Mehler on Mehler
I've been getting his misdirected phone calls and e-mails for years, which is not surprising, since we're both New York-area writers who share the same first and last names.Ive been getting his misdirected phone calls and e-mails for years, which is not surprising, since were both New York-area writers who share the same first and last names. While I work full time at Sm@rt Partner, the other Mark Mehler wears multiple professional hats. Hes a lecturer, university teacher and consultant to Fortune 1000 companies on their Internet recruiting strategies. His book, CareerXroads, is a seminal guide to job hunting in the New Economy. I figured this story on surviving career failure was a good excuse for finally making his acquaintance. After some preliminary, personal chitchathis familys from Brooklyn and mines from the Bronxthe other Mehler offered some thoughts on learning from failure.
Like every HR expert, he sees the long-term job outlook as remarkably sunny for IT professionals.
