Being a Good Mentee
Making the most of your mentor
There’s no better authority on an industry than someone who’s navigated it for decades. Finding a skilled mentor in your chosen field can be extremely useful – and the knowledge, experience and contacts they’ve acquired can give an invaluable boost to your career.
But finding a mentorship is only half the battle: knowing how to capitalise on your mentoring relationship can make all the difference, helping you establishing a constructive and beneficial partnership rather than having things end in frustration.
This credential gives you the practical skills and knowledge to properly handle a mentoring relationship. You’ll learn how to manage a mentor partnership, what your mentor is likely to expect from you, and how to get the most out of the experience – from knowledge and industry insights to professional contacts.
This credential is an introductory course which earns you a Progress Badge. A progress badge is awarded a Certificate of Achievement which can be downloaded as a PDF document.
A Progress Badge can go towards achieving a Digital Badge.
