Get some help from the industry experts and senior students who have volunteered their time to discuss your project with you!
Mentors come in many forms: from both industry, recent alumni, as well as even current students (many who took Orbital in the past years). See which matches your temperament and your idea. Do note that as in past years, some mentors are more popular than others, so be open-minded about whom you might want to work with if you are interested in getting a mentor.
Again, if you do want to try for mentorship, you need to let us know via a Slack DM or email telling us the names of the mentors you don’t mind having.
Do note that as in past years, some mentors are more popular than others, so be open-minded about whom you might want to work with if you are interested in getting a mentor. We will acknowledge all requests so you know that your preferences are noted and currently in the processing pipeline.
We need this as soon as possible, as we wish to finalize mentorship links this week (by 13 May, Friday). Mentorship is a two way street, and details on the program are on the website.
