Mentoring (KEW-NET)

Kent Experiences of Work (KEW-NET) is a professional mentoring and networking tool for Kent students and graduates. The network is made up of alumni and business professionals connected to the University who are offering:

  • Advice via email or telephone
  • To review your CV or application form
  • Visits to work places or insight days
  • Possible work experience or internships

In order to maximise your success on the system, please follow some basic rules;

  • Be professional – these are potential employers, so be courteous and slightly formal
  • Be proactive – you will get nowhere being nervous or shy. To help you, mentors are asked to specify the type of assistance they are willing/able to give. Contact everyone that might be useful and ask questions
  • Be purposeful – have a reason for contacting the alumnus, they are busy people that want to help you. Think about how they can do that

If you would like any help with setting up a profile, or with how to approach other users of the system, please email careerhelp@kent.ac.uk and we can arrange support.
