Joanna is a first-year PhD student in Marketing and she is a mentee; her mentor is Tatiani, a PhD student in Management. The mentees feel more comfortable in speaking to their mentors, who are students like them, instead of approaching their supervisor directly. Mentors use their own experiences as a first-year PhD student and pass on their learning and wisdom to their mentees. This is a face-to-face and one-to-one relationship, which helps both the mentee and mentor to learn from each other. To summarise, it is like having one’s own personal trainer.
