How To Network and Select a Mentor. [Second Edition.]
Stevens, Paul
This booklet explains the value of networking--a procedure for establishing connections, securing information, and making problem-solving bridges out of shared experiences of work. It advises looking for networking opportunities to discover career strategy techniques as well as to provide support and, perhaps, to find a new or better job. The booklet also describes the value of having a mentor; types of mentors; how a mentor relationship can be established; and how mentors support, challenge, and provide vision. A networking and mentor questionnaire are provided to help readers discern their attitudes toward and knowledge of networking and having a mentor. A list of 12 networks in Australia is provided, along with a bibliography listing 7 sources on networking, 3 sources for information on mentoring, and an additional sources for other information.
