“Stop looking for a guru.
Sure, it’d be nice to have your own personal (Dr.) Yoda instructing you in the ways of the academic force. But the idea that one person can meet all your mentoring needs and guide you throughout your career is a fantasy.
So stop searching for that one special someone. Focus instead on building a broad and deep network of people who can assist you.”
