Mark Beal - Before co-authoring Career In Transition: 101 Lessons To Achieve Job Search Success, Mark Beal served as a brand marketer for nearly 30 years, developing and executing marketing and public relations campaigns for category leading companies and brands. During that time, he created campaigns around such major sports and entertainment platforms as the Olympic Games, Super Bowl, World Series, US Open Tennis and The Rolling Stones. Mark experienced his own career transition when he was invited to be an adjunct professor in the School of Communication and Information at Rutgers University in 2013. Mark has since been appointed as a full-time Assistant Professor of Practice in Public Relations. It was Mark’s students who inspired him to write his first book, 101 Lessons They Never Taught You In College, which was published in 2017. 101 Lessons They Never Taught You In College led to Mark being invited by career support networking groups in New Jersey and Pennsylvania to speak to individuals who were experiencing a career transition. It was these individuals who inspired Mark to co-author this book with Frank Kovacs.
Mark collaborates daily with Gen Z students which also led to him authoring Decoding Gen Z: 101 Lessons Gen Z Will Teach Corporate America, Marketers & Media, which has captured the attention of media, marketers and employers nationwide as the oldest Gen Zers join the workforce and the entire Gen Z cohort becomes the primary focus of corporations and brands.
