A Mentor Can Change Your Life in a Very Positive Way
Overall, getting a mentor can be life-changing, but only if you’re willing to put time and effort into your relationship with them. Even though you might feel like your schedule is already filled to the brim with working, school, family time and more, Davis shared that realistically, even meeting with your mentor occasionally is enough to excel your career and make your mentorship both fruitful and successful.
“Although we’re living in a COVID-19 world and meeting in person is pretty impossible right now, connection is still essential,” she says. “Meeting with your mentor once or twice a month virtually over the span of a year, while regularly checking in via email can build a long-term connection even if you’re far away.”
