Reality TV Producer to Speak at UNO About Job Market
Omaha - Reality TV producer Mark Allen, a University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) graduate, will speak at UNO Tuesday, March 24, about the difficult economy and its impact on the job market all students will face upon graduation.
Allen’s speech is free and open to the public, and will be held in the Chancellor’s Room on the second floor of the Milo Bail Student Center from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
While the economy remains volatile and jobs can be hard to come by, Allen, a producer for reality TV shows such as “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette,” “Supernanny” and “A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila,” is positive there is hope for students entering the job market.
"I want students to realize it's not all gloom and doom out there. They have the chance to create their own destiny, regardless of what economic experts might say," Allen said. "It's important they know how to stay ahead of the game, easy ways to go after what they want, and how to get a job -- even when it seems everyone else wants the same one."
Allen graduated from UNO in 1987 with a degree in journalism. In 2007, Allen received the School of Communication Alumni Achievement Award for his numerous accomplishments and his continued dedication to mentoring UNO students through classroom visits each semester.
