The Self Assessment Profile for The Executive Search Firm | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com

EP 1372 If you want to play in the big leagues, you will probably need to change your thinking about the self-assessment the executive search firm sends to you.

Summary

I want to talk with you folks today, particularly if you are a senior professional, and are working with an executive search firm. To be clear, I'm not talking about a contingency firm that is saying to you, "we do executive search, too." I'm talking about the real deal firms. You're up for an SVP role or a C suite position of some kind and you're dealing with "the big boys," and "the big girls." Often, they will send the document to you that requires a self-assessment. How do you respond to this?

I had a conversation with someone I coach received a three-page document that he was asked to complete before he met the partner who is responsible for the search. His 1st reaction was to blow through it pretty quickly. I said, "Stop! Your job here is to make the case for your candidacy. They have developed a specification for the client. They sat down with them and met them. You spoken with the head of corporate HR prior to speaking with them. You have an advantage over some of the others. But, at the end of the day, they use this is a legitimate screening tool AND it can be used as the basis for their presentation of you to their client for how you fit. Why would you blow through this?"

I decided and persuaded him to take this three-page document and turn it into 7 - 8 pages in length. It's more than 100% increase in length, not being on the questions that seem pretty straightforward (questions like, "what's your compensation?" How long is that going to take? 3 lines? 4 lines?") but on questions that go to the heart of your ability to demonstrate how you fit the role and demonstrate your communications style.

If you want to blow through that, you are not ready for the big leagues. If you want to look this is the eyes of how the search firm is going to view you, not just simply by what you say but by what you don't say, but what you communicate, by what your style of communications is, then you are ready to play at this level.

Don't give short shrift to this because in the past you were less experience than thought this was a trivial exercise and thought someone should call you and talk to you. To play in the big leagues you have to deal with how the big boys and big girls want to be dealt with. They want your best take on how your background fits in. You're going to take the time to reflect and answer the questions in detail to give them great material to make the case for why you fit this role.

DON'T BLOW IT because there is nothing worse from your vantage point, then to not take something like this seriously and then wind up losing an opportunity because you were dismissive of it. That's a mistake. Don't make it.

Are There Places in Every State To Help You Find a Job? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com

EP 1354 What kind of places are you thinking of?  Government agencies?  Recruiters?  Nonprofit groups?’ 

Summary

The question for today is, "Are there places in every state to help you find the job?" 

It depends on what you mean by the word, "places."  After all, I'm sure there are recruiters in every state that will help you find the job.  There are people that will help you find a job.  If you mean government agencies, which is what I suspect you are asking about, yes, I'm sure there are agencies that do occupational training and, perhaps, an Office of Employment and Training that will help you find work.  It used to be called Unemployment.  These agencies will "help you find a job."  

What did they really do?  They will point you to a computer, tell you to do a search on their website and other websites to identify positions.

Do you think that's the way that's the way to help you find the job?
They may have pamphlets and other material for you to read (and probably not follow through on) that are designed to help you find the job, but are basic.

If you are the beginner level in your job search, you may need that kind of material to help you find work.

If you are a more experienced person, respectfully, , what I have seen of the information that is provided won't be good enough to help you. Certainly, they are not going to go out and "find jobs for you." Their job is to process people, not help you find the job.

Thus, the answer the question is, "it depends." For most individuals, it is very basic stuff that won't help you very much.

What you need to do take charge of your career, learn what you need to in order to find work now and in the future, and think of your career as a business that you own, not a him bdicated 2 other people.

It's kind of like investing in mutual funds – – you handle your money to other people who you think no better, but do they really? Or a financial adviser? Do you think some of them really know better?

At the end of the day, you may not get a lot out of these Office of Training facilities and other places that the government has set up. You will get some amount of advice from recruiting firms. You can find people who can help you. There are nonprofit groups that can help. But you need to be in charge of your career,

I created JobSearchCoachingHQ.com to help both beginning and experienced professionals access to great information to help you find work. Also, you can ask me questions while you're a member of the site and answer them to help you find work.

How Do You Get a Job After Being Self Employed for 20 Years? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com


Listen to the full episode here
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2019/01/23/how-do-you-get-a-job-after-being-self-employed-for-20-years

EP 1353 This scenario happens pretty frequently , and if it is happening to you now, I hope you find this helpful.

Summary

"How do you get a new job after being self-employed for 20 years?"
As many of my answers go, it depends.

It depends on the field that you are in. The answer is going to be different if you owned a retail store versus being an insurance broker versus being a contract consultant working in a number of clients. Let me give some general answers that will be part of the framework.

Assuming you are not a self-employed contractor type, that you have owned the business for a number of years, the idea is to take advantage of a number of the resources that you have that the average individual isn't going to have.

For example, you have a relationship with an accountants and he or she has relationships with other accountants, your networking should start with your accounting firm, your audit firm, your CPA… "I'm thinking of closing up and I think it's time for me to find a job. Please keep your eyes and ears open for me for other opportunities." If they're smart, they will.

Vendors
Start with your accountant, your insurance agent, all the vendors that you've worked with, make it clear that you're not going bankrupt and that you will be a deadbeat with your bills and asked them to introduce you to people who might be interested in what you do.

So you start with professionals and then you start to go to your extended network. 

For example, if you belong to a BNI chapter and speak to the other members that you're thinking of hanging it up, they will help you a lot, they will be an antenna for you in your local community for helping you get introductions.

Tell everyone – – friends, neighbors-- there is no embarrassment anymore. What you are doing is using your network of relationships in order to receive introductions to others.

There is a classic story and job hunting that I heard many years ago whose cleaning person introduce someone to her husband, who is the president of a bank. The reason the person was cleaning homes was as part of the spiritual practice. She didn't need the money but wanted to maintain humility.  Eventually, the person gave her resume, after all, this was the cleaning person and he didn't know her husband was the head of a bank.  After all, who could she possibly know they could help him?

That's why you tell everyone. You tell your banker (not the idiot at the desk. The person that you had a relationship with for a number of years, not the rotating 24-year-old who sits at a desk and opens accounts; obviously, there is a difference between the stereotype of the 24-year-old that I just used and others who are extraordinary). Start talking to everyone, making sure that they know.

Obviously, at some point you will need a resume. In constructing the resume, you will want to think, not in terms of being an owner, because, as an owner, unless you are buying another business or manage another business, you will be joining in a staff for all and, depending upon the staff role that you are interviewing for, make sure that your resume speaks to that part of your background.

So, lots of dynamics here and I want to offer a few points I thought might help.

Don’t Delete The Recruiter! | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com


Listen to the full episode here
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2019/01/21/dont-delete-the-recruiter-nobsjobsearchadvicecom

EP 1351 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter explains why you should pay attention when a recruiter contacts you about a job opportunity. 

Summary

Today I want to talk with you about what I'll nickname don't delete the recruiter. Let me explain what triggers this one,
Every time I get a new requirement, I have a database and I'll send an email out to people in my database who fit the skills requirement. And I'll just very simply say, "I'm doing a search for a client, describe what the client is or does, where they're located. I'll describe the position and the compensation. I'll continued by saying, "it's been a long time since we've been in contact. I thought it would drop a note to you and see if you might be interested. If you're qualified, interested in available please email me email a copy of your resume to me at . . . "and I provide my email address.
Now, often way too often, I receive a response that is almost the yelling at me.
"I told you to delete my email address before. Or it'll say, "get rid of this," or it will just simply say, "remove," you know, the polite version of go away.
That's okay. That however, is why I want to explain to you why it's not really in your interest to do any of those.
What I want to start with the premise that I think you can agree with is the person who gets ahead isn't always the smartest, they don't always work the hardest, although those are two great qualities to have. People could head by being alert to opportunity. Sometimes, those opportunities are internal to the organization. More often than not, they are external. Can you agree with that?
If you can, you can skip the rest of this video. If you can't, then I'll simply say you can't predict when opportunity is going to land in your lap. It won't necessarily arrive at a time where you decide that it's the right time. What you can do is just remain alert.
Now, you'll receive many emails from recruiters. They'll seem absolutely wrong. And I'll speak of myself early in my career where, again, I'be been doing this for more than 40 years. Now, when I was in my first or second year and sometimes later, I would contact someone who in no way shape or form fit a job because I just didn't know any better. I'm still learning my craft.
And yet at the same time, many of these opportunities I presented, eventually, whether it be right for someone, does that mean you should be abusive to the recruiter if they make a mistake or if they contact you at the wrong time? No, of course, not. Does that mean that you have to say yes to everything that's offered up to you. Of course, not. However, the only way you can know about these opportunities is if you read the email or listen to the phone, call that you get.
Sometimes, you'll want to take another step. Sometimes you'll simply say (and this is all you have to say) is, "I'm not interested in this. It doesn't sound like a worthwhile opportunity for me at this time. Thanks. You can stay in touch with other things. I'm not aggressively looking. But if you think there's something that makes sense, give me a call or send me an email." It's really that simple.
Because, again, if someone said to you and I'll use my own name, "Jeff, I have an opportunity for you to go on TV and be a reality star doing a pilot for show on TV, do you think I would hang up? No, of course, not. I would want to know more. I might audition; I might do more.
But if I wasn't interested, all I had to do is say, "you know, thank you. I'm very flattered that you reached out to me it doesn't seem like something I'd want to do."

What Are Some Good Ways to Turn Down a Counteroffer? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com


Listen to the full episode here
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2019/01/30/what-are-some-good-ways-to-turn-down-a-counteroffer-nobsjobsearchadvicecom

EP 1360  I describe a scenario that someone faces where they need to turn down a counteroffer… And it is very painful.

Summary

Someone wrote to me about how to best turn down a counteroffer and I am compelled to give you some texture to this so that you can understand the dilemma this person has.

The person is happy in their current job, but they were recruited by a foreign firm that offer them a salary double what they are currently earning.

Wow!

But we don't know if this is a $40,000 a year person who has been offered $80,000, a $100,000 a year person who has been offered $200,000… We have no sense of the numbers.

They really like the job and found it very interesting, they love the money and gave notice. At this point, the persons manager does their version of, "But why? We love you! Don't go! We need you! Don't do anything yet. I'm going to talk to my boss."

His boss is the owner of the firm and comes back to the job hunter (as I am recording this, it is November) and says to the job hunter, "we are going to be able to pay you much more (but not as much money as the other offers for)."

In the position with the foreign firm, the person can work from home, and double the money.

It is an interesting choice for the person but after some weighing alternatives, he or she has decided to turn down the counteroffer. What are some good ways to do this?

I want to address one detail head on. If this is the owner of the firm, what is going to change between now in November and December other than the fact that the other offer has been turned down. That will allow them to increase it then and not today?

I smell something unpleasant here but let's give him the benefit of the doubt.

You made a decision that you want to leave. Great. How do you turn down the counteroffer gracefully?

You sit down with your manager, you look them square in the ally and you say, "You know, I really spent a lot of time thinking about it and I decided that I am going to take the other offer and go."

Because you are responsive to the counteroffer, they may try to take another run at you to try to persuade you to stay.

"Wait! Don't do anything yet! I'm going to bring in the owner. He or she is going to make a different!"

You know, create a big drama to try to stop you.

So if and when this trauma occurs with the president of the firm, all I want you to calmly say is, "Look, I've no complaints about this firm. You guys have been great to me but this is my time to go. And if I discover that I made a mistake,.I will have weighed the alternatives and I will learn something from it."

They may turn around and try to exert pressure on you. Thus I want to remind you that you need to speak with a very calm tone, sounding like you are reflecting. "This is been a hard decision to make and I hear you. Please respect my choice."

"I'm giving 2 weeks notice. I'm sure you can find someone to do the job within 2 weeks. Just go out there and try; after all, there are people out there looking for work. I'm sure someone is qualified to do the job."

Just maintain your calm and, if for some reason, they get under your skin, PLEASE do not react. Do not be reactive and lashing out.

Try to maintain your cool and simply say, "Again, we are going around in a circle here. I have made up my mind. Please respect my choice."

Stand up. Shake their hands and leave.

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.
