Marc Miller has been recognized for having one of the top career blogs, top career sites, and top career podcasts in the U.S. by organizations including Forbes, Twitter, and Career Sherpa. He was named one of PBS’s NextAvenue.org Influencers in Aging. Repurpose Your Career has been named one of the Best Career Development Books of All Time by Book Authority.
Marc’s own career journey included 22 years at IBM, several thriving tech startups, painful stints as a high school teacher and as a fundraiser for the Jewish Community Association of Austin, and a near-fatal bicycle accident that changed his perspective forever.
Thirty years in the career desert taught him that most people build their careers without understanding what they actually need to be satisfied and fulfilled. They pursue money, status, a skill set, but find the happiness it brings them to be fleeting. They invest years of time and energy only to wind up feeling frustrated and trapped. Others have figured out what they need, but don’t know how to chart a course to get there.
Marc found himself drawing on his own experiences to counsel friends and associates on their career journeys and realized he’d found his vocation. An active member of the Launchpad Job Club, he would use his extensive training experience to help others find careers that they could grow into for the decades that lie ahead, with all their promise of change.
Marc is passionate about his work and the clients he serves. He has taught in more than 35 countries and helped clients from many industries.
Marc and his wife now live in Ajijic Mexico where they can live a simpler and less expensive lifestyle but continue to support those in the 2nd half of life grow and thrive.
