GRADUATES from the Air Energi’s Langely Programme recently provided mentoring sessions as part of their training to more than 300 students from Port Moresby National High School.

Air Energi, in partnership with the PNG Human Resource Institute, selected 20 human resource graduates who were equipped with training mentoring and secondments.

About 10 got job placements with companies. 

The mentoring was only a requirement for those who had not been hired for a job placement.

They interacted with students from the personal development class in small groups and presented their personal success stories, the challenges they faced and how they overcame them. 

They encouraged the students to set career goals, discussed tips for balancing study and personal life. 

School principal Geneva Gwaibo said it was a success as many students were able to interact and engaged with them. 

One of the graduates, Myrah Yacop shared her motivation and encouraged students to take up challenges.

“One thing I have learnt is to have perseverance and to accept and overcome obstacles in life,” Yacop said.

“Whatever lies ahead, never give up.”
