Thursday Dec. 17, 2009 | Finding a Dream Job During the Recovery

December 15, 2009 at 3:34 pm | Posted in Coming Up | 8 Comments

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.

  6. Where can I find Marilyn’s book locally? It’s not in the big name bookstores….. Also what was the website and address for the place that offers free help with coaching on Tryon St.?

    • Troy, here is what our contact said:

      You can find the book at Paper Skyscraper on East. Blvd. And after this weekend, Joseph Beth in South Park (right by the mall) will also carry it. The book has a website – and there’s a link there that will take the user to the book’s page on Or you can simply search for the book on

      The Professional Career Center on Tryon St. – their website is – 525 N. Tryon Street, 2nd Floor Charlotte, NC 28202 – there is a full calendar of services on that website as well.

      Hope this helps. Thanks for listening!
