Careers e-Award 2019/2020: Career Mentoring

Congratulations to all Career Mentoring participants for the completion of the program!

Introduced in 2014 as an Alumni Mentoring program, the program was revamped in 2018 as the Employer Lead e-Mentoring module, a new initiative under the Nottingham Advantage Award which saw the participation of 4 companies. In 2019, the program has been continued with its new title Career Mentoring which CAS brought in more than 20 employers and alumni mentors to share their experience, knowledge and guidance towards the mentees.

Each mentee will be assigned with one mentor who will communicate with you through online communication such as email, phone call or WhatsApp. For this batch, the mentoring duration was 2 months (2 March – 30 April). The mentoring is suggested to take place once a week. The mentors offered bespoke advice about job applications, graduate recruitment processes and provide a glimpse into the realities of their profession to the mentees.

Please refer below for the list of students who had completed the Careers Mentoring program.


Aiming to celebrate the hard work, contribution and achievements of our students, Careers Advisory Service (CAS) organised its first Careers e-Award Ceremony with its theme “Embracing Excellence” through Microsoft Teams on July 1.
The ceremony started off with the opening speech by the Head of Careers Advisory Service, Ms. Alicia Ch’ng, and followed by ice-breaking games for some fun. Not only that, the students were given the opportunity to gain an insightful sharing on career journey from UNM alumnus, Emily Oi who currently works as a Senior Analyst Senior Analyst, Policy Studies at the Malaysian Green Technology and Climate Change Center.
