We want to help our graduates in the transition from student life to work life. To shorten the distance between the two we have established a mentor programme. You can apply to become a part of it if you have graduated within the past year.
As a mentee you will be matched with a mentor with experience in the field, you wish to get a deeper insights into. You will meet 4-6 times to discuss choices and goals and you get the chance to expand your network.
The mentor programme runs from September until February. The participants will receive material about being a mentee and will be invited to workshops, providing tools and ideas for how to make the most of the mentor programme.
Apply for a mentor
You apply for a mentor by filling out the application form below. We encourage you to elaborate your answers, so we can make the best match possible. The applications should not be about why you should be given a mentor, but rather what you hope to gain from a mentor.
Note that participation in the start-up seminar (May 3, 2017) is mandatory for getting a mentor. If you are not able to attend the seminar, please contact alumni coordinator, Trine Møller (firstname.lastname@example.org), for more information about the programme prior to your application.
The deadline for applying is June 12, 2017. In the beginning of August we will let you know, if we were able to find a match for you.
Become a mentor
As a mentor you have the chance to help an ITU talent kickstart his or her career while adding to your own resumé. The mentor role entails meeting with your mentee 4-6 times over a six months period and provide sparring, give feedback, and generally let your mentee benefit from your experience. In this process it is not you but the mentee who is responsible for keeping the process going.
The benefits of being a mentor includes personal development, expanding your professional and personal network, get connected to new talents and research at ITU, and the chance to follow your mentee's development over time.
If you think that being a mentor sounds interesting - and you have a couple of years experience or more - then sign up to become a mentor, when signing up for the ITU Alumni Network or contact alumni coordinator, Trine Møller, email@example.com.
