Become a mentor

In the mentoring role, you will act as sparring partner for a mentee, guiding them in their educational and career choices. As a mentor, you can:

  • Create greater visibility for your company
  • Develop your personal competencies
  • Exercise responsibility and provide guidance
  • Join a strong professional network with other mentors and mentees

make the transition from studies to career a positive experience for a student. Esbjerg and the surrounding area needs a dynamic group of people in the business community, who can help to retain coming graduates in the area. The mentoring role can also provide you with enhancement of your personal skills that you can apply in your own future career.

The SIBU Mentoring Programme has a duration of 8 months and kicks off each year in November. At the kick- off meeting, both the mentee and the mentor will be provided with guidance on their roles.
A total of 6 meetings are held during the process, with the agendas set by the mentee. Halfway through the process, there will be a midway-meeting at which an exciting workshop on coaching will take place. The event will also have great opportunities for networking with other mentors and mentees. The mentoring programme concludes in May with a joint event for all mentors and mentees, focusing on professionalism and networking.

When we know the profiles of the mentors, a post will be made targeted towards possible mentees. The post will include the logo of the company that the mentor represents. 
Based on the applications we receive, we match you as a mentor with a mentee, who is soon to have the same or a similar educational background as you. 
We also match mentor and mentee based upon what you both have wished to get out of the Student in Business Mentoring Programme. 

In case of doubt regarding the match between a mentor and a mentee the mentor will be contacted before the match will be finalized.

All mentors who have signed up for the mentoring programme will know their mentees by October.
The mentor and mentee will gain information about each other at the kick-off event in November.

”Jeg har arbejdet meget med elever og trainess, og synes at Co-Bu er en relevant og spændende forlængelse til dette. Jeg ser, at vi som virksomhed kan få gode og nødvendige input fra dimittender, der har en solid teoretisk baggrund, til vores fortsatte udvikling. Vi er som virksomhed åbne og parate til ny viden, og vi vil på den anden side sætte en stor ære i at give dimittender den relevante faglige sparring og indsigt.”

”Forløbet er sammensat, så der både er fokus på en faglig og personlig udvikling. Vi klæder de kommende Co-Bu Graduates på med givende og lærerige kurser inden for deres interesse- og kompetencefelt. De vil gennem hele perioden have en mentor tilknyttet, så man som ny på arbejdsmarkedet har en tæt sparringspartner. Herudover så er netværk et helt centralt punkt i programmet. De kommende Co-Bu Graduates kommer til at inspirere hinanden og arbejde som et hold, blandt andet med et tværfagligt innovationsprojekt”

"My mentor has helped me with the application process for student work. As a result, I now have a student job."
Chen Jingchang, BA in International Sales & Marketing - Erhvervsakademi SydVest
“My mentor has given me an insight into what it’s like to work as a chemical engineer – such as how much time she spends in the lab, and the other things she does during her working day.”
Ditte Foged Jensen, Kemiingeniør studerende på Aalborg Universitet
“Personally, I think everyone has something that they can teach you and that you can teach them, and it’s always good to have new perspectives and inputs. Being a mentor gives me new tools that I can use both in my interviews with my mentee and in my daily work.”
Palle Lau Nordtorp, Project Engineer – Mechanical - Qubiqa
“My mentor has given me suggestions on how to use my experience, build on it, stand out from the crowd and make a good impression in the job application process.”
Freja Flodgaard Madsen, Kandidat i Cultural Sociology, SDU Esbjerg
“My interviews with Ditte have helped me to develop and improve my mentoring skills. If, for example, I need to help my colleagues with something, the mentoring experience just makes it that bit more natural for me to know how to help, or what to ask.”
