F A Q s

Does the mentoring program cost anything?


Nope - but you do have to be an active member of the female factor. The membership starts at 1 € a day. For more info visit our membership page.




Can I apply for more than one mentor?


Yes, you can apply for up to three mentors. Please note, every mentor requires a personalized motivation letter.




I'm having trouble deciding who to apply for, how do you pick a good mentor?


That all depends on your career goals for the upcoming months- so ask yourself where do you want to be in half a year or year from now. Do you want to expand your company in a certain field? Start your own company? Or side business? Do you want to gain a particular skill set? Or maybe you want to move up within your corporation? Choosing a good mentor FOR YOU depends on a lot of things. But we’ve seen that a good mentor mentee relationship and successful outcomes mainly depends on good chemistry aka. you two get along and that the person can give you relevant advice and know-how that will help to excel in YOUR personal career. So ask yourself: “Will I vibe well with this person?” “How is their career and experience relevant to mine?” “How will it help me get to where I want to be in a certain period of time?” "How could my mentor actually benefit from my knowhow and skillset?"




How long is the mentoring period running?


The official mentoring period is for half a year. The current one will be kicking off in April until October 2021. However, some of the mentors will still be happy to support you after that period or even become close friends.




Can I apply for a mentor who lives in another city?


Absolutely. We encourage you to apply for mentors in other cities as well, especially if you have a certain goal, eg. expanding or establishing a business there or looking for a job in another country or if you're eager to get to know another culture.




How can I become a mentor myself?
