As an undergraduate student at Pepperdine University, Amy Adams' study abroad trip helped her find something she wasn't looking for, but would value for years to come: a career mentor.
Adams began assisting one of the school's program directors while in London. Their relationship at work allowed them to grow close and naturally turned into one of mentoring. When both returned to California, where Pepperdine is based, Adams' mentor continued helping her find employment. Her mentor got her a job on campus, then an off-campus position once she graduated.
It's been more than 10 years since the two met, and their relationship is still going strong.

Travel abroad, get a mentor. I know a guy who wrote a book who says this same stuff.
