How our Mentoring program works

 

At Femme Palette, we believe that the best way for someone to learn is through exposure to experience and guidance from people who, like your mentors, were once in the same situation.

    You’ll set up the goals you want to achieve within 6 months and our mentors will help you achieve them

 What will you get from your mentor?

 

Career Advice

Your mentor will help you “see around corners” in your career so you know what it takes to progress. Your mentor will be your guide and sounding board for ideas, helping you reflect on your goals and decide on the best course of action.

 
 

 
 

Develop your knowledge and skills

Your mentor will help you identify the expertise you need to succeed, including building confidence, improving your presentation and communication skills. You will also get advice on additional resources you can leverage, including books, articles, and events.

 
 

 
 

Accountability

Working regularly with a mentor ensures that you maintain focus on your career growth and have consistent conversations about how you can improve. Long-term career growth is often about improving a little bit every day, rather than in short bursts.

 
 

 
 

Build your network

Your mentor can offer an opportunity to expand your existing network of professional contacts by introducing you to relevant connections.

What our mentees say

Barbora Spacilova, Country Director at DataPinch

I am very thankful to Femme Palette for organizing the program and matching me with such a great mentor. Although Amanda is still very young, she is exactly the right person, able to provide me with great sales guidance as well as cheer-up whenever needed. And as I live abroad, can say that it works remote as well!

I participated in FP Mentoring program (Design). I really liked the whole organization of the process, starting with the first emails and ending with the selection of mentors. At the beginning of the Program, my mentor and I defined the main goals, and within three months they were achieved. Pavel, my mentor was very competent, attentive and of course an expert in his field. To everyone else who doubts about participation in the Program, I can honestly say, don’t doubt! That is a cool trip, very useful for self and career development.

I am glad to be a part of this initiative. You made a perfect match and even though we both come from different backgrounds, we were able to find common goals and Jana is great leader and mentor as well. I have so much to learn from her and I truly appreciate that she is willing to share her best knowledge and experience with me. It was my pleasure to meet her. Many thanks for all your hard work.

Mentor-Mentee matching process

When we match mentees with mentors, we’re aware of the goals you filled in the application and we’re trying to find mentors who are able to help you achieve the goals. Before matching, we consult with mentors to see if they feel confident about helping you with such goals.

We have a range of mentors from different industry backgrounds, different levels and experiences. Our mentors are trained to help you reach your goals and deliver the value you’re expecting. If you are not happy with the mentor, we have a refund policy in place.

Our mentors work in companies such as
