Finding a mentor can be an integral part of your career planning. A mentor is someone who agrees to share their skills, knowledge, expertise, and professional contacts with you. Mentors can help you set career goals, resolve difficult problems, and make sound career decisions.
Some questions you can ask yourself about your mentoring relationship in terms of your greater career goals may include:
“What are you looking to achieve after our time together?”
“What would success look like to you as a result of this relationship?”
“Looking back a year from now, what will need to happen for you to think things have gone brilliantly with your training?”
