Why Emmanuel decided to request a mentor?

"The reason I chose to request a mentor was because I wanted to gain a genuine insight into the day-to-day life of a lawyer and through this insight, I was able to make an informed decision about my future career path. In addition, I also wanted to benefit from the anecdotal career advice that having an experienced mentor could provide me with and this ultimately taught me the essential “do’s and don’ts” to watch out for when applying for graduate positions."

What you got out of being mentored / the difference which it made to you and your employability?

"Being mentored has also boosted my confidence as I am now consistently encouraged to push myself further, and choose more ambitious goals and challenges. Having a mentor has also provided an edge to my employability as I can now leverage the in-depth industry insight that I have gained from being mentored in job applications and in interviews."
