Using The Myth of the Passive Job Applicant to Your Advantage | JobSearchTV.com


Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter explains The Myth of the Passive Job Applicant and how to use it to your advantage.

Summary

Hi, I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm called the Big Game Hunter because I hunted down leaders and staff for organizations for more than 40 years. Today, I want to talk with you about "the myth of the passive job applicant" and how to really use that mythology to your advantage. Let me first define what a passive job applicant is in the popular lexicon of recruiters and corporations.
And that is, a passive job applicant is one who doesn't appear as though they're actively looking for work. Their resume is not on the job boards because they're too busy doing what they do in their current employers. The myth is that these people are superior to the active job applicants because the active ones are the ones that got fired by their previous firms because the performance was poor than others. That the passive job applicant is so busy doing what they're doing that they would never see the ad on the job board that would cause them to apply. So, these are deemed to be superior applicants to the active ones.
Now. It's a crock. You and I both know that .I helped to create the myth many many years ago when I started an agency and I didn't really have an advertising budget that was worth much of anything. I was in New York at the time the New York Times was costing something like $25 per column line in the classified listings three-line minimum and that would basically put your ad in the lower part of the page. To get any sort of visibility, you had to be on the top of the crease which meant you ran a 40 line ad at $25 per line. It was really expensive. It's expensive. n. Imagine what it was like in the early 70s.
So in creating the myth of the passive applicant, what I would say to people is much like I described. What I do is I recruit people who are not actively looking for work. You get the best person available, not the best person who is reading the New York Times on Sunday and that resonated with organizations. My competitors started to use the line. Employers started to ask whether or not I was referring passive job applicants.
It was hysterical to me that things were coming full circle. And, now it's become so popular that this whole mythology has been created about it even though it's factually incorrect. So, recognize that if there's a firm that ran an ad and you didn't respond to it and they found you on LinkedIn ,to them you are a passive applicant even though you're aggressively looking for a job. that's how goofy this is.
So, to take advantage of the mythology, number one is where you can when you're on a job board, list your resume with a blind heading. By that, I mean, you know those listings where no name or address appears and they just have an email address from the job board? Even if you have to pay for do it because that hides the fact that you're looking for work.By the way, remember your own employer's on the job boards trying to see whether or not their employees are looking for work. So, you want to hide the fact that you're job hunting.
Secondly. In terms of LinkedInwhich is the obvious place where you want to be found, you want to have a great profile available. Underneath your name, you want to have a list of skills that are your strengths,, not just some job title that is so generic it's purposeless. Better to talk in terms of management experience for particular lines of business or management experience with certain technologies or development experience with certain Technologies or accounting experience focused in on . . . Then you talk about it. Think in terms of what's going to make it easy for someone to figure out whether or not to scroll down to see what you've done. You want to pretend a six-year-old is scanning LinkedIn ,looking for people and, as such, make it obvious for them. So, really what you want to be doing is hiding the fact that you're looking, even if you're out of work and aggressively looking and having a LinkedIn profile where, number one is ,your email address is correct. It's bizarre to me how many people have the wrong email address on their LinkedIn profile. Number two is they have a ridiculous photo of themselves or that image block where there's no picture there. But there's a I forgot what it's called, but a blacked-out image of someone there.
It's goofy. Don't have a picture of yourself and your partner and your kids up there. Have a professional headshot appear. Something that's going to make them see that you don't look like a sociopath and that you have a professional demeanor. I also think of your profile as a way of enticing people to contact you. Recognize this means that you have to make yourself available for response.
You can have a great LinkedIn profile and never check to see if you have messages, never respond to messages. What's the point? You know, you need to be out there putting yourself in the position in order to be found and that means replying when you get inMails.
So, this is Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I hope you found today's video helpful.
If you did come over to my website, which is JeffAltman,com and you'll see a lot more there. Of course. You can watch them on YouTube. You can find them at JobSearchTV.com.

You’ve Heard About the 10000 Hour Rule, Right? | | JobSearchRadio.com


How does the 10,000 hour rule apply to you and your job search?

Summary

I want to talk to job hunters and say something that will give you what I think is a Homer Simpson moment. You've heard of the 10,000 hour rule, right? It takes 10,000 hours of focus concerted effort under the advice and tutelage of the teacher in order to be an expert.

When you start job hunting, you have exactly how much experience? Think about it. You have exactly how much? And you putting how much effort into preparing? Writing your resume. What do you know about writing resumes? You may have read a bunch of them but how much experience you actually have writing one? Judging by what I see from people, somewhere near zero.

How about interviewing? How much interviewing have you ever done? I doubt it's anywhere near 10,000 hours and then you wonder why you don't get results.
.
Maybe it's about networking. You have the LinkedIn profile that doesn't get results or maybe you don't even have a LinkedIn profile and wonder and wonder why no one is calling you.

Salary negotiation! That's the one. But you don't really have a lot of experience with that either and wonder why you don't get results.

Let me ask you a question. If you could go to a website and get answers to all the critical interview questions and get advice from a master, without be helpful to you? I'm sure it would be.

I recently launched JobSearchCoachingHQ.com, and inexpensive site, with over 400 pieces of content including all my books and guides the job hunting, lots of videos, a bunch of podcasts, articles that I've written, curated so it is really good, available to you on the site for one price.

Plus the ability to ask me questions when you're stuck with something

. You may think your friends, family, former managers know what they're talking about when they speak with you but stop and think for a moment. How many jobs have they ever filled?

You may say your boss or former boss interviews a lot of people and certainly they should know. Trust me. When they're on the other side of the desk, they stink up the joint and if you don't believe me, point blank you're wrong. I interview people who are hiring managers and they are awful… But they give you advice.

It's time to stop giving other people advice about what they should do and take some for yourself.

Figure it out. When you write that resume how much experience that you have? Three hours over the course of 20 years? You don't know what you're doing. You think you do but you don't know what you're doing.

Again, JobSearchCoachingHQ.com is my site with advice for job hunters good anywhere in the world (you have to speak English to understand me, of course). There is a lot of great material there and you'll get your questions answered by me and were building the community there were other people will be able to chime in and offer you advice.

Respond to Phone Calls/Emails | JobSearchTV.com


Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter is pointed on his comments about the importance of returning calls in a timely manner.

Summary

Hi, I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm called the Big Game Hunter because I've hunted down leaders and staff organizations for more than 40 years. Today, I want to talk with you about responsiveness. Now, one of the complaints thatjob hunters have is no one responds to their resume the response to their emails, no response to them when they make a phone call yada yada yada.
One of the complaints that recruiters have and not just people like I was who worked for recruiting firms, but corporate recruiters have, as well, is that we receive a resume from someone, we call them, we send them an email,we don't get response.
Why is this ?After all, you saw a job listing or you got referred to a firm? and you don't respond for days? How does this make sense? And I'm not pointing this out to critical. Well, I am pointing it out to be critical. I'm pointing it out to correct an inappropriate situation where you are doing something to harm your own job search.
We're not sitting by the phone waiting for you to call. We're trying to help a lot of people concurrently. And, again, this is true of not just people who work for recruiting firms but people who work in corporate. It's not just one job they're trying to fill. The are trying to fill a lot of jobs.
They have meetings with people about other positions. They are trying to get feedback on interviews. They're interviewing people by phone or in person. You know, when we call, we have a reasonable expectation that since you sent us a resume or you've posted a resume on a job board, you are looking for a job ,right? And then you don't respond for 48-72 hours. Two weeks?? it's crazy.
So, my encouragement to you is when you get a phone call, respond to it. Even if you're going to call at night when there's no one there and just simply say, " sorry, I couldn't get back to you today. I'm going to try and reach on such and such date and time," that's useful to us. We know you're still interested. We know you actually have an interest in the job that you sent your resume in for. But not responding for days on end and then blaming it on the fact that you got overwhelmed by recruiters calling you is goofy.
So, again responde in a timely way when you get a phone call or an email from someone, even if it's to say, " sorry, I can't go into it right now.I'll be back to you tomorrow around such-and-such time. I hope that works. "Real easy J

What Are Your Goals? What is Your Strategy? | JobSearchRadio.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2016/10/27/job-search-radio-what-are-your-goals-what-is-your-strategy/

People come to me looking for a J-O-B with few clear goals about what they are looking for and how they will find it. Here’s how to start.

Summary

People often go into their job search, like petulant children.  They decide that they had enough working where they are, they are bored, they are angry and say, "I have had it!"  Then, they go off job hunting. There is a lot missing before that emotional response and the action that you should take.

The 1st thing is deciding what's going to be important you and you next job organization. What will you need to see her here to believe it's a good choice for you?  You need to figure out what that next step should do for you and resolve you.  How do you wanted to advance your career. What sort of steppingstone you want to achieve from this next position.

Without that, all you are doing is lurching from job to job, allowing others to sexually ambition for you.  You are allowing others to decide how they are going to use you and not deciding what is going to be important for you.

That's really a missing piece for a lot of people.  Job hunting involves doing things that will advance your career because, at the end of the day, does your employer really care about you?  Oh, I know your immediate manager is going to say all sorts of wonderful things like, "Your terrific!  You're wonderful!"  However, the real decision-makers, the ones 13 levels up from your manager, don't really care. You're just another working on the automated spreadsheet of their organization.  Another person in their HR system when the recession comes, you could be *[email protected]# out of luck, if you know what I mean who then write checks to.

You have to plan and manage your career as smartly as they do their organization.  Think of yourself as being the head of a company, deciding what you want to date.  You are the person up high looking down on you.  Figure out what's important to you.

You also need to think of what resources you have that can help you get there?  Yes, there are job boards, but that shouldn't be your entire strategy.  Yes, there are recruiters and that shouldn't be your entire strategy either, nor should those to be the only things that you execute because recruiters and job boards only fill a finite number of jobs.

The statistics show that networking helps fill far more positions, more than double the positions that those two do.  You need to think strategically of what resources you have and who they might be able to introduce you to who can be helpful to you.  And do those people can introduce you to and you can become involved with, that can be helpful to you and your career and how you can create an image for yourself and brand for yourself… You see where I'm going with this?

Bigger picture 1st, before you start running around like and not to get yourself an interview because you want to get out of there already.  Don't kid yourself. This work is far more important than just running around purposelessly.  When you start running around acting like a petulant child, you expend a lot of pointless energy. You need to start up here 1st. In order to figure out where you want to get to.

EP 1182 On today’s daily episode, I discuss a simple tactic for managing that critical voice in your head.

Summary

I'm here to talk with you about managing that inner voice within you. You know, the one that says, "You are not as good as you think you are. This is going to be hard. You suck."You know, that critical voice that lives inside most of us, almost all of us... Maybe all of us that sends messages to us that say were not as good as we think we are.

It may show up earlier in your job search; they may show ablative or job search. I just know that shows up. The voices the part of you that doesn't believe in yourself and it needs to be silenced.

You can have a friend to talk with; you have a wife/husband/partner/clergyman... Any number of people who you can talk with about it, but ultimately the most effective person to talk with you about it is you to calm the voice down. The voice is really the voice of your fear. It's the fear that this isn't going to work out. It's harder than you thought it might be; it's taking longer, etc. etc.

Let's say you're feeling stuck in your job search and someone was who you speaking with yesterday. You have the choice of going to a networking event or not. He talked to the boys whose basically telling you, "Well, you know, I'm not going to meet anyone there; it's going to be a big waste of time." You know, that voice? You very calmly say to you, "But I may need someone there. I may want of meeting someone who is going to be helpful. It's also good to get out the house and do something a little bit different AND, as I'm traveling to that networking event, I can reach out to someone else and parlay the trip into 2 or 3 different things. I appreciate your input, Voice, but, at the end of the day, I would like to make this trip with your okay and give it a shot. Maybe I'll do other trips like this and give them a shot because you never know what is going to happen."

That's one example of negotiating with The Voice. You can do it with, "My resume isn't getting results. " Maybe need to work on your resume or hire someone to work on your resume or get a resume critique to have it done. Same with your LinkedIn profile. If people are reaching out to you through LinkedIn, it is likely that there is something very wrong with your profile because it is not attracting recruiters who are out there relentlessly trying to find folks.

The Voice is not really useful in a job search. You need to contain it little bit because, at times, it has worked well for you and help you. In job hunting, however, most of the time, almost all of the time, it is the voice of fear and In a job search isn't going to help.
