Angela Loëb and Jay Markunas, career experts and host of the Job Search Boot Camp radio show will host Merri Cronk, franchise expert and owner of FranNet of Central Texas, to discuss career alternatives in business ownership on Saturday, August 21 at 10am.
“This is very timely, considering many people are having trouble finding employment in the city they live in and the pay scale they have had in the past,” said Cronk. “With the right skills and ability to follow systems, for many starting an independent business or franchise will give them the security and control they had hoped their corporate careers would have supplied.”
Numbers released in the last few weeks show the U.S. unemployment rate at 9.9%, and, though some signs point to a waning recession, many experts say it is a “jobless recovery.”
“We have found that many of our listeners and personal clients are eager to explore other options during their job search. If they’ve always put off that dream of becoming a business owner, this is the time when they usually ask themselves ‘What do I have to lose?’ so they will look into what it takes. We’re very excited to have Merri on the show to educate our listeners about the alternatives,” says Angela Loëb, co-host of the show and author of the book, What You Need To Know To Get A Job Now!
