What if my student mentee asks me to be a referee?

As with any request of this sort, you should feel comfortable agreeing to it. Consider whether you know enough about the student mentee to speak positively and knowledgeably about their professional behaviour and employability skills. It may be premature to act as a referee too early in the Program before you have got to know your mentee. However, note that student mentees should not view the Career Mentor Program merely as an expedient way of getting a referee, so if you have any concerns, please email the Coordinator at career.mentorprogram@utas.edu.au.
