Having mentoring experience is an attractive quality. It demonstrates good listening skills, an inquisitive mind and someone willing to empower others. Whether you’re looking for a new job or keen to impressive a potential client, talking about your mentoring skills will make a difference.
3. Build networks & become part of the mentoring community
Relationships are a key to success in business and your network is a powerful resource as it allows you to share information, insights and provide support. The mentoring community is growing as more and more leaders recognise its value.

It may be that your mentee brings opportunities to you, or you may simply spot the opportunity as a result of the relationship. Often opportunities present themselves as you share your insights along the mentoring journey.
