Mentorship South- Call for mentees

Are you passionate about project management and interested in gaining more knowledge and learning from experienced professionals?

Imagine earning PDUs while gaining new knowledge and skills!

Mentoring is a two way learning process for both, mentors and mentees.

As a mentee you will be able to learn about project management tools and processes used in different industries through your mentors´ expertise. You will have the opportunity to keep up with changing trends in the profession and also to develop your own leadership and communication skills.

The program is open to all PMI Swedish Chapter members.

After the successful mentorship program pilot in Stockholm region, the mentorship program is going to take place in Skåne. (If you would like to read more about the first pilot, please visit the website https://www.pmi-se.org/Kompetens-Projektledning/Mentorskap

What is the mentorship program?

The mentorship program provides opportunity to mentors and mentees to meet regularly to discuss professional development during six months. During this period, mentors and mentees decide when and where to meet and what should be the meeting agenda. To guarantee success, it is important to set goals and expectations from both sides at the first meeting. 

Time requirements:

●A commitment of 12 hours for mentors and 6 hours for mentees in total is required. 

●At least 4 meetings with the mentee (one hour each).

●3 group meetings with PMI Sweden (one for preparation before the program starts, a half-time meeting to follow up the progress of the program and a last meeting once the program is completed to summarize the learning outcomes).

●For the mentor, six hours of additional work are requested to prepare before the meeting with the mentee and to complete the follow-up tasks. (This work can be formulated based on the initial discussion between the mentor and the mentee. Example: research done by the mentor based on the mentees´ needs).

What is expected from mentees? 

As a mentee you can expect guidance in your personal and professional development. Mentees should be motivated and positively engaged in the program. Mentees should have good social skills and be good listeners, open and sincere. 

The program requires commitment and willingness to actively participate and interact with the mentor.From the mentee´s side, the program comprises a total of 6 hours (1h=1 PDU) divided into individual meetings and group activities. To claim PDUs it is important that you record the key information about the sessions.

Furthermore, the mentee should openly communicate with the mentor or the mentoring committee if at any time he/she feels that the relationship is running into trouble or it is not working properly.

The matching process and important dates

The mentorship committee will get back to you before week 36 with the outcome of the selection process. 

The matching process is done by the mentorship committee once the call is closed. The matching between mentor and mentee is based on a first screening of the motivation letters of both mentors and mentees. As a second step, the mentees are given the possibility to watch the mentor´s video and to give a preference. 

The mentorship program is divided in several phases, from application to end of the program. 

●16th of July - Call for mentors is officially open
