Music Estonia mentorlussessioonidel osalemiseks tuleb registreerida end TMW delegaadiks.
Mentorlusessioonid on suurepärane viis, kuidas õppida ja samal ajal laiendada oma kontaktivõrgustikku.
Kui tahaksid kellegagi oma valdkonnast ideid põrgatada või küsimustele vastuseid leida, siis vali sobiv mentor ja registreeri end. Kuni viie osalejaga gruppides aset leidvatel sessioonidel saad nõu sind huvitavatel teemadel ja ühtlasi õpid kolleegide kogemustest.
Kuidas see käib?
Vali huvipakkuvad sessioonid.
Täida ankeet, milles küsitakse sinu nime, e-postiaadressi, elukäigu ja motivatsiooni kohta ning, mis kõige tähtsam, 1-3 küsimust, millele sooviksid mentori abiga vastust leida. Ära jäta neid välju tühjaks, sest need on sessiooni tähtsaimaks osaks ja saadetakse mentorile enne kohtumist.
Jõua kohale 5 minutit enne sessiooni algust. Kõik sessioonid toimuvad Nordic Hotel Forumi toas nimega MIITSAR.
Esita oma küsimused sessiooni jooksul. Diskussioon on vaba ja kujuneb osalejate huvi ja aktiivsuse põhjal.
Sessioon on 45 minutit pikk ja viie osavõtjaga.
