Vill du redan under studietiden få en inblick i hur ditt framtida arbetsliv kommer att se ut? Skaffa dig en mentor.
A mentor gives you an insight into your future working life
Would you like to get an insight, while you’re still studying, into what your future working life will look like? Get yourself a mentor!
- The uncertainty around COVID-19 has had a negative effect on the planning for the academic year 20/21. Due to this the mentor programme this academic year is cancelled.
At MDH there’s something called the Mentor Programme. As a mentee – as you are called in a mentor programme – you will get access to a person from working life who can give you concrete tips and advice on how to think and act before taking the step out into the labour market.
Examples of what you can get access to as a member of the mentor programme:
- Good advice when it’s time to apply for jobs
- The opportunity to get to know your strengths and weaknesses better
- Knowledge and insight into how things work in working life
- An increased network of contacts
Structure of the mentor programme
The programme goes on during the period from October to May. After this the student meets their mentor regularly at times convenient to them both. Apart from this, joint meetings will be arranged in which the participants get the opportunity to exchange experiences.
Who can apply and how do I do it?
The mentor programme is available for all programme students at MDH in both Eskilstuna and Västerås. For the programme to be able to start at both campuses, there has to be a sufficient number of mentors and students at each city. The number of places is limited. Which applicants will be offered a place will depend on what mentors we have; there must always be some connection between the mentor’s profession and your study programme.
The joint meetings of the mentor programme are held in Swedish, but English-speaking students are of course welcome to apply and get a place if there are English-speaking mentors available.
Students reading in the penultimate year of their programme have priority to the mentor programme.
