Support for potential mentees
To support the newcomer professionals become job-ready and fulfill KMP mentee eligibility criteria, Kaleidoscope has organised job-readiness workshops before the KMP 2020 Cycle 2 mentee applications open. For those mentees who were unable to attend the sessions in May, you will be required to attend them in June prior to starting this program.
