Wondering if I should incorporate some new tactics into my mentoring. And if so, what those would be.
I recently created GetADevJob.com to help answer common questions I get when mentoring people in the midst of a career switch. Things like "Can I teach myself to code and get a job?", "What do I need to do to get hired without a degree?" and most of all, "How did you/others do it?”. When I first started applying to jobs I was a total mess. Tip lists and checklists were good, but I got the most value out of someone sharing their personal experience. It helped me see the big picture and gave purpose to my actions. This is what I created GetADevJob.com around, but I realize not everyone is like me.
I'm wondering if I should use some new tactics in my mentoring and the new site. So, when you learn something new, do you prefer having a guide that tells you to do X-Y-Z or do you prefer more of an observational approach? Perhaps watching someone do it first and then giving it a shot yourself?
