We all know that having a mentor, and having access to a mentor’s professional network, are some of the best assets we have for professional advancement. At the same time, it is not always clear how to find a mentor, invite them to mentor you, or know how to use the mentor’s time and energy appropriately. In this workshop, you will learn some practical and effective strategies for landing a great mentor, cultivating a positive relationship, and using their expertise to develop your skills and career.
