Today, we complete our 4th year and begin our fifth with a new format. VIDEO! Yes, we become a video podcast that you can still listen to even if you don’t like my smiling face.
This is Job Search Radio. I'm your host, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter and welcome. Notice anything different? It's video!
Do you know why were switching to video? Well, I will simply say this is a very special day in the history of the show--- (I blew a non-noise maker and put on a birthday hat).
Happy birthday to Job Search Radio! YAY!
4 years ago, I interviewed Hal Klegman who, at that time was doing recruiting for a firm in Chicago named Roy Talman & Associates. We did what was for me a very uncomfortable interview., It was my 1st interview. I had never done one before.I thought I sounded pretty good but as I listened to it years later, It sounds pretty scripted. You want to know why? It's because it was scripted.
I outlined much everything that we spoke about. He knew the questions in advance and everything we were going to cover. I felt more comfortable that way. I was nervous.
Here we are. Job Search Radio is now 4 years old and I decided in conjunction with the folks at WebTalkRadio.net, where the show is hosted, that we would switch formats. We would go to video.
You can still listen and get the show through iTunes or stitcher or wherever else you listen to it. But, you know what? You're going to have my face to look at from time to time.
I just want to say that I think this is an exciting transition for the show. You can still listen to me; you don't have to stare at me and watch me all the time.You can still just listen to the podcast. But I thought the reality was it will be more interesting for some of you. You can see that lovely painting behind me that was painted for me when I still lived in New York. It is a place that is long since closed called Shopsin. Over my shoulder is a picture of my son when he was very young. That lovely plant behind me that is flowering beautifully . . . You have a chance to see my smiling faceAnd learn more about job hunting.
So, I hope you enjoy the transition. He is officially going into effect on Monday and, in the meantime, a few have questions for me, if you Multiply advice about some element of job search, send an email to me at JobSearchRadio@gmail.com . I can't promise I will cover every question. We will have a backlog of stuff. Send me questions. I would love to be able to help you.
And, in all honesty I have to tell you that the best way that I can help you is by coaching you. You may have questions about your job search that require conversation And they are not just a simple question.You, may have a question as to whether your resume or LinkedIn profile is good enough.
