Looking for personalized career development? Become a Mentor or Mentee!

Applications for the 2023 Mentorship Program will open next year! 


 Overview

​CFA Society Pakistan has launched the first ever 'Mentorship Program' for its members in Pakistan. It is a volunteer-led program which supports members in developing skills to grow and advance their careers. Through this program, CFA Society Pakistan will assign suitable Finance and Investment Professionals as mentors to support, nurture, and guide Mentees to assist them in achieving their career goals. The Mentees are also members of CFA Society Pakistan. 
 
The CFA Society Pakistan Mentorship Program will run for a period of six months from September 2022 to February 2023. Through this program, we aim to provide an opportunity to the young members of CFA Society Pakistan to interact with senior members and benefit from their knowledge and experience.

 How it works?

During this program, the Mentees and Mentors will get a chance to engage in online networking sessions, and participate in career development events and workshops to enhance their interpersonal and leadership skills.

As part of the program, both parties would meet voluntarily fominimum 30 minutes every month over a period of six months to discuss the potential career development pathways. Mentors and Mentees can spend more time if agreed between the parties.

The closing event of the program is planned to be held in March 2023, where Mentors and Mentees will be invited to celebrate, network, and share their experiences from the program.
