Being a Good Mentee
*This credential is only available to current RMIT students
Finding a skilled mentor in your chosen field can be extremely useful - and the knowledge, experience and contacts they've acquired can give an invaluable boost to your career.
But finding a mentorship is only half the battle; knowing how to capitalise on your mentoring relationship can make all the difference, helping you establishing a constructive and beneficial partnership rather than having things end in frustration.
This credential gives you the practical skills and knowledge to properly handle a mentoring relationship. You'll learn how to manage a mentor partnership, what your mentor is likely to expect from you, and how to get the most out of the experience - from knowledge and industry insights to professional contacts.
