To Find a Mentor in Your IT Career, Don’t Ask — Let It Develop Organically

CEO of ITtechExec Stephen Van Vreede recommends that all IT and tech employees have a mentor, but cautions them away from forcing mentoring relationships with strangers or loose contacts.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. - April 23, 2015 - PRLog -- Stephen Van Vreede, CEO of ITtechExec, published a new article titled “How to Find the Best Mentor For Your Career.” In the article, he discusses the important role of mentorship in forming a strong career path, advising readers to respectfully seek mentors by nurturing professional relationships, not asking successful strangers point-blank.

Van Vreede says, “In the IT and tech worlds as in life, we can’t do everything on our own. We need good advice, a sounding board, and the perspective of somebody who understands where we’re coming from. So why do so many people avoid mentor-mentee relationships? Because most people don’t understand how to get a mentor, if they realize they need one at all.”
