OP1/AfSU/8 Professional Mentor

This is an incredibly rewarding opportunity for professionals who wish to support the younger generations of Afghanistan's diaspora.

Professional Mentors (PM) are responsible for assisting students who contact AfSU for help and assist them using the subject team they have been allocated to.

You will be responsible for providing support to undergraduate/postgraduate level students with subject help or advice on entering the job market. This help will typically be through the form of emails, and will run on an ad hoc basis based on the needs of the student. We recommend meeting with the student you have been assigned to for roughly thirty minutes-one hour a month virtually on MS Teams, as well as through AfSU events.

The PM usually performs the following roles, but is not limited to:

  • (a) assisting in the running and maintenance of the AfSU Mentorship Programme by mentoring university level students, in an in-person or virtual setting, 1-1.
  • (b) demonstrating proficiency in providing academic support (where possible) and providing relevant advice on entry to post-university job markets or avenues;
  • (c) holding events or being involved in academic conferences;
  • (d) holding subject-specific knowledge on subjects that university students may benefit from.

We recommend PMs have the following skill sets:

  • Strong sense of belonging and working with a team.
  • Happy to work with younger students who require help with their academic lives. Able to dedicate time to this and assist people to the best of their ability.
  • Able to communicate on and use MS Teams.
  • You should be willing to attend Team AfSU events and participate in the union's activities to the best of your ability. You should also demonstrate professionalism and take initiative. We encourage confidence in suggesting new ideas and concepts. 

AfSU requires the following from all applicants:

  • You must be a current professional working in industry.
  • You must not have a criminal record.
  • You will be expected to abide by the AfSU Constitution and various other policies which you will be acquainted with should your application be accepted. We take discipline extremely seriously and so you will be expected to conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times and especially as a representative of the AfSU brand.
