Mentoring is a process whereby experienced professionals share their knowledge and skills with aspiring talents at the beginning of their careers.

International Talents Mentoring Programme - One on one meetings with mentee and mentor

The International Talents’ Mentoring Programme is intended for international degree students and other international talents who are based in the Tampere region and are at an early stage of their career. The programme will begin in the fall and end before the summer break.

Mentoring is a two-way relationship that benefits both mentor and mentee. It offers mentors the opportunity to build contacts with talented young professionals and share experiences and network with their fellow mentors. 

In addition to individual mentor sessions, the mentors and mentees will attend group meetings that bring together all the participants. During the group meetings the focus is on networking, learning about Finnish working life and sharing experiences.

For mentees, the programme serves as a confidence boost and gives them a broader perspective on their career options.  The programme provides international mentees with first-hand experience of Finland’s typically straightforward business culture with a low level of hierarchy and a chance to grow their regional network.
