You can also read more about what other mentees have learned during our mentor programme:
“I have learned to believe more in myself and my abilities, and generally be less skeptical. In addition, I have learned to have a more structured approach to things, for example. job search, networking and general operations”.
“Strong positive attitude toward future: for instance, I will always set ambitious goals for myself, reach them, and set others (…)”
“The key benefit for me has been to have someone objective to speak to. I have learned to take a step back and re-assess my situation with objective eyes. I have also learned to look at all options before making a decision which means that I feel much more comfortable about the choices I make”.
“It was good to get some specific tools for the different processes I went through, and it was nice to get a different angle on things”.
