Where Are the Jobs?!!!!

On the Apr. 21, 2013 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Milken Fellow and former California Employment Development Director Michael Bernick about where the job growth is in the Bay Area and beyond. Also, Bernick is an expert on employing people with autism spectrum disorders, especially Asperger Syndrome. We talk about that. And as usual, I invite listeners to call in with their career conundrum for a 3-Minute Workover.

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

That led to a discussion of the nearly unprecedented plight of today's job seekers. An Associated Press analysis reported on April 22, 2012 found that HALF of new college graduates are unemployed or underemployed.
