Hey amazing Elpha's!
I am recently transitioning from startup to PM role, hopefully at some good company. While I do so, I realised we need to network and ask people to refer etc. While I was fortunate to have @Sambhavi helping me through Elpha, I did find another guy from Product School, who texted me and said was interested to mentor me.
In moments he had my number and also asked for a quick chat. I had some time to think, because my battery ran out, and I just want to know, what's this whole mentoring thing like? I mean how long should we keep chatting and then ask for reference etc? What are the things to share and not share while discussions or chats?
Its not that I dont know mentoring, but at Indian Institute of Management, Banglore we scheduled slots with mentors and they guided us. No chats or anything!
Anyone like me around, or have been in similar situation, let me know how to handle, as well manage such situations!
