When you could have three?! Check out this account of the three types of mentors you should have.
“Mentorship is an opportunity to really learn from someone who’s been there before you.”
- Amanda Pouchot, Co-founder of the Levo League
There are many elements to the job search, but finding a mentor (or three) is a crucial first step. According to Pouchot, we should be finding three different types of mentors:
1) A peer mentor – somebody about the same age as us who learns from us as well as vice versa
2) Someone a bit older – this person should be 2-4 years older than you, and can give you advice on the part of your career path that you are currently, or will soon be going through
3) Someone much older – the advantage to this perspective is a certain objectivity. Especially if you are going through something particularly demanding or even emotional, a senior mentor can offer a tempered account of your next steps
