A Brazen Chat with Penelope Trunk

Passion. Moxie. Gumption. That's what brazen careerists are made of, according to Penelope Trunk.

She's living proof of her own philosophy. How else could she go from playing professional volleyball; to working at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange; to writing Brazen Careerist: The New Rules for Success, her blog, and career columns for The Boston Globe and Yahoo Finance?

Of course, regular Recruiter readers might already know this, since we've discussed Penelope's articles in the past. But we upped the ante last week when we hosted Penelope via podcast, and got her fun, practical, unfiltered take on all things career.

Listen here to catch Penelope discussing unorthodox career development, best hiring practices for Gen Y candidates, and her newly minted “braided career” concept. Or download the chat for later, or pass along to friends.

In any event, carve out 30 minutes for this expert voice. You won't regret it.

Sigh. Imagine a world in which every employee followed her advice. Nothing would ever get done.

Please do not praise this individual.
