Phoenix, AZ (PressExposure) June 19, 2009 -- National and international jobseekers can find solid job, career and life advice over Internet radio, starting Monday, June 22nd with the online kickoff of âCareer Launch...with Jane & Al', a weekly streaming live internet radio show that will explore career and work issues facing today's job seekers and career changers.
âCareer Launch...with Jane & Alâ will be hosted by Phoenix entrepreneurs Jane and Al Andersen, experienced career coaches, sponsors of Phoenix's Pinkedin Job Networking Party, owners of Compass Consulting Team & 8 Elements Training Company, and former executives in corporate America. They will be joined every week by special guests known for their career savvy and job search expertise.
Career Launch...with Jane & Al goes live next Monday, June 22nd at 8 am Pacific time (11am EST) at http://bit.ly/aTfQx. It continues weekly every Monday at the same time. Simply click on the radio player at the link and a live stream will unfold. Shows will be archived at the link for later listening and are downloadable. Every Monday morning, join Jane & Al for 60 minutes of "useful" career and job search information, a bit of humor, loads of lively discussion, and a kick of inspiration.
âWe want to help jobseekers and career changers get much needed motivation, useful and helpful information, tried and true job search techniques, and most importantly, a sense of community with others to know that they are not alone out there,â says co-host Jane Andersen. âSince unemployment is a world issue and not just a local problem, it made sense to take our message, skills, talents, and resource connections to an Internet audience, where we could really give back and make a difference in someone else's life."
âCareer Launchâ listeners will be exposed to new job search technology tips, learn what recruiters know, hear do's and don'ts from the hiring managers themselves, and get empowered to take the necessary steps toward achieving their work-life-career goals. Jane & Al's first weekly episode, âLaunch Your Careerâ will take listeners through a quick overview of the showâs goals and whatâs coming in the coming weeks. The first special guest, Darylle Virginia Dennis, of 7 Steps Inc will discuss her thoughts on creating "inspired action" towards the job search, the importance of keeping a positive mental attitude and setting the ground work for success.

"It's not enough to just know what to do - sometimes you need that extra "kick" in the pants to get your engine going and be the successful person you know you can become,â said co-host Al Andersen. âOur show will be a mixture of solid job and career advice, salted with some of that tough love."
