Navigating a career over the long run is never easy, but it can become more manageable if you have trusted advisors in place. When there are unknown changes in your future, you do not want to face them alone.
Up for a big promotion? Ready to change companies? Time to start your own business? Any of these situations can seem overwhelming, especially if it is the first time you have faced a career-changing decision. This is when a mentor is invaluable, but to have the right adviser available to you, the relationship has to be established long in advance.
The idea of a mentor is appealing, but most people have no idea how to establish a long term mentor / mentee relationship that impacts a career.
