The Elite Network Mentoring Scheme 2016/17 was successfully held on 18 February 2017. Through listening to the interesting stores on career pursuit shared by mentors, Year 1 and Year 2 student mentees gained useful tips as to how to make a good first impression at job interviews, and learnt that personal attributes and exposure are as important as educational background.
