Mentoring​

The Forum EPFL and EPFL Alumni are joining forces to propose a dedicated mentoring program to graduating Masters and PhD students registered to the Forum EPFL 2020. To benefit from this pro bono program, you must fill in this registration form and provide as much information as possible on you and your preferences so that we can find the best match.

Here are the slides of the Kick-Off Plenary: https://www.forum-epfl.ch/app/uploads/2020/05/Mentorat-Kick-Off-200428-Final1.pdf

Learn and Network events

This year, in collaboration with EPFL Alumni, we will organize different evenings, called the Learn and Network events, as part of the mentoring program. These evenings are divided in two periods: the first is made of testimonies from different alumnis. Then, small groups of students and alumnis are formed for a session of discussion and exchange. These events are opened to all, and not reserved only to the participants of the Mentoring Program.

Our first event was held on May 4th and was about “How to choose your career path”. You can find the slides of the plenary session by clicking here.

This program offers a unique opportunity to future graduates to benefit from the support of experienced EPFL alumni and maximize their chances of success when starting their career.
Mentors can help future Master graduates to:

  • choose a career path (industries, business, functions) and/or a formation (PhD, MBA..);
  • conduct job hunting (market overview, CV, application, interview…);
  • develop network, first contacts;
  • move abroad, found a start-up…<l/i>

Depending on offer and demand, we may not be able to satisfy all participants. We will select mentees based first on the quality of the application and then on a first come first serve basis.
The program will start in May during the kick-off meeting and officially end in October just after the Forum EPFL. The identity of your assigned mentor will be disclosed at the kick-off meeting on April 28th. If you cannot attend, you will be introduced by email. You can also be mentored remotely.

We look forward to you being part of this unique program and benefiting from the immense value of the EPFL Alumni community.
Hurry though: the deadline to register is the 20rd March.
