A message from Executive Director Julie Hoff
It is both humbling and inspiring that so many job seekers are willing to share their powerful stories with our community. We share those stories on our blog, our Facebook page, and live and in-person at our Steps to Success luncheon. The May 13 Steps to Success Luncheon will showcase the real progress that Daily Work's job seekers are making towards accomplishing their career and life goals. We will also share how each job seeker's gains create positive outcomes for their families and local communities, too. We hope you will join us to hear first-hand the life-changing impact of your contributions.
This year's luncheon will feature well-known author and economics commentator Chris Farrell as emcee. Chris is senior economics contributor at Marketplace, American Public Media's nationally syndicated public radio business and economic programs. He is economics commentator for Minnesota Public Radio. An award winning journalist, Chris is a columnist for Bloomberg Businessweek, Next Avenue and the Star Tribune. He has written for a number of other media outlets. The author of four books, his latest is Unretirement: How Baby Boomers are Changing the Way We Think About Work, Community and the Good Life.
