired by what I saw and heard, and since then there is no looking back.

I applied for their graduate program and after attending five rounds of the selection process; I was offered a full time role in Deloitte’s Enterprise Information Management team. The mentoring program gave me so much context and insight about the organisation, which helped me a great deal while preparing for my interview process.

I enjoyed the one-on-one’s with my mentor and we discussed everything ranging from big data, work-life balance to the best restaurant in Melbourne! The mentoring program gave me the opportunity to start building my professional network within Deloitte as a student.
