Succeed with the help of a mentor


Career mentorship is an invaluable experience that can bring you to new professional heights that would be impossible to reach alone. Working with a mentor can also lead to personal growth.

Mentors can offer the following benefits:

• Accountability: Mentors will keep you on track to set and achieve goals.

• Support: You might get knocked down, but your mentor will be there to pick you up.

• Feedback: Mentors see what you need to improve on, even when you can’t.

• Knowledge: Learn from your mentor’s personal experience. They have been where you are.

• Networking: Mentors can introduce you to their professional circles.

Networking in a global society


Networking is important to successful business dealings. Whether it is making an impression on your CEO or reaching out to an acquaintance to explore mutual business opportunities, it matters who you know and who knows you.

In today’s global society, virtual and in-person meetings with colleagues and associates from around the world are the norm, not the exception.

Interacting with people from a different culture can lead to unexpected opportunities. And when you learn how to be sensitive to other customs and cultures, you’ll be able to apply your knowledge to a wide range of professional and personal situations.
