Work with Marty Nemko, 11/2/17: Employers are yawning at our expensive degrees. Now what?

On the first Work with Marty Nemko at its new time, Thursdays from 7 to 8 PM, on the Nov. 2 program, Barbara and Marty Nemko explore how career-minded people can take advantage of society's starting to replace the Dinosaur--campus-based-degree programs--with just-in-time learning options: from Steve Wozniak's new portal WozU and LinkedIn's Lynda, to formal and informal apprenticeships, to You U: a more self-powered approach to career and life success.

In the program's second segment,  triggered by Adam Grant's new article, we debate how to address colleagues who aren't pulling their weight.

Interspersed with all that, we'll do Workovers: Whatever career conundrum is facing you or someone you care about, we'll try our best to help.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard now, at its new time, Thursdays from 7 to 8 PM on KALW 91.7 FM, in San Francisco.

The programs are archived on NPR.org, iTunes, and in perpetuity on this web page.
