I just started contacting mentors that may be a good fit for my situation and so far only one has responded and told me he's going to be unavailable for a week. Should I just continue making contact with others if I don't get a response within a few days? I haven't used this system before so I don't know what to expect
Hi David, I’d suggest reaching out to several more advisors here on the site so you can get a range of advice and some might have more availability than others. Feel free to send additional messages to folks and hopefully you can get a mentoring conversation scheduled soon. Best of luck!
Having multiple mentors is not unusual. if you are seeking a mentor for different areas, i would recommend selecting one for each.
Hi, David - thank you for your service!
What are you looking for in a mentor? What field? What subject(s)? I've coached many veterans who use this site and would offer to be a mentor if you could provide a some context. Thanks!
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll do that but I'm also wondering if I will be able to have a phone conversation with one or more of them so that I can get a sense of how we might work together in the future if that seems possible based on their other activities
