What will your mentor help you with?

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.

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.

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.

Your mentor can offer an opportunity to expand your existing network of professional contacts by introducing you to relevant connections. On average, our mentees receive 3.5 connections from their mentors.

Monika Visnova
UX/UI Designer at Slevomat
I applied for mentoring program and was almost immediately connected with my mentor Petr. My goal was to switch career from architecture to UX design and get a full-time job within six months. Petr was a great guide while I was working on my own project and helped me navigate in the UX world while I was applying for jobs and going to interviews. I’m happy to say I managed to reach this goal and now I enjoy my new role in Slevomat.
Tatiana Rybachuk
Web-Developer
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.
Michelle Robins
Web Developer, Creative Storyteller, UX + UI + Content
Evin is has been such a valuable and lovely mentor, guide, and friend. She's such a ball of sunshine, always giving pieces of wisdom casually as if it doesn't cost anything! She's so self aware and genuinely kind. I wish we'd met sooner! Together, we've worked through internal struggles and limiting beliefs, and I've built up enough information to realize that the original goal I set for myself isn't truly what I wanted. So we pivoted around the small disappointments and she helped me regather myself so that now I'm stronger and facing new challenges with more confidence than I had before. :)
Mako Ueda
UX Researcher at Avast
I signed up for the mentorship program when I was at a crossroad in my career. I knew I wanted to change my career path, but I didn’t know what or how. From the get-go my mentor, Michaela, worked with me to discover my vision and find the clarity that I needed. We started off by taking time to reflect on my past experiences, my strengths and weaknesses, and what I wanted my life to look like in the next year. This helped me narrow down the list of different careers I was taking into consideration and hone in on my focus. Michaela asked the hard questions that pushed me to think about what it is I truly wanted out of my professional career, and most importantly, why.
