If you haven’t got a career mentor, get one!

As the majority of us have or will experience, misfortunes in our careers are par for the course. 

You may have already experienced redundancy caused by some of the following: 'divisional closure', 'company bankruptcy', 'takeover bids', 'company sale', 'irrational board decisions', 'loss of a major contract’, ‘key personnel resignations', 'a colleague taking credit for your achievements’, ‘market collapse'. 

But even if you haven’t, don’t get complacent: as Will Rogers said, "Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." 

One of the safest ways to protect yourself from the unforeseen, the unpredictable, is to accept the advice of an impartial mentor - and if you haven’t got one I strongly recommend it’s time you did!
