Talk Back Florida: ALL about Jobs

Missed part of the show? Here’s a rewind of the program on March 29, 2014.

Tornado warnings put a temporary hold on the St Pete Grand Prix and nasty weather threatened our area on Saturday afternoon so we brought WTSP Ch 10 meteorologist Kate Wentzel on the show to talk about the storm front in our listening area and when we’d see clear skies again.

 

Florida job stats just came out and it was good news for Florida… 33,000 new jobs were created last month, the biggest jump in 3 years. But at the same time, a half million people are still out of work.

So Saturday’s show was ALL about jobs … best jobs, worst jobs & how-to-find the perfect job!

Jo-Lynn Brown, Editorial Assistant with the Tampa Bay Business Journal talked about our changing job market, trends and TBBJ’s “Best Places to Work Award” that will be presented at a luncheon on April 24th.

Career coach and trainer Bob Canino joined us to share tips on how to find the perfect job… video resumes… how to network… social media & find what he calls the “hidden job market” where 75% of all the jobs can be found!

To end the show I talked to people who have successfully created their dream jobs!

Mark Mason is the owner of Team Sandtastic and he creates sand sculptures for a living! Mark talked about his job and how its taken him all over the world to create sand sculptures for people and companies.

Mark called us from Clearwater Beach where he’s sculpting a masterpiece for next weekends “Sugar Sand Festival” which runs from April 4 – April 13th.

We were also joined by Lisa Chandler, the event producer to hear about all the things scheduled over the ten day event and how she created a company that plans family fun events.
