Work with Marty Nemko, 1/24/16: Career Training at Community College

I probed 3-college president, currently at Napa Valley College, on top career training programs at Bay Area community colleges. We also discussed what it's really like to be a college president---less power than one might think.

Plus my wife Barbara Nemko and I tackled listener queries: an average-performing 53-year old manager who was just let go and a reluctant soft-skilled job seeker.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco, and worldwide on KALW.org. The show is archived on NPR.org and iTunes.com and permanently here on KALW.org

Marty Nemko was called "job coach extraordinaire" by U.S. News and "The Bay Area's best career coach" by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. He has written 20 essays in TIME's Ideas section, and 1240 for PsychologyToday.com. Previously, his career column appeared for six years in the San Francisco Chronicle and then wrote The Big Idea continuing series on WashingtonPost.com and the Working it Out column on TheAtlantic.com. In his 30th year as a career and education advisor, Marty Nemko has served 5,400 clients and enjoys a 96% client-satisfaction rate.
