Are you an open-minded person? Are you technically minded and would you like to actively develop your skills further? Then you're IngA³!
The Bosch Engineering mentoring program IngA³ supports women studying technical degree courses. We are looking for female university students studying mathematics, information technology, as well as science- and technology-based subjects.
Our mentors will open up opportunities, provide advice, offer feedback and help you grow as a confident female leader. They’ll coach you on questions like, which degree specialization is ideal for my future job? How can I learn to handle problems in a confident manner? How do I get ahead in the work profession? Our mentors will help you to plan your career and develop as a person.
The program lasts one year. There is an opening, interim and final event where all mentees and mentors meet in an official context. You can discuss your individual issues with regard to professional and personal development at this one-on-one meeting (approx. once a month) with your mentor.
The program kicks off on March 2, 2017; application deadline is January 31, 2017.
Travel costs to the opening, interim and final events will be reimbursed (more than 30km).
Voices and statements about the program:
"My mentor advised and helped me with all my questions regarding personal and professional issues. And even today we are still in contact even though the one-year mentoring program has ended. Thanks to IngA³ I now have a permanent position at Bosch Engineering GmbH in Holzkirchen."
"Although my degree course is highly specialized, with IngA³ I found a suitable mentor without problem, who was very knowledgeable in my specialist area. Thanks to him, not only did I find my internship position, I also developed more confidence in my own abilities. Many qualms that I had about my professional life have disappeared. I hope that my mentor and I stay in contact after my mentoring year, and that I can benefit from his experience and advice in difficult decisions."
"I now have a more concrete idea of what I can do later on with my degree qualification. I even found my internship thanks to IngA³. My mentor is at my side with advice and support for my private and professional life. Her opinion helps me a great deal in making decisions."
"The IngA³ mentoring program builds a bridge between university and later working life. This year is the second time I am acting as a mentor and I would like to encourage young women to be open minded and approach technology driven companies like the Bosch Group in order to discover what they have to offer. There are a lot of prejudices and doubts about whether women are even able to cope with "these kinds of jobs" – even in women's own heads. The IngA³ program enables me to share my experiences and put mentees at ease so that they can put their love of technology to use at work too."
"The innovative IngA³ mentoring program starts before potential associates join the company. Modern recruitment through IngA³ uses the knowledge of experts and managers to find precisely the right position in the company. The mentees can fall back on all the practical knowledge mentors have that is relevant to new associates – you just can’t get more detailed information about a potential employer."
