In regard to your IT career path, 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, NY — April 9, 2015 — 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 IT 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.”
