You can start early when making a career change. In this video, I explain a simple good strategy for beginning the transition.

Summary

I want to talk to those of you who are considering a career change, a transition, a pivot, however you want to think of it, you're trying to move from one profession to another and considering how to do it, thinking that it's overwhelming, and, frankly, it is a large undertaking.
One of the ways to do this is to begin the process of seeing or having other people see you as the expert in the new field. Now, "What do I know," you may be thinking to yourself about my new field. "You know, I'm a beginner there. I haven't been doing anything along those lines."
You're absolutely right. You may have been taking courses; you may have an interest; you may be doing things to aspire to the new profession but you're not an expert, certainly in the eyes of the marketplace. You're definitely not an expert but what you can start doing is learning. In learning, you can e starting to brand yourself for the new profession.
Now, doing this transition, of course involves risk. After all, you're leaving your old life behind, your old professional behind and moving to something else. As you already know, through social media, one of the ways that we start to trust people and believe in people is getting to know, like, trust and respect their ideas that we discover on our own through their websites, social media presence and such.
One of the things you can do is starting to create that presence by (number one)sharing things that you think makes sense. That's really the starting place0150 0150 learning about your new career, sharing articles, videos, ideas that you have, and maybe a one or two sentence comment about it.
Start there. You want to be progressing soon and not relying upon this. Progressing soon to the idea of writing your own things, doing videos about the subject.
"Oh my God! I will be on video!" Yes, you learn to be on video. The camera's available on your computer or iPad or whatever device you use and you start sharing it and posting it to YouTube. You put it on LinkedIn. You put it on medium. You start to get known as an expert. Take an hour a week. In other words, less than 10 minutes a day to start thinking of and writing your article. Thinking of and doing your video.
The first ones are not going to be great. You know that However, with time, you will get better and although no one will initially discover you because you may not have a significant following, with time they will. Recruiters will start to reach out to you for the new professional and for the new interest that you have because they're looking to discover people.
So, as you start to feel more confident, you start changing your LinkedIn profile. You start positioning yourself there, and with what you create and share as being the expert in the new field. You'll discover that, with time (and that's the key here. With time) you'll be branded in the new way and leave the old one behind.
Again, what you create in the way of content should relate to the new field, not the old world. And, in that transition, begin positioning yourself as the expert because with time you really will be.

Job growth slowing in Silicon Valley

Originally Published on MercuryNews.com

Employment grew by 2.2 percent in 2018 over prior year

SAN JOSE — The job market in Silicon Valley grew by 2.2 percent during 2018, the slowest  pace of employment growth since the Great Recession ended a decade ago, according to a new report released Wednesday.

The employment gains in 2018 also marked a noticeable downshift from the pace of growth in 2017, when Silicon Valley’s job market grew by 3 percent, the report from Joint Venture Silicon Valley said.

The ongoing job gains, year after year, have persisted in the face of headwinds from skyrocketing home prices and brutal commutes. The steady job growth is remarkable, according to Russell Hancock, president of Joint Venture Silicon Valley.

http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/01/04/job-search-radio-bah-bah-sheeple-where-do-you-roam-youre-hurting-yourself/

So many of you run your job search like a bunch of sheeple. What do I mean?

Summary

For now, the economy is decent; there are cities with our great employment opportunities, and others word is a lot harder. Regardless, whether you are in a city with a lot of advantages that is higher in droves or not, there are things that you can learn to allow you to command more money when it comes down to the are making you an offer.

You see, sometimes employers make lukewarm offers because you haven't really sold them well enough. Sometimes, it is just because they have a budget that limits them. The budget is for less money than what you are looking for and they throw a, "Hail Mary" at you. Then, it's up to you to say, "No, let's negotiate. I'm not prepared to accept $10-$20,000 less than what I'm looking for. Let's talk about what we each need to do to reach a successful conclusion."

Most of the time, people simply act irrationally, immaturely and without perspective. I'm not trying to be chopped except to point out what is obvious. If you talk to recruiters all over the world, corporate or agency recruiters, they will tell you in all honesty, how badly people interview, how badly they run their job search, and that they need help. It is up to you to act and get help.

I saw a piece the other day that asked, "Should I talk to a recruiter or a career coach?" Recruiters are there for one purpose – – to fill jobs with their clients and then get paid. If you think you're going to get impartial advice from a recruiter, you're wrong. They'll help you get the interview, they will help you get the job WITH THEIR CLIENT, but they are not there to help you get a job, except with their client.

JobSearchCoacahingHQ.com will help you no matter who the client is and you'll get great advice from me. One on one advice that deals with your situation. Check out the site. There is a time there that can help you. All my books and guys the job hunting… Videos… Podcasts… Articles that I have written... All there for one low price.

What Can I Do To Get More Job Offers? | JobSearchTV.com


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

There are lots of things to do that I lay out in this video.

Summary

The question I received from someone is, "What can I do to get more job offers?" I've got a great answer for this person; I know they're not going to like it because, like most people that are looking for a simple answer, I wish it was simple and it isn't. But before I go into that, I'll just simply say, if you'd like to connect with me on LinkedIn, send a connection request to me at linkedin.com/in/TheBigGameHunter. Mention that you saw this, I'd love to know that been out there helping someone and it had an effect. Also, if you're interested in my coaching, you visit TheBigGameHunter.us There's information there where you can find out how I can be hired by you to help you with your search, not as a recruiter. I stopped doing recruiting a while ago. I now coach people. See the hat?
So, what can I do to get more job offers? Well, let's start off with skills competence.
You are masterful at what you do. But you've probably already figured out that that's probably not enough and, depending upon your level of experience, there's slightly different answers.
For example, if you're more experienced, you have more opportunity to brand yourself over the course of a career. You have more opportunity to build your professional network and support it and have it support you as part of your search. That's just a matter of time and effort which, if you're a junior person, you just haven't had yet but these have to be part of your repertoire.
What do I mean by branding? Creating reputation for yourself in your market area of expertise, in your geographic area or wherever it is you believe you want to be known for. Network? Relationships. You build relationships where people get to know, like, trust and respect you for your expertise and see you as a subject matter expert in it. That doesn't happen overnight, quite obviously.
In addition, how do you get more job offers? Become masterful at the job search process. So, what goes into a job search? There are many things.
A great LinkedIn profile allows people to be drawn to you because of a skill that you have that shows up in their search. A good resume, if you're aggressively looking. Being effective with interviewing, which means practicing how to interview before you actually go out on the interview. I don't mean a day before. I mean, it's something that becomes part of your routine where you review questions that you might be asked on interviews.
You become good at negotiating. You develop relationships with recruiters, because recruiters often are a gateway to certain organizations. I don't want you to stress that; I think its, frankly, a minimal thing that you should be doing because you draw recruiters to you with your brand and through your network. So you don't need to put in tremendous effort at that. If you are doing the right things, they will come to you like a fly to honey.
Also, negotiating. You learn how to negotiate well and to do it, not just simply at the end of the process but to recognize all the signals along the way where firms are trying to elicit information from me that helps to box you into a price that may be less than what you actually deserve and swap them away like a flea.
So, I'll simply say there are lots of things that you could be doing in order to get more job offers but they require effort on your part. They require practice on your part.
They require learning different skill sets than you probably have developed at this point but if you start now, you'll develop the expertise, not just simply for this search but for every search that you're involved with this boy

Are You an Out of Work Executive or C Level Professional? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com

EP 1377 A simple piece of advice for the unemployed executive or C level professional.

Summary

I wanted to address what to do if you're out of work executive or C level professional to guide you in a way that makes sense in your career.

For a lot of you, you have had success show up for you very easily. I don't want to seem dismissive in any way, shape or form. You've had success and now you are out of work. You have an idea of what to do, but you are better off getting some advice or start working with someone who can work with you to help you accomplish your goals and help you get back to work more quickly.

I'm here to recommend job search coaching; I happen to do that but I'm not going to do a big commercial about myself here.

For you as an executive or C level professional, you need someone to talk with. I represent this in a facetious way. In the mob (you've watched "The Godfather" movies, right), there was always a consigliere. The Boss of Bosses, the Don always made the decisions but he had someone he trusted to bounce ideas off of. That's what you need to do.

Even though you may have higher thousands of people before, even though you may have run organizations, you are now on the other side. You may think you know the process and, even if you do, there is an emotional part of the process that you not well-equipped for.

I'm telling you, get some coaching. Get some support. Hire someone as an ally for you in your search.

I want to be clear that if you think I'm recommending that you contact executive search firms, I assume you have already done that. You know the ones in your field and have developed relationships over the course of time with a number of them. They probably already told you that workout you this last job isn't going to get you your next one.

Coaching is different. A coach is going to help guide you through your search, someone you can speak with other than your wife, husband, partner or dog… You need to talk to someone to sort this out because the emotional part of job search is going to be the hardest for you. You may try to bury its

You may try to bury it. You may try to push it down. It's going to leak out in a number of different ways unless you hire someone to work with you.

If you're interested, contact me at JeffAltman@TheBigGameHunter.us

I just want to tell you get some help so that you're not trying to figure this out by yourself.

What Do Company Recruiters Do If They Find Your Resume on a Job Board? | JobSearchTV.com


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

What do recruiters do when they see someone in their company on a job board? Do they let the management know, or is it implied to keep it confidential?

I answer this from the perspective of both a junior professional and a management professional.

Summary

Someone messaged me a question. It's a common fear that people have. I think the question is a fine one and it's full expression. Let me just read the full question to you. "What do recruiters do when they see someone in their company on a job board? Do they let management know or is implied to keep it confidential?"
Ooooooh! Confidential.
Now, I'll start off by saying what do you think they do? Now, if you think you will be fired instantly, that's probably not going to happen. What is probably going to happen . . . I remember this from an experience I had with a client of mine who had seen one of their senior people on a job board and the first thing that they did was start interviewing for a replacement. Note that one.
They figured out that what they should do is get a head start on finding the replacement for this person and, if they found someone, you know, comparable or better, they would let the person go. Now, for you, you're probably a more junior individual. Your boss may take you in and say, "Look, we saw your resume on a job board," and give you that "come to Jesus moment." That moment where you've been talked to about loyalty
What are your plans? What are you doing? Stuff like that designed to scare you straight and make you stay there or try and resolve the issues that's prompting you to look elsewhere. That's one or the other. From your vantage point, the probability is . . . well, if you're junior, they may give you that talking too. The dumb thing that you can did was that on the job board that they found this, you didn't pay anything to blind your name. In other words, like,, for example, on one board I know you can pay a little bit extra and they'll come up with this lengthy email address and obscure your name and stuff along those lines to hide the fact that it's you. You can't hide the employer because the reality is that's part of the brand that's your association with the firm that you're associated with . . . and it helps to sell you.
But what you can do with many of the job boards is obscure your name so the name is not out there prominently. Some managers are smart and they can figure it out because they know the background but, the reality is, don't make it easy for them.
Don't make it so obvious that you're looking for something else. What you should be doing if you're with job boards is contacting firms yourself rather than waiting for them and posting your resume. Think of it this way.
Your resume is not out there hanging out on a job board. What it's there is for you when you want to aggressively find something else, you're contacting these firms that are advertising and trying to submit your resume for jobs. Your LinkedIn profile is for when you want to be found and, when they're out looking, that's what you're trying to do. So, it needs to be keyword rich and you want to make it attractive to recruiters, both corporate and third party.But back to your original question, the probability is if you are junior, you're going to get a talking to that's like the stern father who's going to be talking to you harshly. If you're a more senior person, they've got a heads up that you're leaving and they're going to s

Tight job market hits small business confidence

Originally Published on Markketplace.org

The monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover survey showed that those job openings are at a record high. Another report — the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index — said small businesses optimism is at the lowest level in months.

Given that a big number of job openings might sound like an economy where business is booming, those two pieces of news might sound contradictory. But talking to the businesses themselves, it’s easy to see how businesses might be pessimistic.

One reason: It’s awfully hard to find workers these days.

“There was one point where I was hiring and set up a full day of interviews — I think I had about 14 to 16 interviews back to back,” said Emmeline Zhao, partner and general manager of Little Tong Noodle Shop in New York. “Only two people showed up.”

Stepping Up from Manager to Leadership | JobSearchRadio.com


Listen to the full episode here:

Stepping up in class requires a change in behavior, not just a job title.

Summary

This video talks about stepping up from manager to leader.  To start off, I can’t go into every detail about what is necessary in order to prepare yourself to play at the higher level.  I’ll simply share our story about someone I coached recently that, I believe reflects that.
In this particular case I been working with the guy who is in IT who works as a manager level and they want to move up to Director.  They see him clearly in the C suite.  What seems to be an issue for him is that too often he is in the weeds.  There is a shift that you have to make mentally in order to be a leader within an organization.

It’s not something as simple as delegation.  It’s about coaching people in order to be effective in their new roles because they are stepping up as well while you remove a lot of the burdens that you’ve taken on for yourself because management has been drilling down on you to manage people to get results. A leader is different.  In effect, a leader is a coach for an organization.  They think like a coach and teach like a coach.  That takes time and effort.

With this person, what I’ve gotten him to see are that there are situations where he could be asking great questions that would cause people to think proactively.  Instead of telling them what to do, he’s asking them what they think should be done, explore different options with them, see if they might make good choices like he might make and work from there.

Coaching is not as simple as what I’m describing here.  Coaching will help you work in situations a bit differently.  I want to encourage you, this is my practice – – leadership coaching to help individuals step up in class and be prepared by demonstrating to management that they can lead and not just simply manage.
If you have questions or would like to talk with me about coaching, reach out to me at JeffAltman@TheBigGameHunter.us
.  In the subject line, put the word, “Coaching.”  I will be happy to get back in touch and talk with you about how I might be able to help.
