Mentorship is the influence, guidance, or direction given by a mentor. Becoming a mentor can boost your own professional development, as well as give you a chance to help others.

Mentoring is a great opportunity to show employers that you are a dedicated individual who is willing to go the extra mile in your work through helping others.”
