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.

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.

FROM THE ARCHIVES

NOTE: THE NAME OF THE EZINE IS NOW, “NO BS COACHING ADVICE.”


Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter offers an easy to follow strategy to help you stand out from the pack on LinkedIn.

Summary

Today, I want to talk with you about this simple strategy to stand out from people on LinkedIn.

The hard thing to do on LinkedIn is differentiating yourself from others. There are so many hundreds of millions of people on LinkedIn right now. With so many recruiters both agency and corporate recruiters searching, they are going to LinkedIn to find talent. How do you stand out?

Obviously, you have to write a great profile; I'm not going to talk with you about that today. I'm going to talk with you about using the feature that will help you look good when someone finds your profile. The feature that I'm referring to is endorsements.

Endorsements are different than the testimonials that have been around for years. Testimonials of those long, long descriptions of how wonderful human being you are, written by someone who knows you very well. They are like LinkedIn's version of a traditional reference. If you have someone write a testimonial for you . Who doesn't know you very well, it stinks. You don't want to have anyone right one for you. Who doesn't know your work very well.

Endorsements, on the other hand, is a function where you or they can select the option that you possess that they believe you should be endorsed for. All they have to do is click the checkbox. What is the impression is created if someone has no endorsements? What is the impression created if someone has 150 endorsements? Or 500+ endorsements? Or lots and lots of endorsements for different attributes?

If you go to my LinkedIn profile, you can search for my name (the headline under my name now says, "Helping People and Companies Play Big! Let Me Coach You."), What you will see is a whole bunch of endorsements of people and given to me.

I know recruiters aren't thought very highly of and I did that kind of work for more than 40 years. When you see someone like me with lots and lots of endorsements, that is unusual. Don't you think I wanted more me than someone who might have no endorsements? Or 2? Or 12? Of course you do.

Both with my brand, The Big Game Hunter, and with strategic use of endorsements and testimonials on LinkedIn and on my website.

What you want to be doing is asking people who you are connected to, you know you professionally and personally, to endorse you for something that you do or have done and have strong skills. You do this not once or twice but repeatedly, particularly when you're not actively looking for work, will cause you to stand out.

The truth is you want people to be reaching out to you, not when you are looking for a job, desperate, out of work and looking for work. You want people reaching out to you when you are a "happy camper."

Why do I say that? It's really simple. Employers have a bias toward people who are working and who they perceive are not actively looking for work. That bias causes them to value those people at a higher level than the person that they find the job board. Third-party recruiters think the same thing, too. It's amazing! I could go into detail about why it's ridiculous, but, the long and the short of it is, what you want to do is be found. You want to be found by organizations there looking on LinkedIn and thinking that you are not someone who is actively looking for work and thought a very highly. That "thought a very highly part" comes from endorsements and testimonials on LinkedIn.

So, if you have friends, if you are connected to people who are willing to do you a favor, ask them to endorse you, not write a testimonial for you. You will start noticing that the number of people reaching out to you to connect will start to take off.

NOTE: THE NAME OF THE ZINE IS NOW, "NO BS COACHING ADVICE."

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.

What do firms look for? Competence is only one thing. Everyone forgets about the other big thing. Here, I remind you.

Summary

The thing you're forgetting about in your interviews. I've talked to john hunters. I've talked to people I coach about this for years. It's not just simply about career coaching or job search coaching. It's in a lot of other venues in life that this really shows up.
What is it that you're forgetting about?
What you're forgetting about . . . It's not school where you're being graded on having the right answers, at least not all of it. The thing that you're forgetting about is that it's not who has the most answers or the most right answers who wins. It's the one who has the most right answers, who gives them a feeling that they can be believed and trusted. So, it's your ability to inspire confidence that you can help them that becomes so important and, unless you do that, you're competing with everyone else who's trying to get 100% on the test.
And how did that work for you in school? Some of you got great grades. That's terrific. And now that you're in the world of work, you understand that there's another dimension that's there.
The person who gets chosen for the plum assignment because they're friendly with your boss, the person who gets pushed out the door because everyone thinks they're incompetent even when they aren't.
So, I want to remind you, it's not about your grade on the interview. It's about your ability to inspire confidence that are the solution to what they need, . . . which is a feeling. It's a feeling that comes about, not because you got all the right answers, but how you carry yourself as a professional, how you carry yourself in the interviews, how you handle yourself throughout all your interactions with them that makes all the difference in the world.
So, don't forget that and let it show up in quote unquote the theater . . . the theater of interviewing. You are a performance artist on the stage, trying to give them that feeling. And if you don't like it, tough. That's the way of the world, folks.
And if you don't like it, adapt, try my way. I know it works because, after all, I filled so many positions in my career as a headhunter. I know this extra dimension makes all the difference in the world.
So, don't neglect it. Don't forget about it. Don't ignore.

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

What to Do If No One Is Getting Back To You | JobSearchTV.com

I was coaching someone yesterday who was invited for an interview but the company wasn’t getting back to him to schedule the appointment. What do I do to get them to talk to me?

Summary

I was coaching someone yesterday who pose this situation to me and was looking for advice about how to handle it. You see, he'd been contacted by a corporate recruiter to schedule an interview for him with her. The scenario was one, "please give me a couple of dates and times for your availability." He responded quickly and then . . . nothing. First, he offered Wednesday which was (I think it was Monday they got the email). He offered Wednesday and Friday.

Wednesday came and went. Nothing. Friday comes and goes. Nothing. He reaches out on LinkedIn. The connection request is accepted almost immediately. He knows the recruiter's around but she's not responding. He messages her again. Nothing.

We all know that this does not have a happy ending. However, in my mind, what I'm thinking is that from the time of the invitation, there's a final interview going on. And I'm thinking to myself, you know, she made a mistake in inviting him. But there's a final going on and they're waiting for the results. He is a backup person.

However, the question is, no one's getting back to me. How do I find out what's going on? How do I flush up the situation? Now, I've used I use this a million times when I worked in recruiting. And again, just to remind you, I now coach people. So, I look at scenarios and offer suggestions for how to resolve them. In this particular case, here is the resolution. Here is the idea that I have.

Send an email to them and the subject line would say, "Are you okay?"

The body of the email would have the original invitation for the interview, but then it would start off by saying, "you know, I received this invitation from you." Then, there's the invite for the interview.

Then, it continues below to say, "and I responded to schedule an appointment and, so far, I haven't heard anything back from you. It's almost two weeks (and here's the here's the final piece, ready). Are you okay?"

You're not asking about the interview. You're just asking if the person's okay. This works because it's kind of embarrassing to have someone concerned about you and you're not responding. So, now, that you sense that they're worried, you feel compelled to say, "No, no, I'm okay." Then, they offer the explanation for what's going on.

That's what happened. 15 minutes after he sends the email to the recruiter. he gets a message from him saying, " You are a genius. It worked like a charm." It was exactly what you thought. There was a final interview going on. And I don't understand why she invited him onto the calendar. she had to have scheduled this interview.

So, I'll simply say that, when push comes to shove, if you're not getting calls back from corporate recruiters and a while has going by and you're not getting a call from an agency recruiter, the message that says, "are you okay," and just summarizing what's happened. I'll give a typical example.

You called me about this role. I haven't heard anything back from You. I've called a couple of times. I've emailed a few times. "Are you okay," usually will get someone to surface because they don't want someone to think that there's something wrong with them.

Networking Advice from “The Godfather” About Reciprocity | JobSearchRadio.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/03/15/networking-advice-from-the-godfather-about-reciprocity/

Ep 261 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter uses a quote from the movie, “the Godfather” to illustrate the importance of reciprocity when networking.

Summary

(Speaking like the Godfather) "I've done you this favor.. Someday I will ask you for a favor, and you will not refuse me." That's Marlon Brando in, "The Godfather." He is speaking with the funeral home director.

You keep reaching out to people all the time to network. Suddenly, someone reaches out to you who has been helpful to you and you act in an almost indignant manner.

Get over it! You're asking people for favors and they are entitled to ask you from for favors, too.

Recognize there is supposed to be reciprocity and networking. Just remember the advice from the Godfather. "I done you this favor. Someday I will ask you a favor and you shall not refuse me." And they are right to ask you for the favor. You've asked them and they had been helpful to you.

Come on! Be generous. If you want to advance professionally, if you want to find work, not just simply in this search, but throughout your career, don't burn your relationships. Make sure that you are always there being generous with what you offer, so that this way you can turn around to someone and say that line.

"I've done you this favor. Someday I'll ask you…" You get the idea.
