IT student - do you want a mentor?

Being a student, midway or towards the end of your studies and getting the opportunity to get support from a person with longer experience in the chosen profession is invaluable! We are currently looking for you who are studying any of our IT-related education programs (year 2 or further into your education) and want a mentor.

What are the benefits of having a mentor?

  • You get new perspectives on yourself and your upcoming work life and can discuss thoughts and ideas with someone who has experience working in IT-related professions.
  • It is rewarding to reflect on your knowledge, skills and personal qualities in relation to your future working life.
  • You get new perspectives on what it's like working within your chosen focus.
  • You expand your network of contacts and exchange experiences with mentors and other students within the IT area. 

How does the set-up look like for the mentorship program?

The mentor program begins with a joint start-up meeting for all students and mentors. Here you are also given the opportunity to put together your planning with your mentor. There will be a total of six meetings with your mentor. The start up meetings will take place on the following dates:

Växjö October 4 at 17-19
Kalmar October 11 at 17-19

In January, the participants in the mentoring program will meet on a follow-up meeting to reflect on the time spent and exchange experiences. The final meeting will take place in April, where the program will be summed up, evaluated and provided for follow-up.

How do I register?

Click here to report your interest in having a mentor.

There are a limited number of mentors in the IT field (but there are other opportunities for mentoring), so we can't guarantee that everyone can get a mentor this year. We are doing our best to match as many as possible. After the initial registration below, you will receive an increased number of questions so that we can match you with a mentor. 

Do you need more information?

On this page you can read more about the mentorship program. You can also contact Diana Unander to get more information.

We are looking forward to an exciting time together!

The initiative is supported with funding from Linnaeus University, Region Kronoberg and the Regional Association of Kalmar County and is in managed in cooperation with Kodkollektivet.
