Find (or be) a mentor with new Toronto based app

Getting started in a new industry is tough. Book-learning is important, but as anyone can tell you, you've got to make connections, get some real-world experience, start knocking on doors, grab the bull by the horns, turn your life around 360 degrees, etc. etc.

An easy way to take that first step: Find someone in the industry who can guide you along the path to glory. A Toronto-based app called Menteer wants to make that happen for Toronto's job-hunters and career-seekers, matching those seeking help with established folks seeking to mold young minds.

Though the app, a creation of the Career Skills Institute, is soon to launch, the organizers are currently accepting signups for new mentors and mentees on their site, where they assess everything from your desired career field to what kind of advice you need to whether or not you want to meet your mentor / mentee in person. They match people based on different styles of mentorship, too -- you can even team up with a peer to share your early struggles and successes with someone in the same boat as you are.
