Happy Birthday Job Search Radio!

Today, we complete our 4th year and begin our fifth with a new format. VIDEO! Yes, we become a video podcast that you can still listen to even if you don’t like my smiling face.

Summary

This is Job Search Radio. I'm your host, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter and welcome. Notice anything different? It's video!

Do you know why were switching to video? Well, I will simply say this is a very special day in the history of the show--- (I blew a non-noise maker and put on a birthday hat).

Happy birthday to Job Search Radio! YAY!

4 years ago, I interviewed Hal Klegman who, at that time was doing recruiting for a firm in Chicago named Roy Talman & Associates. We did what was for me a very uncomfortable interview., It was my 1st interview. I had never done one before.I thought I sounded pretty good but as I listened to it years later, It sounds pretty scripted. You want to know why? It's because it was scripted.

I outlined much everything that we spoke about. He knew the questions in advance and everything we were going to cover. I felt more comfortable that way. I was nervous.

Here we are. Job Search Radio is now 4 years old and I decided in conjunction with the folks at WebTalkRadio.net, where the show is hosted, that we would switch formats. We would go to video.

You can still listen and get the show through iTunes or stitcher or wherever else you listen to it. But, you know what? You're going to have my face to look at from time to time.

I just want to say that I think this is an exciting transition for the show. You can still listen to me; you don't have to stare at me and watch me all the time.You can still just listen to the podcast. But I thought the reality was it will be more interesting for some of you. You can see that lovely painting behind me that was painted for me when I still lived in New York. It is a place that is long since closed called Shopsin. Over my shoulder is a picture of my son when he was very young. That lovely plant behind me that is flowering beautifully . . . You have a chance to see my smiling faceAnd learn more about job hunting.

So, I hope you enjoy the transition. He is officially going into effect on Monday and, in the meantime, a few have questions for me, if you Multiply advice about some element of job search, send an email to me at JobSearchRadio@gmail.com . I can't promise I will cover every question. We will have a backlog of stuff. Send me questions. I would love to be able to help you.

And, in all honesty I have to tell you that the best way that I can help you is by coaching you. You may have questions about your job search that require conversation And they are not just a simple question.You, may have a question as to whether your resume or LinkedIn profile is good enough. You may have questions about a salary negotiation or how to interview effectively. Visit TheBigGameHunter.us. There are tabs on the top they will tell you how to reach out to me. I would love to help you. I would love to coach you.It's really good be the best way that I can help you.

But, in the meantime, Happy Birthday to Job Search Radio!

Tough Interview Questions: The Head Sweep


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

The set up to the question is a great fake out. Would you get it? I think most people wouldn’t.

Summary

I want to give you 1 of those tough interview questions . . It is not a deflection per se, but It is a question designed to see whether your tunnel vision person or a conceptual thinker. Here is how the situation is set up.

You are in an interview and there is a piece of paper and a pen in front of you. You are invited to turn her head all the way to the left. Then, in one's sweep they want you to focus on everything that you see, that is the color blue. You move from left to right and notice everything that is the color blow. One sweep is all that you get. When you are done, you are told to look down and close your eyes. Then they say to you, "Without looking, there is a piece of paper and a pen in front of you. We want you to write down everything that you've seen that is the color green."

Catch that one.

You want to find out if you noticed anything other than the specific thing that they asked you to look for. It is a very tricky question and thus when you're invited to do the sweep, I want to encourage you to notice everything. They may pick a different color like notice everything green and then picked blue. They may say look for everything blue and then ask you about yellow.

Notice everything. Pay attention to what is around you because obviously the trick here is not the tunnel vision, the specific thing that they are inviting you to notice, but what you notice be God.

There is Nothing Permanent About a Permanent Position

EP 437 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter points out that there is nothing permanent about a permanent job and what you should do about it

Summary

There was something interesting going on on my other show, "Job Search Radio," where four guests in a row pointed out a fallacy the job hunters hold, that employees hold.

You see most employers try to seduce people (for you) by describing their jobs as "permanent positions," when they aren't.

Here I  point out that there is nothing permanent about a permanent job and what you should do about it.

The term, "permanent position," is an anachronism.

You see, there are full-time jobs that occupy your time for 40 hours per week or more. But they are not permanent. They just occupy your time.

Philosophically as you evaluate positions there are a few things you need to think of.

What are you going to get out of this experience?
What sort of knowledge, skill or experience can you plunk on your resume they will make you desirable to the next employer?
Think of this job as having a tour of duty-- 18 months, 24 months, whatever it is. How will they determine what your next tour will be with the firm. What sort of benchmarks will they use to consider you for another role?
Remember, just as the achievement you would have if you were to change jobs will be measured by another employer, the job you perform for this firm will be used to measure you for other opportunities internally. Don't let their chump job be how you are evaluated by them.

How to Learn from Being Rejected

How to Learn from Being Rejected | Job Search Radio


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/02/28/how-to-learn-from-being-rejected/

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter encourages you to use these ideas to learn from being turned down for a job.

Summary

You not going to get every job that you interview for and I do not get a get an interview for every job you submit your resume to. This isn't about criticism. This is about learning from the experience. I want to focus on the situations where you have been interviewed and rejected..

I think it's important to start off by acknowledging any feelings that you have. Are you feeling mad? Are you feeling sad? Give yourself a little bit of time. I'm not talking about weeks. I'm talking about an hour where if you are angry, beat up something in your home or apartment. I don't mean a person. I am referring to taking a tennis racket and hit the pillow. If you are sad, it is okay to cry.

Then, you move onto the next thing which is, "How did they analyze you?" How did they evaluate and assess you? What were they looking for in the course of the evaluation? How well did you answer their questions? Was that really your best or did you give them something that was 50% of your best?

Most people when they start doing their self critique, "I did a great job!" Maybe you didn't. Give yourself a little bit of time. Review your answers to their questions. Then, ask yourself, "Could I have done better?" That's asking your self just to be clear about that.

Here's the next thing to do – – within a short period of time of having the rejection communicated to you, send an email or text if that is available to you, directed to the person that you interviewed with and ask, "Could I get a few minutes of your time? I just want to get your feedback for areas of improvement. " Particularly in the case of final interviews where it is you, and 1 or 2 other people that you have been competing with, this is a great approach.

You called, set up a meeting, coffee, whatever, and then say, "I don't want to ask you why you picked the other person. I want to ask you where could I have done a better job? Where was my experience deficient in your eyes or how was the other person's experience, superior to mine so I can learn from that?" Especially, in a case where you are a finalist, this is a terrific approach. The reason I say that is because there are a lot of instances where the person they choose doesn't work out. Who do you think they start thinking of right away? You.

Getting that kind of feedback and then acting on it for your own benefit will help you develop the skills, knowledge and experience to be more effective in your next interview and, at the same time, allow them to maintain the contact with you, think of you should something happen and a new role opens up. As a matter of fact, you can say to them, "I was really so impressed with you and with your organization. If something else opens up please let me know."

This isn't about begging. I'm sure you didn't hear any sound of begging it and what I suggest you say. You don't want to sound like a beggar at that point. You just want to simply say what I previously suggested. Often, they will come back to you with something else.

This is an approach that really will be helpful to you. It may result in the job without firm. But, more likely, you can take that feedback, use it constructively and apply it to the next interview.

Stupid Interview Mistakes: Having Disorganized Answers (VIDEO)


Follow Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/NoBSCoachingAdvice

It is very easy to avoid this interview mistake. Just use STAR.

Summary

I thought I would do what my "stupid interview mistakes"shows today and talk with you about 1 of the classic mistakes people make when they are answering questions during an interview. Often, it is because they are sufficiently nervous that they become disorganized.

There are 2 things I want to encourage people to do. The 1st is to remember some sort of anchoring device that brings you back home. As I was doing with someone yesterday, in their case, I suggested that if they had a ring, when they needed to get centered to just press on that spot on your finger as a reminder, whether they wore the ring or not.

Another thing that is more concrete for a lot of folks is organize your answer using a particular acronym called STAR. That stands for SITUATION that you stepped into, the TASK you are asked to perform or were assigned or chose to do, the ACTION that you performed, and the RESULTS that you obtained. In referencing results, you want to use financial terms that reflect the money that your work helped your firm make or save. If your work helped your firm generate a certain amount of money, you indicate the number of dollars or the percentage difference between you and another person in your firm doing similar work. You can stated in terms of pure dollars or in percentages. It makes no difference.

The STAR approach to answering questions engages people because you are telling a story and people love stories! The format, again, is SITUATION, TASK, ACTION and RESULTS

Preparing to Job Search: Getting Clear About Your Target

Preparing to Job Search: Getting Clear About Your Target | Job Search Radio


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/11/15/preparing-to-job-search-getting-clear-about-your-target/

EP 43​5 I discuss the importance of understanding what your target is when you are job hunting.

Summary

If you are driving from New York to Boston or maybe Paris to Rome or Brasília to Caracas and you didn't have a GPS or roadmap, how would you get there are how would you even know you are driving in the right direction? The same is true in your career, isn't it? How do you get from junior staff to a director position? How do you from manager to C suite? How to go about doing it?

Most people have magical thinking and believe that if they wish it and hope it and do a good job, that will be their eventual destination. You can also do with smart people do and start interviewing people who have already gotten to where you want to get to that how they got there. This is a form of informational interview where, basically, you meet with someone, not to ask for job, but to ask for information and advice. Some people make the mistake of meeting with one person and believing that they have all the information that they need to know in order to get to their goals. You know, 1 Person Has Their Particular Way. But, instead, I want you to meet with multiple people and look for common threads to their stories and unusual suggestions.

For example, if I people tell you that you need a Masters degree or particular training and one person says that you can get by with an Associates degree, which opinion do you think you should discard? Seriously? The probability is it is going to be the Associates, right? What you have that information, once you've had your questions answered, act on the information. That's the most important thing that people don't do. Don't treat the revised like just another weight loss book or another self-help book to be read and ignored. Act on the advice that you receive.

When I attended school in New York to become a psychotherapist, I remember the teacher at the Institute say that is important to charge a good fee for therapy services. His reasoning was that by paying a good fee, you could afford to be there to help them to receive treatment and continue to help them.

He also said that is important for people to pay because, at the end of the day, the patient is more willing to act on the advice, the insights that they receive in the session. Simply put, free advice is often ignored. Advice that people paper for is likely to get them to take action. That's going to be true of you, too. It's 1 of the reasons that I do coaching is in order to help people take action and do it in a way that my unique skill set (and I do have a very unique skill set, having done recruiting) will go a long way toward helping them break through.

By treating the advice that you receive is being valuable because you paid for it, and telling the person or people they gave it to you what you are doing with their advice, it helps them feel as though you have value their opinion and that they did not just wasting time by speaking with you. A lot of people do that because they get free advice. They don't act on.

So, I'll simply say, if you meet with someone stay in touch with them. Hire a coach because coaching will be something that you will pay for in the good coach will help you move faster than just a friend give you the advice.

Summary

I'm happy to be back today talking about another step in the preparation for job hunting. This is the hard one for a lot of people and that should be the natural one, but it becomes the hard one for a lot of people. It's called, "What Makes Your Heart Sing?"

Many people take the time to figure out what makes them happy professionally or a way to achieve it. Some people do it, but most people don't. I think what happens is they work a job that leaves them deadened. You've learned the hard way that work is just something like WORK. It's painful. This is an opportunity to explore alternatives that can make your heart rejoice and feel free.

For a lot of people, that is an alien thought. What you really good? What do you really love doing? What is something that you really love doing that someone would pay you for?

I know for myself, I became a headhunter many years ago and then there was a point there were decide to go to graduate school to get an MSW. I had the good fortune of meeting my wife there. We decide to have a child, buy a house... All sorts of different things. So is chilled my psychotherapy practice idea and became a social worker for job hunters. In doing so and now moving into coaching, I start to share certain things and ideas the really get excited.

The idea of coaching, job hunters, more than "placing them in jobs," has become something that really floats my boat.

For you, if you are not sure what to do or how to go about doing it, take 1 of the quality tests I want to be clear that why speak about Myers-Briggs or Strengths Finders or Core-Map (I thought this was a really interesting one), whichever one you use, don't do the online versions of the test because most of them are just not validated, don't necessarily cover all the material as well as a person administering the test well. Making investment in yourself to figure out what your natural tendencies are.

I really liked Core-Map when I took it. I'm probably going to get a core map certification to administer it, but I don't have it now.. Even if I did, I wouldn't put it in the show notes. I will point you to someone else so that you don't think it's a plug for me making money.

At the end of the day, people learn with their natural tendencies are and what their skills are really good at, what their interests are what leaves them passionate. There was a book that I read the have the fascination test in it. It is Sally Hogshead's book, "How The World Sees You."

When all is said and done, find what your true nature is and start exploring those possibilities so that, in this way, you don't have to be deadened in your next job or in your career. Even if you don't apply it in this job search, you can start thinking about over the next few years and start exploring avenues we can start maximizing your true nature.

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.
