If you’ve been downsized by the economy and find yourself in the unemployment line, you’re not alone.
Out of work late night talk show host Conan O’Brien went through the whole gamut of Irish emotions during his short, tumultuous tenure as host of the Tonight Show -- frustration, feisty, humor, anger, optimism. He laughed and he cried as he exited his dream job. O’Brien is now on a nationwide comedy tour, and up next is a new late night talk show hosting gig on the TBS basic cable network. In an ironic twist of fate, Conan’s new show will bump the George Lopez Show to a later slot ... which is exactly what Jay Leno’s return to the 11:30pm slot would’ve done to O’Brien at NBC. Conan refused the later slot, and opted for greener pastures.
But, are they greener? Basic cable is a long way from the plum Tonight Show chair; so ... what’s driving Conan during his time “between jobs”? Irish author and job transition expert Conor Cunneen can explain how these and other emotions can help or hinder, Conan’s (and your) job search.
Talk with Cunneen about:
- How to get “fans” on your side to help with your job search like Conan has
- Whether it makes more sense to go after your former employer, or speak kindly of them (Conan did both with NBC)
- Conor Cunnen’s 8 building blocks to successful job transition
Conor Cunneen is a Chicago based author and job transition expert. His new book SHIEFGAB THE WORLD is a must read for those facing a job transition in this tough economy.
