We won’t tell you to follow your “passion”. Most people have no idea what their passion is or it is a fleeting moment or feeling. Instead, thinking about your values and your long-term goals can help you make progress toward clarity.
A mentor can help you ramp up quickly on a new project, skill set, role, or team.A mentor can also help you identify skill gaps, people you should connect with, as well as provide you with support and guidance.
Many people rely on their networks for filling knowledge gaps, finding mentors and people to learn from, hearing about career opportunities, hiring new team members, or learning about new industries and opportunities.
Start by identifying your values. Understanding your values can help you find direction in your career. Your values are what you care about and, when you pay attention to them, they can serve as a north star to guide you in your career decisions.
