Merve, an employee mentor at Samsung Electronics Turkey, says she decided to participate in Samsung Innovation Campus as a mentor, remembering the struggles she had when she just started her career.

I could share some tips with regards to what they need to be aware of.”

Merve added, “The opportunity to be a part of the bright young students’ journey to the future is truly an invaluable experience. I wish more employees and experts participate and play an active role as mentors.”

“I learned a lot from the passionate young people.”

Tracy went on, saying, ”Samsung Electronics not only leads technological innovation but also puts in a massive effort for the future generation’s growth. I am delighted to be a part of its endeavors.”
