Based on the success of the inaugural YCW London Mentorship Program in 2017-18, we are pleased to announce that we will be accepting a new cohort of mentors and mentees in 2018-19.
We are now seeking applications to join the Program as a mentor. This is an excellent opportunity for London-based YCW members to play a more active role in the China-watching community, to influence the next generation of talented China thought-leaders, and to build their own mentorship skills.
Mentors will ideally be mid-senior career professionals with experience of working in or with China. Mentees will mostly be postgraduate level students and young professionals with an interest in China. The call for mentees will occur in the autumn of 2018.
The Program will run from October 2018 – July 2019, during which time mentors and mentees will meet regularly to discuss career aspirations and job hunting techniques. Meetings will be both on a one-on-one basis, as well as with the wider cohort. Through the Program, mentees and their mentors will have networking opportunities through career-based workshops and a global China-watching community.
- Resident in London October 2018 – July 2019;
- Able to commit 3-5 hours a month for the duration of the Program;
- Able to commit to regular communication with appointed mentee;
- At least 5 years of professional experience in China or working on China-related issues;
- Passionate about supporting and developing the next generation of China thought leaders.
