The career-buddy program will connect the International HDR Ambassadors in groups of 2-4 students as ‘career buddies’.
Career-buddies are peers that support each other in their career goals and professional development. This may involve forwarding on interesting jobs or opportunities, talking through possible career pathways, sharing networks, providing feedback on resumes and other application material, or suggesting skills development.
Unlike most buddy or mentoring programs at professional organisations, no buddy is expected to have more experience, expertise, or seniority than another. This is a mutually beneficial two-way relationship in which both buddies offer support and learn from each other.
The program will be delivered in January 2019.
