#1 Favorite Guest Returns to Work with Marty Nemko
I received more positive emails in response to my career counseling client Jeffrie Givens' appearance on Work with Marty Nemko on Mar 11 than to any show in my 23 years hosting the show. So, I've asked her back. She'll be the guest on Sunday May 13 at 11:00 AM.
This time, she'll tell how, as a U.C. Berkeley graduate, she coped with having to be a data-entry clerk...and what she's done to rise up. She'll also, again, demonstrate her amazing singing voice, doing songs from her one-woman show, Big, Black, and Shy. I'll accompany on the piano.
And if you were thinking of becoming a member or renewing your membership in KALW, that hour might be a particularly good time to do it because generous pledgers will get a front-row seat to the next performance of Jeffrie Givens' one-woman show on June 17, and after to attend a private champagne reception where you can meet Jeffrie, my wife and frequent co-conspirator on the show Barbara Nemko, and me.
As usual, in the second half of the show, I'll also do call-in three-minute WorkOvers on callers. Whatever career misery ails you, I can usually help you take at least a baby step forward.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays 11 am to noon on KALW 91.7 FM. The archive of my 1,000+ columns, articles, and blog posts, including my San Francisco Chronicle, TheAtlantic.com and WashingtonPost.com columns are free on www.martynemko.com. My sixth book has just been published, How to Do Life: What they didn't teach you in school.
