Finding the Right Mentor for You

Finding the Right Mentor for You

As much as we’d like to get to where we want on our own, it often take the support of others to really propel us forward. We get the help of family, friends, and other supportive people. In particular, mentors can play a large part in shaping who we are and what we become. A mentor can be found in many forms, such as a teacher or an older classmate or friend. An article in “I Want Her Job” looks at how to find a mentor to guide your endeavors.

How to Find (And Keep) the Right Mentor For You:

1.)   Figure out what you want

What goal are you going for? What areas do you need guidance in? What kind of mentorship are you looking for?

2.)   Get the Coffee

Make as many connections as you can. You never know who you’ll find to help you or who you can help.

3.)   Create (and keep) the Relationship

Once you’ve found someone who you can see as a potential mentor, it’s time to create the relationship. Reach out to them, and remember that a relationship is a two-way street.
