KQED called me up to be the San Francisco Bay Area career hero on the California Report with Scott Shafer. Scott let me use his own career as an example for how to find a strength in seemingly irrelevant work experience. We also discussed taking a different approach to networking, and some things that employers look for in job candidates.
Check out the podcast; they even included the original take which has plenty more advice for people looking to beat this tough job market.
Comments welcome. Also, let me know what you’re looking to hear more about. In other words, what should Scott and I have been talking about?
