NOTE: I’m thinking of doing a podcast where I interview interesting people about the future of work, life and everything in between. Consider this to be the pilot episode. If I do more of these, it will be because of the comments and encouragement of my listeners. So, please do share your thoughts.
My guest in the premiere episode of “Future Talk” (working title) is Dr. Tracey Wilen. We discuss the career confusion of mature workers and millennials seeking to progress in their career, how to figure out a career path in this constantly changing technological landscape, what to do when you don’t know what to do next in your career and more. Get a pad and pencil (or have you texting finger ready) to take notes as lots and lots and lots of strategies are suggested herein.
