Shalom Klein must have the largest hat rack in all of Skokie considering how many hats he wears in his day-to-day life.
Just when you think he could not possibly fit another one, Klein takes advantage of a new opportunity that he says was too meaningful to pass up.
Not long ago, the Economic Development Commission chairman, Dempster Street Merchants Association co-founder, student, Jewish B2B Networking chairman, jobs adviser and vice-president of Moshe Klein & Associates Ltd. in Skokie added another unlikely role to his arsenal: radio host.
What was not unlikely, though, is that just over a year later, “Get Down To Business With Shalom Klein” on radio’s AM 560 (WIND) seems a big success.
“This was another real opportunity to make a difference with small businesses and to help people looking for employment,” Klein says. “The radio show has extended my reach to people that I otherwise would not have been able to meet and people I otherwise would not be talking to.”
Look more closely at many of those hats Klein wears and they are made of the same thread. Only in his mid-20s, Klein wants to boost small businesses and to help people looking for jobs, to put into practice the advantages of networking, to match small business owners with ideal job seekers.
