The challenge

During your career you may be lucky to run into persons creating a profound impact on your professional life. I know this certainly have been the case for me, but not everybody may have been lucky enough to find the perfect mentor who are willing to share their learnings freely. Fortunately it happens that a lot of experienced people cross various fields are willing to share their knowledge with people they trust and see a potential in. Everybody has something to learn, and everybody have learnings to share. Now the hard part is to facilitate the connection and making sure the right persons cross paths.

The solution

CareerMentor is a Danish platform that seeks to solve just that. It's core value proposition is matching potential mentors and mentees in their professional life. Mentors get to share their knowledge, build network and give back on a platform that prevets potential mentees reducing the risk of misusing their time and trust. Mentees gets valuable sparring and advice from a experienced person that are not their boss or close colleague.

A professional but human website

Visitors first meet a website articulating CareerMentors concept and mission. Here people can get familiar with the idea of mentorship in a career context. They can listen to both a mentor and a mentee telling their stories and benefits of learning and sharing.

It provides a gateway to signing up for the actual platform.
