  • To find a job, you sometimes need a helping hand, especially when you’re young and not familiar with labour market laws. Having a mentor allows you to take stock of your background, your desires, and to respond to job offers more effectively … and it works!

    What is a mentor?

    At DUO for a JOB, a mentor is somebody who is available and who has experience in your professional field, who has been trained and who accompanies you for a maximum period of 6 months. Each week, she/he advises you, answers your questions, advises how to promote your skills, while giving you the benefit of her/his practical experience feedback. It’s a good way to take an objective look at yourself, to encourage your ambition and your self-confidence, or to extend your network.

    quote DUO is just the programme I needed. It enabled me to go further in my search efforts towards employment. I gained experience. I regret that I did not hear about this programme much sooner but I am very proud of all I have learned from it quote
