Want to Find a Good Mentor? Be a Good Mentee!

2) Present Yourself Accordingly: Few people will be chomping at the bit to mentor someone who doesn’t look like they have the potential to be successful. After all, who wants to look even slightly responsible for trash? Don’t think that you can simply use “I’m a sister, too!” to get the senior VP at your company to mentor you if you’re an admin; make sure that your presentation is on point and that you approach professionally. Ask if you could meet him or her for a quick cup of coffee and be prepared to explain what it is you want from the relationship, what your goals are and why you selected them.
