If you find that you are in a career plateau, talk to your mentor about informational interviews and new networking connections.
- If you find that your current place of employment no longer gives you fulfillment and you really need a career change, or if you just can’t seem to move up in your current organization, try scheduling informational interviews. These interviews could be with contacts in other organizations or career paths. Discuss with your mentor what careers or organizations might be a good fit for you. This will help you to make an informed decision about a new career path before you make the jump.
To get out of your career plateau, you will need all the support you can get. Many business professionals have been in your shoes and are glad to share their tips and advice with others. Ask your mentor about possible networking possibilities for you. Your network can give you advice that can give you the extra push you need to get out of your career plateau.
