Find a Mentor

Seek out someone high up in the company whose story you can relate to and make her your mentor (hint: read her bio before reaching out). She can be a valuable source of information and guidance as you navigate within the company. How to start: Ask her to an informational lunch and use the time to ask her specific questions about her career path, using the info that you gained from researching her, of course.
