EP 1293 How Do I Explain the Gap?

Summary

And the question for today is "I've been sick for a while. I had an aneurysm but out of work for a year. I'm now able to go back to work. What do I do? How do I explain this time? What do I how do to market myself?" Well, I think the simplest thing to do is, number one, people who know you, people who are your friends, former workers, your network of relationships . . . These are people to reach out to. They probably already know and there's no explanation necessary other than, I'm well .Thank goodness. I am well, I want to relaunch my career and it's time for me to get rolling again.."So they're the easiest ones to speak with. However, there are other people in other situations for marketing yourself, and if you'd send the resume with a one-year-old gap in it, it's really easy for firms to go (buzzer noise () ) and disqualify you from consideration. So, you need to be prepared to talk about what your last year of life has been like. I'm not talking about going into details of every operation you've had or every doctor appointment that you've been to. That's irrelevant. All you have to say in your resume is, " I recovered from an illness for the past year. I am now able to return to work. No issues with my health. I'm ready to roll." Words to that effect. And you may need to compromise on your previous salary. What a surprise but it's no one's business what the nature of the illness was. You can talk about it and that's your choice, but if someone says, " what was wrong," you can turn around and say, " you know, I don't know that that's really necessary. I'll just simply say I had a serious illness and almost died. I'm healthy, again. Doctors love my prognosis. They've encouraged me to get back to work. That's what I want to do." So you don't need to go into all the personal stuff. And if they insist upon it, what's the message to you about that. The message to me is they' don't trust you. They may not trust you because you haven't presented it in a convincing way or because they've had previous experience with liars. That happens! After all, there are three jokes in the recruiting business. First one is how do you tell a job applicants is lying to you and the answer is their lips are moving. So don't be surprised if some firm tries to test you there, but just very politely deflect them by saying, "Hey, look, do you want you want to see all my doctor reports ? Do you want to see my medical stuff? I'll get that over here but a chitchat about is, frankly, unnecessary. I was sick for a year. Legitimately, I was sick for a year. I'm healthy now. It's time for me to get back to work. It's really that simple.

EP 1306 How do you treat an interview with a Former boss? Do you do anything different?

Summary

Hi! I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm the head coach for www.jobsearchcoachinghq.com. I was on call with someone. I thought would be interesting to record this. We had a conversation about talking with your former boss. He has an interview scheduled with the former boss that was to hire him for a particular role. He asked me, "How should I prepare for the conversation?"

The short answer to this is that he is a friend and he is considering hiring you. As a result, he is going to evaluate and assess you. Don't think of this is just to friends talking. Think of it is that he has a responsibility to evaluate and assess you. Even though he is giving you a thumbnail about what the conversation is going to be about, you might just follow up by saying, "Hey, it's just so good to hear your voice." Yada yada. You chat for a little bit and then switch the conversation to, "I know you give me an idea of what you are looking for. I want to go into more of a deep dive with you. Would you tell me a little bit more about the position involved in what I can do to help?" That takes it into the realm of the professional where it needs to be.

You may be a leader in an organization, but here, you are still a job hunter. You may be friends with this person, but you are still a job hunter. This is true no matter where you are in the process, whether you're the junior individual and interviewing with someone who you went to college with and dormed with or, as was the case here, you are a leader talking to another veteran leader talking about returning to an organization that you previously left to work as a consultant working at a client.

No matter what, you are always being scrutinized. People are going to measure you for the role AND, in this particular case, there was another subject in that the position involved wasn't really one that he was looking for. This was a fun little twist to the situation. You see, he's really looking for a senior role and here they wanted him to come in at a different level because it is consulting organization. What do you do if a CEO role opens up and the question comes up? You tell them you will help them higher your replacement, make yourself available, introduce them to recruiters who you know and try to make the transition as smooth as possible, diffuse that is a potential issue and try to move on.

I hope you found this helpful. Visit www.jobsearchcoachinghq.com. It's my site where I can answer questions and provide you with great information designed to help you find work more quickly.

Stupid Interview Mistakes Being Somewhere Else | JobSearchRadio.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2018/04/26/stupid-interview-mistakes-being-somewhere-else-jobsearchradio-com/

Here’s another one of those stupid interview mistakes people make, particularly executives – – – being somewhere else.

Summary

I want to talk with you today, I'm not concerned with your senior professional (though I see more with seniors with staff level people)... As an executive, you go to interviews and you've got a very full plate. You are handling a lot of things, you are walking out on situations that will require your attention. You are distracted. That's probably the best way to put. You are distracted. You arrive at an interview where people carve that significant portions of the day and you're not prepared to focus right away on delivering your message, let alone even remember your message. You're still back in your office you're still back at home , because the distraction could also come from your home. As a result, you don't deliver at the meetings.

Terrible mistake to make! It's 1 of the dumbest things you can imagine.

Your spending time to talk with people about the role. He clearly interests you, about an opportunity that appeals to sufficiently that you're carving out time in your day to talk to people about it, and you're not prepared because you still back at your office or your back still in an argument with your wife/husband/partner or the kids if absent you... Whatever it is, you are off somewhere else. Dumb thing to do.

I just want to encourage you that if you feel like you would be distracted, take a few minutes before hand, I out in your car, get some coffee, spend some time by yourself and focus. Meditate and beat you at your best.

After all, when you are evaluating and assessing people and you get the sense that someone is not on the game, what is your 1st reaction? Rejection, of course. It will be the same for you, too.

Put aside the members from now. Put aside the distractions. Be focused on being the best you, you can be.

Preparing to Job Search: Figure Out Your Stories | JobSearchTV.com


This next step of your interview preparation is a step between getting your resume ready and interviewing.

 

Summary

I’ll use a story to illustrate. When my son was really young and it was time to go to bed, he would often ask me to tell him a story.

“Daddy!” I knew he was stalling before going to sleep. “Tell me a story!” One day, I looked over at his nightstand and saw a dollar bill. I held it up to him and said:

“Today, I’m going to tell you story about Bill.” We went on this journey around the world where I would tell a story about Bill … Basically, I was talking about how money moves around the world. Every sentence I ended with ended with an “ill.”

“So, Bill traveled everywhere. He was in a restroom one day and he ate something that he care for and suddenly became . . . My son would say, “Ill!” And it would go on from there, until we got to the point where Bill died and suddenly he needed a “will.” So, we would go on like this.

Stories have a unique way of affecting us and engaging us and that's true in your interviews, too. I want to encourage you, you have got a resume and you be sending it out and some firm is going to call you for an interview,

I want you to look at your resume and what you describe there and I want you to be thinking of stories related to the role, responsibilities accomplishments and such. The format. I want you to think in terms of is

What was the problem that you faced?
What action did you take?
What results did you get?
If you can, the metrics for what you accomplished in terms of dollars saved dollars and dollars earned

I was interviewing a guest on “Job Search Radio” who referred to it as the PAR method. I said, “it's actually Italian. It’s actually PARM.”

Think in terms of comparing yourself by money saved or money earned is the metrics, and, if you are not in a role where you can speak about that, like you are in administrative assistant or you work on a helpdesk, what have you, you can speak in terms of how you handled something 13% more effectively or handle more tickets by 27% than other call center operators did for example.

So, there's always a way of describing it but it starts off with Problem-Action-Result-Metrics. When all is said and done, this is the part of your preparation for your interview that you can do in advance and just jot it down. Become familiar with it so that, in this way, when you get to the first phone interview, a screening call (but is an interview, nonetheless) and they talk with you, “tell me about what you did on the last . . . And they will ask you about something on your resume, “Well, I dealt with a situation where we had a problem with such and such.” Lay out the story of what the issues were. You can just listen to them become engaged. Then, you talk about, “So, I was asked to step in and do such and such.” So, you talk about what actions you did. You mobilized a group people. You talked with the afflicted party. You understood what their needs were and where the deficiencies work, you go on and on and on. Then, you talk about the results that came about from this and how it helped improve results by 70% . . . 2 million dollars. Whatever it was.

Think in terms of PARM

What would you do? Would you take an interview for a job you aren’t interested in.

Summary

"Should I interview for a job. I am not interested in?" Well, like all my shows, it starts off at the answer, "it depends."

It depends on something very simple-- are you early in your job search or late in your job search?

At the beginning of your job search, I encourage people to interview as many places as possible. Why? Practice.

Practice convincing people. Practice answering technical questions. It is an informational process where you learn more about your skills interviewing and, at the end of the day, if they are interested in hiring you and you are interested in the job because you are surprised and someone by what you're being told, GREAT! But, once you get further along, if it is a job, you are not interested, don't waste your time. Don't waste the hiring manager's time. Don't put yourself in the position of being pushed by a recruiter to do something you don't want to do because they are saying, "Come on! You're my pal. You're my buddy! Do it! Do it! Do it!"

So, again, at the beginning of your job search, it makes a lot of sense of that you have a chance to practice in a situation that you don't really care about. It's a good idea to practice where if you get turned down, it is okay. But, later on in the search, don't do it.
