Is it Ethical to Use a Resume Writer? Plus: What's Your Communication Quotient? (Aired 7/1/12)

Marty, Barbara, and Einstein Nemko

Is it ethical to hire a resume writer? On July 1 at 11 am, Marty Nemko will debate his wife, Napa County Schools Superintendent Dr. Barbara Nemko on those questions.

And to ensure both sides of each question are covered fairly, in the middle of each debate, Marty and Barbara will switch sides.

What's your Communication Quotient? Marty will give Barbara (and you!) a Communication test he's cooked up.
