The Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Young Professionals Mentorship Program is a 6-month program consisting of 4 mandatory Seminars and workshops, including a final evaluating and closing meeting. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Young Professionals Mentorship Program was launched in October 2012. It strives to provide participants with the opportunity to grow in their careers and to enrich their personal developments by exchanging experiences, views, and knowledge. By utilizing the Chamber’s extensive network of international business leaders, the program offers Young Professionals a unique Mentor experience.
The highly successful program includes one-to-one sessions, seminars, and workshops. It is designed for Young Professionals between 25 and 36 years old with high ambitions to develop and grow. The ideal Mentee has a few years of work experience and knowledge of managing and executing projects.
One-on-one meetings are encouraged to take place once every six weeks, offering opportunities for in-depth discussions while creating strong personal bonds. There will also be a possibility for personal meetings one-on-one at the seminars and workshops.
Seminars and Workshops
4 mandatory seminars and workshops are scheduled throughout the year to guide you through the Mentorship Program, and to help you reach your goal for personal growth and development, as well as to share experiences and insights with others and building on your business network.
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Young Professionals Mentorship Program is open to all members and encourages both mentors and mentees to register.
With this program, MercuriUrval and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, in co-operation, is supporting the next generation’s leaders by connecting Mentees from the Young Professionals with mentors from the Chamber’s extensive network of international leaders.
What makes the difference between a career that thrives and one that stalls? For many in the business world, it’s a mentor. In addition to helping you define your professional development path, a mentor an help you deal with the everyday concerns in the daily job life. While one should never blindly follow in the footsteps of others, the lessons learned from others’ experiences and missteps, can prove invaluable.
The Mentor/Mentee couples will be selected carefully according to the application forms by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in close co-operation with the Program Leader. After mentors are paired up with mentees both Mentors and Mentees are participating at the four scheduled Workshops and Seminars throughout the year both as individuals and as a couple. At these Seminars and Workshops, time has also been included for one-to-one meetings between the Mentor and the Mentee.
