How do I find a mentor?

Answer

There are a few places to consider starting your search for a mentor. If you are employed, you might ask your employer if they have a program that links junior workers with reliable and more experienced employees.

If your company doesn’t have a formal program, think about asking someone who can help you with your short- and long-term career goals. It could be someone at work, though you should make sure your supervisor is on board with the plan. It could also be a former boss or instructor.

An open, honest mentorship can support and guide you throughout your career.
