There are a number of reasons to seek the insight from a person experienced in the field that you wish to enter.
Before addressing too deeply on finding a mentor, let’s talk about a mentor and a mentee.
A mentor is an individual who is experienced in their career field who is willing to provide insight on the elements of a given field to those who are less experienced.
Mentees are individuals who desire to learn about specific or general information regarding a career field to change careers or advance their career path.
Your professional growth can be directly impacted by consultation with a good mentor. It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out or you are at a later part of your career. The use of the right mentor for use as a sounding board can have a positive impact on your direction.
If you desire to shift to a new field, this is a great opportunity to learn from someone who has been there and can provide great insight. They may be able to help you avoid common mistakes that people make. Beginning a mentor-mentee relationship can bring significant changes and point you in the right direction.
If you desire to advance in your current field, you can learn the elements usually desired for advancement to the next level. Great mentors can enlighten you with the best way to make the connections you want and to develop a new skill essential for the next move.
The internet supplies you with great opportunities to locate online mentorship networks. The benefits of this online method include:
The traditional method of finding a mentor can work, but it usually takes longer to reach the mentoring stage. It can be difficult to find a mentor in the field you desire that is willing to work with you.
You would have to do your research to determine where to identify a prospective mentor. This could be challenging if you do want to change careers. You could ask around in volunteer organizations for names you can contact in your area of interest. Social clubs are another potential sources to locate your own mentor. Social media provides an opportunity to join groups that could lead to a good match.
Should you want a mentor to help you in your professional development in your current field or industry, you are more likely to find a way to cross paths. Look for professional networking events, conferences or industry meetings
Evaluate yourself and determine what your career goals are. Write them down and present them to your mentor the first thing at your session. Your mentor may ask you questions. Be ready to give feedback. It could be about your life experiences or your leadership skills, technical skills or other areas involved with the field.
Be honest and communicate well. This mentoring relationship is being developed to help you, so it is to your benefit to participate strongly.
