600 News Radio WREC

Interviews conducted with Forrest Goodman (News Director, WREC) and Michael Zurkammer (Founder, The CT Groups) between December 2010 and February 2011 discussing a job search/career transition at a high level and the free resources available to professionals seeking employment from The CT Groups.

These sessions are a high level discussion and do not, by themselves, represent a complete or recommended plan to secure employment.  As each person and their needs are unique, so must be the plan to reach their objectives.

Details on each covered topics can be learned at any of The CT Groups meetings.  This brief introduction to the total career transition process should NOT be considered as a full and complete plan to meet your specific needs. Each individual and their needs are different and will require adjustment to meet personal dreams, goals, interests, needs and other factors important to that individual. Statements made in the interviews are opinions of the speaker and moderator and do not necessarily represent the view of the station, management of their advertisers.
