By CAREEREALISM Founder, J.T. O'Donnell One of the most valuable things the internet has provided job seekers is useful advice. It's accessible and easy to read. BUT, that can also be a curse. Why? With so many talented career experts out there (often with differing opinions), you can end up in the 'internet black hole' reading way to many opinions and wasting hours in the process. That's one of the main reasons I developed this website. By researching and 'approving' top experts, you can be confident in letting this be your one-stop-shop for career advice. With that in mind, I'd like to introduce you to a group of fellow career coaches who have formed the Career Collective. Once a month, they all write on a certain subject as a way to give readers a comprehensive overview in one sitting. This month's topic was about interviewing. I promise if you take the 30 minutes to read these posts, you'll already be ahead of the game. Apply some of the techniques, and I guarantee you'll see some results. PS - We have a great, FREE Interview Prep Tool on our website that would compliment the advice given below!

Here are some takeaways from my lessons learned and all that sage advice.
