I love being a career and personal coach, writing weekly for both USNews.com and AOL.com, and hosting Work with Marty Nemko on KALW-FM, a National Public Radio affiliate in San Francisco.
I'm also making headway on a project I believe could change the world: getting government to require colleges to, on its home page, post substantive consumer information for prospective students.
In 2012, I wrote my 6th book, distilling my best ideas for career and life success: How to Do Life: What They Didn't Teach You in School. Then, I wrote my newest book, What's the Big Idea? 39 Disruptive Proposals for a Better America.
Wikipedia has an entry on me with all the gory details: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marty_Nemko.
Some of my best recent work appears on this blog but longer pieces plus hundreds of my columns and articles plus an archive of my radio show are free on www.martynemko.com.

This Friday from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM, I'll be back on the Ronn Owens Program, one of the most listened-to radio shows on the West Coast. You can hear it on 810 on the AM dial throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area or on the Internet at kgoradio.com
I've been on Ronn's show for 25 years now, so I have a pretty good idea of what he'll ask me about. He'll probably ask me to suggest some good but not-obvious careers, advanced strategies for landing a job, and ideas on self-employment. Ronn tends to probe me for what to do in difficult situations: soft-skilled clients, older workers, etc. In between his questions, I'll offer callers specific advice on their career conundrum.
