With the tinsel down, the tree put away for another year, and hot cross buns already on the shelves, it’s time to double down and take real action on that ‘new year, new career’ resolution with TIME.

2018 was one of TIME’s biggest ever years with 36 travel and tourism industry professionals graduating from its renowned mentoring program, and 2019 promises to be another landmark year.

But with the application deadline looming, you need to act now!

“We were delighted with the way TIME evolved last year. In particular, the increase in participation from beyond the traditional Sydney and Melbourne catchments was significant. TIME has a truly national presence now,” said the mentorship’s Founder, Penny Spencer.

“To see TIME mentees grow and develop so much professionally and personally through the six-month program is unbelievably satisfying. The bonds they forge with their mentors are deep, and every graduation event is incredibly moving as each mentee describe his or her TIME journey.

“Then, as TIME Graduates, they join an enviable network of remarkable, supportive people—some of the finest in the industry.”

Long after graduating, the program keeps on giving. Graduates enjoy exclusive access to events, workshops and lively networking sessions right around the country.

Since its foundation in 2009, the mentorship has accelerated the leadership and career paths of some 200 graduates from more than 100 travel, tourism and hospitality businesses.  

And right now, TIME is calling for expressions of interest from ambitious travel-tourism-hospitality industry professionals wishing to take action and develop their skills, networks and advance their careers in 2019.

The program is seeking applicants for its 33rd program intake commencing 13 February 2019.

Expressions of interest are due by Monday 21 January 2019.
