Navigating the Path to a New Job

South Carolina Business Review logo

There have, of course, been many effects from the pandemic, but a very common one has been job insecurity itself, that has resulted in many people changing jobs, sometimes into entirely new careers.  Our next guest says this has also led to job search insecurity-trying to successfully navigate that path to a new job.

Mike Switzer interviews Jane Snipes, managing partner and owner of Northstar Recruiting in Florence, SC and author of the book: Surviving the Job Search.

  

  

  

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
