Job seekers looking for mentors should look to those whose careers they admire, even if they're in another field, career coach Chrissy Scivicque writes in this blog post. Mentors should be those you can learn from, who will respect and encourage your growth and be willing to invest their time in you. "You also need to trust that this person is capable of giving good, solid advice. If you frequently question his or her judgment, it's not the right mentor for you," Scivicque writes.
