San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2010
This Saturday, June 19th, 10 AM to 12 PM, renowned career coach, Dr. Marty Nemko, will be lending a helping hand to those “having trouble landing a job, looking for a career transition, or thinking about starting (or closing) a business”, by holding a career workshop at The Message church in San Mateo. Registration is required and seating is limited. Those interested can register at http://www.themessag.cc or by calling (650) 477-2919.
In addition to being contributing editor to US News & World Report and Kiplinger.com, Marty hosts a weekly radio program on local ABC affiliate KGO Radio.
The workshop will be highly interactive and customized to each participant’s situation, following the “three-minute career makeover” format which Marty Nemko uses on his KGO radio show. Based on the answer to four simple questions Marty will not only tell participants what jobs or business opportunities are currently out there that will fit them well, he'll also provide direction on where to find them and how to get in! Additionally, Marty is very entertaining.
“What differentiates Marty from almost every career counselor is that they usually tell a person ‘here are some careers that you’d do well in’, while Marty says ‘here are the real jobs that are available right now that fit your well, and here’s what you do to get in,” says pastor Beto Carvalho – who helped organize the event – concluding, “Marty is a career coach, not a career counselor.”
Marty Nemko is a frequent guest on CNN, ABC, PBS and NPR. He holds a Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley and is the author of Cool Career For Dummies. His website is http://www.martynemko.com
The Message is a young church, started in 2007, with the specific purpose of working with people who may never have attended church regularly before. Meeting real community needs is one of the church’s goals, which plans to follow this workshop with others that will help people in their work life. “It is better when people teach us how to fish than when they give us a fish”, asserts Amanda Key, one of the church's volunteers.
