Maureen Anderson is the host of The Career Clinic radio show and the author of The Career Clinic: Eight Simple Rules for Finding Work You Love. A civil engineering graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Maureen held a variety of positions in management and sales before getting into radio. She attributes her successful career change to the training she did with Richard Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute? You can learn more on Dick’s web site.
Maureen is a public speaker, who inspires people to take a more active role in writing the story of their lives. She wants to help you have fun--especially at work, where any improvements are bound to help the rest of life run more smoothly. You wouldn't pull a young child aside, excited about a play date or the first day of preschool, to say, "Whatever you do, kid, don't get your hopes up." Yet at some point as children grow up, that's a common refrain: "Don't get your hopes up." As if lowering your expectations for how much fun you can have--at work, for example--is the secret to life. Maureen believes the opposite is true. Get your hopes up and don't settle for less than the life you were born to live.
Maureen gives talks about finding your dream job, silencing your inner critic, and acing your job interview. Please get in touch with her by

At The Career Clinic, we think it's important for students to get their hopes up when deciding what to do in work and in life. That's why we're eager to partner with high schools and colleges to inspire young people to pursue their dream careers. Maureen's presentations are perfect for students--whether at freshman orientation, career fairs, or workshops and other venues.
