The kind of mentoring you receive should evolve as you move into different career challenges and have changing goals, says Harvard Business Review.
“Early in your career, you may ask mentors to help you with specific skills. But as you face mid-career challenges, you need mentoring that’s tailored to your individual strengths and career goals. And, you need mentors who can increase your access to career-advancement opportunities.
Work with advisers who can help you take the skills you’ve honed in your current role and apply them to broader challenges. Attract these mentors by demonstrating your experience and articulating your eagerness for the next opportunity.”
