The Career Confidante

By Marie Zimenoff

In the past decade, theories about how we would all need to be “free agents,” in charge of our own career trajectory, have become reality. While there is a good deal of talk about this new reality, little tangible direction exists about how to thrive, not just survive, in this new workforce.brbr Join career and leadership development expert Marie Zimenoff as she invites you to learn what you need to know today for tomorrow’s career success. She will share the inside scoop on hiring trends, explain how to earn a promotion, and explore what hiring managers are saying across a variety of industries.brbr Mondays at 3 PM Pacific on VoiceAmerica Business, Marie will provide a featured topic, interview national leaders and review the latest career management tools. You will benefit from a weekly Get Career Smart(tm) tip and featured job of the week, in addition to practical strategies in branding, career transition, advancement, job search, resumes, interviewing, and social media.
