Today is day #19 and one of the last challenges was to discover the benefits of mentorship. They had to choose a mentor within the company and have a mentee-mentor conversation.
Day #19 was a great step forward! We found our mentor. Having someone to refer to is very important and I am glad that Benjamin Degand is my mentor. He has some soft skills that are very interesting and he's a good advisor!
The day #19 was a really great day for us. I found my mentor within the company: Emilie Deom. She is an amazing speaker and a really interesting person. I felt like her personality was pretty much like mine, that’s why I chose Emilie. I think that mentoring is really helpful to improve the way we are working and also our daily life. This first meeting with Emilie was very great, I learned a lot about her career, her opinion about situation that I’ve faced. She also gave me very good tips to be a good speaker. I can’t wait to plan the second meeting!
On day #19, we had to find a mentor in the company to guide us and to help us in our career. Furthermore, we found out what is the role of a mentor and what are the benefits of mentorship. I chose as my mentor Yorick Petey. For me, a mentor will give you more self-confidence and help you to take you better control of your career. As he’s managing a team, I think that he has many tips to provide me. I will take advantage of his knowledge and his strong motivation during the time of my internship.
The end is near and this challenge came at the right time to find my mentor. After 19 days, I had the chance to talk with many people at DD and it has enabled me to create interesting connections. I can see myself through one of them and he represents all the skills that a mentor must have. Thank you again Karctic Sandanakrichenane for being my mentor!
