Humor Under Pressure - How Can Unemployment and Retraining Be Pleasant to Talk About? Dr Kathleen P King

Teaneck, NJ (PressExposure) October 21, 2009 -- Pink slips, unemployment, rejection letters and phone calls form job applications… What are displaced workers to do?? Scott Sloan of WLW Cincinnati Radio (and simulcast streaming on XM Radio) recently invited adult development and learning expert, Dr. Kathleen P. King onto his evening radio show to discuss these questions and more! Now you can catch the recorded version of the program and listen to it on-demand on the web. What will you hear and where can you find it? Read on to discover those answers.

• King and Sloan have a humorous yet informative exchange about unemployed workers, the benefits,( or not?) of education and training, how to identify careers, and select a program of study. • Scott challenges the conventional wisdom and in good-humor Kathy tries to show him the wisdom of training and making well reasoned choices. • They also discuss the pros and cons of online courses to meet these needs. • While Scott continues to look for shortcuts, Dr. King gently guides him to see why that is not the best choice for success. Call-in phone call and consult included, this is probably most of the one fun discussion about unemployment you have heard in a while. • And we all need a good chuckle right now, don’t we?

OK, now whom do you think wins the verbal challenge?

Listen in to decide.
