Career Counselors and Human Resource Professionals

No doubt you can recommend a wealth of resources to the "new" or "transitioning" professionals who ask your advice about career development. You probably also emphasize the value a mentor can bring to their career. But have you encouraged them to be their own mentor?

Listening to their own informed and innate wisdom may be more important than heeding the "shoulds" or "shouldn'ts" of an external counselor.

Mentor Me: A Guide to Being Your Own Best Advocate in the Workplace is the "mentor" most new professionals won't have. It will help new professionals ease the transition into their first or next career, and may be just the inspiration they need to "hang tough" as they try to fulfill business's expectation that they be resourceful in doing their jobs and especially in finding career growth opportunities.

Using real-life examples, Mentor Me shows readers the importance of aligning their goals and priorities with those of the company's mission and strategic plan. They learn how to rely on themselves rather than on their supervisor to define their own career path, and to act on that plan instead of waiting for permission. And in keeping with current trends of finding "mentors of the moment," readers also learn to recognize when they need expertise beyond their own experience, and where and how to find that help.
