You probably know that working with a mentor is important to your career development. However, it can be a real challenge to find the perfect mentor and ask them to help you. Make the search easier on yourself by forming a "creative circle" from your peer network rather than seeking out a single person to guide you.
Sasha VanHoven, writing at 99u, explains how this works in today's shifting network world:
It's not person-to-person, but person-to-people. Networking is constantly listed as a necessary step in every article or book written about what you need to do to be successful — but no where will you find even one of them stipulating that the connections you make must be only to those older than you, or more experienced, or in your field, in order for it to be useful.
Not only is it easier for you to create connections with your peers, you'll also open yourself up to a variety of knowledge from industries and positions different than your own. You might still feel like you need one or two mentors in your circle who are older and more experienced, but don't underestimate what you can learn from those on your own level.
