Mentorship

Our highly successful mentorship program gives students the opportunity to be mentored by a graduate of the Jerusalem Business School who has gone on to hold a senior position in industry or the public sector.

All our mentors are happy to share the benefit of their experience to help you, through networking, development of soft skills, introductions to companies and open positions, as well as advising on specific issues you may have in the early stages of your professional path.

Each mentor is assigned up to five ‘mentees’, and meets with them every month or two throughout the year, both in a group and individually.  These meetings may take a variety of forms, from discussions about interpersonal relationships at work, to tours of high-tech companies - depending on the nature of the group and the mentor themselves.

To ensure that students are paired with the mentor best suited to them and their areas of interest, there is an online application process, followed by a telephone interview.
