Author Marci Alboher to Lead Conference
"Shifting Paradigms: New Strategies for New Times"
at Mercer County Community College


WEST WINDSOR, NJ -- In this turbulent economy, jobseekers of all ages are facing new career hurdles and a tight job market. Marci Alboher, noted author, specialist and speaker on career and workplace trends, will address such issues at Mercer County Community College on Friday, May 8, at an Annual Professional Day Conference hosted by The Association of NJ Continuing Education Administrators.

"Shifting Paradigms: New Strategies for New Times" takes place at The Conference Center at Mercer on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. It begins with continental breakfast at 9:30 a.m., followed by the breakout sessions: "Twenty First Century Careers" and "Top Tech Tools for Today's Market Place." The conference concludes with lunch at 12:45 p.m.

A former lawyer, Alboher is the author of "One Person/Multiple Careers: How 'The Slash Effect' Can Work for You" (Warner Books, 2007). The book is the culmination of interviewing hundreds of people who are living "slash" lives, from a longshoreman/documentary filmmaker to a management consultant/cartoonist.

A frequent contributor to The New York Times, Alboher currently writes its Shifting Careers column. She is also a career expert for Yahoo. Her insights have also been featured in numerous media outlets such as CNBC, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, NPR and most recently, The Today Show.
