What are they? People with power, success and influence in your chosen field who take an interest in your growth and provide you with periodic advice. As they learn about you and watch you grow, they can also be a rich source of job and growth opportunities for you.
Mentors can be incredibly helpful to you as you plan for, start and grow your career.
Search your profession or career field. Read articles published by people in your field. Select universities and colleges with the finest programs and connect with a handful of outstanding professors.
Look locally for people who have an excellent reputation in your field.
Then select one and write them a letter that:
If they agree to be a mentor, setup a contact every 1-2 months. Keep your contacts short and to the point. Their time is very limited and you want to show them you understand that. Make sure you send them information of interest, as well as taking from them. To work, it needs to be balanced.
If they can't make the commitment, ask them if they have someone they would recommend who you could contact.
Then repeat the process.
Ideally you will have one to two mentors at all times.
