I was a guest on CareerCloud Radio!

I was very fortunate to be a guest on CareerCloud Radio in order to give job search advice and to promote my latest book. (Yay!) Tune in to hear what you missed.

Here is a quote from the original podcast description:

When todays guest was writing his new book, he says he kept asking himself, “Is this idea worth a jobseeker’s time and effort? Will these tips inspire someone who has been out of work for a long period of time? He wondered if he was saying something new or at the least, giving advice that has not been given a hundred times before?” I truly hope so says Jim Stroud. “I want this book to be a breath of fresh air to every unemployed, underemployed and unhappily employed person who happens to find it.”
