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.

Overall, Candid 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.
