Having a mentor can help guide you in your career search. I have had several mentors help me on my career journal and when I switched paths I ended the mentor relationships in that field and built new ones to help me find my way. I am currently thinking about doing the national home builders association kitchen and bath design courses to become a certified bathroom and kitchen designer and I will be searching for a mentor to take me to the next level in my career.

Joining an organization like OAGE can help connect you with the right dependable professionals in the field of aging.
