The mentor-mentee matching takes place in the winter. We strive to find a good mentor for all applicants.
After you get your mentor allocated, it is your responsibility as the mentee to contact your mentor and organize the first meeting. Typically you will meet on the terms of the mentor which is usually his/her workplace. Due to limited funds, we are unfortunately unable to cover travel expenses.
A mentor program typically consists of three meetings. To get the optimal benefit from these meetings the mentor and the mentee must consider their expectations to the cooperation and what the aim of the meetings should be. As a mentee, you must remember that it is your responsibility that you profit from the meetings with your mentor and your preparation is therefore of great importance.
Below you will find important considerations and inspiration to prepare for your mentor meetings. Additional tools can be found in the booklet ‘The mentoring journey’ available as an e-book. A hardcopy can also be acquired by contacting us (email@example.com).
