USA Weekend on December 9, 2011 posted a brief comment by Jeff Wuorio on How to Find the Perfect Mentor. Searching for the suitable mentor is important. Best place to start is recommended to begin with a self-assessment to determine strengths and weaknesses and identify specific areas you would like to improve. Then try to find mentors with suitable skills and experiences to match. Some seem good at what they do but talk to as many people and include potential mutual interests other than just work. Don't ignore social networks such as LinkedIn. When meeting your mentor for the first time describe specific objectives right away. Good luck.
