Earlier this semester, I joined a mentorship program through KTH which is called Pepp. Pepp has created a mentorship program where girls in high school are connected to female engineering students. The engineering student tries to inspire and give insights about how the school is, why you should pursue a technical education and maybe share their own journey to university. The engineering students also have their own mentor which is a young professional that can give insights how career and life has been after graduation and share job experiences.
Last week I went to an event with Pepp where we went to a company called Cygni and had a seminar about mentorship. We had discussions on what mentorship has meant to us but also the differences of being a mentee and a mentor. I would recommend you to find a mentor if you feel that you need guidance in your future career. Since I joined this mentorship program, I have met other female engineering students from KTH that have shared their stories and dreams. Also, I have met a lot of young professionals that have shared their experiences.
I think it is really good to have a mentor because you create a relationship with a person that can guide you. The mentor and mentee relationship is not the same as the relationship you have with a friend, because you can talk about self-developing, career and other things you might not do with your other friends. The mentor also has the ability to give new perspective to things as she probability already been through the same journey. When having a startup, a mentor can be very valuable and give good support when you need to take big decisions.
