The team at Kim Wilson & Co are passionate about giving back to the profession and being involved in the community. Part of that involvement includes volunteering time to be a mentor to law students and recent law graduates.
Our Elyce Lines is part of the Murdoch Industry Mentoring (“MIM”) program run by the Murdoch University Guild in partnership with the Murdoch University’s Careers Centre and Alumni Relations. This program was launched in 2018 and involves matching up Mentors and Mentees based on areas of interest, goals for the Mentor/Mentee relationship, and career aspirations.
After the Mentor and Mentee have been matched, it is up to them to shape their relationship, and work together to achieve the goals they each set. The goals can include:
- Assistance with resumes and covering letters;
- General advice about the profession;
- Discussions about the transition from university to working life; or
- Building networks for the future.
