Melody’s Answer

1. Identify people you want to emulate
Instead of focusing your attention on people that have your ideal role or have achieved success, narrow your search to those that have similar values as you but possess skills or strengths that you hope to develop. You can find mentor candidates using a variety of methods, such as:

Attend networking events.
Find opportunities to volunteer.
Go to industry events.
Search on social media.

These are options and ideas for college and adults already in the workforce. If you are in high school, it would be a better start by talking with HS counselors and teachers. Equally, other adults in your life or area may help point you to a mentor or maybe a good mentor for you. Mentors are just people who help you shape your vision or focus that you wish to work toward.

Prasanna’s Answer

Linkedin is usually a good forum to seek out connections, some of whom can be your mentors depending on the walk of life you need mentoring on. You can use the connections you have even to seek career choice advices, ask about the field of work which you should choose if you are not sure between 3-4 different choices you may have as well as gauge where people's professional careers started and how they have evolved.

Prasanna recommends the following next steps:

Create a profile on Linkedin to follow others
Put in your career aspirations and send out connection invites to those who inspire you

Tyler’s Answer

Having a mentor is very helpful in gaining advice for life, college, business and finance. A few places to start in high school are teachers or other faculty members. Once you get to college, career services can help connect you with a mentor in specific areas of interest and/or alumni that are willing to help guide you in the right direction.
