EP 1330 What do I do to expand my search?

Summary

I recently learned that the best way to land a job is to know someone within a company. But I also learned that I don’t know that many people….
I have been messaging people on LinkedIn (people I know, and that I don’t know) and, hopefully, that will get me something.
What do I do to expand my search?
What are some networking tricks when your job hunting?
I hate this question and I hate the implication of this question. Let me explain.
The first implication of the question is you only network with the job hunting. The second one is that you have to trick people into helping you.
What are some networking tricks? I know. I know. What are some networking tips that I can use when I am job hunting.
Step number one. Don't leave network with your job hunting. That's the real big one.
You have to think of networking has been part of her job at every stop in your career, not just when your job hunting. Your employer may not be paid you for it, but you will employer is – – namely YOU.
You are your own employer.
You are self-employed and every decision you make is looking out for their own interests, you and your career.
Don't outsource that to your employer otherwise you are screwed. They are looking out for themselves and, although they tell you that they care about you and they think you are wonderful, they are not looking out for you, nor is it their job to look out for you. That is a seduction on your part is not true.
You have to think in terms of being self-employed and doing the things that are needed in order to build a brand for yourself. You want to become known as an expert in your field, as well as your particular level in your field.
So if you are junior developer, you can't compare yourself to a CIO or a VP of technology. You are different and comparing yourself to them is a mistake.
Learn from those people, but comparing yourself to them is foolhardy.
So I hate this question because it's just all the bad qualities of job hunting that cause it to become has hated as it is. After all, job hunting shouldn't be about needing to suddenly network; that's what career should be about – – building your relationships so that if you need one another at different times you are there to help one another at those times.
It's a two-way street. It's about developing relationships over the course of time. After all, if you are suddenly connected to someone on LinkedIn, do you expect them to jump through a hoop for you?
No! You wouldn't jump through who for them; why would you expect them to jump through hoops for you?
Think smart. You are the chairman of the board of your organization (in my case, it is "The Altman Organization). Get out there, get known and build relationships. Then, people will be more than willing to help you.

Tough Interview Questions: Are You Actively Interviewing? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2018/03/23/tough-interview-questions-are-you-actively-interviewing

EP 1052 How do I answer when a recruiter asks me “Are you actively interviewing, and do you have any deadlines, pending offers, etc.?”

Summary

How do you answer the question, "Are you actively interviewing?  

What are they really trying to find out?"

There are a few ways to answer this question based upon where you are in your job search.

If you have been out of work for 6 months and they asked this question, they are tossing you a lifeline. After all, if it is been 6 months that you've been out of work, they are thinking that there was something wrong with you. It gives you a chance to say, "I took a few months off. I never did that at any point in my life before that. The kids have grown up. I decided to take it a little easy.  It's time for me to get back to work."  That's the way to answer the question if there is been a period of time where you been out of work.

If They Recruited You . . .

Let's work with the assumption that they are recruiting you and they asked this question.  Then, the purpose of the question is very different than when asked of the person is been out of work for 6 months.

Here, they are trying to figure out whether (1) you are out interviewing and where you are in your job search. (2) I've had people who contacted me about position side advertised for, and they have 3 job offers and expect my client to jump through hoops to compete with those other offers in one day. after one meeting that lasts for 1 minute.

It doesn't work that way. You went out on a bunch of dates before you decide to get married, right? Employers are no different.

The implication for the person who was recruited and is asked this question is to figure out whether we were lucky enough to just find you and your background fits the job or did we stumble across someone who is actively interviewing and is been on 27 different interviews… You get the idea.

The correct way to answer if you have been on a few interviews is to say, "Yes, I have been on a few interviews recently."

"Where are you in your search?"

"I don't think I'm close to an offer. I have had firsts and seconds at a few places. Firms seem interested, but I don't have any offers yet and no one is talking to me like I am getting one yet. That's a good way to deflect the question.

Now, if you are close to an offer, from the recruiter's perspective, they are thinking, "Why should I invest time in this person when I not going to make any money or my client will take too long for this person and their timetable. I know this hiring manager can take a month to even decide to interview this person."  On and on and on.

From the standpoint of the employer-recruiter, based upon what they know of the hiring manager, they are trying to figure out whether they have the time to get you into the process and bring it to a successful end.

If you say something like, "I have a few things I seem to be on final rounds for but I don't have any job offers yet"

"What would keep you from accepting an offer from 1 of those firms?"

"Well, money, of course. After all, I'm not looking to take a lateral or less. If they offer too little, I'm not going to join."

"How much would you be looking for?"

"Well, that depends upon the opportunity. I obviously want to contribute to an organization . . . "

I'm trying to give you a sense of the flow of the conversation as you answer questions.

How Do I Get a Recruiter to Respond to A Salary Negotiation? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2018/03/19/how-do-i-get-a-recruiter-to-respond-to-a-salary-negotiation

EP 1048 There has been no response to emails or instant messaging. I don’t want to bother my boss. Why aren’t they getting back to me?

Summary

I was asked, "How do I get a recruiter to respond to a salary negotiation?"

The person has been an intern and they have made an offer to them.  The recruiter for this firm hasn't been responding to emails or instant messaging and the intern is frustrated.  They want to find out how they can reach this person for negotiating.

Here are a few points:

As an intern who is converting to full-time staff, you are small fish on their plate.  I have other, more important fish to fry, too.  HR has a lot of things on their plate; they have hiring managers who are demanding service; they are interviewing; they are trying to fill positions; they are writing a heads… There are many things that HR is doing… You are not a big concern for them.
This HR person may be out of the office.  They may be traveling. They may be doing campus recruiting, hence why they may not be responding to you.
You are right not to trouble your boss.  This is not a major priority.  If the rule, they offered you a job  and you have already done parts of this job before.  They will probably be asking themselves, "What's the big deal?  You knew what the price point was we brought you want for this internship?"
They just don't care.  There's no point or concern that they have, because, after all, it's not like you're the only intern on the planet or qualified to do this job.  There are others. Their desire to negotiate is really small.
Let me summarize for you where you stand.

On the one side there is a rock. On the other side, there is a hard place.  You are somewhere between the two.

If your goal is to just make the connection and they are not respond, send an email to HR with the subject line, "Are you okay?"  The message may read something along the lines of, "I have emailed and I am do you and had not received a response.  I have a few questions about the job offer.  Would you give me a call, please?  I just want to make sure you are okay?  My experience of you is that you would normally get back to me but since I haven't heard, I just want to make sure that you are all right."

That will usually "guilt them" into surfacing.

EP 1266 Things can wrong in many places in your job search. 

Summary

You're involved with a job search. It's just not working for you. How do you critique what's going on in order to figure out what to course correct? Right?
It's very rare that a job search goes in a perfectly straight line with absolute progress and you wind up in a job instantly. Often the situation breaks down. So let's look at how to dissect it
If you're sending out resumes, and you aren't getting any interviews, you've got a resume problem. The resume isn't working for you. How you aresubmitting it isn't working for you.
If you're not even getting phone calls about resumes that you've posted on job boards, the issue may be one of two things. It could be the career that you've chosen for yourself isn't particularly marketable or, more likely, your resume is not keyword rich in the kind of skills that recruiters are looking for. You may need to change the language on your resume.
If you're getting calls for phone interviews and aren't being invited in, you've got a problem with phone interviewing. You just don't know how to do it well enough to entice people to want to continue the conversation. So,you need to improve on that. There are many different ways. I have a bunch of the posted as JobSearchCoachingHQ.com. But I'll simply say that you need to improve your phone interview.
If you getting phone interviews, being invited in for in-person ones and not getting asked back, you don't interview well in person. That could be caused by a variety of things too numerous to really mention here but that's where the breakdown is occurring. If you're getting invited back for finals and not getting past "the boss of bosses," you know "the Don" for the organization, the person to whom this job ultimate the reports, not the immediate manager, but the over "the overlord," you're not making connections with people, certainly not at the high levels.
And if you're getting offers and you're getting low balled,you haven't done a good enough job on your interviews to make them believe that you can solve their problems. So, they're basically tossing a bone at you and seeing if you'll bite. You haven't made them fall in love yet.
So this is how a job search gets deconstructed. There are obvious paths along the way and often people go through the process of just going through the motions.You know, they send out resumes. They don't prepare for phone calls. They haven't really keyword optimized their resume to make it attractive on job boards. They're flipping resumes across the transom like they're burgers at a fast food restaurant. How well does that work? Do you find them tasty? No, of course not. Neither does the employer. You're a spammer.
And if you're interviewing and not practiced for it, it's your fault, again. You haven't done the homework necessary to impress people all at all.
Job hunting involves skills that you can learn and skills that you can develop. JobSearchCoachingHQ.com will provide those answers for you and, I'll simply say, sign up on the site. It's very inexpensive. There's a lot there that you'll be able to learn from.
Hope you found this helpful, and hope you have a great day.

EP 1223 I have alluded to this on other shows but this really is the FASTEST way to find a new job.

Summary

I call is video, “the faster FASTEST way to find a new job” and it really is the fastest way. It can have a slight delay, hence why did the faster piece at the beginning but really it’s the fastest way to find a new job.

Ready?

Do you want to hear it?

Okay, here goes.

Once you have decided it's time to look at other things, I want you pick up the phone and call your former boss, that man or woman that you worked for before who is now off at another organization and just simply say, “Jeff, I’ve decided it's time to move. I really loved working for you. I learned a lot from you period I had a great experience with you. I was so disappointed when you left. I understand everyone as to make professional choices, but I really miss working for you. Can you use me in your group, in your team (however you would want to describe the environment that you be working in).”

They may say, “YES” or “I can’t use you right now. Could you hold out for a couple months? I have a knew budget coming in,” or “I could take you on a September as a contractor initially, but then I can bring you on to staff.”

They may say, “I don’t think this is the kind of place . . . I I don’t think I can use you. I’m fully staffed and I have a great team here.”

“Is there someone in your organization that you could point me to or introduce me to who might be able to use someone like me?”

Hence, this really is cutting the line. It's getting into the situation very quickly and seeing if … I’ve seen so many people over the years been able do this over the years. You know the story, too.

So, instead of being a nice boy a nice girl and applying for jobs through human resources, just go to an old boss that you liked working for and see if this tactic will work. If it doesn’t, hey, it was one phone call and it took seven minutes.

They may remember at a point when they hear about something and come back to you, but, the end of the day, this really is the fastest way to find a new position.
