Every professional can benefit from a mentor, perhaps paralegals even more so. A mentor can provide you with guidance, both in professional and personal capacities. Your mentor has experiences you can learn from, helping you make better choices in your career. These might be work-related choices or life-related. Either way, you benefit from the wisdom of someone who has “been there, done that.” Having a mentor also expands your network, connecting you to others in your field whom you might not otherwise have a connection to. A mentor can also be a sounding board, providing invaluable feedback on decisions you’re making.

Obviously, you’ll benefit by having a mentor. But where and how do you find one? Check out this article for some tips.
