NGN Australia mentoring program 2022: mentee applications now open

Are you looking to progress your career and talk with highly experienced professionals from your industry? Would you like to develop your technical and personal skills in one-on-one meetings with a Mentor who has been matched to help you get the most out of your mentoring relationship? Launching in January 2022, the CIGRE NGN Mentoring Program is a free program open to all CIGRE NGN members working in the power industry.

The CIGRE NGN Mentoring Program aims to connect CIGRE Australia members with substantial industry experience with early career CIGRE NGN members who may be seeking some guidance and assistance in the development of their careers. The Mentor will draw on their experience and knowledge to assist the Mentee through challenges faced in their early power industry career. This assistance may be in many forms such as technical, professional or inter-personal advice/guidance. The focus of the Mentor and Mentee meetings will be flexible and will depend on what the particular Mentor and Mentee would like to get out of the relationship. The duration of the mentoring program is also flexible and can be decided upon once the Mentor and Mentee both get to know what they’re hoping to get out of the relationship.

Mentee applicants must be a CIGRE NGN member and currently working in the power industry.
