Mentors

The mentor team is united by one common goal: to share knowledge and spark passion for the ever-changing world of tech. They come from mixed tech backgrounds, carrying a balanced combo of skill and educational expertise, which is important when establishing trust in our mentees.

Our Alumni stories

I joined “Women Go Tech” to get guidance on shifting my career from biotechnologies to IT. This superb programme was full of new discoveries - an opportunity to learn from the tech specialists, get to know other mentees and their ambitious stories, see the leading Lithuanian IT companies from the inside. A few months after this programme I started in a new position as an IT project manager! I am very grateful for all these opportunities and support from “Women Go Tech” community.

Starting at WGT, I was only looking for the right ways on how to step into IT. After 5 months, I was already programming on my own without any fears to start this new career as a developer.  Once it was only a dream and today I already work at IBM.

The most amazing thing at WGT is not only the opportunity to find a mentor but also the fact that they are matched to YOUR profile and current goals, considering your expectations, personality and career plans, even if they are sometimes quite extraordinary :)

"Women Go Tech" is not only one of the best programmes I've ever participated but it is also a mesmerising community, which empowers you to start seeking for your goals. It is a huge motivation boost when you need it the most and a priceless experience. During this programme, I've started implementing my tech idea, I met many brave women and with the help of my great mentor acquired my dream position.

I am sure that my mentor's tips and guidance to the right direction was a key factor helping me to land in a new position as a tester. Thanks to "Women Go Tech", I had a chance to visit many different TECH companies, which increased my motivation to become a professional in this field, so that I could be in the same level with its experts and speak with them in thei language.

My advice –  find out what you TRULY WANT, develop an action plan accordingly and implement it step by step, without having any doubt that "you might not succeed". You will.

III season Alumni | Junior Tester at SEB Lithuania

I had some basic knowledge about programme testing before joining "Women Go Tech". However, my progress was rather slow and I wasn't sure how to accelerate and improve my knowledge. Right away after the first meeting with my mentor, we have started to solve this problem – frequent sessions, continuous learning, conferences, seminars… The whole package of events and experiences, which helped to expand my TECH knowledge to a great extent. Receiving valuable guidance from my mentor, I have now became a competent tester, able to evaluate problems from different angles.

III Season Alumni / Freelance Tester

I would like to encourage people who are interested in engineering but lack the courage to make changes in their career – from my own experience, I can tell that having the right motivation one can  achieve a significant breaktrough even in short periods of time. Myself, I have started studying mechanical engineering without any prior knowledge of this area, since I decided to shift my career after 10 years of managing a business. The experience and tips by the mentor I met during "Women Go Tech" programme helped me clarify my career goals and I have already landed a job in an engineering company.
