Khizar -

Mentors can definitely help your personal growth but it is helpful to identify clear SMART objectives you want to achieve, what you are willing to do to achieve those and what you will need from a potential mentor before you get started. Such info is often captured in a mentoring contract between mentor and mentee.

A more informal relationship might also help but there could be expectation gaps on both sides.

I have not used one myself, but have mentored a couple. They said it was very useful for them. They are now PM's.

While remote mentors are certain possible and valuable, it helps if someone you know is willing to mentor you in your workplace or location.
