My Story and Why This Book is for You
I have been working in the recruiting industry as an Executive Search Consultant and Career Coach since 2004, but something happened in 2015 that completely changed how I worked, literally overnight.
A Digital Marketing Manager came to me as a client after failing to get a job. He had searched for a year and could barely get a call for a job interview. Before I started his job search campaign, I checked his LinkedIn.com profile to make sure it looked good.
His LinkedIn profile was absolutely horrifying.
The picture was a selfie that looked like a mugshot following a police interrogation. His profile had too much information that was irrelevant to his goals, his headline was meaningless, and he only had 24 connections. There was no way I could position someone that was supposed to be an expert in digital marketing with this repellent LinkedIn profile.
My client was absolutely desperate for job.
He was a nice guy and a good job candidate with a lot of related experience. I used to just give online profile tips but I knew time was of the essence and I needed to take control of his online image immediately.
I got his logins for LinkedIn and other online job boards to re-align everything.
Within 48 hours he had over 300 Linkedin connections and one job interview. By the end of the week, he had four job interviews and had hit the 500+ connection mark and …
He had not applied for a single job! Not one!
All the job interviews he got were from his online profiles. This method is now the core of my career coaching practice.
So what is the secret? It is just one phrase: Keyword-stacking.
Once you learn how to keyword-stack your profiles, you will get calls too.

Don’t Put These 5 Things in Your Resume

Share

Executive resumes deserve just as much attention as a resume for any other job. You may be surprised to know most resumes for executive positions are generally poorly done. However, that just gives you the opportunity to shine brightly when it comes to your resume! Your executive bio needs to stand out from the rest. Most importantly, it needs to be error-free and you need to avoid putting some things in it altogether. We’ve compiled a list of five common, but unnecessary, things people put in their executive resumes.

Too Wordy
As an executive, you likely have many accomplishments and all of them are important to you. However, if you put too much on your resume, recruiters may stop reading it and move on to the next one. The best executive resume writers will include two or three key points to highlight skills and then move on. Think concise. Ask yourself, “Does this need to be on here?” You don’t want to overwhelm recruiters on paper.

Omitting Keywords
In today’s digital world, most resumes are scanned online for specific keywords pertaining to the job. Sometimes the keywords are more important than the substance in the resume. Look at the job description and use a lot of the words they use to describe the job. If you need help identifying specific keywords, you can always reach out to an executive resume service for assistance.

Focusing Too Much on Job Descriptions
Talk briefly about your job duties at your past jobs, but focus more on what you accomplished in those roles. Everyone can describe what they did at a particular job, but highlighting how well you did your job looks much better on paper.

Not Highlighting Achievements
This is where you need to use numbers and percentages to show how you made an impact in your previous jobs. Your executive bio will be much stronger if you say you “increased sales by 40 percent over 12 months” rather than just saying you “helped boost sales.” Be specific about your achievements so your next employer knows what you have to offer before you even step foot in their office.

Not Targeting Your Prospective Employer
Having a generic resume may be fine if you’re applying for a lower level position, but you need to do a little more work upfront for an executive level position. Do some research about the job and company you’re applying to. Identify how you can help them and include those points in your resume. The best executive resume writers will focus more on how they can help potential hirers, rather than what they’ve done in the past.

Does Your Cover Letter Let You Down

Share

Getting that competitive advantage in a crowded job market can be a challenge. One of the best tools you have outside of your Resume is a compelling Cover Letter that has fresh, engaging content that clearly outlines why you are the best fit for the role.

This is the perfect opportunity to present to the Recruiter or Hiring Manager a number of compelling reasons why you should move to the next stage of the process, an interview.

Ensure you have read and understood the role requirements and what is needed to succeed and put forward why you, meet and exceed those key requirements.

Nothing captures the attention of a Recruiter or Hiring Manager more than a well-tailored document highlighting why you, as a potential employee meet those requirements. Also, provide some specific examples in the document.

While this may take some time to complete, the investment can be worth it, regardless if you undertake the document yourself, or get a professional service provider to undertake the work for you.

Don’t leave a Recruiter or Hiring Manager to read between the lines in your Resume, put forward why you meet the requirements and what you will bring to the role – be clear on the value you will add to the business.

A couple of key things to consider:

Spelling and Grammar: check your spelling and grammar (get a trusted friend to review your document or use a resume service provider such as Resumes to you).

Content: ensure your content is fresh, exciting and not a simple copy and past of your resume content.

Format: format your document in a standard professional layout. Your cover letter is a first impression and you want to make the right impact. If it’s badly formatted, it could negatively impact your chances.

Personalise your cover letter: If you know the recruiters name, address the letter to them. Add the name and address of the company and add the position name as the reference. (personalising your cover letter will have a positive impact).

Double check: Before you hit send, make sure you have attached the correct documents, especially when sending. Sending an application for a job addressed to the wrong company or recruiter could kill your chances. It looks unprofessional, sloppy, and demonstrates lack of care or attention to detail.

Fixing an issue: If you send an application and suddenly realise that you have sent an incorrect document, don’t forget about it… contact the recruiter and inform them that you have sent the wrong document and arrange to send the correct items – you’ll be surprised how this can work for you.

There are other things to consider, based on your needs when developing a cover letter.

One of the best investments you can make is to have your cover letter reviewed and, if needed, professionally rewritten to improve your chances in a competitive and crowded market.

If you have errors or your document is poorly written, that could cost you dearly during your application process, so checking these few items could make all the difference.

Winning the Interview

Share

Some people think that preparing for a job interview is fairly simple. Once you get the call to come in for one you essentially have the job unless you blow the interview. This is not to disrespect Walmart or McDonald’s but unless you are applying for a company like that, the interview process is not easy at all. In fact, getting the interview more times than not is easier than the actual interview itself. This pillar post is going to be for my viewers that are looking for a full-time job and hopefully it’s a highly looked at company.

The first step is having a great resume. There are plenty of good examples on the internet for samples but those are also mixed in with bad ones. Some keys things that you want in your resume are; having as many numbers as possible. It’s much more eye opening for an employer to see you raised over $10,000 in revenue during your 8 week internship than saying you raised a lot of money. Another thing is to make sure the formatting is done correctly. Make sure that everything lines up nicely and that you stay consistent on your word usage such as tenses. Also make sure to use a different starting word for the description of your prior positions. Then there are the more basic things such as make sure there are no spelling or grammar mistakes because that can instantly lose you an interview chance. LinkedIn is similar to your resume but where your resume should only include your most important and relevant things since it should only be a single full page, your LinkedIn page should include everything you’ve done. It should be a page that an employer can visit and see where you went to school, what you did there, how you did there, strengths, weaknesses, and any jobs you had up to this point.

Now if a company has asked you to come in for an interview, this is where you start researching that company. Everyone has many strengths and weaknesses, but this is where you need to see the companies values and what not and tie your best strengths to those values. It’s also where if you have a weakness of time management and their biggest thing is to have great time management, that’s a weakness you shouldn’t bring up. This next part isn’t always possible but now a days companies will let you know who you are interviewing with or it is the HR recruiter who told you that you have an interview. This is where you should look up the interviewer on LinkedIn, connect with them and learn some things about them. That way you can ask them questions more directed at them at the end of the interview. You should also ask your recruiter what specific position you are interviewing for so that you can plan accordingly for that one. Now it’s time for the dress code during an interview. Almost every job will want you to come in dressed business professional.

Even if they don’t say it, a common saying in business is that it is better to be overdressed than under dressed. For those who don’t know, business professional is a suit collared button down shirt with a suit jacket that matches the dress pants and a tie. I understand you might not already have a suit or that you don’t have the money to buy one. Some companies might understand and in that case you can just come in business casual which is business professional but without the suit jacket. If the company insists you be business professional which is understandable as you might need a suit during your job, such as if you’re visiting a client or on a company dinner. Then a possible substitute is to get one from Goodwill as they usually have an okay selection of them and can actually still be in pretty good condition. This is of course like a flat tire where it should only last you until you have the money to replace it with a real suit.

Now before the interview you should know exactly where the interview is happening at and any more specifics like if it’s in a specific room. If you are supposed to arrive at 10:00AM, leave so that you get there anytime from 8:00AM – 9:00AM. This will leave you plenty of time in case you get stuck in traffic, lost, or need to stop for something. The great part about getting there early is that you can continue to practice for the interview. One way of practicing is by looking up common asked interview questions so that you can be more confident going into the interview.

Now during the interview you’re going to want to shake every persons hand in the room whether there are two people or twenty. With the handshake make sure to have a firm grasp and go directly in, not from an upper angle or lower angle. Seems petty but some people think if you are coming in for the handshake from an upper angle, it’s you trying to show dominance. When shaking hands make sure to look the person in the eyes and introduce yourself. Then when you begin your interview make sure to calm yourself down. This will help you not to ramble on answers and or forget answers. If the interviewer asks a tough question, you don’t have to respond right away. Ask them if you can take a second to think about the answer. Most interviewers will like that you are willing to think first instead of going right into the answer. After the interview, the interviewer will ask if you have any questions. NEVER SAY NO! That can ruin your entire interview because most interviewers are waiting for questions and asking none can leave them with a bad taste in their mouth. Make sure to have 2-3 pre-planned questions and then try to think of 2-3 questions during the interview. That way you can easily ask three or four questions. After you’re done with questions make sure to shake everyone’s hand again and thank them for their time. If you do all of these things correctly, there shouldn’t be a single employer who won’t hire you.

Play the Odds When Looking for a Job

Share

By Gordon Walter

You’ve spent a ton of time surfing various Internet Job Boards and responded to dozens of job ads.  Some of them you were seemingly a perfect fit for what they wanted.  Why didn’t the phone ring?  Why weren’t you invited for an interview?  Following are some reasons:

Most positions are filled through networking.

Though it can seem like you are working hard to find a new job, numerous sources say that networking is where the overwhelming majority of people find a new position.  Job boards are great and have a place in the mix of job searching tools in the 21st century.  Candidates often spend most of their time jumping from website-to-website sending resumes with a click of a mouse.  But in reality, they should be focusing the majority of time in building/working their network.  I am not a gambler but you must go with the odds in this situation.  Invest time where most likely to get a favorable outcome and the odds are in your favor.

Your resume does not survive the screening process.   

Virtually all organizations of any size are using resume screening software to screen digital resumes before they are passed along to a person for review.  This is not some diabolical plot to keep you from being hired, but results from several factors, including:  1. Due to the Internet, more people are able to learn of open positions than ever before.  2. Employers must use tools to help manage the wave of respondents.  3. The cost of such screening software has steadily come down and use by employers steadily increased.  The foundation of such software is keywords.  Resumes most closely reflecting the keyword list get a higher ranking.  Unless your resume is constructed with keywords in mind, it may be bounced from the process despite using a wonderful format, excellent prose, or even a great graphic.

You took too long to apply.

Most job board ads include the number of days since the posting first appeared.  A good rule of thumb is that if the job was posted more than three days ago, it is probably too late.  Sure, there are lots of exceptions.  It could be that your qualifications are so exceptional; your resume cannot be ignored.   Or it could be that for a variety of reasons few people are applying for the position.  But most candidates should not bother responding to a job ad that was posted a week ago and certainly more than 30 days ago.

Social media accounts work against you.

The ebb and flow of communication is a completely natural thing for many people.  They do not think twice about interacting formally and informally to life situations from a totally in-the-moment perspective.  Many employers conduct searches of the social media accounts of job candidates before even contacting them.  Is there anything in the cache of photos or posts in your social media world that is less than professional?  That does not reflect the best “you” to a potential employer?  Candidates need to carefully assess and scrub such social media accounts prior to beginning a job search.  Failure to do so could result in unknowingly hurting your chances of being hired.

Networking, networking, and again networking.

In case you missed it earlier, networking is key to finding a new position.  Even in this digital age, it is an undeniable fact.  Why?  One reason is that employers want to avoid the masses and would rather hire upon the recommendation of employees or other trusted sources.  Doing so can result in a drastically reduced Cost Per Hire and finding qualified people more quickly.  So all the more important is time spent working your network.    LinkedIn is a powerful networking tool that should not be ignored.  Building your network within the context of LI can result in the job finding you as employers troll member profiles looking for qualified candidates.  Absolutely love it when that happens.

Take charge.

Focus on things you can control.  Do not ignore realities or buck trends.  Learn how to write resumes based upon keywords or seek the help of a professional resume writer.  Spend time building and working your network.  Scrub your Internet presence.  If not sure how to proceed, ask someone.  The odds are that the resumes you sent will not return void.  The odds are that you will get interviews.  The odds are you will find a reliable and rewarding career job.  Please play the odds.

Sell Your Transferable Skills

Share

By Gordon Walter 

Though employment levels are rapidly improving, the competition for those jobs is often fierce.  Whether it is a seasonal job, an internship, or a full-time career position, employers are frequently surprised by the number of respondents to their advertising.  Make it easier for the hiring manager to see that you possess the skills they need.  Do this by identifying those skills (e.g., by looking for them in job advertising for the same or similar positions), and then selling them through your resume and cover letter.  Following is a list of the most popular skill areas sought by employers having broad application to multiple careers, jobs, etc.:

  1. Problem-Solving. People who can identify problems, find solutions and make decisions are needed in such fields as business administration, management consulting, public administration, science, medicine and engineering.
  1. Technical.  Technology is advanced in all industries.  Installation, testing and repair of electrical, electronic and mechanical equipment in fields such as engineering, telecommunications, and transportation requires people with advanced vocational-technical skills.
  2. People Relations.  Often, the success of a company depends upon how well people work together. It is the job of managers and administrators to understand people needs and how best to meet those needs within the confines of the employment environment.
  3. Computer Programming.  It almost goes without saying that understanding how to harness a computer’s power and programming it to meet the specific needs of a particular company can dramatically increase your employment options.
  4. Ability to Teach and Train.  We develop and collect more new data in a day than our ancestors did in a year.  As a result, there continues to be demand for people with teaching and training skills in the fields of education, social services, management and general commerce.
  5. Science and Math.  Great advances are made each day in the fields of science, medicine and engineering.  People skilled in the sciences and math are needed to provide support by doing computational tasks and analysis in these fields.
  6. Money Management.  It is essential to carefully plan and manage personal finances.  Investment brokers, security officers, retirement planners, accountants and CPAs require support staff with these skills to help meet this need.
  7. Information Management.  Knowledge is now seen as a major contributor to our economy, and individuals who possess the ability to manage information are critical. Systems analysts, information technologists, database administrators, knowledge managers, and telecommunication engineers are examples of positions utilizing information management skills.
  8. Language.  Organizations depend upon people with the ability to speak a number of languages.  Spanish and German have long been taught by many schools.  Having this skill can enhance your employment opportunities and compensation.
  9. Management.  Understanding how to run a company is in demand.  The ability to manage people, systems, resources and finances; to understand the needs of consumers and translating those needs into business opportunities is required by organizations large and small.
  10. Reliability.  Showing up for work on a regular basis is a very desirable trait.  If you historically had good attendance, and/or recognized for being a dependable contributor, do not be bashful about mentioning it in resume and cover letter content.

Perhaps you have skills on this list from work performed for volunteer jobs.  Do not be shy about including them in your resume.  Be creative and study job descriptions of positions to which you might apply.  Also, do not forget “softer” skills and attributes, such as listening and relationship building.  These never go out-of-style, and may give you the edge over another candidate when appropriately communicated.

10 Good Ways to ‘Tell Me About Yourself’

Share

By Scott Ginsberg 

You know it’s coming.

It’s the most feared question during any job interview: Do you think I would look good in a cowboy hat?

Just kidding. The real question is: Can you tell me about yourself?

Blecch. What a boring, vague, open-ended question. Who likes answering that?

I know. I’m with you. But unfortunately, hiring managers and executive recruiters ask the question. Even if you’re not interviewing and you’re out networking in the community — you need to be ready to hear it and answer it. At all times.

Now, before I share a list of 10 memorable answers, consider the two essential elements behind the answers:

The medium is the message. The interviewer cares less about your answer to this question and more about the confidence, enthusiasm and passion with which you answer it.

The speed of the response is the response. The biggest mistake you could make is pausing, stalling or fumbling at the onset of your answer, thus demonstrating a lack of self-awareness and self-esteem.

Next time you’re faced with the dreaded, “Tell me about yourself…” question, try these:

  1. “I can summarize who I am in three words.” Grabs their attention immediately. Demonstrates your ability to be concise, creative and compelling.
  2. “The quotation I live my life by is…” Proves that personal development is an essential part of your growth plan. Also shows your ability to motivate yourself.
  3. “My personal philosophy is…” Companies hire athletes – not shortstops. This line indicates your position as a thinker, not just an employee.
  4. “People who know me best say that I’m…” This response offers insight into your own level of self-awareness.
  5. “Well, I googled myself this morning, and here’s what I found…” Tech-savvy, fun, cool people would say this. Unexpected and memorable.
  6. “My passion is…” People don’t care what you do – people care who you are. And what you’re passionate about is who you are. Plus, passion unearths enthusiasm.
  7. “When I was seven years old, I always wanted to be…” An answer like this shows that you’ve been preparing for this job your whole life, not just the night before.
  8. “If Hollywood made a move about my life, it would be called…” Engaging, interesting and entertaining.
  9. “Can I show you, instead of tell you?” Then, pull something out of your pocket that represents who you are. Who could resist this answer? Who could forget this answer?
  10. “The compliment people give me most frequently is…” Almost like a testimonial, this response also indicates self-awareness and openness to feedback.

Keep in mind that these examples are just the opener. The secret is thinking how you will follow up each answer with relevant, interesting and concise explanations that make the already bored interviewer look up from his stale coffee and think, “Wow! That’s the best answer I’ve heard all day!”

Ultimately it’s about answering quickly, it’s about speaking creatively and it’s about breaking people’s patterns.

I understand your fear with such answers. Responses like these are risky, unexpected and unorthodox. And that’s exactly why they work.

Otherwise you become (yet another) non-entity in the gray mass of blah, blah, blah.

You’re hireable because of your answers. When people ask you to tell them about yourself, make them glad they asked.

Let me ask you this: How much time did you dedicate this week to becoming more interesting? Let me suggest this: For the list called, “61 Stupid Things to Stop Doing Before It’s Too Late,” send an e-mail to me, and you win it for free!

Job Search 101: Mindfulness

Share
Recommend ArticlePrint Article

Expert Author Ramona L. Clay Most people don’t take the time to think about their careers and plan accordingly.  Oftentimes, the focus is on “Getting The Job!”  Very few, strategically, think about how and why someone will hire them; as a result, many apply to jobs they have not a chance of getting – wasting time and energy. Mindfulness of one’s actions will guide one to the right solutions.

Case in point: Going to a job fair offers a lot of possibilities; however, success comes to those who are mindful and strategic.  Most Companies list the jobs they are recruiting for and someone will, inevitably, walk up and say “what are you hiring for?”  How much time would it take to really research the companies before you go to the job fair?  Come up with a game plan; so that when you approached the company representative – you have something of value to say. There is a process to the madness.  It is important to show “Mindfulness” if you’re serious about getting a job.

Oftentimes, companies develop a series of pre-screening questions to evaluate candidates who submit resumes.  It eliminates wasting time looking at candidates who are not qualified.  Some of the pre-screening questions may include years of experience; education; industry, etc.  The pre-requirements may be specific or general – depending on the position.  That is why it is so important to be mindful of the job you are applying for because the higher your resume ranks in skills and experience; the better the chances of you being called and considered for a position.  To avoid the “black-hole” affect “thoroughly” read the job description.

As a recruiter, I usually do not go below 80% of pre-screening assessments.  Companies can be selective because there are hundreds of applicants applying for the same position.  The larger the company the more competitive the position; so being mindful of how your skills and experience match-up with the job description is important.

Consider your skills and experience; working at a large corporation is equivalent to a university or college level playing field – you got to be good.  They are looking for premier candidates; most positions are highly-skilled and targeted in a specific niche or industry.  No longer do large corporations provide the training & nurturing like they did in the past.  They have colleges, universities, and trade schools to do that; however, they will offer internships to students, but they are looking for students who can perform well in both the workplace and school.

Mindfulness is also about being realistic.  It is similar to a truck driver applying for a position as a Product Designer.  He became so upset that no one got back to him that he called the Vice President and President of the company.  Of course, they were upset that no one got back to him, but when they realized the reality of the situation – that was it!

If you are seeking employment without a lot of experience or training; medium to small businesses are a perfect place to build your experience.  You can maximize your visibility and skills.  Most small to medium firms do not have the stringent hiring requirements that large corporations have; including getting hired quicker.  Most small to medium firms may not be at job fairs or post online because of budget constraint.  One has to be aware of local companies in their area.  There are openings all around us – the key is strategically being Mindful of these opportunities.
