20090711 Cambridge mentorship program summer 2009 Part 1

We had our 1st session of the mentorship program on Sat 11 July, the topic was CV and interview workshop. I spoke along side with Stan, Herbert, Karen and Becky. Herbert had kindly prepared a structured discussion framework to share with the attendants (students and young alumni alike), we all chip in on our stories and advice. The response was great and we over-ran for by 1.5 hrs. So glad that we have found the right format since last year to host such event, both the attendants and speakers told me that they enjoyed and learned a lot :-)

1 down 3 to go.
