Be willing to do it

Ask your mentor if there are any podcasts, books, articles, or other resources you should be exploring. Try to gain an understanding of their perspective on the world. Their answer -- or lack of one -- will clue you in as to whether they're active enough in your field or career space to be of assistance. This is a crucial factor in the step-by-step guide for choosing your mentor!

It is essential to invest more time than your mentor does. Be willing to put in genuine effort and have your priorities in order. Don't get a mentor just because somebody told you that you should have one.
