SMS Mentoring Program 2014 Graduation Event

Not long ago, I featured a post on this blog regarding a mentoring initiative run by the Sydney Marketing Society (SMS). The 8-week program that I participated in, ran throughout July to September, and was a unique opportunity for young marketing talent to connect with leading employers in the marketing sector.

To mark the completion of this year’s program, SMS held a graduation event at the University of Sydney Business School CBD Campus, inviting all current mentors and mentees, as well as guest speakers Allan Herman van Breukelen and Amer, who spoke about their involvement in the program in the previous year.

My personal experience as a mentee of this program was very positive, and I found it an invaluable opportunity to seek advice from an industry professional that had successfully navigated the daunting prospect of seeking graduate employment, and was more than open to assist me in making the same transition.

Among this year’s Master of Marketing cohort, it was great to see familiar faces such as Melissa Downes and Gemma Valpiani also participating in this program, and I hope that students from our course continue this involvement with the various initiatives offered by SMS, and in particular, next year’s SMS Mentoring Program.
