upcoming show, Work with Marty Nemko

Marty Nemko's Five August 2012 Commonwealth Club Talks Distilled (airs 9/2/12)

I will have made five presentations during the Commonwealth Club's month on The Future of Work. In the Sep. 2, 2012 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I distill those presentations into one hour on:

  • under-the-radar careers for 2013 and beyond

  • not-obvious strategies for getting ahead (or at least not laid off)
  • how to beat the odds against successful self-employment.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays from 11 am to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM, San Francisco.
