How likely is it to find a mentor in the finance world?
I don't know what the world of finance has turned into today, but I've learned it's a very cut-throat community. There's a lot of opportunities, but it seems like connections are everything. What are the chances I'll find someone willing to help me out and give me the resources to grow my skills?

Finding a mentor in any field is challenging, and finance is no different. Tell me a little bit more about yourself before I answer in full: high school / college, year, areas of interest, etc.
Best of luck!
Good luck on your quest for a mentor!
I would recommend finding a mentor that makes you feel comfortable. Seems simple, but this may take time. Find someone who is genuinely passionate about helping others, has time to help others, either meeting once a week or whatever you both decide to touch base and someone who wants to see you personally and professionally grow.
I just recommend being open. Who supports your career journey may surpise you.
