Why We Love To Mingle (And Why You Will, Too!)

Want to build your LinkedIn network? Need more connections? Want to make more career friends? We can help! Every Tuesday night from 7-9pm ET, we host a virtual networking event called Mingle. It's a fun and EASY way to make new professional connections that will help you get ahead. So, what's Mingle like anyway?! We know you're curious! That's why we decided to interview the CAREEREALISM staff to see what they thought about Mingle. Here's what the team had to say!

It's Like A Game

"Mingle is so exciting because you get to meet a huge number of people in such a short amount of time.... It becomes like a game because you see how many people you can meet in just an hour or two hours!" - Samantha Mick, Social Media Manager

It Allows You To Zone In

"I really like how there was a time constraint so that you can really focus your conversation." - Sarah Thibodeau, PR & Outreach Manager

It's Addicting

"I definitely think it's addicting. You get on there and you [only] want to talk to like three people, but then you end up talking to like eight people." - Ariella Coombs, Managing Editor

It's Easy To Stay Organized

"I really liked how all the notes are all there in front of you both while the chat was happening and after the fact, so you could make sure that you could remember what was interesting about these people." - Nick Gagalis, User Experience & Employment Branding Manager

It Allows You To Meet People From All Over The Country

"My favorite part was that I met people not only in my industry, but from all over the country." - Lindsay Robinson, Video & Web Content Producer

It Allows You To Build Your LinkedIn Network

"Not many kids at school are on LinkedIn. So, this gave me more opportunities to connect with people outside of the college and from different industries." - Zac Croteau, Intern

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.

During our weekly live Office Hours on YouTube, two of our coaches, Ariella Coombs and J.T. O'Donnell, answer questions live from viewers related to their job search, career success, on the job situations and more.

We complied a simple list of what we find to be the most common questions our coaches get about resumes. We hope you find this helpful.

Let's start with the basics...
