I am currently looking for a mentor to guide & facilitate my growth as a technical professional & software engineer. What characteristics should I be looking for in a mentor? And where would be the best place to find this person?
Most likely this is a very specific ask with different answers depending on my needs and preferences. In summary, I am a relatively new (less than 1 year) Lead Engineer on a tiny team with about 5 years of Ruby On Rails working experience. There are topics related to legacy code and hiring that I would like to talk with a more experienced person about.
I would love to hear any advice on finding this person! Open to talking with any mentors that are reading this and is looking for an eager learner :)
