Fill out the survey. Afterwards receive an invitation for an application form or wait till mentoring team gets in touch with you. After submission, wait for a positive response to your application. If so, voila - you’re in.


Mentors interview potential mentees & find the one that suits them the best in terms of industries, goals, characteristics, etc.


Mentors and mentees will be matched in pairs one to one. Pairs will be matched based on your experience or future job preferences, interests and personalities.


Before the program starts, both mentors and mentees will have a 2-3 hour introduction sessions. Afterwards, a meet-up with everyone involved will be held.



Every second month will start with a workshop that covers a topic regarding personal development.


Pairs will meet at least once per month to talk about the workshop or any other topic they will see as valuable for them.


At the end of each quarter mentors and mentees will need to present their progress to the rest of the program’s participants.

My main takeaways from the Mentoring program is the feeling that I can be myself and I don't need to change myself to realize my dreams. I need to follow to my deeper feeling and voice of the heart.

My gained experience is not future, it is present! I am already using my experience for making to grow my fabric store.

During the Mentoring program, I have progressed tremendously both professionally and personally. I have thoroughly enjoyed many hours of meaningful conversations and discussions with my mentor, which have helped to develop a broader understanding of oneself and the world around me. Very honestly, never have I before understood the need for a mentor as much as I do now and can only strongly urge everyone to grab this opportunity and apply to this program.

I warmly suggest taking part in this program. This will be the best productive time spent, I assure! Each gathering we had I was inspired from mentees and mentors around- experienced professionals and students as me- full of determination and motivation to grow. Main takeaways were to continue exploring, testing and challenging.​

I believe in sustainable relationships that are mutually beneficial. This was the case with RBS program as SEB gained a wonderful employee, mentee gained access to corporate world and hopefully some experience and contacts from mentor, and mentor gained a wonderful friend with a bright future ahead of him as well as a lot of so-called “reverse mentoring” – ability to learn from new generation and see their mindset.

Elina Priedite

All positive change is the end result of learning. RBS Alumni Mentoring program was an inspiring learning journey, offering an immensly positive and encouraging environment for sharing dreams, trying new things and ideas as well as meeting wonderful people.

Martins Martinsons

The RBS Mentoring program gave me possibility to work with marvelous young people and help them in their future career and development findings.

It is a really engaging and full of personal discoveries process for both the mentor and mentee.

It is process of fun, discoveries and great contribution.​
