FAQ and other Important Information

GDEXA stands for Global Digital Excellence Association and is a non-profit organization providing students, fresh-graduates or young professional (Talents) a free mentorship for digital upskilling and work experience. Selected Mentors from around the world are coaching the Talents on a volunteer basis, mainly remotely, and sharing their expertise about industry trends, market insights and career advice.

Career & Attachment Office (CAO) has collaborated with GDEXA to shortlist a group of 8 Global Mentors to mentor NTU students (Talents). Selected Talents will be matched to a Global Mentor to learn invaluable industry skills and experiences from the Mentors for a period of 1 month, in these areas:

  • Personal Coaching
  • Career Advisory
  • Thought Leadership
  • Global Network

This Global Mentorship programme will take place from 27th February to 11th April 2022 (~6 weeks). This is a flexible, self-paced programme where virtual meetings are arranged between Mentors and Talents upon availability. Talents must commit to meeting their Mentors for at least 3 hours within this period.

Students are to read through the list of available Mentors along with their experience and skills set (see pages 7-8) and indicate their preference during registration. After registration ends, CAO will work on the matching process based upon your interests and release the results via email. As a guide, 2-3 students (Talents) will be paired with 1 Mentor. Kindly note that only shortlisted candidates will be notified in September.

Meetings will be held virtually through online conferencing tools (e.g., Zoom). The First meeting between Mentors and Talents will be scheduled in the week of 13 September, evenings e.g., 8pm-9pm in Singapore time. As Mentors are located around the world, Talents must take the initiative to schedule online meetings with their chosen Mentors.

Talents are required to commit at least 3 hours during the programme period to meet their Mentors. Talents must prepare for the meetings before meeting the Global Mentors. There will also be three exclusive Masterclasses which are open to all Talents to attend. At the end of the programme, there will be a Finale session (tentatively on 29 Oct, Friday) where all Talents will be required to share their learnings. The session will be attended by all Talents, Mentors and CAO. Pls see pages 5-6 for an example of the commitment required.

There is no monetary compensation for both the Mentors and Talents as this is a voluntary programme. Talents will receive invaluable sharing of industry specialized skills and experience from their Global Mentors. Upon successful completion of the programme, Talents will receive a Certificate of Participation from CAO. 

This programme is exclusively for students who are Mentees in the Mentorship Community.
