Mentees who walk with us say their early careers are often riddled with imposter syndrome, feelings of under qualification, disorientation and disillusion. Did I make the right career choice? How do I set myself up for success early on? Is it smart to throw away a career I’m not loving this early on? How do I develop transferable skills so I can explore other options?
This Conversation Series event will answer these important FAQs and give you the opportunity to ask our leading Auckland mentors any questions of your own! You’ll hear from exceptional women about the non-linear and explorative paths their careers have taken, including Auckland mentee Mere Rewi-Leauga.
Tracy Taylor and Carol Brown are living proof that your starting point is not your ending point, and have lived experience crafting a career that aligns with their values and continues evolving down new avenues. You’ll leave this conversation with clarity, inspired by the breadth of exciting career opportunities out there and well-equipped to start making moves!
