Mentee

Who are our Mentees and how do they get selected?

Mentors4u guides students from the second year of the Bachelor up to one year after the achievement of their latest Degree.

Mentees will become Alumni. This means that, while continuing to have access to the Mentors4u platform and all the available content, they will no longer be formally assigned to a Mentors4u Community professional.

Italian students interested in career opportunities in the economic and financial fields , from all Italian or foreign universities or foreign students studying in Italy, can apply.

Evidences from our Alumni

Mentor

Anna Silvestri

Sr. Associate @ McKinsey & Company

During the first years of university I realized that having role models to inspire your is important, but not enough. In fact, the dialogue and personal relationship that are established with a Mentor are priceless.

Over the years, I have been both a Mentor and a Mentee; from these experiences I have learned three important lessons: Always ask why, Never give up, Make your voice heard.

Mentee

Ilaria Uras

Student @ EMIT (Economics and Management of Innovation and Technology)

Mentors4u is the occation to come across new people, ideas, and opportunities which will broaden your horizons and widen your dreams.

Mentors4u is a family where you can always find someone ready to help and believe in you, providing you with the ability to seize an opportunity behind every challenge and helping build the confidence needed to achieve any goal.

Mentor

Valerio Giannunzio

Senior Engagement Manager @ Salesforce

A Mentor is able to guide the Mentee from the moment he/she takes the first steps in the professional world, helping them focus on their aspirations and objectives, evaluate opportunities to make the most of their skills and ambitions, and helping them face the doubts that every student has when approaching the job market for the first time - all with the experience of those who have faced the same situations in the past.

Mentee

Mattia Tino

Structured Finance Analyst @ IMI Corporate & Investment Banking

Today, looking back, I realize that not everyone has had the same opportunities I had, and Mentors4u is the answer to this. The concept of "leverage", very dear to us students of economics, does not only bear a financial connotation: Mentors4u is the greatest leverage of all, for those students who wants to get better - always.
