Advice Provides Pointers. Lisa shouldn’t only reach out to advisors who might solve her problem. Instead, advisors can provide pointers to individuals, locations, or writings that have relevant expertise. For example, from church Lisa knows Cynthia, who has a managerial role in human resources and is generally knowledgeable about trends. Cynthia recommends an excellent modern guide to rejoining the workforce after motherhood, with pitfalls, typical interview questions, etc. Cynthia also tells Lisa about an upcoming seminar that is on topic.
