With their mentors, mentees usually discuss future career possibilities, transition from student to work life, career beginnings and further developments (CVs and job interviews included), what work life feels like in general (for example what diverse job positions or company culture look like). They go also deeper into the topics of self-development (work-life balance, own motivation, self-confidence, strengths and weaknesses) and academic life and share effective ways how to combine that all with private life.
“My mentor and I have been on the same wavelength since we met for the first time. I really appreciate it that I can ask Martin every time and always get an honest and enriching answer. Martin’s experience is immensely precious for me and I have admiration for his varied career. Alumni mentoring is a brilliant program which I would recommend to everyone,” says Jindrich, a mentee and an International Trade student.
