Marketing Yourself

Summary

So often, we are watching video, we are reading things, we are listening to podcasts and we are learning a lot from them. Why can't that be you?

"Oh! I am not an expert! I'm just a ___________"

Well, a lot of these people are just like you and they are providing great information. You can, too. For example, all you need is an iPhone and the ability to post on the web on YouTube and you started off. You can do the same thing I'm doing right now ... you can talk to a camera and posted on YouTube, posted on the website and be good to go.

This is the beginning. Do a daily video about some aspect of your work. Don't have enough to say? Do a weekly video. That's 52 videos a year. Do that over course of the year your 52 videos over one year hundred for over 2. People can start to notice you, especially if your content is great..

Not sure what to say even on a topic that you are an expert at? Keep your videos to 3 minutes, 5 minutes tops. In the subject area under your video on YouTube, talk about how people can reach you. Put it on your LinkedIn page. Put up on LinkedIn, as well on LinkedIn's publishing platform. Suddenly, people discover use an expert and recruiters are starting to contact you, the corporate recruiters is trying to contact you.

Again, start creating content. It is not that hard. It is like being on TV except it's all in your control.

At the time to record this. I have been doing this for about 2 years and had over 1200 videos up (NOTE: now I have over 3000 videos up on a host of different subjects). You can do this for yourself as well.

Get Publicity for Yourself | Job Search Radio

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter discusses presenting yourself as an expert and the service that will help you do so.

Summary

A lot of people think publicity.. That's not in my league. There's nothing I can really do to interesting newspaper, reporter or magazine in me. In point of fact, you're wrong. Let me show you how to find out.

There is a service available called, Help-a-Reporter-Out, that you can find at helperreporter.com.

This was started years ago by on man named Peter Shankman as a way of providing an email list 2 people about stories that reporters were working on that they needed help with. He since has sold the list and it is now being managed by different firm. The concept is still the same.

You sign up. 3 times a day you get an email from them. Most of the topics available are not going to be appropriate for you. There will be ones that are. I have appeared on many different sites and in many newspapers as a result of responded to questions the reporters have had about job hunting or hiring. That's my area of expertise, quite obviously.

You have yours. If you start thinking, "I'm a mortgage broker. What are they going to care about?" Let me tell you a lot of these things are going to relate to you. You can also segment the list so you are getting only topics that are appropriate for you.

Again, go to helpareporter.com, fill out the questionnaire, start subscribing. Responding to most of these inquiries when you do... 5, maybe 10 minutes. You can take 5 or 10 minutes to create publicity for yourself that will help you not just simply in this job search, but positioning yourself as an expert for years to come.

You'll wind up in recruiter searches because they are all looking at Google and other search engines for ways of identifying people who are thought leaders. Start working with helpareporter.com and get yourself out there.

What Are You Selling?

peddler1

My father and mother were born in Poland, met in Siberia and emigrated to the United States after World War II. My Dad was a bookkeeper for a firm that he eventually bought from the founder’s son who was in the process of running it into the ground.

I worked for him as a teenager doing filing and proofing columns. I was not made for such work. It bored me into having blisters in my brain (metaphorical blisters).

One day as we got into his car to drive home, he looked at me and said, “Jeffrey (he always called me “Jeffrey), you can work with your hands or with your head.” I interpreted this father-son moment as meaning, you know nothing about working with your hands. Start focusing on my head.

The term, “knowledge worker” describes a lot of what my father meant. Many of you, like me, sell our knowledge of how something is done, should be done or can be done to employers who pay is for that work. But what happens in an age where such knowledge is readily available and the cost of obtaining that knowledge is declining because of its ready availability?

Using the example of manufacturing, it seems like when certain knowledge or experience is “commoditized,” technology has made it easy for the work to be sent abroad. Even adding the cost of shipping to the manufacturing cost allows firms to earn more than if the job remains in a higher cost market. We have seen the same occurring in what were once called “white collar jobs,” but can be thought of as “knowledge work.”

For most of us who are selling knowledge and experience, what are you actually selling to an employer that they should buy?

How Do I Find a Job Without a Resume?


I was asked this question on Quora and thought to be a good way to encourage you to think creatively.

Summary

The question I was asked was, “How do you find a job without a resume?” I think the answer comes down to two ways.

If you are very inexperienced and looking for a job, let’s say, in retail or a job at a fast food restaurant, you don’t need a resume. They may ask you to complete an application but the idea of a formal resume is not important.

However, if you are in a professional discipline, how do you find the job without a resume? The answer comes down to, “Why would employer want to talk to you without you following the convention of you submitting your resume?”

I think the answer is clear. They had a particular need and you have the experience they are looking for. How do they know that?

Perhaps they have seen your LinkedIn profile. Perhaps you referred to them by someone who knows your work and is a strong proponent of it. Perhaps they saw you speak at a group were you are the expert on stage, presenting on that situation.

Being the expert in the field changes the rules because, “the rules,” are designed for the average individual– the one who is compliant. There is no reason to bend for them. If you are seen as the expert, you have opportunities that other people don’t have.

How do you present yourself as an expert? I gave one example earlier – – you are up on stage at a conference and are presenting.

Here’s another. You have written about this subject for years. Books are a business card for a lot of people. After all, when you think about it, what is a book telling us? Is telling us that you have knowledge and expertise on a particular subject that makes you different than other people. Pretty simple.

So if you want to be found, If you want to be sought after, If you want to avoid the resume trap so that when they call you up and say, “Jeff, we would like to talk with you about an opportunity with a client of ours.”

“Great. Let’s talk!”

“Do you have a resume?”

“No. I don’t have resume. You know about my background. You reached out to me, remember? Look, you found me on LinkedIn (or saw me speak or read my book), and time to write a resume. I have a full plate ahead of me.”

That’s the easiest way to do it.

Do you really think employers are trying to help you? You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.

The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter has been a career coach and recruiter for what seems like one hundred years.
