The FASS Mentorship Programme (FASSMP), established in 2006, provides a link between FASS undergraduates and successful FASS alumni. Providing insights on specific career sectors and how to get ahead, established alumni act as mentors to guide you in charting a career path ahead.
The year-long mentorship programme starts from August each year until July of the following year, and caters specifically to students in their graduating year (applications should be submitted in your penultimate year). Our recommendations are:
- Minimum of 4 meetings, which may take the form of email exchanges, phone chats, tea/lunch chats, office visits, or a combination of these.
- Meetings could discuss matters relating to a specific work sector, career path development, and professional practices.
A call is made in February each year for students to sign up to the FASS MP.
"Despite my mentor's busy schedule, she was always prompt in replying emails and met with me over meals. She even offered me an internship opportunity at the Singapore Tourism Board. At the end of this mentorship, I gained more than just career guidance and personal development. Mentees should not go into this programme with the mindset of leveraging on their mentors solely but to establish a two-way relationship in order to benefit more from mentorship." - Juvy Pang, Geography Major
