  • Monitoring the process is very enjoyable for the participant and they start feeling achievement early on.

What is a mentoring program?

  • a program that teams a student with a professional from their area of study,
  • providing the student with industry knowledge, insight and guidance.

Mentoring is most often defined as a professional relationship in which an experienced person (the mentor) assists another (the mentee) in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance the less-experienced person’s professional and personal growth. At Dream Internship, interns will have both an internal mentor within the company they intern with, and an external mentor from Dream Internship.

Our mentoring programs include career planning to provide you with clarity, personal branding workshops to perfect your presentation, support to gain confidence, and connections to industry people, knowledge and networks.

People often confuse mentoring and coaching. Though related, they are not the same. A mentor may coach, but a coach is not a mentor. Mentoring is “relational,” while coaching is “functional.” There are other significant differences.


Coaching characteristics

  • Managers coach all of their staff as a required part of the job
  • Coaching takes place within the confines of a formal manager-employee relationship
  • Focuses on developing individuals within their current jobs
  • Interest is functional, arising out of the need to ensure that individuals can perform the tasks required to the best of their abilities
  • Relationship tends to be initiated and driven by an individual’s manager
  • Relationship is finite – ends as an individual transfers to another job


Mentoring characteristics

  • Takes place outside of a line manager-employee relationship, at the mutual consent of a mentor and the person being mentored
  • Is career-focused or focuses on professional development that may be outside a mentee’s area of work
  • Relationship is personal – a mentor provides both professional and personal support
  • Relationship may be initiated by a mentor or created through a match initiated by the organization
  • Relationship crosses job boundaries
  • Relationship may last for a specific period of time (nine months to a year) in a formal program, at which point the pair may continue in an informal mentoring relationship


Do I have to sign up for the mentoring program?

  • you do not have to sign up for the mentoring program.
  • we do however strongly recommend it.

The mentoring program is there to take participants from one level to the next regardless of where they are when they start out. Everyone needs to work on their personal development to further themselves in life and the mentoring program accelerates personal and career development for any participant.

What if I am far away and cannot attend the mentoring program physically?

  • it can be done over the phone for students who are in the country or through Skype.
  • we send participants weekly tasks and resources by e-mail and check them weekly during online mentoring sessions.




Article on Mentoring programs released by Dream Internship in April 2012

The education landscape is rapidly moving towards a renaissance of program delivery. People are increasingly interested in personalised and customised programs suited to the individual of the 21st century.

An important idea in the definition of a university is the notion of academic freedom. Interestingly however, academic freedom is no longer the reality of today’s university practice. If academic freedom refers to the freedom of inquiry by students and faculty members as essential to the mission of the academy, it is long lost. No field is generalised and standardised and limited by beurocracy more so than the university.

In March 2012, The Economist wrote an article on American and Japanese students wisdom in relation to age. The study revealed that due to mentoring in Japan, students/  mentees, were equally as wise as their elders/ mentors, as opposed to wisdom being acquired with age in Americans. This is a wonderful example of the cultural representation of responsibility.

In Japan, menthes are rewarded with the notion that they are wise when they learn the words of wisdom taught to them by their mentors. In America, one is not wee unless one is old, and society therefore take responsibility and opportunity away from their young ones by putting an age limit on on wisdom. If you cannot be wise in your youth, and if you cannot be respected as a wise person in your youth, could this not be seen as discouraging?

Yes we have less experience and less information as young in terms of time. However, the internet and free information along with it, has provided younger generations with an immense amount of opportunity for knowledge. They may not always know what to do with it, which is why they still need guidance, however they are very intelligent and learn very fast, so it is to the benefit of employers and organisations world-wide to invest in mentoring programs between younger and more mature employees.
