“New Landings Job Chat” began as “The Job Radio Show” in August of 2010. Originally the program was a Tuesday morning live on-air 60 minute program on 1140AM-KCXL in Liberty, MO.
In January, 2011, we changed our format to a web-based Internet radio program. Listener feedback and our radio team’s research showed that 20 minutes was the optimal length of time from our audience’s perspective. By moving to the Internet, we broadened our listener base from a local audience to a national audience.
Beginning in November, 2011, we added video to each audio podcast. As a result, our audience now has several options for accessing each program. They can listen while they are doing something else on their computer, they can watch the program on their computer, or they can download the program to a number of other media such as IPod, ITunes, CD, Smartphones, etc.
Each current program, or any of the past programs (Previous Chats) can be accessed on our web site (www.newlandingsjobchat.org). In the near future, we will add remote interviews with experts from throughout the country via Skype
New Landings Job Chat has three purposes:
- To provide information to job seekers, career transitioners, colleges (Career Centers and students) and anyone who needs information to get, or retain, a job.
- To provide a resource for people who coach and assist job seekers
- To provide resources for entrepreneurs, small businesses, corporate training programs, etc.
