Mentorship program

Do you want to have the opportunity to have a female mentor with work experience who can support you in your future career choices? Or do you, who are active in business, want to be inspired by a student and influence future employees in the IT industry?

We at DataTjej believe that networking and sharing experiences between each other is a magical recipe for personal development. That's why together with #addher we created Match and Go and through this new concept we will do our utmost to find a match for you. We match you through our fantastic matching algorithm, but then it is up to you to meet for the next six months and build a relationship. A mentor can do everything from sharing their experiences in the IT industry, be a bulletin board for difficult career choices or why not just discuss exciting IT stuff? An adept (the person who wants to get a mentor) can be inspired, ask lots of questions and give new perspectives on interesting topics to his mentor!

Match & Go has now been completed for the third time and for the first time we got more mentees than mentors! In order to meet a greater number of mentees, this time we have investigated the possibility of digital meetings for those who are in places with fewer mentors per person. The matched couples will now meet continuously between September 2019-January 2020. Together with #addher we continue the initiative and are preparing for a fourth round!

It does not matter how long you have been studying, working or been interested in data / IT to join. This mentorship program is based on mutual desire to get to know a new person in your city who can help and support you on issues you didn't even know you had! You only need to be curious, ambitious and motivated, because once we have found a partner, we pass the responsibility on to you!

The mentoring program is possible at 17 locations around the country; Borlänge, Gävle, Gothenburg, Helsingborg, Jönköping, Karlstad, Linköping, Luleå, Malmö, Skövde, Stockholm, Sundsvall, Umeå, Uppsala, Västerås, Örebro and Örnsköldsvik.

Registration for the Match and Go period September-January is now closed. The registration period closed on 18 August. Matching is ongoing until v. 35 and then e-mail is sent out whether or not you have received a match.
