Hi I’m Brian Hirth the founder and host of CareerTalkPro.com, and my own professional career journey has been anything but traditional. I have held over 27 different jobs and counting in many industries, lived in 14 different states throughout the United States, including Alaska, and combined a professional career, military career, and all the while continued my formal education… my professional journey continues now with CareerTalkPro.com
Professionally my career spans over 25 years of experience in engineering, electronics, and technical management for many of the top companies and government agencies across the United States, in addition to having served over 11 years in the Army National Guard as both an officer and enlisted soldier. Back in 2007, I transitioned exclusively to providing independent engineering consulting and technical subject matter expertise for numinous Fortune 500 Companies and the U.S. Pentagon.
My university education includes a Bachelor’s of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology from the Oregon Institute of Technology, and a Masters’ in Business Administration in Technology Management from the University of Phoenix Campuses in San Jose California and Wichita Kansas. In addition to numerous post-graduate continuing education courses taken in engineering, management, and business.
The Go-To Guy
Over the years, I began to notice how often I became the go-to guy about questions relating to career development and career advancement, resume writing, interview skills and negotiation strategies. Unknowingly, through my own career trials and successes I had become an unrealized expert in the practical art of professional career development.
My Transition to Career Coaching
In 2010, I began to offer career coaching services to many new college graduates, young professionals, and highly experienced career professionals throughout the United States and abroad, all by referral. I was thrilled to discover this new skill within, yet realized coaching could only helped one person at a time. Searching for ways to teach my knowledge, I started creating career focused educational products to help a broader group of career minded professionals. Live workshops, online videos, workbooks, audio CDs, books and ebooks…
Through all my interactions with career coaching, and creating career educational courses… I had a brilliant moment of clarity. Audio! – Audio was the preferred format my audience wanted. It is the information and career insights they wanted to absorb during their daily commutes, a lunchtime walk, or sitting at their desk pretending to work while career advancement strategies pumped through their earbuds.
Even though, with all the career strategies and techniques I had learned over the decades, I still knew there was no substitute for learning directly from successful career professionals with inside and direct knowledge of their own industries. The Career Talk Pro Podcast was born.
