Marty Nemko, Career Coach; Former Columnist, SF Chronicle's Career Column; Host, "Work with Marty Nemko," KALW
In today's tough job market, career and job seekers are wise to consider under-the-radar careers. Dr. Nemko will reveal some rewarding but little-known gems. He'll also share what is working best for his clients in landing a job. (Hint: networking and a good resume are far from enough.) He'll talk about the art of onramping: how to get off to a great start in your new job, so you succeed rather than finding yourself soon needing to look for a job. Finally, he'll present his favorite low-risk/high-payoff/high-ethics small businesses you can start. Nemko was named "The Bay Area's Best Career Coach" by the San Francisco Bay Guardian and "Job Coach Extraordinaire" by U.S. News. In his private practice, he has had more than 4,000 clients and enjoys a 96 percent client-satisfaction rate. He is the author of seven books, including Cool Careers for Dummies, which reached #2 on the Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller List and was ranked the #1 most useful career guide in a Reader's Choice Poll.
