We’ll explore finding a job during the recovery… but not just any job, your perfect job, and we’ll talk about how to do it, too. One of our guests will share research that people are now finding great jobs through “weak ties,” ties with people who are acquaintances rather than through their friends. In the days of social networking and a tough economy, we’ll hear about people here in the area who are making this practice work for them, and more.

In August of this year, the City of Charlotte was informed by the federal government that they had received a large block grant to study energy efficiency region wide. City leaders went into motion and the result is a months-long study and set of recommendations for greater energy efficiency across Charlotte, from its skyscrapers to neighborhoods and individual homes. We’ll study Charlotte’s Energy Initiative.
