The first time I appeared on the WGN Morning News, I was asked to talk about new careers that most people do not know exist. Here is a summary of the new careers.
Sustainability Expert – Consults with companies to integrate sustainable practices into all parts of their business.
Chief Listening Officer – Analyzes social media posting all over the web to determine what people are talking about and how their employer should design promotions around what their current and future customers want.
Healthcare Liaison – Partnered with a patient by the hospital, or hired by a family, to make sure that healthcare, or eldercare, is optimized for the patient. Families also hire a Healthcare Liaison to make sure their family member is happy, safe, and secure in their assisted living center or in their home.
Talent Management Coordinator – Works for companies in employee retention, mediating between employees and supervisors to make sure employees are performing fulfilling work and do not want to leave the company.
Natural or Green Funeral Planner/Director – Use special training, materials, and procedures to assure that all portions of the funeral process are environmentally friendly.
