By J.T. O'Donnell Tonight, I jumped on the CAREEREALISM channel over at Justin.tv with two of our interns (thanks Kat & Shannon!) to share with job seekers the 5 things everyone must learn about themselves in order to find the right opportunity. If you can't explain your strengths in the following areas AND provide examples to support them, I can guarantee your job search will A) take longer, and B) be less productive. In short, you need to be able to articulate your: 1) definition of career success. 2) workplace personality. 3) learning preferences. 4) work style. 5) unique gifts.
