Does your company have a mentoring program? About 70% of Fortune 500 companies do.

Even if you don’t have a formal way to seek out a mentor, consider doing the legwork to find one on your own. With layoffs throughout corporate America, one of the best ways to nurture your career is through a mentor, especially if you’re a young professional.

“Without as many opportunities ... mentoring becomes a more strategic avenue for career development,” says Beth Carvin, CEO and president of Nobscot Corp., a retention-management consulting firm.
