Mentorship Program

Next >     

Program overview

We want to give our economic talent the tailored advice they need to succeed in the economics profession.

This year, ESA NSW in conjunction with YEN NSW will launch the inaugural YEN Mentorship Program. This program aims to provide young economists with guidance and support as they embark on a career in economics. In doing so, we hope to foster long-lasting connections across the diverse sectors of economics and fuel a life-long passion for the discipline.

Mentors and mentees will be connected based on their experience, fields of interest, career goals and … chemistry. Upon filling out the application, successful applicants will be invited to our very own ‘mentorship match-up’ event, where each participant will meet a handful of potential mentors/mentees.

We’ll then link you up, and make sure you stay connected through our events throughout the program.
