New Online Mentoring & Advice Programme

We are excited to announce the launch of the IDS Alumni online Mentoring and Advice Programme!

Online mentoring and advice is now available on the IDS alumni website.
You can use the service to:
a) find a long-term mentor (we recommend initially 6 months) and,
b) find advice on specific queries. For example, help with relocating to a new country/region, preparing for an interview, writing an application, or getting industry specific help. Help with answering these kind of questions won’t necessarily include setting up a mentoring contract (although all the information to help you do this is available should you wish to set one up).

NB: For all types of help and advice IDS refers to those looking for help mentees and those offering help mentors. We also expect everyone using the IDS mentoring and advice programme to abide by the code of conduct outlined in the alumni-alumni mentoring code and the alumni-student code
