Today, standard advice and conventional wisdom such as "network, network, network" is inadequate. Dr. Nemko will present eight career "truths" that aren't so true. He will make liberal use of powerful and entertaining examples as well as statistics. For each of the eight, he will offer practical takeaways that will give you an edge in your career, whether you're looking for a job or are employed and trying to take your career to the next level:
-- Great under-the-radar careers
-- Great, low-risk/high-payoff self-employment opportunities
-- Ahead-of-the-oack strategies for job seekers
-- True keys to getting ahead
-- Wise, inspiring advice on the life well-led
