Starting your career fresh out of school can be overwhelming. We all have questions from time to time that weren’t necessarily covered in classes. Your education prepared you well, but people can stumble through their first few years without some guidance. You need a mentor in your field that understands exactly what you’re going through.
Mentoring is usually defined as a relationship between an experienced and a less experienced person. In this partnership, the mentor provides guidance, advice, support, and feedback to the mentee. Some companies use mentorships as part of a leadership development program or a way to increase collaboration. Overall, it is a valuable relationship that brings out the best in mentees and mentors.
