UNEMPLOYED SAN FRANCISCO EXECUTIVE BRUCE QUARTON WILL APPEAR ON 'LIVE WITH REGIS & KATHIE LEE,' FEB. 24-28, AS PART OF ITS 'WORK WANTED WEEK'
 'Live' Airs on KRON-TV Channel 4 at 9 a.m. Weekdays
 NEW YORK, Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Bruce Quarton, an unemployed San Francisco executive, is being flown to New York to appear on the daytime show, "Live with Regis & Kathie Lee," as part of its "Work Wanted Week" (next Monday-Friday, Feb. 24-28).
 Quarton is one of four struggling job hunters who will participate in "Live's" week-long look at successful strategies for re-entering the job market. The other guests -- also unemployed -- are an auto worker from St. Louis, an executive secretary from Washington D.C. and a recent college graduate from Boston.
 Human resources authority, Tom Jackson, the author of such books as "Guerrilla Tactics in the Job Market" and "The Hidden Job Market," will guide "Live's" four job seekers and its unemployed viewers through a week of invaluable insider tips:
 -- Monday, Feb. 24: "Learning the New Rules of the Game;"
 -- Tuesday, Feb. 25: "Targeting the Right Job for You;"
 -- Wednesday, Feb. 26: "Finding Hidden Job Contacts;"
 -- Thursday, Feb. 27: "Writing the Perfect Resume;" and,
 -- Friday, Feb. 28: "Mastering that Nerve-racking Interview."
 Quarton, a 46-year-old with a master's of business administration degree from Stanford, is typical of many executives who easily scaled the career ladder in the 1970s and 1980s, never dreaming that one day they would fall off entirely.
 With 20-plus years of broad-based management experience in the high-tech manufacturing, construction, bioscience and retailing industries -- with responsibilities for operations, finance and marketing -- it is truly a sign of the times that Quarton has not been able to find a job during the last year, despite his hundred or more contacts and willingness to relocate.
 Quarton and his wife, who holds a Ph.D. in marketing and once had a well-paying job in her field, both quit their careers in the early 1980s to open their own retail photofinishing business. They certainly had the marketing knowledge to make it work. But with the recession came a consumer reluctance to spend money on such extras and the Quartons were forced to close their store a year ago February. By that time, however, they were so deeply in debt that they had to sell their Oakland home, move to a Piedmont apartment and empty out their IRA's. Quarton's wife was the luckier of the two -- she found a job working as a librarian at $250 a week.
 Tune into "Live" each day next week for the crucial tips that can make a difference in finding a job in today's recessionary economy.
