When it comes to mentors, there are different types we recommend you have in your career.
First, you need a mentor that is a role model for you. This is someone whose trajectory you can look up to and aspire to follow their steps.
The second type of mentor is doing the same job as you, but for longer. So someone that you feel free to ask the smaller picture questions you have from your day-to-day tasks.
Wondering how to select a mentor?
Your best bet is to pick someone who has reached a point in their career that you aspire to reach one day. It’s always best to take advice from someone who is where you want to be than someone who isn’t!
