How it Works

Each Student or Young Professional (Mentee) sits at one of the tables with one Mentor. Each Mentor gets 10 minutes at the table to talk about their personal career background, advice on how to develop a career/life path, and answer questions (Examples: “what was one difficult challenge you faced in your career and how did you overcome it?; What are 3 tips you learned over the years that you wish you knew earlier as a student or young professional?). After 10 minutes, the mentor must rotate to the next table and meet a new set of Mentees!

A networking event will take place after the speed mentoring event and will allow all the participants to further network and follow up on discussions with the mentors.

There is no registration fee, although places are limited, so book your participation at the SpaceOps Speed Mentoring session today!
