Helloooo peeps,

PACE - Rita

Ria gains invaluable experience as a mentee at QBE

“Coming into this program, my main goal was to get more familiar with what the workplace is from somebody who is very experienced. I wanted to see the types of things I can do with my degree, and what steps I could take to see what else is out there” Ria.  To read more about Ria’s experience with the PACE Program, please visit our website.


How it works

Students will be paired with an experienced professional who they will meet with six to eight times within a four-month period between May to August. The meetings last between one and two hours. Students can discuss their career goals and aspirations, and get help to develop a plan for their personal and professional development.

Their mentor will help them identity and reach their career development goals and build their confidence in a workplace environment. Meetings with mentors may include:

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