EP 1498 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discourages you not to pay attention to employer BS and keep your eye on the prize.

Summary

You got to think of it like the Wizard of Oz-- don't look what's behind the curtain. Just pay attention to the big, powerful voice. Don't worry about what's behind the curtain.

Let me take you behind the curtain for second. One of the classic that employers try to do Is distract you into the job and focusing about the job, rather than the money. The probability is you are not a wealthy person. If you are this is not for you. You can click away now. The fact of the matter is that almost everyone who listens to the show is trying to improve themselves professionally. AND make more money.

When employers try to do is talk with you about how important what you are going to learn is, how important are going to be in the firm and give you a warm fuzzy feeling... And avoid the money conversation except to talk you down from what you really want. I want to remind you that money is incredibly important.

I've made this next point and other videos. If you get $5000 more over the course of 5 years, pretax between salary increases and raises That you will get over 5 years, you will be ahead by about $25,000 and $26,500 more than if you accept a lateral might be offered to you.

However, if what you do is get $10,0000 more, that is going to become $51,000 or $52,000 more.. If you get $15,000 more,, that becomes between $75,000 and $78000 in increased earnings..Change jobs before the 4th year In either of these scenarios you will have catapulted quite a bit more.

As far as I can tell, money should be important to you and shouldn't be lost from your equation of evaluating things. Don't focus on the deflection. You know, I'm I pretend to be the puppetmaster here… Talk to the hand while I completely hypnotize you with what I'm saying here and avoid the money.

Let me take a quick story. Someone came to me for coaching advice. We reviewed some of the decisions he made in the previous job search. I listen to a story and listen to his story and said to them, "You have made some mistakes."

"What kind of mistakes that I make?"

"You fell for the BS. Employers have trick you into focusing on the career opportunity and the same employers of the firms that laid you off when times get a little tough. When that have been better if you had a few thousand dollars more in your pocket then to be out of work for 4 months like you are now?"

Recognize that you have to look out for yourself. You have to look after your family. The employer isn't going to do that. The hiring manager that is telling you all this wonderful stuff may get fired, just like you at the time of the next economic crisis.

Pay attention to the money. I'm not saying to hold out and squeeze them and bleed them dry. Push up a little bit. Don't just accept the 1st offer. Try to do a little negotiating, see if you can up the money. Like I said, $5000 more over the course of 5 years is an extra $25,000 pretax. Let's say you're the highest tax bracket, that's an extra $12,500 or $13,000 In your pocket. Would you rather have that?

EP 1482 Whether you are interviewing for a job or marketing your business, this is the pivotal question.

Summary

A while back, it's actually been several years ago, I did a video talking about the advanced version of "tell me about yourself" and I want to expand upon that concept and not just simply do it from the standpoint of a job hunter, but, if you're a business owner, if you're a sales person, whatever you are, it is a way to talk about, "Tell me about yourself." Again, addressing this, let's get expansive.

Now, the traditional answer is, "well, I've been in my field for x number of years," and then you kind of go through a 45 second little biography. Then, in the advanced version, I talk about, "but what makes me special is," and then I ask someone to identify the unique characteristics that a person has that makes them unique.

Now, in marketing lingo, that's a unique selling or unique value proposition and, if you're a business person, if you're a job hunter, I want you to think in those terms-- what makes you special? What makes you unique? Thus, as you talk to organizations, you want to be hired by firms that value that because, number one, they're going to pay a premium, right? If you're a business, and you're doing what everyone else does, you're a commodity, right? If you're a job Hunter, and you're the same as everyone else, you're paid the same as everyone else. So you always want to be presenting what makes you special? What makes you in a unique individual in your field, and not just average Joe and Jane or average Inc. So, think of what makes you unique.

Now, I remember as a headhunter., when I did that kind of work, I was listening to one search firm after another that I was competing with, talk about how they qualified people and they evaluator them and give in depth interviews. I paused for a second, I would look over at the client and say, "that doesn't make them unique. That's a given, right?"

Again, a lot of what people will talk about is what's expected of them. So that's a confirmation. If you were a job hunter, you might talk about your background, and talk about the things that a firm is trying to hire for that, that they're trying to hire for this job.

I would say to them, "And I'm sure you're everyone that you're talking to says much the same time. But what makes me different is," and then they, you know, they would talk about those special qualities, about how they're able to spot problems proactively, quickly. They're always thinking of how to do something a little bit better.

Giving examples of that for you, as a business, if you're in sales, it's not telling people what they're already expecting. It's the unique characteristics that you provide. That makes your firm unique. So maybe it's fun. Maybe it's you create an environment where people love to buy insurance. I'm just using that as a goofy example. But you get the idea.

Always think about what makes you special, what takes the experience beyond simply what the consumer wants, or I should say what they expect of you and takes it to a higher level.
