It's important to seek out a mentor who can help you recognize your strengths and weaknesses and opportunities to advance your career, writes Susan Vitale, chief marketing officer at iCIMS. Look for a trustworthy individual with a work history that you admire, she advises. Even if you don't always see eye to eye with your mentor, "you should commit to keeping an open mind and taking your mentor's valuable perspective into account when developing your career strategy," she writes.
