Meet Taylor Cudney, a fourth year Management Internship student majoring in Sustainable Resource and Environmental Management who proved to us that it is possible to gain valuable work experience while doing what you love. Taylor applied for the National Mentoring Program (NMP) and received guidance from a mentor leading to a successful volunteer position with Clean Nova Scotia. Taylor proceeded to develop her business skills and had an amazing experience, here’s her story.
“The National Mentoring Program creates opportunities for university students to gain meaningful work experience at a not-for-profit organization while being mentored by a corporate sponsor from Nova Scotia Power. I got involved with the National Mentoring Program after my first year in the Management Program.
The NMP provided me with an opportunity to gain valuable work experience and apply my business skills and environmental interests in a real world setting. I also developed my leadership and management skills and made many meaningful connections both in the not-for-profit and corporate world. I would highly recommend that students get involved in the National Mentoring Program as it provides a supportive setting to apply your academic knowledge in the real world.”
