Today on Talk Credit Radio: Friday, June 10, 2011

Is the economy forcing you to rethink your career? Do you have questions about how to start over? Today on Talk Credit Radio, get answers, and get inspired as Kerry Hannon, the author of What’s Next: Follow Your Passion and Find Your Dream Job, U.S. News & World Report contributing editor, and author of a popular SecondAct.com column, shares her insights from the many in-depth interviews she’s done with people who have made often dramatic career changes. She’ll let us in on her strategies, including the best fields for starting over, tips for making the transition to the non-profit world or social entrepreneurship (if you choose), and how to find a new career that you can be passionate about.

Also on Talk Credit Radio, Credit.com’s Christopher Maag shares what he learned about overseas debt collectors who are chasing consumers for fake debts. He’ll describe what happened when he tried calling one of these crooks for an interview, and was badgered for a debt he didn’t owe!

Finally, host Gerri Detweiler answers your credit questions and shares her insight into prepaid cards—why they are hot, and when they are not so hot.
