“Mentor: Someone whose hindsight can become your foresight”
It takes more than a degree to induct college-graduates into the society and transform them into responsible citizens. And a lot more to recognise the potential in a student and make them realise the contemporary scenario. However, it all starts with a small step : mentor-ship from the experienced. In a survey of Fortune 500 companies, 96% of executives credited mentoring as an important developmental tool. 75% said mentoring played a key role in their career success. Who else could share a stronger bond with the students of an institute and guide them through the ground realities of the work-a-day world than the alumni of the institute?
Hence, Deogiri Institute of Engineering and Management Studies, is looking forward to fostering and nurturing a Student “Mentorship Programme”. The prototype of the proposed mentorship programme aims at a healthy interaction between an interested mentor and an eager protege. This programme matches the profiles of the applicant and the alumni based on common goals and career interest.The mentors would advice the protege on any sort of problems faced by them and would be able to provide information related to professional and career development. Issues related to career path, resumes, course selection, international perspectives and work/family could be discussed with the mentors.The students have the opportunity to remain in contact with the mentors even after graduating.
