To equip Risk and Insurance Management (RIM) undergraduate students with better industry exposure and enhance their relevant skill-sets for future career challenges, the AR Mentorship Programme 2015-16 was kicked off on 14 October with strong support from the insurance industry.
Entering its second year, the Mentorship Programme, supported by the AR Charitable Foundation Scholarship Scheme, enables students to understand the operation of the RIM industry and develop relevant work skills to fulfill the requirements of employers in the industry. It also facilitates students’ career planning and preparation for joining the insurance industry, and develops their self-motivation to communicate with insurance professionals and explore opportunities in the industry.
During the one-year mentoring period in 2015-2016, 21 RIM student mentees from Lingnan University will be involved in a diverse range of professional development and career counseling activities in insurance including sharing sessions, guest talks, career training workshops and recruitment talks. Eight experts and senior executives in the insurance sector will participate in the programme as mentors.
