Trends in Staffing | No BS Hiring Advice


In this video, I refer to an article written by Dr. John Sullivan about the top trend in recruiting for the coming year.

Summary

This is a video that I'm doing calling attention to an article by Dr. John Sullivan on eremedia.com or you may also find it on ere.net where he talks about the number one trend toward going into recruiting for the new year. He goes through a variety of them, but this is the number one trend he believes is going to be important for a company. I think it's valid. It's a shift toward database decision making in recruiting.
Why? Because, lately, in recruiting, he says everyone's gotten good at collecting metrics. Unfortunately, after collecting them, no one ever does anything with them. Here's his best practices for creating a database decision model.
He says data is going to reveal which sources provide and produce quality applicants and hires and will also reveal which types of interviews and interview questions best identify future top performance.
In a previous trend, he recognizes that the cost of a bad hire is extraordinary. DUH! Like you know all recruiting firms have spoken about this for years but no one pays attention to us and hopefully you'll notice this trend and not take a "penny wise, pound foolish" and start to measure where your top people are coming from.
It can can also show you whether your references are an accurate predictor of future performances because, these days, half of new hires are coming from employee referrals. It can also show you your new hire failure rate which can also average as high as 46%. It reveals which recruiters and hiring managers routinely produce the highest quality hires and which do not. It also reveals which single factor has the highest impact on hiring success.
For example, he offers the relationship with the hiring manager. Data can be useful but it's also an examination of the past and it doesn't take into consideration the future. They're going to be new factors and new avenues for exploration for where you find retail and right now it's heavily referral oriented great saves you money. It's also like getting a testimonial from someone who works at your firm as to the quality of this individual. That's terrific but in the future, there may be new ways you have to be open to them as well. It started measuring the success of these techniques and not just simply the old ones.

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter he answers a question about what she should do while working in a bad environment.

Summary

I received a letter today from someone who sounded very down. It's also by thanking me for doing videos that she's fine, so very helpful. She continues on to comment that I said that when you look for a job, a person needs to know what you are looking for in a company. Then, she talks about her current circumstances that she finds very frustrating. It is an office where in order to get anything done. You have to move large boxes and she is afraid of hurting her back. There is. Also, an office environment that feels very clicky to her. She's being asked to contribute to the Christmas present for her boss. But this is a guy who gave a present to someone in her cubicle on their birthday, but not her. She is feeling burned out at this point. Clearly, she is looking for advice from me. "I'm trying to hold out but it is difficult. I need encouragement. I need some positive words of support. "

Here's what I told her – – the 1st order of business was thanking her for trusting me. Sometimes people find it difficult to know what they are looking for. Thus, it is sometimes easier to know what you are NOT looking for. Then flip it over to the other side and then explore some of the places between the 2 extremes.

For example, you know what you don't like about your current employer. Now bear the exact opposite (a place where people respect you and like you where you are part of the in group or there are no in groups. A place that is neat that is well organized where you are not someone who is being taken advantage of. Where you you are treated in a considerate way by your boss. I can go on and on with other attributes, but it would start off with that. Understand what you don't want to do and then explore the other side.

Then, in terms of encouragement,(1) . Sometimes you have to let the past be the past and start moving toward the future.(2) you contributed to these circumstances. I know this is sometimes hard for people to understand, but it's possible that you cause conditions that caused management and your coworkers to isolate you, not let you win or, secondly, in some way cause folks to not want to bring you into the clique. She has a part in why she is isolated.

(3) before speaking to anyone, focus away from the past and start working toward the future, which is elsewhere.

When all is said and done, you can beat yourself up and get depressed and worried about what your past is. However, what is far more valuable, what is far more helpful is to remember that you can go somewhere else where you will be treated differently. That's ultimately when everyone needs to do.

Hedge Fund Brainteasers: What’s The Next Number in This Sequence? | JobSearchTV.com


Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter offers one of those fun interview brainteasers that companies use on interviews.

Summary

I've got one of those fun, tough interview questions for you. I'm going to read it off the screen. You'll understand why in a moment.
What's the next number in this sequence? 10, 9, 60, 90, 70, 66.
So, what's the next number in that sequence? I'm going to repeat it again. 10, 9, 60, 90, 70, 66
The answer, the question comes from not the numbers but the number of letters for each number.
So, 10 has three letters nine has 4, 60 has 5, 90 has 6, 70 has 7, 66 has eight. So your next answer could be (I'll give you two possibilities) 96 is one but, if you want to have some fun and really end the game right there, you can use googol. Google misspelled it when they started the firm, but you answer it with either 96 which has the next number of letters or googol.

Pay Attention | JobSearchTV.com


In this video, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter tells a story about a job hunter with great experience could not find work and why.

Summary

You know, as someone who did headhunting, one of the things I've paid attention to is why is it that some people with great backgrounds, find it so difficult to find positions. I got my answer some years ago when someone sent me, a friend of theirs who was really struggling to find a position. I actually knew of the guy; a fellow with a master's degree, a lot of good experience, experience, running large projects, and very talented individual with a good track record of success. He needed to find a position for reasons that are not important.
So, I invited him to my office and we sat down and talked and, you know, I asked him a couple of basic questions and within three minutes, I knew my answer as to what the problem was.
The problem with many job hunters they think they know what the question really is. They answer what they think the question really is, instead of what the question actually is. And they do that because they've been interviewed so many times at it seems so predictable to them. they're bored.
Now, I don't know how it is for you, but when I go to a show, I expect that the cast is going to put on this greater performance on my night as they did on opening night when there's all the excitement and all the investors are in the theater and it's just a spectacular night for everyone. I want them to put on just as good a performance as opening night.
For job hunters, that means you listen to the question. You answer the question. If you're not sure of what they're really looking for, you ask them. Before you start answering saying, "you know, are you looking for such and such. I just want to make sure I answer your actual question." You don't think you know what they're asking. You test it just to make sure. You listen.
It's another thing this guy was doing. The simplest way I can put it is people sometimes drone on and on and on. Eventually, I interrupt them and say, "Do you remember what my question was?" Most of the time, they don't, because they just got on a roll. They start answering things that they think were asked and it kind of leads from the beginning of their answer and they go on. It's torture!
So I want to encourage you. Pay attention. Listen to what the question is. Answer it. If you if you're not sure of what's being asked, ask them. "Is this what you're looking for?" For me, I just want to make sure I cover your point.
Try to keep your answers to 35 to 40 seconds in length. Beyond that people start to tune you out and start thinking about anything else other than you.
So again 35 to 40 seconds in length because otherwise they mentally channel surf.

Clues That It’s Time to Change Jobs | JobSearchTV.com


Here are a few signals that you can read that tell you it’s time to change jobs.

Summary

This is a video about knowing when it's time to go. I'll simply say that a lot of this . . . I wish I had a turban on and this was a crystal ball . . . Oooooo. I could be looking into the crystal ball . . . Because, I've said many times the person who gets ahead isn't always the smartest or work the hardest (although those are great qualities to have). People get ahead by being alert to opportunity. Sometimes, those are internal to an organization; more often than not, they're external.
Now, one of the ways people do well professionally is by avoiding a professional disaster and being alert to signals. They can read tea leaves. That's what this was all about; you know, looking into the crystal ball or got a cup and use a tea bag, but yeah, you get the idea. So here's a couple of things that can help you recognize when you might be in jeopardy.
The first one is you suddenly report to someone different. If you're a senior professional, the reporting structures change and you're now reporting a rung or two down from where you were reporting. If you're on staff, you're suddenly re-assigned without even the pep talk about this being a great opportunity. Yeah, they really don't care about you. It's time to go.
Maybe, you recognize that you've gone as high as you can within the organization. You see your manager as someone who's around your age and is content with their job. When you ask yourself the question, "Where can I really go from here?" You know, your answer suggests improving your skills, rather than your job function because you're stuck behind this person. Maybe your firm is up for sale or recently sold.
I was talking with someone. Not too long ago, his firm was sold to a European concern. He recognized that what he has been asked to do was transition their computer systems and migrate them into formats that were familiar to the new employer. He understood that, at best, he would be asked to maintain them, but, certainly, there was no need for him once the the conversion was complete.
Another thing that you can do is look around and basically say there's nothing new going on around here. I'm doing the same thing I was three years ago. I'm just maintaining an existing function. Nothing new.
Or maybe you find your boss is a jerk or the industry that you're working in is on its deathbed. These are all clues it's time to move on.
So often, because people are kind of stuck in either the comfort of doing what they're doing or their concerns concerned about, "Can I really find a new position?" They wait until it's too late, and, thus, you know, put themselves in the position of being behind the professional 8-ball in the job search. It takes way longer. Without income, much longer. Because if you take action before they hand you the pink slip, yeah, you've built up some momentum already. . . And then you're out the door. And maybe you're close to another offer already.
So, don't wait until you are invited into that conference room with HR is and your manager and his or her manager and they slide that piece of paper in front of you to sign indicating that you understand that these are the circumstances of you termination.
Read the tea leaves. The proactive. Don't act fearfully because, at the end of the day, your fear is the very thing that's going to cost you dearly

Applying for a Job From Your Phone? | JobSearchRadio.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/03/20/applying-for-a-job-from-your-phone/

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter explains the best way to apply for a job from your phone.

Summary

A lot of websites allow you to use LinkedIn or a profile from all from indeed or from another site in order to apply for a position. Not the best way to do it. Why? Because at the end of the day, your resume needs to be customized and I have seen enough LinkedIn profiles submitted to me that I know most of them don't do a good enough job of selling the person's credentials.

Here's what you do instead.

Set up a dropbox account, set up a Google drive account. When it comes time to apply, submit your resume from dropbox or Google drive. Send them a link to either one. Other way will work fine. Don't just send the profile.

As I said on another video, the easiest way to do something often isn't the best way for you or for them. Don't waste your time by sending an inadequate document to them.

Your Networking Methodology | JobSearchRadio.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/03/24/your-networking-methodology/

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses the overarching technique he must employ when networking.​

Summary

I get tons of connection requests on LinkedIn and never hear from that person again. Yes, they are connected with my network and they are connected with me. But what if you actually done to network? How have you tried to build a relationship with someone like me in order to gain my trust, provide a referral or that sort of thing?

Unmotivated because I'm in sales so I'm trying to help people find work. If you not trying to connect with me beyond sending me a connection request, what are you really doing to network? It's not about your numbers. It's what you do with your numbers to develop the trusting relationship that makes sense.

I was doing a podcast recently with Ray Gooch who hosts another show. In the course of the podcast, I said something the effect of, "Networking is a full contact sport. It's about the relationship that you build in the course of being connected with someone that helps you and them.

Let me use an anecdote from 1 of Ray's shows. There was someone he had on who made a career change into healthcare IT. They start the network with someone at Ohio State, took a couple of years learning about someone things that she thought worked well, develop a personal relationship. It took about 3 years when a position opened up so she reached out to him and he starting the job at Ohio State.

The long the short of it is you need to start working and thinking about the relationship, not the numbers as being important. You need to think in terms of connecting with people so that they can learn about you and trust you, not what you get from them.

Remember, networking is a full contact sport. It is not about your numbers. It is about your relationship with people. Build your relationships.

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter encourages executives to get offline but and get out of the house.

Summary

I want to talk to you as an executive who's trying to find work and what you need to do while you are looking for work.

You run a line of business you have been an important player in your organization. Now, you are channel surfing. You are watching Netflix. You are waiting for the phone to ring. You know you're supposed to be out there networking. But, the fact of the matter is, a degree of lethargy has said it because you're just not as busy as you once were.

Get busy.

What I find is, like the old saying from "The Shawshank Redemption," "Get busy living or get busy dying." You gotta get out there and make things happen.

Yes, that involves networking, but you're not in a network 8, 9, 10 hours a day. You know that already. Yes, you can go to the gym but how long are you going to work out? Do they get on the treadmill. You're going to walk or jog for a period of time. You're going to lift some weights. You will be out in an hour. Maybe you do a sweat and/or steam afterwards, then maybe it is 2 hours.

What are you going to do the rest of the time? Answer. Find the contract for yourself. Volunteer for an organization. Do something that floats your boat.

Find something that gives you some excitement and some joy. Here's why say that.

If you let the lethargy take hold, what ultimately happens is that is that you interview in a lethargic way. If you've got some joy going on in your life, if you're having some fun on a contract, if you're having some fun doing some volunteer work, lo and behold you perform that much better.

It is so important for you to stay active, rather than sitting around on a meditation cushion for 4 hours a day developing your practice. Don't get me wrong. I like meditating, too, and I do it regularly. But you know what I'm talking about. You have to be ready to perform for an interview.

You don't have to be high-octane workaholic Joe or Jane. What you need to be is "on." Doing something while you're looking for work will go a long way toward helping you
