Goal of the program: Mentors will provide general support when it comes to questions regarding post-graduation life, career choices, etc. More specific goals can be set individually.
Start: Winter Semester 2021/22 (25 Oct. 2021 through 11 Feb. 2022)
Duration: One semester
Meeting frequency: At least once a month (November through February). The mentor-mentee-pair can decide for themselves if they want to meet more often.
Mentors – Experienced AGBC Munich members and alumni of the Amerika-Institut Alumni Association who are interested in supporting students about to finish their BA or MA studies with job/career- and business-related questions. They should have time to meet with the mentees at least once a month and potentially be available every now and then for e-mails.
Mentees – Students of the LMU Amerika-Institut in their 5th or 6th BA semester/3rd or 4th MA semester who are looking for inputs and support with regards to life after graduation, choosing a career path, etc. They should have time to meet their mentors at least once a month.
Mentors and mentees will be able to meet each other in a “Speed Dating”-format before they are paired. This means: every mentee gets to speak with every mentor for 5 to 10 minutes. After that, they can each make a list of their top-three mentors/mentees. Everyone will be paired with one of their top-three-choices. This initial event takes place online on 25 October 2021. Mentors and mentees will then schedule meetings on their own.
Certificate: At the end of the program, participants will receive a certificate.
