HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT MENTOR

One of the best ways to find a great mentor to help you achieve your goals is to start by examining yourself. You should:

  1. Identify the reasons you want a mentor. Be honest. Write down your goals. That is the first place to start.
  2. Figure out what type of knowledge and expertise you want for your mentor in this mentor-mentee relationship. Is this the experienced person you want to work with. Do they need to have passion for their work. Can they identify and comprehend what you want. Are they in tune with what you want.
  3. Determine if you feel this prospective mentor could be a role model.
  4. Examine if they a good fit.

TRY AN ONLINE PLATFORM OR OLD SCHOOL ANALOG WAY

The next steps include a decision to search for an experienced mentor either online or by personal calls and emails searching for the right person directly.

OLD SCHOOL

You can find a good career mentor by looking yourself. It does take time and dedication, but it has been successful in the past for many. It can be for you also. To capture the best one for you there are several action that you should take.

  • Identify any conferences or industry meetings that are coming up that you could attend. Networking events may be another way to access a group of potential mentors. If you are staying in the same career field, this is more possible. For those who want to access a new field, gaining access may be more difficult.
  • Volunteer events and social clubs may allow you to locate others in your field of interest by general conversation.
  • Check social media especially by using hashtags and keywords to locate those potential mentors. Follow their activity and discussions to see if they might be a match for your interest. It is best to engage with a possible mentor first to get to know each other. Later you can address the possibility of a mentorship relationship.

Note that the pros and cons that I identify are:

  • PRO: You could find someone near you and it might be someone you know.
  • CON: It usually takes longer to identify your mentor that the online method.
  • CON: The mentor may not be agreeable to share contacts and experience.
  • CON: They may not have the time or inclination to help.

ONLINE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

The internet provides access to so much information including formal mentoring programs where an experienced professional can be found. Some of the benefits include:

  1. Easy, convenient access online. A Google search can provide a listing of quite a number of potential mentors and perhaps the perfect match. You can find the career categories available in Career Redo here.
  2. The one-time or regular meetings could be held and paid for on a monthly, weekly or hourly basis. Those that start or consist only of a hour session can be very beneficial to help identify if the mentoring relationship is a good fit. It will allow general questions to be asked and answered and well as clearing specific questions during an initial conversation.
  3. Most online services provide an easy way to search most any type of mentor, including business mentor, those for young entrepreneurs, retirement side gigs, software programming, data scientist, and many others.
  4. You have access to possible mentors that are located most anywhere in the world rather than just locally.
  5. Your first meeting and other sessions can be held via phone call or Zoom under most cases.
  6. A more time efficient process compared to the old school method.

MAXIMIZE YOUR MENTOR RELATIONSHIP

Here is a great way to maximize the impact of this professional relationship.

  • Especially before you begin your initial meeting, be sure to write down your goals. Then present them to your mentor.
  • Prepare for your session by listing your questions. A good place to start is to clearly identify the professional skills you want to acquire.
  • Be prepared to give feedback when asked by your mentor. It is a two-way street. Don’t just be quiet and listen.
  • Be specific, communicate well and be honest.
  • Use your mentor as a sounding board.
  • Work to find solutions and be ready for constructive criticism.

WHERE TO FIND A MENTOR CONCLUSION

My view is that the online method is efficient and results oriented. Find all of the career categories available here at Career Redo.
