Mentorship programme


NB: The MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME IS NOT RUNNING IN 2018-2019. 

 

ARE YOU CONSIDERING A FUTURE CAREER OUTSIDE ACADEMIA?  

AAU Alumni offers a mentorship programme that matches current PhD students, recent PhD graduates (until one year after obtaining the PhD degree) with mentors who have experience in the labour market.

Through the AAU Alumni network we have access to a diverse network of qualified mentors with professional experience in both the public and private sector.

 

AS A Mentee you can gain the following:

  • Clarification of your career goals and a chance for you to kick-start your ensuing development process.
  • Feedback on your personal, academic and professional skills and a chance to receive feedback on or develop business ideas.
  • An employer’s view on your application and CV.
  • An opportunity to expand your network.

 

THE PROGRAMME

The mentoring programme runs over a period of 9 months and involves 5-6 meetings between the mentor and mentee.

Every year in October we match mentees with AAU alumni mentors on the basis of a correlation in competence, expertise, experience, field, and geographical placement. We ensure that the mentors are equipped with the requisite qualifications for providing guidance to the mentees.

The participants will receive material on e-mail about being a mentor/mentee and with tools to use in the process. The material is available in both Danish and English.

 
APPLYING

We aim to provide as many applicants as possible with a mentor. However, we cannot guarantee a mentor for everyone.

Deadline for submission in October every year.
