The 3 Career Mentors Everyone Should Have.pdf
Mentor #1: You in One Year
• Think about your short-term career goals: Where do
you want to be at this time next year? Look for a
person who’s currently there, and seek her out to be
your "where I want to be in a year" mentor. Ideally, this
person is someone who’s been in your shoes and can
easily relate to your current experiences.
• This type of mentor is great when you need advice on
the little things, like the best way to approach a
project. And, especially if she works within your
company, she can give you the insider scoop on who
you should know and what specific tasks you should
take on to get to the next level.
