MCSA Mentoring programme seeks Waikato based communications professionals

18 February 2016

The Management Communications Students’ Association (MCSA) is working alongside the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand (PRINZ) to connect young and innovative undergraduates with Waikato based Public Relations professionals.

This mentoring project aims to:

  • Support young adults by fostering in them ambition for their future career as well as a desire to strengthen their character and leadership potential.
  • Create a unique opportunity for professionals to meet top communications students eager to work in the industry.
  • Promote professional development through the PRINZ RIVER CPD Professional Development programme.
  • Clarify the skills and knowledge necessary to work professionally in the communications scene.
  • Enlighten students as to potential areas of communications that could be of interest to them.

This project depends on the cooperation of communications professionals to be mentors.

How mentoring will run:

1. MCSA-PRINZ student members apply to be paired with a mentor

2. Top applicants are chosen by the MCSA executive board and paired with their mentor

3. Mentor is given the contact details of the communications student and vis versa

4. The two parties organise how they would like the mentoring to work

5. Mentor may choose how they are available: face-to-face/skype/phone/email

6. The mentor could chose to commit for one semester or a full year.

Mentors will receive 10 RIVER CPD points for their involvement in this project
