Executive Networking Mistakes

Executive Networking Mistakes | Job Search Radio

EP 413 on today show,I discuss the second biggest mistake executives make in their approach to networking.

Summary

As someone who's been in the search business for what seems like 100 years, I run into executives all the time who commit many many mistakes with their job search. And I did a another video about the #1 mistake I see executives making, Other people do this well, but executives doing it prolifically.

Here is another one mistake that executives make and the real big one here is that you don't network! Really that simple.

You so immersed in your job that you don't take time on a regular basis to build relationships. Now, if you watching this video or listening to this podcast, you may be immersed in a job search. So it may be to late to head off this problem. But, I want you to think that after you get this position, while you doing this search, you always take time to network.

"You know, I'm too busy."

Well now you're not busy because you are out of work and do you want to be out of work or do you want to be able to easily activate the #1 way that people find positions and that is an effective network.

As I said in mistake #1, lurching from networking and networking only when you need people, shows you as a mooch. That all you care about is yourself. Building relationships that come between the interview cycles when you were there to help people, where you are available to offer advice, where you can be a mentor to others in their searches and where offerleads to people graciously, not as though they're dragging it out of you, will go a long way toward setting you up in the next search.

So, again, don't lurch from networking situation to networking situation while you learned from search to search. Always be networking.

Stupid Resume Mistakes: Showing Markups​ | Job Search Radio

EP 433 I speak about a stupid resume mistake that can embarrass you and cause you to be immediately rejected

Summary

This is 1 of those stupid resume mistakes; I suspect they'll have a playlist of them shortly. This was just so funny.

Someone sent a resume to me a few minutes ago applying for a fairly senior role. I opened the resume up and every correction to his resume that he is ever made is there. I'm staring at all the dates that he is changed to cover up a previous employer. I'm watching all the changes that he made 2 tenses and just makes them look stupid. I'm seeing all the things these crossed out to find certain experiences that he thinks about be interested in. He's right. I wasn't interested in. Had he not show me the markup, I never would've known.

I just want to remind you that there is a function in Microsoft Word . . . You can find it at VIEW==> SHOW MARKUPS. You don't want to send out a resume were person will receive it, open it and see all the changes that you made. It is just so embarrassing when they say to you, "we were interested in talking with you but so that you work with the company and crossed it out. What was that all about?"

How do you explain that one folks? How do you think you can explain that one?

Training Camp | No BS Job Search Advice Radio

Training Camp | No BS Job Search Advice Radio

EP 925 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter talks about the importance of training camp for athletes and job hunters. 

Summary

Today, I want to offer you some no BS job should drive that is designed to help you really catapulted job search and wind up crossing the finish line a lot faster. Today's advice is really simple.

Let's start off with a scenario. Can you imagine a pro football team or pro basketball team or baseball team that doesn't practice and just shows up and wins? Can you imagine them avoiding trading him and just showed up that 1st Monday of the season and performing well? Can you imagine lots of injuries, lots of guys getting hurt. A lot of women on the basketball court winding up a pulled muscles? Can you imagine this team having a great record and winning a championship ? Frankly, I can't.

Yet this is how a lot of job hunters conduct themselves. They just show up for an interview, they expect to do well and are sharp when they don't. They are shocked when they don't get the job. It's no different. It's really no different for you as a job hunter. You need to get out there and practice. You need to practice with someone else. You need to rehearse your answers to the point where they'll say unrehearsed because otherwise you are nothing more than that athlete who expects the shop on Sunday, having done no practice and expects to win.

I understand in team sports that the other members of the team may carry this person for a given week. Let me give individual sports example. On the tennis court, can you imagine a tennis player who doesn't practice winning many titles? Frankly, I can't imagine it. I don't care if they are visualizing all the time that Paul going over the net and landing the perfect placement, that they are imagining all those overheads that they are smashing or those lobs that land in the perfect spot... It just doesn't work. They have to practice; they have to keep their muscles limber. Time and time again, they have to, over hours and hours of practice, actually hit the ball. You walk into the arena of a job interview unrehearsed, unpracticed and unprepared. Unprepared with no research. Unprepared to answer obvious questions. Unrehearsed for the entire thing.

Let me give you a joke from another YouTube video.

Stop it! There is a Bob Newhart video called, "Stop It!" Go watch it sometime. I think it is hysterical.

I'll simply say stop doing the things that are getting into trouble. You are acting like an amateur when you do that. Get out and do a professionals do. Professionals don't walk into meetings and wing it. They have spent years getting ready. They walk out onto the practice field, they walk into the arena of the game in the stadium and they are practiced. They are at peak condition at just that moment, ready to perform. You need to do much the same sort of thing and get your muscles ready, and your plays down pat so that, in this way, you can nail it.

Now, there's a difference between being well practiced being over rehearsed. I've been watching this 1 series called, "The Next Food Channel Celebrity." 1 of the finalists there is someone who seems to well prepared that they don't connect with people. That is the feedback that she's been getting time and time again. She seems really good and really talented, but is too prepared. There is a fine line when you crossover and just missed the connection that you have to make with people..

Don't over rehearse to the point where you sound canned and phony. You have to always make it seem as though that this is the 1st time that you are saying these words, even if it is the 400th.

Again, practice. Prepare. Rehearse. Sailed wonderful. Send like you talking to your best friend on the other side of the desk.

Job Hunting as an Introvert | Job Search Radio


Being an introvert, can be extremely painful in a world that seems so darned social. You may feel lonely, or like a fake, sad, or pained, just like non-introverts but you have your own unique way of engaging that, often, others don’t understand.

My guest, Bob McIntosh, is someone who is an introvert and runs workshops for job hunters (he’s an introvert, not someone who wants to be a shut in).

We discuss strategies for introverts to use when job hunting.
