Career Chats with Sofia Begum

Career Chats

In these sessions, participants will meet with our Career Mentors who will get to know you, the work you do, your aims and ambitions, and help you to develop strategies to help you achieve your goals. This could extend to possible career paths, professional development courses, and companies and individuals to connect and work or volunteer with. 

Students, graduates, or anyone looking to expand your area of work or to start on a new journey altogether. These sessions are open to all. Our Career Mentors will offer you fresh perspectives. Kickstart your journey today!  Each Session is a group consultation (of up to 5pax) with the Career Mentor.
