The Answer Lady provides guidance on finding a mentor, what to look for, and more, for communication professionals stymied by the need for an advisor.
This is a great article on TechWhirl by my friend, Rachel Houghton. During my grad school years, my professors were my best mentors in the end. I tried joining a mentorship program, but the person I was paired up with questioned my choice of technical communication for my career field. (Ha! Look at me now!) And since graduation, especially since I’m a contractor and not an employee, I have found that having my friendships with people whom I’ve met through social media and especially those who were social media friends who I got to meet in person through the STC and Lavacon events have been great resources for mentorship. I feel that I don’t have one mentor, but many! That’s a good thing, because that way, I can get a variety of experienced opinions that can help me weigh in on information throughout my career.
Good advice in this article.
