How would you like:

  • A business related relationship that looks great on your CV?
  • Inside knowledge of your chosen or potential career idea?
  • A chance to network and broaden your career horizons?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you could benefit from taking part in the Careers Mentoring Programme.

The Career Mentoring Programme connects professionals working in a wide variety of industries with current Heriot-Watt students to support their long-term career planning.

The programme is primarily aimed at open to students in their penultimate year - however, all students are welcome to apply.

Construction Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Urban Studies undergraduate students should note that they will be matched with a mentor through separate mentoring programmes incorporated in to their course of study.

Why not start your mentoring journey today by browsing the lists of currently available mentors in the the A - Z of careers sectors below?

Information for students

The aim of the programme is to give you the opportunity to spend time with a professional working in the career area of interest to you and to gain an insight into the work involved and the kind of skills and knowledge that are required.

The aim of the programme is to give you the opportunity to spend time with a professional working in the career area of interest to you and to gain an insight into the work involved and the kind of skills and knowledge that are required.

Mentors can give advice and help with issues such as job hunting, skills development ideas or applications and interviews advice. They may also be able to answer questions which relate to your course work and increase your understanding of how your academic theory and knowledge is applied in the work place.

Our Mentors are located all over the world, and whilst there are many who are local there are also a few in more distant locations. The commitment therefore may be in the form of email, phone or face-to-face meetings with your mentor.

These can be conducted anytime between November and May and can be as short or as long as you wish, although we expect at least 4 contacts to be made during that time. Face-to-face meetings can be conducted anywhere ranging from the University cafeteria to the Mentor's work place.

Information for mentors

Through mentoring a student you will have an important effect on their career and perhaps even their life! You will be able to share the knowledge and insights that you have gained from your own, and perhaps others' experiences with a young person who is aspiring to be successful in your field.

Previous Mentors became involved because of reasons such as wanting to encourage graduates into their field, being willing to help and guide students, wanting to help undergraduates at their university and in order to develop their own skills.

The time commitment varies but would usually involve an initial meeting with the Mentee of about two hours maximum followed by at least three further meetings. These can vary and could be one-to-one meetings of one hour or could involve the Mentee shadowing you for a day at your place of work.

To apply to become a mentor, or for more information please email the programme co-ordinator Karen Beattie at mentoring@hw.ac.uk

How to apply

Use the A - Z career sector headings below to view the lists of currently available mentors and read a little about their career history and current role.  You can select up to 3 mentors that you would like to be matched with.

The next step is to completing the online application form, indicating the ID number(s) of the Mentor(s), in order of preference, that you wish to be matched with. Although we will make every effort to match you with one of your preferred Mentors, we cannot always guarantee that this will be possible.

Please note: The Careers Service team will deliver information sessions about the Programme at many lectures at the start of Semester 1.

Junior Scientific Officer role involved a lot of practical lab work, writing up of said lab work into reports and presenting at group and project meetings. This kind of role greatly increased my laboratory skills and confidence.
