                                     managers. We have two program streams named Career Booster and
                                     Career Development. Through the feedback that we received from our
                                     student and academic bodies, we identified the struggle that some of
                                     the students or entry level project practitioners might have in transition
                                     from university to the industry. Career Booster mentoring program is
                                     designed to bridge this gap and help the participants to achieve their
                                     short term career goals.

                                     Career Development is our next mentoring program which is designed
                                     for mid-career and senior professionals who would like to further develop
                                     their career through longer term objectives and soft skills. So, no matter

 PMI ADELAIDE                        what stage you are in your career, PMI Adelaide mentoring program has
                                     something for you.
