Audio interviews with Ulla de Stricker & Jill Hurst-Wahl on defining and creating your success

Dennie Heye in the Netherlands interviewed myself and Ulla de Stricker about our book, The Information and Knowledge Professionals Career Handbook: Define and Create Your Success, for the SLA Europe Chapter. Dennie asked use about the book in general, then narrowed in on a couple of specific chapters.  Our interviews are indeed different, so feel free to listen to them both.

Updated 7/1/2011: The podcasting service that the Europe Chapter was using ceased to exist very suddenly.  Thankfully Dennie was able to find a new home for the podcasts. In order to hear the audio, please follow the links below which will take you to the SLA Europe blog and the audio's new home.

Interview with Jill (20 min.) - Jill talks about the valuable concept of social capital and the importance of using business cases to sell our ideas to management and stakeholders.

Interview with Ulla (~15 min.) - Ulla explains how the book is a collection of many years of experience, the myths around writing a good resume, why you need a professional tag line and why passion alone does not sell an idea.
