Rashida Jones on Mentorship 9 to 5ish with the Skimm| 🎧 30-minute listen

Mentors at work. We know they’re good to have, but there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to finding one. They can be someone on your team, someone in your company, or someone in a totally different line of work. But no matter who it is, there are some best practices when it comes to starting – and maintaining – those relationships. This week, we talked to Rashida Jones, president of MSNBC, to learn how she found mentors – and how she sustained those relationships throughout her career.

In this episode, Rashida shares:

  • What she goes to her mentors for
  • How to start looking for a mentor
  • How to push past the awkwardness of those first few convos
  • Why mentees have to drive the relationship
  • Why it’s good to have more than one mentor
  • How to be direct with mentors about what you want to get out of the relationship
  • How to transition from mentee to mentor
