Or maybe you're just ready to take the next step in your career.
Either way, the right mentor can help you get you get there faster!
What Do You Want To Do?
Chances are someone out there is already doing what you want to do!
Look at people in your network, on LinkedIn, or even podcasts or blogs to be potential mentors.
Don't be afraid - you'd be surprised how many people are willing to help!
Make A Connection
Once you've found someone, reach out with questions. Have an informal conversation.
Having a mentor is a long-term relationship, so find someone you naturally get along with.
If it doesn’t feel right, feel free to find someone else.
What should you do after your initial meeting with a potential mentor?
Send an email with your career goals
Schedule a follow-up meeting
Wait for them to contact you
Set Realistic Expectations
Consider: How often do you want to meet with your mentor?
How do you want them to give you feedback?
Make sure your mentor has the time and energy to dedicate to you.
Put In The Work
Don’t expect your mentor to carry the relationship.
Set your own goals, make plans, and above all, ASK FOR FEEDBACK.
If you show that you're committed, your mentor will be more willing to work with you.
How should you react when your mentor challenges a decision you've made?
Find a new mentor
Be open to it
Express your disagreement
To get started, just choose ONE person.
Reach out, invite for coffee ☕ or a Zoom chat.
The more you do it, the easier it will be!
