Get a mentor

Do you want a unique insight into working life?

SDU Mentor is a special opportunity for graduate students at the University of Southern Denmark. You can also sign up for the programme if the mentoring process is scheduled to begin less than a year after your graduation. 

A mentoring process typically runs from October to June and consists of at least three meetings between you and your mentor, where you can build a good dialogue and unique relationship. 

What you can use a mentor for

The mentors in SDU Mentor are alumni (graduated students) with a minimum of two years of professional experience.

For example, a mentor can help you:

  • Gain insight into a particular industry, business or work function
  • Put your competences and qualifications into words
  • Identify new, more and different opportunities
  • Learn more about your job and career opportunities through coaching and advice
  • Expand your network with relevant professionals in your field

What is expected of you

If you are assigned a mentor, this means you will have the role of the mentee in that relationship. 

As a mentee you are expected to:

  • Be ambitious and committed throughout the process, which typically lasts from October to June
  • Be open to candid coaching and feedback from a mentor
  • Be able to participate in the kick-off meeting on 26 October 2017
  • Be able to meet with your mentor two to three times
