How to Find the Right Mentor in Your Career for Engineers and Scientists

Two of the most important things that you can do to develop as both an early career engineer and a person are to find a mentor as early on as possible, and become a mentor as early on as possible in your career. Many engineers try to tackle obstacles in their careers on their own not realizing that hundreds of other professionals have already overcome those same obstacles. Why not ask one of them for help? As an engineer turned career coach, Anthony Fasano constantly tries to help engineers do more with less in their careers because he knows how time is a valuable commodity. Utilizing a mentor can help you to save precious time by facilitating the path to your goals with the help of someone who has already achieved similar goals. As an early career engineer, this course will help you identify your perfect mentor and give you the strategies for getting the most out of the mentoring relationship.
