a graduate’s take on mentoring

“The For Purpose programme provided an excellent opportunity to begin my career in the not-for-profit sector and contribute in an environment where I can add real value. The mentoring and learning seminars were a key benefit of the programme for me. Mentoring sessions provided an opportunity to work on my development over my 12 month traineeship and the learning seminars were a great way to meet graduates with different experiences from across the sector.I would recommend the For Purpose programme to any graduate who is considering a career in the not-for-profit sector.”
Hayley Kilgallon, Programmes Assistant Social Entrepreneurs Ireland & For Purpose Alumni

“The monthly one-to-one mentoring sessions provide me with the opportunity to develop within my role. My mentor has been a great benefit in guiding my professional development through regular support and advice. He is also able to offer his extensive knowledge of the not-for-profit sector.” Fundraising Graduate 2019
