About the audience:

In our virtual audience, we welcome high school or university students, those on a gap year, career shifters or anyone looking for inspiration. They join the panels for the familiar setting and honest sharing. The event is usually 1,5-hour long, no pre-cooked presentation is necessary, because you will participate in a moderated but informal discussion. You will receive a shortlist of questions tailored specifically for your panel, and you will meet the fellow panellists and moderators before the actual panel.

As a mentor

Application | Info sheet

Mentorship is an integral part of our multi-day programmes (currently, Youth Week): each mentor works with a participant in the six months following the programme (September 2022 - February 2023). The goal is support participants in their project or career development: to stay on track, troubleshoot and innovate. As a mentor, you'll have six calls with your mentee in that six-month period and be available for occasional emails. It's a great way to share your experience with the next generation and to make a difference to an individual on your own schedule!

Interested? You can find more details here. The mentorship application can be found here, and feel free to contact us at mentor@careersinthecommongood.com with any questions.
