What our mentees say

 
 

Tanya was totally awesome! She prepared a plan for our meetings, she taught me a lot of new ways of thinking, she supported me and encouraged me to take new and frightening actions. I had homework every meeting which worked very well. She was very clear with her feedback on what I've done and wasn't afraid to be honest with me when it wasn't right. She was always available when I needed her. I couldn't imagine a better mentor for me, the match was just splendid and I feel like she helped to put me on a totally new way in my career.

- Eilat Ben-Eliyahu, Freelance Filmmaker

I am glad being 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. I was my pleasure to meet her. Many thanks for all your hard work.

- Markéta Svobodová, TA Operations Specialist at Red Hat

Are you interested in becoming a mentor?

Have you ever had the feeling you wouldn’t be where you are today without that person who supported you or gave you valuable advice? If you feel comfortable in your career, now it’s the right time to give back. As a mentor you offers your knowledge, expertise and advice to those with less experience. By leveraging your experience and skills, you can guide your mentee in the right direction.
