Education: Master of Science in Business and Economics
University: University of Linköping
Mentor: Sofie Jorheden
I am 24 years old, originally from Stockholm but currently living in Linköping where I study my final year of my Master of Science in Business and Economics. I am a positive and social person who enjoys living an active life and spending time with friends. I work part time as executive assistant at a small family business and during my leisure time I enjoy being in the archipelago.
With graduation getting closer, I felt a wish to have a mentor who could inspire me and someone I could discuss my different thoughts with. I had lots of thoughts about my future career and what I wanted to do, and I wanted the opportunity to discuss this with someone! When I read about the mentoring program, I immediately felt that this was something for me!
Tell us briefly about your experiences of the program
It’s been highly valuable for me to talk with my mentor and discuss all sorts of things. We’ve let the setup develop a lot over time by starting from my specific wishes of discussion topics, but also letting the conversations lead us into interesting new topics as time goes on. My mentor has by listening, questioning, and contributing with her perspectives, helped me gain lots of insights and answers on my thoughts. The program also gave the opportunity to do a personality test in purpose of personal development, which has been very interesting!
I’ve gotten to know myself much better in who I am, what I want, and what’s important to me. By this I’ve developed a lot on a personal level! Many things have become clear to me thanks to my mentor as a sounding board. One of the best things has also been the relationship my mentor and I have developed together. Sofie has both supported and challenged me and I’ve been comfortable with discussing all sorts of things with my mentor.
By discussing different things and earlier experiences of situations, I’ve learned a lot and gained lots of insights and reflections. I will for sure take all of this with me for my future career! I’ve also gained a better knowledge in what I want to do for my future career, what positions that interests me, as well as lots of tips for recruitment processes and my resume.
Absolutely! The quality and value of this mentor program has exceeded my expectations by far and it’s a fantastic initiative of Atlas Copco.
Definitely! It’s a very interesting firm, with lots of opportunities!
I will move back to Stockholm and look forward to starting my career!
