January is National Mentoring Month
As you begin your career in conservation there is nothing better than to gain knowledge and get insight from someone who has been working in nature and for wildlife for longer than you. Aside from the networking opportunities this brings, there is so much to learn from people who have already experienced what you are going through. Many in the conservation sector are very happy to pass on their wealth of experience and keen to assist in the difficult process of securing paid work in a sector that we hope is growing, it certainly should be if the green jobs agenda has anything to do with it.
