When you're trying to get your career going, there's a lot of pressure to find a mentor who can guide you through the ups and downs. But you don't need to lock down a mentor to get all that great help and advice. In this video from the Business Insider YouTube channel, Jenny Blake, career strategist and author of Pivot: The Only Move That Matters is Your Next One, suggests you try and book one-off mentoring sessions with people you think can help you. Reach out and ask them if you chat for 10 to 20 minutes over the phone, take a walk with them, chat over lunch or even join them for an exercise class if you go to the same gym. One-off sessions help you avoid the awkward "will you be my mentor?" question, and that might make them more willing to help you. If things go well, you can always follow up later on. It also leaves you open to being mentored by other people, which can help you see multiple perspectives.
