Being a mentor for someone, especially in the industry in which you work, can be a huge benefit for yourself.
You can gain helpful reminders for yourself, gain perspective, learn from your mentees, and grow in your leadership skills.
If finding a mentee local to you doesn’t feel like the right fit, you can always connect with someone remotely!
We’ve put together our favorite tools to run successful video calls for the best mentor/mentee experience.
Logitech C920x HD Pro Webcam
You can run video calls on Skype or Zoom without a good webcam, and let’s be real – the one in your laptop is only OK. This inexpensive option from Logitech comes with a full 1080p resolution to provide you with a crisp image. This camera also includes dual mics to allow you to capture high-quality audio. It can connect to your laptop or even your TV, so you can use it wherever you like!
Blue Yeti Mic
If you really want the best quality sound? Well, your built-in microphone is “fine,” but nothing compares to the audio you’ll get with a Blue Yeti. This USB microphone plugs right into your computer and gives you professional-level audio for only $139. If you spend a lot of time on video – or are even toying with starting a podcast – this is the microphone you need.
