Q. “I’m an HR professional and think it’s time for me to find a mentor. I believe it will help me further my career. The problem is, my company is small and we’re all so busy. I’m not sure who I can ask and if there would even be an interest. Should I try looking outside my company? What should I do?”
Yes, a mentor can be a fantastic resource in helping to further your career. Mentors know the industry, the key players, and the path you’ll need to travel to reach your goals. They can connect you with the right people, expand your HR network, and open doors that otherwise, would remain closed. You don’t have to do it alone. Find a mentor. It’s free, extremely helpful, and very rewarding.
First. Do your research.
