How to Get on on Recruiter’s Radar | Job Search Radio


I discuss how to get on a recruiter’s radar.

Summary

So you've seen an ad and it's a roadmap for what they're looking for. Take a look at your resume and ask yourself, "How does that really match up? Does it match up? Do I have the experience, but my resume doesn't really express it well? I need to fix the resume." That's going to be the benchmark by which they go. You can also get on their radar by . . . There are going to be times where they are going to contact you and say, "Hey, I'm doing this with our client. Do you know someone?" and being supportive of them. If they get abusive, and one particular recruiter calls you every day four times a day for referrals, you just tell them, "This is getting to be a little too much. I'm willing to help but I'm not stupid. I've got a job to do. It is not putting money in your pocket. I'm willing to help but why don't you send an email with this information?

Now the true recruiter model,they are out there hunting for you. They're trying to find you. If you're working with at a level where they're going to be dealing with a contingency firm or an executive firm, that really doesn't matter. Part of it is you want them to find you. And there's a number of easy ways to do it.

Number one is you start being in situations where there it is publicity about you. So, for example, you've written a book, you have an article, there are a number of articles that you've written, a number of books. The firm that you are going to wind up looking for someone like that because they represent being an expert. In another instance. Let's say, you are not at that higher level where you're an author and publishing deal with a major publisher. Another thing you can do you speak at conferences. You know, you can be part of a program for a trade group where you are presenting on a subject. It doesn't have to be the most sophisticated presentation but understand they'll find you through Google.

Another way is your LinkedIn profile. There are recruiters who operate at that level who are looking through LinkedIn and you need to demonstrate a keyword rich LinkedIn profile where they are finding you based on your experiences. They are seeing things in the profile such as articles that you've written for LinkedIn, connections to podcasts where you have been interviewed or perhaps PowerPoints on SlideShare that help firms recognize and help recruiters recognize I should say that you're not the average individual. By doing these powerpoints and putting them up on SlideShare and connecting them to your LinkedIn profile, it's a great way to stand out from the pack and and demonstrate that you are an expert.

Have a Web site where you have your resume. Have a blog on that Web site where you talk about, not your family but professional matters. These were all great ways for discovery to occur because, understand a real headhunter is help, they are trying to find you and they are looking looking for people in ways, did not trying to find you on LinkedIn most of the time.
They may use LinkedIn to correlate, but they are using Google to try to find people who will impress their clients, just by the fact that there is PR about them they presented . . . a whole host of things along these lines.

So I want you to think of your career as a business and, in doing so, when you look at what businesses do to be discovered, you know, it's not just the advertising that they do because there are a lot of places that don't advertise that you go to, right?

Just because you've seen them in the neighborhood that you're buying. After all, the first time shopped on Amazon you never heard of them before. You had no idea what to expect. You went to Amazon, had a great experience. Again, you went to Amazon to be discovered and put yourself in the position to be discovered. That will go a long way toward being discovered by third party recruiters.

And again, if you're working with the agency level with someone who only response so resumes that are sent to them, remember your resume just has to demonstrate the fit and then they will be happy to help.

Building Charisma | No BS Job Search Advice Radio

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses the importance of charisma when you interview and explains how you can increase yours.

Summary

I want to talk with you today about building charisma.  If you know some of my work, you know that I believe that there are certain number of qualities that firms look for when they hire. Competence is one.  Self-confidence, character, chemistry, CHARISMA… All of which add up for me as personal leadership. How do you add to your charisma? Why is charisma important? Often, it is a huge differentiator between one candidate and another, and it draws people in, emotionally when you interview.

Today, I want to help you work on your charisma By building some of the techniques that will allow you to be more charismatic in interviews.

The 1st thing is preparation.  An unprepared person who is "winging it," has a degree of uncertainty about them.  You cannot be uncertain when you interview.  You have to display complete mastery of the subject on an interview.  So, you have to take the time to prepare.  After all, athletes do it.  The greats do it.  Do you think A public speaker hasn't walked out and rehearsed that speech before they have given it? Why do you believe that you can just "wing it" and do well on every interview that you do? Even if you are not hired, you want to create positive impressions because you never know when you will run into these folks again.

Preparation is a huge part of presenting yourself in a charismatic way.  Another thing is asking great questions.  If you just arrived with little more than superficial questions, you are not going to draw them into you.  One of my beliefs, and I've said this in another video I've done, is that the more they talk, the more they like you. You want to get them talking as much as possible Because of their belief becomes that you are interested.  While they are talking, you want to appear completely engaged in what you are listening to.

You'll find this next one comes hand-in-hand with energy.  Energetic people present themselves in charismatic ways and people who use their hands when they talk also appear charismatic.  In using your hands to speak, I want to be clear that you never block your face.  You go to about middle-of-the-chin level when you use your hands because anything that you do to block your face becomes distracting. But keeping it to about middle of the chin level, no higher, emphasizes points and, thus, demonstrate greater strength and passion for what you do.

That brings us to passion.  I know it's easier to be passionate about things that you love, whether it's hobbies or family that you have huge joy about.  However, you have to demonstrate about your career, too.  Being passionate as you talk about your work is incredibly important.

Finally, optimism.  People are not drawn to, people are not magnetic, if they send down and pessimistic.  If you talk to downers, don't you just want to get away from them?  Downers – – people who are completely negative, point fingers at others, complain, piss and moan (Excuse my language, folks)… You want to be someone who draws people into you, who has a magnetic quality… That's what charisma is all about.  That backdated quality that makes you attractive to others.

Employing some of these techniques is a huge way of making people want to hire you because they want to be around you.  Being flat, being dull, speaking in a monotone for 30 minutes just makes people want to go to sleep.  Is that what you want to do?  Of course, not.  You want to be that charismatic individual that, even if they turn down, it's hard for them to turn you down because they really like you
