Can One Combine Networking for a Job with Mentoring?

Can one approach an individual and ask this person to mentor you, within an organization that you hope to be employed with?
 

 
Combining Networking for a Job with Mentoring

Tricky proposition. If the request for mentoring with a person in a company you hope to work for appears to manipulative it won't work. If the potential mentor can be convinced that mentoring is not directly related to making an impression in order to get hired... It might work.

Being honest and telling the mentor of your aspirations with respect to their company is appropriate, based on the definitions of mentoring included above.
Perhaps the person who is employed with the company the mentee wishes to work for, can provide information that would be "helpful in facilitation of learning towards long term goals," as stated in the introduction of this page.
Ultimately this may or may not include employment with their company. Katie.
