The Reach Personal Branding Interview Series podcast presented by Career Blast is focused exclusively on personal branding. It brings together the best advice from Personal Branding Guru William Arruda, NY Executive Coach Ora Shtull and our guests, best-selling authors and revered thought-leaders. You'll discover valuable advice, tips and techniques for uncovering and expressing the brand..
In the book, the authors argue as the future of work changes, critical skills and expertise—not the number of degrees you have—will be imperative for companies and their employees to succeed, and the most successful companies are already thinking about how this will apply in a world where people are living—and working—longer. Gone are the days when a four-year degree guarantees job security and the skills to stay relevant for an entire career. With the latest scientific research on how people really learn and interviews from key leaders at Google, LinkedIn, Airbnb, and MasterCard and thought leaders in business, learning and education like Sal Khan, Clay Christensen, Daniel Pink, and Whitney Johnson, the authors challenge the business communities to let go of outdated and traditional ways of closing the skills gap and embrace the urgency of re-skilling and upskilling the workforce of the future now.
