Resume and LinkedIn Trends – Brenda Bernstein Radio Blog!

In part due to my hiring a publicist a couple of months ago, I have been appearing frequently on radio programs around Wisconsin and Chicago. I was also interviewed by a program out in Massachusetts. I thought that rather than write an article this week, I would offer you the opportunity to listen in on some of my interviews. They cover topics ranging from resumes to LinkedIn profiles to college essays. Enjoy! And don’t forget I will be interviewed for a full hour on December 10 on Wisconsin Public Radio!
