The vision of the mentorship program is to reach out to other universities in due course.

Sivan is a former executive with over 20 years local and international experience in Human Resources. Currently, Sivan works as a professional coach. The workshop content included topics such as developing a personal brand, how social media is used by potential employers, practice interviews, and how to write resumes and cover letters.
