When I first heard of INDIVIDUALS and the mentorship program, I found it highly interesting however I was not fully aware what exactly it was about or what I wanted to gain from the program. Nonetheless, I had a strong feeling that a form of career guidance from an impartial partner could have a beneficial effect on my own career. Therefore, I decided to sign up for the mentorship program in Shanghai.
The first meeting with INDIVIDUALS was truly inspiring and in some ways a release. We came across things I did not even knew were an issue until I had said it out loud. It started a long process of reflections upon myself and my career. It was crucial that I had INDIVIDUALS, my mentor and the other mentees to talk to in order to have a second opinion from an impartial partner
My experience with INDIVIDUALS in the 8 months the mentor program lasted have had a sincerely beneficial effect both from a personal and professional point of view. The reflection process, the sessions with INDIVIDUALS, my mentor Mark and the other mentees in the program has been a truly eye-opener.
I have only the warmest recommendations to the concept and I will recommend everyone to sign up no matter age, education or job situation. My appearance in INDIVIDUALS’ mentorship program has been a lifechanging experience which can be shown by the fact that I have decided to move back to Denmark after 6 years in China. A decision that still feels right but only because it has been tested to the maximum throughout the mentorship program.
