Mentorship is definitely important, and if the company you're with isn't offering it, you should start by asking to schedule a reoccuring one on one if possible. Even if it's just 30 minutes to walk around the block or get some coffee. Having a time each week to talk over issues is super important.
If your company/manager isn't interested in that, then it's an indication that you should start to look elsewhere.
“I'm running into a wall where I'm not getting any interviews or offers despite having 2 years experience in the industry.”
