Being a mentor is more than just “mentoring”. You are developing your leadership skills, improving your communication, improving your career prospects plus much more.
As a mentor you will be helping someone make one of the biggest decisions. Your influence could impact them hugely. Don’t let this put you off! This is not only helpful for the mentee but it’s beneficial for you too.
You’ll be working with people from various backgrounds and cultures, a great way to improve your communication and interpersonal skills; something to add on your CV! Plus, it will strengthen your understanding of your course/ university in more depth.
You’ll be exposed to a different perspective and way of thinking, teaching you something new. The best part, you’ll earn loads of positive karma points! Helping another, helps you too!
