Get a student as your mentor
Many employers are experiencing a major challenge in attracting and retaining the right employees in the future. You can create good opportunities to succeed in recruiting the competence you want as well as making your employees feel proud, by considering and continuously building your employer brand. In order to succeed it is important to be up to date on what different generations value in their working life.
Campus Vänner offers this possibility to every member through the concept “reverse mentorship”. This mentor program differs from others by the fact that students are the mentors and members in Campus Vänner are the adept.
Campus Vänner will match you against a student and to make the best matchwe need to know your expectations of the mentorship. It can be a request for a specific education, an interest or something else you are curious about.
We think it’s important that you, as mentee, set the agenda for your meetings together with your mentor to suit your expectations.. Below you will find some basic guidelines to frame the layout and makes it easy for you to get started.
- Have a first unconditionally meeting and evaluate if you think that the matching is god.
- Togheter with your mentee you decide the time and frequency of the layout
- To have continuity in your meetings 4-6 times is a good aim.
- The mentorship program is underway for 12 months after you have been matched
- The mentor shall not be charged with any costs. If you choose to have lunch or coffee the adept will pay.
- Be clear with your expectations at the first meeting and determine an individual plan.
Take the chance and be a mentee.

Past mentees and mentors share there experience
During the year we've had about 15 pairs that have met through the reversed mentorship program. By having a student as a mentor the companies can gain knowledge of the younger generation's view on everything from employment to how to be visibel in digital media. Anna Snellman, master student in Strategic Communication, is a mentor for Jannik Hansen, the director of the newspaper Hallå in Skåne.
"The external image and what one's friends and family think about an organisation is more important when choosing a future employer than what ads that are posted on LinkedIn. I quickly realized that a few "common truths" wasn't the actual truth."These are the words of Kristina Jarring Lilja, chairman of Campus Vänner. She's been the mentee of Sofie Bergdahl who's a former Service Management student and currently the CEO of Lunicore Student Consulting.
