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.
If you'd rather email me than post your comments on this blog, my email address is email@example.com.
It kills me that career success often depends as much on sizzle as on steak. But lest I be viewed as offering only too-idealistic career advice, I decided to devote one US News article to how to create a resume with sizzle.
At least, I hope you'll find it entertaining. It offers such suggestions as formatting your resume as an Amazon page, infographic, or Monopoly board.
To assuage my guilt, I also included a section of the artticle on how to substitute hyperhonesty for resume-speak. Alas, sizzle seems to work better. HERE is the link.
