  On the Sep. 12, 2019 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I describe a curated list of big-impact careers, future-ready careers, and careers for people who hate math.

  There are myriad job titles in the fast-growing and lucrative field of finance, some surprisingly, pro-social. Finance career expert Todd Massedge and I will disentangle the mess and offer some under-the-radar cool careers.

Career consultant Marty Nemko talks with listeners about work issues, from finding the perfect job to networking.

Scientists are discovering that ever more of who we are has genetic roots: from autism to addiction to Alzheimer’s, depression to sexual orientation to political orientation. People, especially prospective parents now have more information to help them to decide, for example, whether someone with a gene predisposing to breast cancer should get a prophylactic mastectomy, or someone with a severe mental illness should have children.  A genetic counselor helps them sort through the odds and options. On the Mar. 1, 2018 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Kim Barr, genetic counselor at Kaiser Permanente.

On the May 21, 2017 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Kyle Cassidy, the author of This is What a Librarian Looks Like, offering a surprising picture of the diversity of librarians and librarians far different from the stereotype.

In the program's second segment, I do Workovers on callers. Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you care about I can usually help.

On the April 9, 2017 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Karen Franklin about what it's really like to be a forensic psychologist.
