Wherever you are in your career, having more than one mentor over the arc of your professional life will add to your ability to find career fulfillment.

How to Work with a Mentor:

  • Share what you need and where the mentor can be most helpful for you.
  • Mentors are looking for the mentee to follow through and take action.
  • As a mentee, you will gain the most success by sharing what worked and where you got stuck.

Three Ways Mentors Help Mentees:

  1. Find out who you are and your purpose.
  2. Discover what is going to be a meaningful next step in their career.
  3. Build trust with clear expectations.

How to Get the Most out of Mentoring:

  • Do the work your mentor asks of you.
  • Take your mentor's advice.
  • Follow through, be prepared and share what has changed since your last conversation.
