Want to become a mentor? First establish what you are looking for. If you have clear goals then you’re more likely to have a better experience. Next up you need to find a mentee through your network or organisation. There are also many well established schemes that can match mentors and mentees. Once you find a mentee, it’s good practice to establish guidelines for the relationship early on with your mentee. Remember not to spoon feed your mentee, you are meant to empower them. Last but not least, don’t forget to use your mentoring experience to progress your career. Many employers value staff who can demonstrate activities outside of their standard job description.
