A mentor is an invaluable resource for professional development. No matter how many books, seminars, and webinars you consume, nothing compares in value to a seasoned professional coming along side you.
Today I received an introductory email response from my mentor. I joined a professional networking organization, the Association for Women in Communications, to meet one of my goals. I discovered their volunteer mentoring service and quickly sent in my response, telling a bit about myself and my professional goals. With this information, they matched me to an individual with experience in like areas.
