Mentoring provides an opportunity for an exchange of ideas between professionals at different stages of their careers and a possibility for mentors to get acquainted with the world of today’s students in the field. Mentoring is a learning process that benefits both mentors and students.
Mentoring means guidance and support that a competent and experienced professional provides for a young person willing to develop at the end of their studies or at the beginning of their career. At the Association, we see mentoring as a good way to promote young engineers’ commitment to the field and networking with more experienced colleagues.
Every young person receives an experienced, personal mentor. A key part of the project is the open and confidential relationship between the mentor and the mentee. The mentoring project lasts from September to April.
The next project begins in the fall of 2018, application period will be open during the spring time!
Experiences from the previous mentoring project:
“It was great to talk with the mentor and hear their opinions on the field, the career, and work.”
“The mentoring project developed my confidence and I believe that it helped me to get a job that really suits me at the moment.”
“Having interesting conversations and thinking about different issues also helped me to realize new aspects of my own career.”
