Feeling like your career compass is pointing in the wrong direction? Let’s change that!
What is your career history? Did you already change your job not once? Or maybe you have worked in the same company and position for long years? Anyway, deciding to change something in both situations is not easy. Without any doubt, we can call ourselves experts in procrastination when we arrive at the point when we start to think about a career change.
Making a career switch can be intimidating and overwhelming, but having a mentor to guide you through the process can make it much less stressful. A career change mentor is somebody who has made a successful transition and is willing to share their knowledge and first-hand experience with you. They will provide a safe space for reflection and can help you understand what’s stopping you from changing your career, evaluate different career opportunities, provide helpful advice on resume writing and interview process, gives you honest feedback on job interviews, advise about networking within your chosen field, introduce you to industry experts or other mentors, and bring your skills up to the next level.
How to find access to mentoring? Where to search for mentoring opportunities? There are many resources available to help you find a career change mentor. You can search online for different Mentoring platforms created for that or look on LinkedIn for people in your desired industry that have made successful career transitions. Alternatively, ask close contacts if they know anyone who could act as your mentor or connect with local organizations related to the field that may offer mentoring services. Many of these people will be happy to equip you with the right tools to start down the new path ahead of you!
Suppose you want to have some certainty that your mentor is a professional and they have mentoring skills. In that case, you can search for them on date bases of professional associations such as EMCC Global (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) or IMA (International Mentoring Association).

Ready for your dream job?
One successful method for changing careers is through mentoring.
If you want to refine your career path and make a change, you may be interested in seeking a mentor. Having a mentor who is knowledgeable and experienced in the field is essential for making sure that your goals are in line with what you hope to achieve. It’s necessary to establish your elevator pitch so that when you meet potential mentors, you have something to talk about and can get their valuable input to help guide your career decisions. Your preparation will let you understand better which roles in mentoring you prioritize and be ready to discuss this with your mentor. Also, it will lead you to a smoother and quicker career change.
For example, if you’re currently working as a project manager but looking to make some significant changes, it can be unclear where exactly to focus or how to progress with any new plan. Having spoken with potential mentors who have experience from different angles related to the industry or profession of interest could help narrow down multiple paths that may lead to success. A structured framework and clear strategic approach are invaluable tools for determining which direction makes the most sense for advancing one’s professional career aspirations.
What is your dream career? Identify the direction of your professional journey.
The first step for those looking to start their career journey is determining their career path. One of the best ways to do this is to create an elevator pitch explaining what they hope to accomplish professionally. This will let you find more straightforward access to mentoring and let prospective mentors know precisely where a person is going and why they need help getting there.
Finding a mentor who has already succeeded in that field is essential. They will be knowledgeable and have also gone through and tackled many issues that future professionals may face. For example, suppose someone is looking for a career as a retail store manager. In that case, finding a mentor who has worked in retail management will be invaluable as they can provide insights and advice on succeeding in that particular industry.
Unlock your potential: discover the power of career mentoring/coaching!
You are not the only individual person who arrived at the point in their career when they started to feel stuck, bored, frustrated, apathetic, not learning anything anymore, noticing and pointing out a lot in the current job that is not working or just you can’t cope anymore. It’s one of the reasons why it’s essential to find a Mentor who already was there in this situation and has experience in moving out from it.
Mentoring is a learning relationship, involving the sharing of skills, knowledge, and expertise between a mentor and mentee through developmental conversations, experience sharing, and role modelling. The relationship may cover a wide variety of contexts and is an inclusive two-way partnership for mutual learning that values differences. There are a lot of different roles that Mentors play to let you take as many benefits of mentoring as you can. And one of them is the role of coach.
Career mentoring/coaching is a process of helping an individual to determine, strategize and develop their professional identities. During the mentoring/coaching process, career mentors/coaches may provide guidance around topics such as self-assessment and skill assessment. Career mentors/coaches help individuals prepare for future job opportunities, examine job market trends and identify potential industries that are compatible with one’s interests, skills, values, and needs.
Examples of areas that career mentors/coaches can focus on include understanding an individual’s career goals; preparing resumes; improving interviewing skills; developing negotiation tactics; enhancing personal and professional brand; learning about job search strategies such as networking and informational interviews; exploring internships or mentorship opportunities; interviewing with recruiters or member of HR departments to better understand specific job roles or cultures within particular companies.
Both, Mentor/Coach and the client, are responsible for a successful mentoring relationship are responsible. Most importantly, the relationship between them should be conceptualized as a partnership. It often takes months or even years to work through various elements of the occupational exploration process. Ultimately it is incumbent upon the two parties (the mentor/coach & client) to remain focused on collaboratively reaching a target goal through trial & error while constantly assessing progress along the way. By using evidence-based practices & theories together with creativity & innovation. Your mentoring journey won’t be locked just in your’s and your mentor’s one-on-one time frame during your mentoring meeting. Usually, you will also have support and access to your mentor in between your sessions.
If you are considering your career change, finding a mentor will help you start doing it quicker and help you have the smoother transition as much as possible.
For how long is it better to plan mentoring? Everything depends on your personal situation and your goals. For some, it is enough for 3-6 months of mentoring; some benefit from 3-9 months of mentoring, or even more.
