On July 15 at 11 am my guest was Rick Newman, author of Rebounders: How winners pivot from setbacks to success. We had a realistic, not pop-psych discussion of how regular people (not just those who got on Oprah) can rebound from failures.
At 11;40, I invited listeners to call in for a Three-Minute Workover, in which I try to help them take at least a baby step forward in solving their work/career problem.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 am to noon on KALW 9`.7FM, a National Public Radio affiliate in San Francisco.
It's the Holy Grail of careers: A good and ethically unchallenged career requiring only a bachelor's degree--and in which job openings are plentiful.
One of the few careers meet those criteria: medical technologist, more often referred to as lab tech.
On Work with Marty Nemko on June 24 at 11 a.m, my guest was Hanna Poczter who has hired and supervised many lab techs for the North Shore Health Care System. We'll talk about how best to prepare, the various niches, the careers' upsides and downsides, and other insider advice.
