Motivation

Søren wants to give back, since he has been using mentors throughout his own career and still is. He wants to help a student by sharing his story and experiences and help in the decision-making processes the student will be going through. Personally, Søren is hoping participation will contribute to personal goals to expand his personal leadership and motivational skills, and so he would prefer a mentee with leadership ambitions, someone moving from being a specialist to a generalist, or someone looking to make a bigger change. In addition, he is also hoping his participation will expand his network among young, talented engineers.
