Starting out can be hard in those first few years post-school. The OLMC Alumnae wants to give graduates a chance to connect with other Mercy Women who have 'been there, done that' and get tips and connections for the industry they want to join!
In 2016, a new initiative was launched called Mercy Links. The program is the chance for young alumnae (who left OLMC within the last 3 years) to connect with alumnae who are at later stages of their career, in the industry of their choice.
Does the idea of an occasional coffee date or email exchange with another OLMC alumnae in your industry take your fancy?
Do you think you could help out a recent graduate with some tips and connections in your industry?
Mentors: If you are looking for a simple and non-time consuming way to give back to your community, please get in touch and we will connect you with a recent graduate. Click here Susan.Giacomelli@olmc.nsw.edu.au to email through your name, contact details and current work role.
Mentees: If you want to benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience of our alumnae members, click here Susan.Giacomelli@olmc.nsw.edu.au to email through your name, contact details and the industry you would like to enter.
The program is very simple and informal and only involves exchanging email addresses and phone numbers. It is completely up to the mentor and mentee how they want to proceed from there. There is no ongoing commitment required (though this is welcome if it suits both mentor and mentee) - you may decide to meet or exchange emails only once or twice - it's all worthwhile networking!
If you have any queries regarding the program, please contact our Development Officer, Susan Giacomelli Susan.Giacomelli@olmc.nsw.edu.au
