About Us

I am a career consultant who has helped hundreds of job seekers with their career crossroads through various career services and coaching. I have coached and served hundreds of federal employees as well as consulting with mid-level professionals. I created this podcast for the all of those who are looking for familiar voices to identify within their career path. There are job seekers who are women, minorities, physically challenged, differently-abled, LGBT, and others whose career advice is often missing to help them find opportunities. My mission is to provide them with the voices he or she can relate. Sure we will offer universal job search advice especially as it refers to the new job search techniques and tools or the modern job search. But we will offer those job seekers whose communities are underserved and under-represented job advice to help them thrive in this challenging employment environment. This podcast is a complement to the award-winning blog, "The Voice of Job Seekers." The blog has received multiple awards and recognition as a top career advice blog. FlexJobs and Job Monkey named the podcast as top eight career podcasts! I would love for you to subscribe to the podcast as well as visit TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com to read the articles. If you like what you see, subscribe to the weekly newsletter. If you need help with your job search, feel free to call or text me at 708-362-9822!

Notable job gains occurred in professional and business services, construction, health care, and social assistance.” The only underemployment related stats are here: “The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) was little changed at 4.7 million in April. These individuals, who would have preferred full-time employment, were working part-time because reduced hours or because they were unable to find full-time jobs.” Highlights: Find the April’s Bureau of Labor and Statistics report here. Underemployment Part-time workers who can’t find full-time jobs in their field People voluntarily work pt because they are in-between career decisions People voluntarily pt because that is their decision – to work two or three pt jobs because they love those areas PayScale survey, 46 percent of respondents said they believed they were underemployed. Of those respondents, 76 percent said they felt underemployed because they were not using their education or training. While the Bureau of Labor Statisticsdoes not measure underemploymentbecause of “the difficulty of developing an objective set of criteria,” it is safe to say that underemployment is a severe social challenge harming our economy.
