'In my final year of university I joined PIA and the Young Planner Mentor Program with the goal of expanding my professional network. I was paired with a senior member of the Department of Planning, which was an incredibly valu able experience that opened up a wide range of opportunities. Through my mentor, the events I attended, and the networks I was introduced to, I was able to gain valuable work experience in the private sector, attend various professional development events and gain the contacts and skills I would later use to secure full time employment in the planning sector.'
