Why should you have a career mentor?
A career mentor is someone who is in the job or field that you envision yourself in one day. This person can help guide you by sharing their story of success and information about a field from the perspective of an experienced professional. If you are working towards advancing in your current position or seeking to change careers, it can be very valuable to find a mentor to support you and provide ideas for your next career moves. Below are some articles that will help you find a mentor and how to use the mentoring relationship effectively.
Mentorship often starts with an informational interview. Learn about informational interviewing and see a list of potential questions you might ask. If you are an AFSCME-represented employee and would like to talk about your strategy for finding or approaching a mentor please call the CWE Center at 503 418-0273 and schedule a career counseling appointment.
