5 tips: How to find career starters mentors

In addition, the study should answer the question of how mentoring support affects professional success. The success criteria were income and the hierarchical position achieved after five years. These 5 tips have emerged.

  1. Active search: Anyone actively seeking mentors who support them will make faster progress in their professional lives. This also applies to workers with only average intelligence and social background from the middle class.
  2. Networking is everything: Good "networkers" have an advantage when looking for a mentor. Because if you make contacts quickly and also maintain and use them, you will find someone to support you faster.
  3. To appear modest: The more modest the freshman appeared - but for all recognizably good performances -, the stronger the support from the higher ranking.
  4. Willingness to talk about problems: A willingness to talk about your own is also important for a good relationship with mentors Error and fears to talk. This openness of the career starter towards a potential mentor must, however, be appropriate to the situation.
  5. Social competence required: Without the social skills of the young talent, a more confidential relationship can easily get out of hand. Openness increases the mutual sympathy and the trust between mentor and young talent, but one should not exaggerate this.
  6. objectives Focus: When looking for mentors, it helps to keep an eye on your own goals. The relationship with a mentor also helps junior staff find out about them clear to become where mentees really want to go professionally and why this is important to them personally.
  7. Satisfaction: Those newcomers who were supported by a mentor were much happier with what they had achieved. So mentoring not only leads to objective, but also to much more subjective career satisfaction

Conclusion: Mentors are helpful

In summary, it can be said that the targeted search for mentors is actually financially worthwhile - if the mentees in Spee take the corresponding tips into account.

    The sentence still applies: "Modesty is an ornament, but you can get further without it".
    This will not change in the future. It does not depend on the content, it always depends on the perception.
