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.
