EP 1453 There are number of things someone can do to stand out in a crowded field.  Most of them take time that is well worth spending.

Summary

Great question I got! "How do you stand out in a crowded field?"

The problem with answering questions like this is that people want instant results. Sorry, folks, it doesn't happen overnight. It takes time. You see, when advertisers want to influence you, 99% of the time, you are not influenced by the 1st viewing of the commercial, the 2nd view of the commercial or the 22nd viewing the commercial. It is a process of time, right? That's what happens. That's what advertisers do.

The truth of the matter is, the way you stand out is over the course of time. Most people think that they write the best resume is absolutely perfect, and they apply to a job as a good boy or good girl through the applicant tracking system, they are going to stand out. They look for a magic bullet to stand out by diving into an ocean with lots of fish. You don't stand out that way. You have to go a different route.

Here are a few things I jotted down for how to stand out in the crowded field:
1. Branding yourself in developing a reputation that other people know about. This is something that takes time. I have done other articles, videos and podcasts about branding. I'm not going to go into that now.
2. Start doing informational interviews. These can be with people that you know or that people who you know know (2nd level from you). That takes time.
3. Get to know hiring managers. Sometimes you can get introduced. Sometimes you meet them through associations or organizations were you or they have an opportunity to meet one another. There are a lot of different ways to meet hiring managers.
4. References on LinkedIn. Do you have 2 references or 222 references? You may think that's ridiculous but look at my profile. I have tons of recommendations and tons of testimonials for work that I do. Why can't that be you? There are people who you know who would be very happy to attest to your competence.
5. Activating your network. You think that it takes one action to get your network ACTIVATED! Not true at all. 1st of all, most of you don't cultivate a network. It starts with what you do when you don't need them in order to cultivate them so that when you actually need them they are willing to be activated. Take action. Think about it. In your life, forget about your work life, just in your life in general, when people ask you for a favor, and you hardly know them, when people ask you for a favor what you actually do for them? Sometimes you do something, but most of the time you don't. That's the reality to it. You are no different. Just because you are looking for job, you think people are going to stop in their tracks and take lots of action to help you. It doesn't work that way, does it? You need to cultivate your network to activate your network.
6. In order to stand out, never EVER apply for job to an applicant tracking system. I mentioned this before. If you were swimming in the ocean that had 1 million fish unit, how easy is it to stand out? Not particularly easy, is it? However, if you are a small pond and the relatively few fish, it is a lot easier to stand out under those circumstances. Remember, if you apply for job to an applicant tracking system and doing the good boy and good girl thing (being a nice little puppy and doing what you're told to do), you are making a big mistake. You're so much better off getting to the hiring manager. You can find them through LinkedIn. You can find them 3 people you know. You can find them to people who you know who know other people who may know this person. Do what recruiters do and ask for help. "Who do you know who knows someone who works at…" Or "Who do you know who knows someone who works at (fill in the blank) who might know the person I'm looking for?". "Do you know anyone who works in accounting at so-and-so?" Asked for recommendations. You ask, "Who do you know who…" Ask it of everyone that you know. Ask it of the hiring managers that you get together with. You have no idea who the people you know know who you don't know.

Just remember that 70% of all positions are filled through networking and 70% of those 70% (or 49%) are filled as a result of introductions to people who you didn't know at the beginning of your job search. As I mentioned before, these are the people that your network knows that you don't know.

Those are number things that you can do to stand out.

Career Management: Thinking Ahead and Planning | JobSearchTV.com

The reality is your career is in your own hands, When you get lazy about including that effort, you place yourself at risk. Here, I help streamline what and why you should do these things.

Summary

This is a video that talks about career management and I know the history and the programming that people receive about working hard and working your way up. We know it's not true anymore. I know I remember watching TV as a kid and there was always the guy getting the gold watch after 40 years of service, the retirement ceremony, the big buzz around this person finally living life and here's the reality -- It doesn't exist anymore.
So, I want you to think a little bit differently and start paying attention to your programming because, one of the reality is, is that job stability doesn't exist anymore. You're responsible for your career. Every time you take the opportunity to outsource your career and your career planning and management to your employer, you're putting yourself at risk. That's because their interest and yours often are very different. The result winds up being so many people get caught by surprise when they're let go, not because of performance, but because their firm isn't doing well or they take on assignments or projects that have no real value outside their organization. So, think in terms of each job each task, how it will impact your career going forward.
The next thing is you want to be in this situation where you'd become more well-known than your organization would really like you to be. Think in terms of putting yourself in the position of (I'm going to put a marketing term together) creating a brand for yourself where people know you because of what you've put out into the world.
Now, this is not a "I do it one time and that's how I create my brand." This is a sustained strategy where you work to write and create video and to promote yourself as a speaker and in a variety of other venues as an individual who has a reputation for excellence at what you do. Remember, every time you put yourself in the position of being ordinary, just one of the pack, You are at risk of getting weeded out.
In a new organization, you want to be referred in and put in the position where an organization has heard of you or people in the organization have heard of you and they want to refer you in for an opportunity because they've read your material. they've watched your videos . . . they just know of you and they're curious and they want to refer you. This is branding.
This version of self-promotion is really the big pivot and how career planning takes place. It's not like you want to be out there every day with something (although that's really what I did). But, as a coach, as a person who wants to work with more people and understands that people want to know about you, this is my career. This is my work; that's not going to be the case for you.
As an employee of an organization, you will always have to be in a position where you're balancing your job with the need to promote, the need to network and to stay in contact with people with whom you've had a successful relationship for many years and do it going forward. So always think of yourself as a promoter.
Always think of yourself for how you can be known in the world. Whether you can be world class or just another person and everything that you're doing to take charge of your career will have benefit to you for many years to come.

LinkedIn Is Making It Easier to Connect | JobSearchTV.com

Here is information about a number of new features that LinkedIn has introduced to help you connect and promote yourself.

Summary

LinkedIn has been evolving much more rapidly since the Microsoft acquisition. I've spoken about some different features in previous videos and podcasts. But I thought I would put together a couple of ones I hadn't discussed before, into one video so that you could get a sense of some new options that are available for you.
Now, the first one and, this is a fun one, is called giving kudos. That's k-u-d-o, in case you're not familiar with the word. Now, the notion is giving public praise extemporaneously. It's ideal for someone who works in your organization who you want to give an Attagirl or an Attaboy to publicly. It's different than skills and endorsements, which are the checkboxes on LinkedIn.
It's different than the recommendations. It's designed to be very short comments that you give praise for going above and beyond, for doing great work, stuff along those lines. People will get notified when you give a Kudo and I'm sure LinkedIn is going to start putting out public numbers about people who give kudos and people who receive kudos. Justli ke you give recommendations and they tally that and that you receive recommendations and they tally that as well. So, start looking at situations in your office where you give someone a Kudo. Like, for example, your boss. You know, it's like getting praised by your subordinate.
"Great manager! Really inspiring!" Things along those lines will help them. Then, they'll notice you because LinkedIn is going to notify them about you and about what you wrote. I can assure you, they'll start to reciprocate. So number one, start giving kudos.
Number two is there's a feature now in the mobile app, where if you're at a conference, and I spoke about one feature where you can connect via QR codes with people, but also think of this feature, which is "Find People Nearby."
So, if there's a Bluetooth setting, the has to be activated, and, of course, it's in the mobile app because you're at a conference. You are not walking around with your laptop. Think in terms of turning on this feature and looking for find people nearby so you can say, "hi," and say "hi, we're connected on LinkedIn. I use the mobile app and told me that you were nearby." It's a only like 100 feet away. So it's not like designed for a stadium. You can be anywhere and, in theory, if someone's within 100 feet of you that you're connected with, you can find them and basically message and find a way that you can connect with them.
Here's a fun one. If you follow companies, LinkedIn will now notify you when they post a new job. That's sweet. You don't have to go, if you're interested in working for a particular organization, you don't always have to check your page. Every time they post a job on LinkedIn, you're notified of it, which is really convenient. The mobile app, there's an option for seeing what your commute would be like to that organization.
Another great feature. Sometimes, we have these romantic notions of of working at particular firms only to discover that they're two hours away from us and we never really could work for them because we don't want to put up with that.
So, take a look at following companies that you're interested in and then also see the commute in the mobile app. As you know, you'll be able to check that against job postings.
Another one is related to job postings is to be able to see how you match. This is kind of like an app I reviewed recently called jobscan.co. No affiliate link here, I just simply said, what jobscan.co does is take the job description, take your resume that you've copied and paste both in and they'll give you a percentage match. LinkedIn is doing something similar. How you match basically signals how your LinkedIn profile matches the requirement. I don't know if it makes recommendations of changes, but it's going to give you a sense of how you match up against the job so you don't spin your wheels.
Last thing I want to mention (and this has been known for a long time), referred candidates are four times more likely to be interviewed than people who are going in through the front door without a referral. Where you can find someone that you're connected to who could refer you to an organization, it always serves you best.

Review: Networking Basics: 8 Tips to Networking WIthout Appearing Fake


I review this YouTube video as well as summarize the content.

Summary

Today, I want to do a review of a video I saw on YouTube that was done by Marie Forleo, who is a terrific marketer, terrific information provider. Everything that I've heard about Marie is terrific. So I don't want to make it seem like, in reviewing this, my intention is to go out of my way to beat her up. She doesn't deserve that at all. She's a terrific advocate for people. So, the video is called "Networking Basics: 8 Tips to Networking Without Being Fake."
Now, I want to stop by saying this is a networking Basics video. So, it covers the obvious points in networking, but it has her own twist to it. I think they're quite good. So let me start by saying the most important thing that she says early on, the one thing that I think most people will overlook when they think about it, is that networking is an ongoing organic process. It is not something that you do once every two years when we are changing jobs or when you need something from someone it's something that has to be part of your repertoire so that, in this way, you don't appear like a mooch. You are developing relationships with people which is really what networking is all about.
So, she then continues by going through her 8 points. I'm just going to go through them quickly. Networking involves focusing on giving, rather than getting. Introducing people. Doing things to share with them without any expectation of anything in return. You need to be present is her second point and that, when you're meeting someone at a networking scenario, don't be looking behind them. I'm trying to do that now to illustrate. Don't be looking behind them to see who else is there who you might go to next. Be present with the individual. She tells a great story in the course of illustrating this point.
Listen more than you talk and she uses the metaphor of two ears /one mouth as part of teaching us. Always think in terms of the long term. It's not a short term situation which to me is kind of redundant with her big point which (networking) is an ongoing organic process.
Don't overcommit and feel guilty is her fifth point. By that is promising more than you can really deliver at that particular time.
Number six is be honest. No false promises offered. If you have no intention of getting in touch with this person ever again and they are looking to set up a time to speak, it's really easy to go, "Okay, no problem. Give me a call," and never respond and that makes you look terrible. Better to simply say, "I am booked solid. Could you bear with me and I'll see if I can get to you," or "I don't know when I'm going to wind up having time," and just kind of push them away from the immediacy to a time later on.
If you are interested in networking with them, take action immediately. So, if you've promised to do something for someone, you can do it on your phone, right? A lot of things you can handle immediately, like within five minutes of leaving the conversation that creates a great impression. At the latest, if you're meeting them at a conference, in a trade show, at a networking event, do it when we get home. Don't push it off when you might risk forgetting about it. Give yourself a memo on your phone to remind you to take this action.
Lastly, I think this is an important one, only go to events that excite you. Only go to make friends. If your reason for going to a networking event is to take, if you're not really interested in the subject of the event at the conference, don't go! At the end of the day, you have to do things to please yourself and not fixate on the connection. Afterall, the game plan in networking is to make friends and to build a partnership with someone, not just go gimme, gimme,gimme,gimme,gimme.
Her video was good, but it's basic and that was the intention. So, for those of you who are new and or uncomfortable with networking, (thumbs up)

On the Outside Looking In? | JobSearchRadio.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/03/21/on-the-outside-looking-in/

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.

I had 6 questions to answer . . and then someone sent me a 7th AND I DIDN’T LAUGH!

What is the best way to network when you don’t know anyone in authority roles?

I have been approached by another recruiter for a role that I have previously interviewed for via another recruiter, about six months ago. What should I do?

Is there a permanent record of employment history? Will potential future employers be able to tell if a certain place of employment has been omitted on an application?

Are applicants less likely to get a job interview or be hired for the job if they require travel reimbursement or relocation assistance from the employer?

Do recruiters know you studied for an interview based on your responses?

Should job-seekers email an HR office directly for a job or only respond to specific job postings?

You ever just get so frustrated looking for a job that you give up and cram 10 waffles covered in syrup into your butthole so yours hairs are either knotted or tangled ..The syrup is like super glue
