Tip for the top: The mentor

Once you've found your ideal job, you'll find there's a lot to learn, and quick. One of the best ways of navigating your way through a steep learning curve while keeping focused on your goals is to find yourself a mentor. Having the ear of, and a ready supply of advice from, a colleague or someone outside the company who knows you and understands your ambitions is invaluable.

Find a guide

- Make sure your mentor understands your job and knows you well enough to provide real advice on how you should approach it and progress.

- A mentor within your company can help steer your career progression and ensure you're prepared for the next step up the corporate hierarchy.

- A good mentor will not only offer guidance on how to handle the workplace, but will also help you focus on personal fulfilment.
