What is Professional Mentoring?
Professional mentoring is the process by which an individual – usually either a student, recent graduate, or working professional – guides or is guided by another professional. Aiding career progression; mentors can offer advice, support, and assistance, with prior knowledge and experience in a wide range of topics and scenarios. Mentoring can take place both internally, in the workplace, and additionally, often, in a wider capacity with other companies, industries, and sectors.
Who Should Be Mentored?
A large majority of the most senior and successful professionals will have one or more mentors, supporting them through their career. Mentoring is by no means limited to senior professionals though. In fact, mentoring can be of benefit to individuals at any level. Often, being mentored at university and graduate level can help individuals to secure their first role and help them to develop their knowledge and understanding of an industry, company or sector Having advice from a more experienced professional can be of extreme benefit at a junior level, where there are often a lot of new challenges to face and things to learn.
