In this HCI Podcast episode, Dr. Jonathan H. Westover talks with Mark Herschberg about the skills essential to thriving organizations and how individuals and organizations alike can work to develop them.
For many of us, from the time we’re in high school, we’re taught the value of making a career plan. Whether it’s a five-year plan or a 10-year plan, we learn that looking to and preparing for the future will help us in getting there. As we move into adulthood and start developing our careers, though, career planning continues to be a vital tool.
A career goes beyond just being your job. A career is your overall plan for where you want to be spending a good portion of your life, not just now but in the future! Moreover, the only way to get there, to reach that elusive life goal, is to be intentional and set forth a career plan.
In a competitive hiring market job descriptions need to be thought of like advertising. Learn how to avoid common mistakes and have your recruitment stand out from the crowd.

Networking, negotiating, communicating, leading, career planning -- all skills critical to your career success. Mark Hershberg joins host Denise Griffitts to help you master these vital skills yielding outsized returns for your career.
We often complain about the fact that there’s so much that “they” don’t teach us in school that we need not just for our careers, but for life. Turns out that instead of just adding one more voice to that chorus, someone decided to address those challenges by writing a book.
In this episode, Jennie and Mark discuss: 1) Attributes of a successful business, 2) Workplace skills that we were never taught, 3) Interpersonal skills, communication tips, mental models, negotiating, and networking, 4) Recognizing ethical challenges in the workplace.
Drawing on nearly twenty years of teaching at MIT’s “career success accelerator” program and a career spanning half a dozen industries, Mark distills the key skills for a twenty-first-century career.
Career exploration doesn’t come with a how to manual, or a step-by-step process it’s the diversity of opportunities which leads to the great adventure of discovery. However, Mark Herschberg wants to do his best to point you in the best direction possible.
You've mastered the functional skills for your job, but you also know there's more needed to be successful. No matter your role, there are universal job skills that will help you succeed and advance in your career...
