Don't be vague, ask a mentor!

(Importance of Career Mentorship)

Mentor or mentorship is not a new term, it has been there since ages. In the Indian context, the most talked mentorship examples were around Arjun. In Mahabharata, Arjun had Dronacharya as a mentor while he was learning Dhanurvidya, Bhishma Pitamah as a mentor when he was learning life’s lessons and Lord Krishna as a mentor when he was in the battlefield. Guidance is most important. You may have a skill but it can't be put to use without mentorship.

The Indian education system has always stressed the need for 'high grades,' which for students is misleading. They think a good score is enough for a well-paying position to attract them when the truth is entirely different. A mismatch between the university curriculum and industry requirements is a significant reason for the shortage of talent.

Mentoring in simple terms is sharing knowledge, skills and life experience to guide another towards reaching their full potential. As per the LinkedIn survey, 70% of India's young professionals say they are keen on seeking advice on their next career move but do not know who to go to. “Change and evolution are at the heart of the Indian economy right now, and organizations, startup entrepreneurs, salaried professionals, freelancers are all taking risks for the first time. In such an enterprising climate, quick, quality advice can be life-changing," LinkedIn India country manager and head of product Akshay Kothari said.
