Based on a survey done by the company, 87% of 25-33 years old Filipino professional today are affected by a quarter-life crisis, a period in one’s mid-20s to early 30s marked by feelings of doubt and insecurity that may lead to anxiety or depression.

The basic idea is to carry out a mentoring program with other contacts through experts in different topics to solve doubts, those who want to approach a new project, need the advice to start a business or professional advice, thus improving the professional networking.

“While there isn’t one simple solution to get over a quarter-life crisis, getting advice from people that have had similar experiences can help navigate these career crossroads,” Linda Lee, LinkedIn’s Head of Communications for Southeast Asia and North Asia, said. “Getting an unbiased point of view from someone with the right experience can give you a fresh perspective. Remember that you are not alone in your struggles - it’s likely others have been in the same situation as you before.”

In this way, we can establish a new connection and continue chatting through private messages with that person.
