Abstract

Although career mentoring is well established across many professional areas, its application in the field of property and construction is at an emergent stage. As part of ongoing quality review aimed at enhancing student engagement with their educational program, a survey was undertaken among first and second year students enrolled in the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning’s Bachelor of Planning and Design (Property and Construction). The study investigated student preferences regarding involvement in a career mentoring program including mentoring program options and mentoring style preferences. Several differences emerged between property and construction student cohorts and in particular between male and female students. The findings demonstrate the importance of examining mentoring preferences from the perspective of the mentee.
