Make a difference to your juniors at SIM GE by playing the role of an Alumni Mentor. Your sharing of life insights and work experiences will be important to our students as they prepare to launch themselves into the global marketplace.
What is Project Protégé?
Launched in 2012, Project Protégé is a joint collaboration of the Career Development Office and Alumni Engagement at SIM Global Education (SIM GE).
This is a structured 4 months mentoring programme which provides a platform for SIM GE alumni to make meaningful contributions by investing their time in shaping young minds and to their juniors' career journey. The mentors are from diverse industries with the multitude of experiences will be involved in sharing their valuable professional expertise, career advice, as well as job search strategies.
Over the years, Project Protégé has successfully partnered close to 100 alumni mentors to over 300 student mentees.
Who can join Project Protégé?
• Mentees: Any current students can join Project Protégé as mentees. Final year students will, however,
receive priority in signing up, selection and pairing of mentors.
• Mentors: Any alumni with work or professional experience, and keen to give back voluntarily to alma mater
are welcomed to join as mentors.
Any SIM GE industry partners keen to guide students in their career transition, are also invited to volunteer as
mentors. In 2018, Alumni Engagement partnered with CPA Australia and Todo Todo to have their members on board
to guide students in discovering their career pathways and opportunities within the industry.
The role of a mentor is to encourage students and actively support them in clarifying their career direction. As a mentor, you have to be keen to share your experience and knowledge to support the development of the students.
Mentors may be involved in sharing of:
• Success stories
• Personal best practices
• Philosophy, principles and practices of management
