Don’t you wish sometimes that you could interview
somebody in the field that you want to work in? Wouldn’t it be nice to know
what your day-to-day life would be like as well as your responsibilities and
required skill set? Now, there is an easy way to find out all of that
information without leaving your computer.
Candid Career is a great service that posts video
interviews from all different fields of employment. These videos can answer many of your
questions about the future jobs that you aspire for. For example, if you wanted to go into Public
Relations, like myself, you could link to Candid Career from HireACane and
watch interviews from PR professionals talking about what their jobs are like
and what you need to do to reach that position.
Candid Career is also extremely easy to navigate. You
can search by job title, major, industry, or just for general career
advice. The career advice section
includes sections such as how to act at a career fair, how to catch the boss’s
eye, and how to effectively write cover letters and résumés.
Career can be a great tool to use if you need to find out information about a
potential job in a short amount of time.
The interviews are detailed and come from professionals who have
succeeded in their field. You can access
Candid Career through HireACane or by clicking here.
