Applications are open for the 2019 PACE Mentoring Program

News story

PACE Mentoring connects students and job seekers with a disability with mentors from leading Australian businesses. You’ll be matched to an experienced professional who will help you identify and reach your career development goals and build your confidence in a workplace environment.

How does it work?

PACE runs across 16 weeks between April and August. You’ll meet with your mentor once a fortnight during that time. Meetings last around one to two hours and are planned to suit you and your mentor’s schedules.

After you apply, we match you with a mentor based on the information provided in your application. Consideration for matching includes your preferred industry, the skills you want to develop, the goals you set, and your location.

Mentees can discuss their career goals and aspirations, and get help to develop a plan for their personal and professional development. Meetings with mentors may include:

  • Reviewing resumes and cover letters
  • Mock interviews
  • Networking with other professionals
  • Building confidence
  • Attending events and team meetings
