The Peak Stage with Caren Glasser on Vitalcy


Pity the poor recruiters. They’re overwhelmed with applications. But that doesn’t excuse the fact that they’re probably going to ghost you when you apply to a job.

It’s a broken hiring system. But there’s a way around it. On Caren’s show, we talk about the path that brought me to career coaching, and the takeaways from my crazy Hollywood career – AND how they prepared me to help others navigate this midlife/mid-career passage.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the challenge of surviving and thriving in your second-act career, remember that you’ve succeeded so far: you’re here! Don’t panic. You have the ability to do this. Take advantage of all the resources you can muster, including what we talk about on this broadcast!
