Working at WCBS is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. I have loved radio since the day my parents got me a seven band radio when I was very young. I was a play-by-play sports broadcaster in high school and college, but after graduating from Franklin & Marshall College and Emory Law School, I opted for a career as a corporate attorney.
I later founded my own staffing agency for lawyers, my own job board for jobseekers over 40 and my own recruiting firm, before becoming head of HR and general counsel for a leading toy manufacturer. In 2009 I was fortunate to have an opportunity to combine my experience in the labor market with my passion for radio broadcasting.
I have been the host of CBS radio’s “Your Next Job” since May, 2009. I love reporting on the job market because it fills a huge void for many people. Many workers have great skills at their job, but they don’t know as much about job search. We are often taught how to do a great job but not how to get a great job. In this market, you need both to succeed.
I also enjoy speaking to groups of jobseekers and consulting with employers about their staffing needs. I welcome questions and comments from listeners and jobseekers. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or @SGreenbergCBS
Random Facts about Steven:
First Job: Vendor at Madison Square Garden (circus lights are not a big seller; popcorn is amazing)
Second Job: Broadcaster, ‘Sportsphone’ (don’t ask, but it was very popular at the time)
Third Job: Attorney in big corporate law firm (much less exciting than first two jobs!)”
