VTACmag’s 30 Minute Mentor

VTAC is currently looking for Year 12 students to participate in VTACmag’s 30 Minute Mentor.

Last year, 30 Minute Mentor was one of the most popular sections in the magazine. Students were paired with mentors who could answer questions about their industry and what it’s like to work in their field of interest day to day. The mentors last year included a psychologist, a photographer and a pathologist (all the P’s!) The students involved each had a 30 minute conference call with their mentors in which they could ask questions about career pathways, salaries, typical duties, lifestyle considerations and anything else they wanted to know about their future careers. All of the students had great questions and got a lot out of the experience.
