In this new series we’ll be picking out some of our favourite YouTube channels and letting you know why we think they’re so great. From advice on how to ace a job interview to relaxing videos to help you achieve total mindfulness, you’ll catch it all on the VCR (Video Channel Reviews) feature.
Today we’re talking about iCould, the charity that aims at providing careers inspiration for young people starting out. They provide videos covering careers in a multitude of industries, and they really have got everything covered.
The channel provides interviews with industry insiders, whether it’s a lawyer, a carpenter, an engineer, a designer in a museum, and so many more.
It’s great to get firsthand insight into the industry you aspire to be a part of, without having to rely on making contacts yourself. It can be the first port of call, whether you’re unsure about your career path, or if you’re dead set and you want more information.
We love this channel because of how diverse the content is. Whatever your interest, there’s something here for you, and it’s a great place to start if you have a small inkling of what you want to do, but want to learn more.
The best thing about iCould is that their interviews showcase a different role, some of which you might have not even considered before. Hearing from the professionals themselves gives firsthand insight and a realistic look at how they got to where they are.
The videos are concise so you can watch one when you’ve got a spare 5 minutes, but they give you a great basis for exploring your career options.
