Queen Margaret University's Employer Mentoring Programme is in its second year after successful pilot in 2013-2014. The programme with works with QMU Alumni and industry professionals seeking to offer employment mentoring to groups for whom statistics show that it can be difficult to find employment. The programme gives committed and enthusiastic students the opportunity to meet with an experienced individual from a relevant sector, who are willing to offer their time, advice and inside knowledge surrounding the world of work.rnrnThe programme aims to match forty undergraduate students with employer mentors in 2014-2015. Students are expected to meet with their mentor a minimum of four times, normally within the mentor's place of work, between October and the end of May. The meetings will focus on topics of particular interest to the student, which ensures the mentoring focuses directly on the needs of the mentee. rnrnWe hope to consolidate the programme this year and further develop it in 2015-16.
