When you leave a job, don’t forget to collect your cards. No, not those cards, I mean your now-redundant business cards.
Question: I’m leaving my current organisation to take up a new job, and before I go I want to ask a director I’ve always admired if she will mentor me. I’m hesitant to do so, because I know she’s really busy, although we get on very well. How can I present this as an attractive idea rather than a burden?
