Not for me, I don't really like being told what to do.

It depends. Some mentors don't really teach much. Or what they tell you is mostly practical things you can learn on your own.

The most important thing in having a mentor is to know that you have to dedicate time and attention in learning. That you have to undergo the process of zeroing out.

It is, but still depends between the mentor and the learner. The mentor should have a capability to point out new ways and ideas to give. And the learner should always have dedication and passion into it.

I'm the opposite. I want someone to tell me what to do so that I don't have to figure it out.

I like mentoring. It's a great experience to share what I know with the young ones.

I learned a lot from my mentor. He was a senior partner in the firm and it was good to have him teach me the ins and outs of the business.

Depends on your mentor. There's nothing wrong with the system.

Of course. the best way to master your craft or gain new skills is to acquire knowledge from those that have experience and have walked the road before you

I don't know hey, I believe experience is the best teacher. Trial and error, people can't really teach you much because we all learn lessons in different ways

Provided that your mentor has time for you and to give you feedback, I think it makes for a great experience. It's not much use if you're just following the person around the whole time

Surely there are textbooks, online seminars, YouTube videos, etc to teach you and give you tips and tricks of the industry you want to go into.

I don't see the need for mentoring. It would be better for me to attend conferences to stay updated.
