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.
