Career Bailout Plan: Faster Results in Today's Job Market. "There are jobs. Employers are hiring."

"By re-engineering the search process and putting the candidate at the controls, prospective employees are able to get together with pre-qualified potential employers, establish meaningful dialogues that benefit both parties, progress to reach a decision and ultimately launch themselves into a new challenge. Networking is not about transactions, it's about building relationships."--Debra Feldman.

Welcome to a special Career Transition channel podcast on Total Picture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. We're delighted to have back with us today a frequent contributor and nationally-recognized expert who designs and personally implements swift, strategic, and customized senior level executive job search campaigns Debra Feldman.

PrimeGenesis Onboarding


Podcast with PrimGenesis founder and onboarding expert, George Bradt

"Moving into a new job is among the toughest career challenges you'll face." George Bradt

Welcome to a Career Transition Channel podcast on Total Picture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. If you're a Cablevision customer, "Know Before You Go" is a phrase you've heard ad nauseam. But in today's economy and job market, know before you go is not just a requirement for a job interview, but necessary before your first day of work with a new company. If you've accepted a job offer, especially at an executive level, you will have a far greater chance of success if you commit to a personal onboarding plan before your first "official" day in your new office.

According to our guest, George Bradt, founder and managing director of PrimeGenesis, "Moving into a new job is among the toughest career challenges you'll face. Half of newly hired executives fail within 18 months. Many, many more new employees simply fail to distinguish themselves." George is the author of The New Leader's 100-Day Action Plan: How to Take Charge, Build Your Team, and Get Immediate Results - the Second Edition was just published by Wiley. I interviewed George in 2007, when the first edition of the book was released. (That podcast is still relevant, you'll find it here.)

The Second Edition includes 40% new material and updates -- including new and updated downloadable forms -- plus:

  • A new chapter on positioning yourself for a leadership role
  • A new chapter on what to do after the first 100 days
  • A new chapter on getting promoted from within and what to do then

Career Renegade


Podcast with writer, small-biz strategist, and lifestyle entrepreneur, Jonathan Fields

Is it a ladder or a treadmill? We get the inside story from Career Renegade: Jonathan Fields

"But, here's the thing. I've been asked a bunch of times, lately, how smart it is to walk away from the "safe option" of working for someone else to start your own business or even begin to build some kind of independent career or leveragable reputation on the side in this economy." Jonathan Fields

The number of individuals getting nuked out of their cubicles with little more than a cardboard box and Houdini 401k plan (which evaporated right along with their paycheck) is staggering. Every week in February, more than 600,000 people filed new claims for unemployment insurance. After years of toil and abuse many are finding their last official act as an employee is the humiliating escort out the door routine. If this describes your current situation, perhaps it's time for you, my friend, consider becoming a Career Renegade. Joining us today is the man who wrote the book -- Career Renegade How to Make a Great Living Doing What You Love -- Jonathan Fields.

Welcome to a Career Transitions Channel podcast on Total Picture Radio. Our interview with Jonathan was conduced by producer/host Peter Clayton.
