Helpful for career switchers

LED has an amazing repository of interviews with highly accomplished professionals doing jobs that I'd want to do and at companies I'd want to work for some day! I also enjoy the in-between episodes section that talks about being a better professional and person. Overall, the resources are super helpful and compliment by job-hunt efforts very well.

Useful resource!

I can imagine this becoming a handy collection that I can go back to every now and then. Starting to think about Netgiving as a way to build my network as suggested in the first episode. Great job!
