“A boost of fresh air and new ideas”

When Egle Zuzeviciute first reached out, she was unsure on what to expect. She had an eye on a bunch of mentors, but was unsure about their pricing.

After hearing about our ‘no-strings-attached’ 7 day free trial, where mentees are able to cancel anytime for free, she decided to go with Lloyd Jacob, an experienced startup founder and mentor.

Egle had recently started a Product Marketing position at Exacaster, a Big Data and AI company based in Lithuania, and felt like she didn’t have the expertise required for the job.

Exacaster is specializing in big data predictive analytics technology and has been named “Technology Fast 50” by Deloitte as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the region. “Working among the best you need to learn fast and upgrade your skills constantly”,- says Egle and that’s why she decided to go online to look for international experts.

While looking for relevant keywords, she found MentorCruise and Lloyd’s services. She was surprised to find this service, she says, and it was exactly what she was looking for, so she decided to sign up.

“My main goal was to get the guidance and learn from another experienced specialist. I’m keen to grow as fast as I can in my career and it’s great to have such platform like MentorCruise to help you.” — Egle

A few weeks into the mentorship, Egle was still enthusiastic about it. During this time, she learned about her own role and how to manage it, thanks to a Lloyd, who has been doing the job for several years. She also got important pointers when it comes to the overwhelming landscape of marketing tools: “Having somebody to guide you is a huge value.”

Finally, Egle says the mentorship gave her “a boost of fresh air and new ideas on how to improve your work and contribute to company’s goals.” We are extremely happy to hear that we were able to help someone grow and give them a better path towards their goals.

Egle recommends everyone to use such a unique mentorship opportunity and try out MentorCruise. We are excited to have you, Egle!
