JungeFeste Mentoring - Shaping the future together

Information for mentors

Looking back, many of us can say that there was one or another decision-making process in our careers that was instrumental in our current position. This is particularly linked to people who advised us, evaluated and reflected on options with us and thus had a significant influence on our decisions. Conversely, however, if we think about it more carefully, we will also think of one or two people to whom we have already advised, be it (former) colleagues or friends.

Being a mentor in the JungeFeste mentoring program is intended to promote precisely this exchange, to pass on our knowledge and experiences to young members and to share them with them. The aim is to encourage dialogue, which is precisely the case when opinions on a topic do not coincide. The mentor sees himself or herself as an interested companion with a wealth of experience from which the mentee can learn.

The JungeFeste mentoring is divided into two main areas:


  1. JungeFeste Mentoring Start – for the level Master’s thesis and doctorate
    Mentors are people at the career level of habilitation or professorship and accompany their mentee in questions during the master's thesis or doctorate as well as in career decision-making.
  2. JungeFeste Mentoring Pro – for the postdoc, habilitation and junior professorship levels
    Mentors are established professors and accompany their mentees on questions relating to establishing themselves in the academic world.

Benefits for mentors
In the JungeFeste mentoring program, you get to know young academics and make a significant contribution to their advancement. You reflect on your own career path and can pass on your experiences and this knowledge and enter into dialogue with your mentee. In addition, your own consulting skills are trained and expanded through the discourse with the mentee. This particularly applies to confronting current challenges in the academic and scientific field, which can also expand your own experiences. You also benefit from regular exchanges with other mentors and thus expand your existing network.
