First recorded in 2006, and back because its as relevant as the day it was recorded, here is a terrific Career Strategies podcast with Peter Clayton of TotalPicture Radio featuring David Perry, Managing Director of Perry-Martel International, an executive search, recruiting and placement firm - and co-author with Jay Conrad Levinson of Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters: 400 unconventional Tips, Tricks and Tactics to Land Your Dream Job 3rd Edition.

Like his best-selling books, The 12 Days of Christmas Job Hunting is particularly strong on tips, advice, and suggestions for using technology in your "campaign" for the job you want. Be sure to read the complete feature page for links to David's blog, and other resources.

On to the Next


Podcast with author and Starr Tincup founder, William Tincup

"I want to have great conversations all the time with willing and engaged participants. Truthfully, I feel that most people fake their way through conversations. They kind of listen…they kind of care. I would say many people rely on their ability to wing it, or worse, bullshit their way through an important conversation. I feel this way because I was one of those people, and admittedly some "great" exchanges did happen, but what if I had actually prepared for those 'wing it' conversations? In hindsight, they could have been life-changing events. -- William Tincup

Welcome to a Career Strategies Podcast on TotalPicture Radio. This is Peter Clayton reporting. I met William Tincup at HCI's 2010 National Summit in Tucson. He had set-up shop in the exhibitor's hall, positioned in a strategic location where he could scan the activity taking place on the show floor. I gave him my business card, he gave me his book: Black cover, picture of a brown paper lunch bag. Flames are shooting from the top of the lunch bag. Below, the Star Tincup Logo, and the title, "Try Not To Fu@k This Up (but if you do, call us)." I was sold; and curious at the same time. "William, who are your clients?" I asked. He smiled, paused, and said, "look around the room." We're at HCI's marque event. The room is filled with the vendors you'd expect to see at an HR conference. I wondered if they had read William's book.

This week, William left the company he founded ten years ago, Starr Tincup. The title of the email I received was "On to the Next One." Today, we'll talk with William about "the next one," and, "falling out of love with something you helped create."

William's exclusive podcast on TotalPicture Radio is sponsored by Jobs in Pods. The only podcast where real employers and leading recruiters talk about their jobs and how to get them.

Time Management: A Podcast with Laura Vanderkam

You Have More time Than You Think... Really. There are 168 hours in a week, and Laura Vanderkam's book is a new approach to getting the most out of them.

Welcome to a Career Strategy Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio, with Peter Clayton reporting. It's an unquestioned truth of modern life: we are all starved for time. With the rise of two-income families, extreme jobs, and the ability to log on to the world 24/7, life is so frenzied we can barely breathe. But what if we actually have plenty of time? What if we could sleep eight hours a night, exercise five days a week, and learn how to play the piano without sacrificing work, family time, or any other activity that is important to us? According to Laura Vanderkam, we can. If we re-examine our weekly allotment of 168 hours, we'll find that, with a little reorganization and prioritizing, we can dedicate more time to the things we want to do without having to make sacrifices.

Vanderkam also explains, in depth, how to control investment of time so that "there should be almost nothing during your work hours - whatever you choose those to be - that is not advancing you toward your goals for the career and life you want"; how to determine what the "next level" of personal and professional development looks like and how to "seize control" of the schedule while completing a transition to that level; and what a "breakthrough" is and how to achieve it to expedite the transition process.

In 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think,  Laura draws on her own experience and the stories of other successful people who have fulfilled their goals by allocating their time according to these principles. It is a fun, inspiring, and practical guide that will help men and women of any age, lifestyle, or career get the most out of the time and their lives.


Brazen Careerist

"The best thing that you can do for your career is to get a strong set of mentors." -- Penelope Trunk.

Welcome to a special Career Strategy channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio -- with Peter Clayton reporting. I'm thrilled to have back on the show today Penelope Trunk, the author of Brazen Careerist and founder of the Brazen Careerist web site, a career management tool for next-generation professionals. Brazen Careerist enjoys about 200,000 page views per month.

"Brazen Careerist exists to give everyone an opportunity to build and nurture a network of trusted peers. Other professional sites allow you to display a network, but not necessarily build one. Microblogging resources like Twitter can tell you who you should network with, but it's tough to build a real relationship on 140 character missives. And social networks like Facebook are great for having a conversation, but it's a conversation that employers don't want to hear. "
