Transition Advice
A Good Mentor Goes A Long Way

As January is National Mentoring Month, we thought it timely to address the importance of finding an industry mentor. A good mentor can be valuable not only in your transition and civilian job search, but they can also help you develop and advance your career into the future. A mentor can help you: navigate your job search and civilian career, learn what works and doesn’t work in your industry, increase your confidence and risk-taking, improve your competence in key areas, get more visibility, and expand your network and opportunities. It can be a valuable relationship for both the mentee and the mentor.

Careful preparation and personal soul searching should go into choosing a mentor and deciding on the goals of the relationship. Give careful thought as to what your needs are and who would be a good match for helping you with your goals. What goals? That’s an important part of the preparation -- reflecting on your hopes for the future. What is your personal strategic plan, including your core values and SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats)? What is your action plan for the future?

As you identify your vision for the future, pinpoint what gaps exist between your vision and your current competencies. Make a list of people you think could help you close these gaps and build the career you envision. Consider your current and past supervisors as possible mentors, and keep in mind personality and charisma. Having a mentor who is a military veteran is recommended, as they have navigated the military-to-civilian transition, plus they may better understand your background.

Mentoring is a working relationship toward achieving your goals to get you from where you are now to where you want to be. Define a specific area for improvement, quantify an indicator of progress, set goals that are realistic and worthwhile, and establish a timeframe for accomplishing the goals. Get tips on how to develop a trusting, mutually benefitial mentor/mentee relationship in this article: A Good Mentor: Don’t Leave the Military without It.
