While some people may have the luck of doing a great job, being praised for it, and even being given a promotion, other people are doing an outstanding job and are not getting noticed.
If you find yourself in this situation, what can you do to turn this around?
Well, having a mentor can make a big difference. Not only will a mentor assist you to develop your skills, a mentor can also take on the role of a “sponsor.” A mentor -- i.e. usually someone who has been with the company for a long period of time and has had the opportunity to network among different divisions -- will be more apt to find out firsthand about openings within the organization, and will also be able to recommend an employee for a promotion. Therefore, not only can a mentor assist you with your skills, but he or she may have the magic touch to help you get noticed a little sooner. So what are you waiting for? Go get a mentor today!
