Mentors speed up career progression

THE best way to fast track your career is to have a trusted, powerful mentor says interactive marketing director Marcelo Silva.

“Most people stumble along or believe success depends upon qualifications and credentials,” Mr Silva said. “Credentials open doors, yet advancements require more, including motivation and multiple networks.”

“A mentor can show you the ropes, introduce you to the right people, suggest professional development opportunities for career enhancement and ensure you receive advantages for advancement,” he said.

“Finding one need not be hard. Look at friends and family who are like-minded and have made a success of their careers.

“Join professional networks, attend professional meetings, alumni gatherings and conferences. Look at former co-workers, bosses, academic advisers and professors.

“Your social network may provide you with information on who to approach,” he said.
