There's something that I'm not quite getting. I've been working only in small teams and for the past 3 years I've been working "solely". Hence, if my questions look stupid, please understand why.

  1. Is "mentorship" something one should seek outside work / after-hours as some services he/she has to pay for? 1.1.Or is mentorship something that you can only find inside the company one works for?

2.What should / can someone like me do in order to get a mentor?

3.Is is wrong to say one needs a mentor to validate his/her own ideas and help improve beyond that?
