Career Mentor Scheme

The Career Mentor Scheme (CMS) is a unique program developed by MCP to help students transition from studies to career and business. Under the CMS we work with students to asses their career objectives and identify their strength and witnesses. We then work on polishing their CV/résumé and building up their interviewing skills and other skills relevant to the profession of their choice. Then we match the students with experienced professionals in their chosen field so they can get specific careers advice, insight, support and guidance into their profession and sector. Matching the professionals (mentors) with students (mentees) provides an opportunity for students to benefit from the industry knowledge and career experience of their mentors and enables them to develop the attitudes, skills and confidence they need to succeed in their future endeavors.

The first of its kind and with proven track record, our CMS program provides students with practical tips for acquiring specific industry experience and navigating the business world after graduating from college. The CMS program presents students with a wealth of information and resources to help them achieve their full potential. From résumé workshops to time management skill building exercises and work placement programs, our experts are here to help.
