Grow with a Mentor

By Jean D. Francis, Ph.D.

I met my first mentor at an early age: Mom. She was an exceptional mentor and strong role model. The example she set and the experiences she shared prepared me at an early age to develop the knowledge and skills in pursuit of my career path.

Early in my career, I sought a mentor to help maximize my full professional potential and create a clear career trajectory. Seeking a mentor was one of the best decisions that I had made.

Finding a mentor is a great way to take the next step in your career. Mentoring is a valuable developmental activity that is finding someone who has experience, is willing to share knowledge, and is eager to provide advice to help you reach your goals.
