Stupid Job Search Mistakes: Believing It Is in the Bag


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

I was reminded of this from listening to a podcast and how fans of the Atlanta Falcons thought the Super Bowl was in the bag until it wasn’t.

Summary

I want to talk with you today about 1 of the stupid job search mistakes that is reminder by listening to a podcast. It was talking about how in the world of sports, There was the humbling defeat of the Atlanta Falcons in The Super Bowl last year.

I want to be clear that the podcast cannot speak in these terms. The Falcons were up 28-3, It is the middle of the 3rd quarter and they are destroying the New England Patriots.The fans are celebrating. The players aren't celebrating but the fans are, thinking it is in the bag. But I know, that in job hunting, there are People who at a certain stage in the job process Think it is in the bag and start to ease up. In the course of easing up, they make stupid mistake after stupid mistake or one critical one that proves so costly.

I remember when I was a beginning recruiter back in The Stone Ages, when was still working at employment agency as a beginner, and hearing a story about a guy who is interviewing at General Foods , which, at that time, was a behemoth consumer products firm that made lots of cereal products and other well-known products. This was a talented technical guy, well spoken, Great appearance, and he has been in for all day. Is soon to meet the Director of mIS Which, at that time, was the title for the top person in technology. Is there talking to this person And ask him, "why are you looking for a job now?" He answers by saying In his cocky and arrogant manner, "I want to work in a better organization. Right now, I work with a bunch of (I apologize if you are listening to this nd are a member of one of these categories; this is what he said) slobs and Indians. I want to work with a better class of people."

Suffice it to say that the director had the good sense to escort this person out the door Immediately. The candidate said, "I don't understand what's going on."Well, you just present yourself as a racist and as demeaning to people who had worked their way up. Thank goodness you were escorted out and that is what happens when you let your guard down, thinking that you have it in the bag.

Sports is a great humbling vehicle for so many who in their arrogance believe that everything is fine and everything is good. They are taught pretty quickly that if they ease up their opponent will come back and destroyed them. Don't make that kind of mistake. Always remember that you are always selling until the time you are in the ground. The reality is that once you are on the job, selling your ideas occurs, right? You have to sell your ideas constantly or else you become another person working there with nothing special about you.

You are always selling. You never let your guard up.

Two Dirty Words to Never Use in an Interview

The Two Dirty Words to Never Use in a Job Interview | No BS Job Search Advice Radio

EP 931 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter tells you the two dirty words never to use in an interview.

Summary

I just got off the phone with someone. I was due to conversation with the worms evaluating their resume for client of ours. It was really interesting because in the course of talking with her, she used 1 of the 2 dirty words of interviewing. What are the 2 words that you should never use in a conversation.

Do you want to know what those 2 words are? I'll tell you what the 2 words are and then give you examples.

The 1st dirty word. Ready? Only. As in, "I have only done this," Or, "I have only done that." Here is the 2nd dirty word. Light. "I have light experience with.... "Whatever it is.

Tell people what you know and what you've done. If it is sufficient, great! If it isn't, that's okay, too. When you use words like only or light, but it tells the employer is, "I don't have a lot of confidence in my ability to answer questions on the subject. Could we go on to something else, please?" After all, what does light mean anyway. In this context? When you use only, what are you really saying?

Drop those 2 words from your vocabulary. Like I said, tell people what you know and what you have done. If it is good enough, terrific. If it isn't, you have been forthright. You have been accurate. Your no risk of being fired when they hire you, because they're not hiring you.

So, like I said – – 2 dirty words – – only and light.

Stupid Interview Mistakes: Having Disorganized Answers (VIDEO)

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

Stupid Interview Mistakes: Not Setting Up The Salary Question Right (VIDEO)


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

This is one that just exposes you is a complete amateur.

Summary

During my 40+ years of experience in executive search and now is a coach, I'm always stunned that people do this. It comes across in the interview as, out of the blue, you ask, "So, what's the salary?" TA DA! They answer , but it comes across as being rude or obnoxious. There is a better way to set it up.

It really starts at the initial phone screen where HR or the hiring manager calls you and asks you about your salary. I'm going to pause for a second and say that I know there is a theory that recommends that you never answer a salary question. Unfortunately, for most people, if you don't answer the salary question, you are escorted out the door.

When you work in sales, it is different. You if you answer the question, you follow up by saying, "I just want to be clear that I'm not here to take a bad deal. So if you think I'm just going to accept the $3000 increase, that is not what I am looking for." That's the way to answer it in sales.

For average Jane or average Joe, who is interviewing for a position, let's say is $100,000 or $200,000 . . . Whatever it is, "I just want to check with you that I'm looking for reasonable raise on top of that is within the realm of possibility. I'm not here to take significantly less OR less for that matter. I'm looking for an opportunity where I can advance my career AND do that financially, too. Is that within the realm here?"

"Yes, it is."

"Great. Could you give me a sense of the salary range for the role, understanding that I don't know how you are going to evaluate me. At the end of the day, I just want to get a picture of what the ranges for the position. " Normally, they will give you a sense of it.

"Normally, there's a lot more than I'm sure you need to know in order to get a sense of where I would fit in but I just want to learn that this is…"

Did you see how I went with this? It is a respectful question not, "So, what's the salary for this?" Is not an imbecile question that so many people ask.

People make so many stupid interview mistakes. Here’s another one.

Summary

I'm back today with another 1 of those stupid interview mistakes that people make. The title of the show is, "What was the question again?" It's really the notion of going off topic. And just basking in your own magnificence, talking until you're putting everyone to sleep by making them think about lunch or dinner or how the hell he get the heck out of his interview. It happens more often than you think.

I remember on one occasion I was interviewing someone for client. I'm a very easy interviewer; I just want to know what the truth is. It's really that simple. Tell me your story; help me understand; I would ask good questions. It wasn't complicated. In this person start to go on and on and on in such minute detail about nothing that relates to the question. There was a point where I said, "Hey! I have to ask you a question."

"Sure."

"Do you remember my original question?" He didn't. It let me know that he'd been on so many interviews that he stop listening to the question and just start to answer what he thought the question was, instead of listening to it.

You seek folks people are asking questions for a reason. They want to know something specific about how you match job, both from the standpoint of skills and experiences to getting a sense of personality. Do you make them feel confident in you that you can do the job. When you go off on these wild tangents that have nothing to do with anything that has been set up until that point, heck, they just go bonkers. I go bonkers! You're putting me to sleep and all I want to do is in the conversation.

Just be self-aware. Focus in on the question. Give your answer in 45 to 75 seconds. It's really that simple and you will make this mistake.

Stupid resume mistakes

Stupid Resume Mistakes: Your Resume Interferes with the ATS


Listen to the full episode here:
http://webtalkradio.net/internet-talk-radio/2017/11/06/stupid-resume-mistakes-your-resume-interferes-with-the-ats/

EP 427 Many people have resume that create conflicts with a company’s applicant tracking system. And you are causing your own problems.

Summary

The long and the short of it is many times a resume winds up in the legendary blackhole and it is your fault. There's a tendency to job hunters have to blame the ATS... And don't get me wrong, there are many instances where it has been program definitely and winds up screaming at people who would be qualified for a role.

Often, the issue is the resume. Here are a few things that people do that interfere with the ATS:

1. Embedded headers. I said that one before, but I'm still getting embedded headers very regularly. They look lovely and that they show up on each successive page is completely irrelevant an unnecessary. That was something that was done in the day when people were printing resumes and they didn't want to lose the order of the resume. They staple them together. No one does that anymore. They are reading them off of the screen. Forget the embedded headers. Just put it on the top of page

2. Another thing that people do that interferes with the applicant tracking system is that they use shading in their resume. The shading looks lovely but the ATS will not be able to read what is within the shading. Not only that, it may outright "cough it up." If you think that anyone will then manually enter your information from the resume, you are sadly mistaken. Your resume is that.

3. If you think lines of the solution, you are also mistaken. Lines are not a solution. If anything, and ATS cannot read the words or lines in proximity to a line unless you've skipped the space. If you do want to use a line, skip a space before and skip a space after. That's also true. If you are using a slash mark (/). You need to put a space before and in the space after which is grammatically incorrect, but it has been submitted to an ATS, he needs to be there. Otherwise, they don't read those characters correctly. If you have a particular skill that is being sought, and you have 5 of the 6 letters to the ATS, you don't have that skill. Avoid slashes, avoid lines, avoid embedded headers, avoid shading.

Stupid Final Interview Mistakes | No BS Job Search Advice Radio


Listen to the full episode here:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2017/07/21/stupid-final-interview-mistakes

EP 811 I outline a few stupid final interview mistakes that too many people make.

Summary

I'm back today with what I call stupid final interview mistakes. To be clear, these are the kind of mistakes that are little bit different than the ones that I have pointed out previously because these are the ones to just killed it off at that moment when the opportunity could be yours. Where you are competing on a final interview, and you just do something dumb. Let me just point out some of the things that people can do that will just shoot themselves in the foot and send the candidacy down the drain. They are in no particular order.

1. You arrive late.

2. You just barely or inappropriately for the interview. I'm looking to tell you how to dress because you may be listening to this at a time when styles are different. I simply say the dressing inappropriately for this audience . . . I use an example from a hedge fund the used to recruit for... They used to hate people who wore ties. If you suddenly were talking to an interview, they got turned off. They used to think of ties is something to catch food on if you are sloppy eater.

3. You start feeling arrogant because you think the job is yours. That attitude starts to leak out. You get too cocky and forget that you might be competing with someone and act like the job is yours. In fact, you are competing. You are competing against another person or people or your competing against, "Let's go back and see if there's someone else." Never treat this as though it is a formality.

I remember one time I was a relatively junior person, 1 of my colleagues had someone on interviews with someone in Westchester New York. The person was there from 8 AM until 5 PM. His final interview is with the head of the function he will be working for. What happens is is that the head of the function asks why he is looking for a job. It's hard to imagine someone delivering a racist moment like this. But he did. The candidate says, "I work with a bunch of slobs and Indians."

How do you expect someone to respond to this? Do you expect is can act like a best friend? No! Suffice to say, he didn't get the job offer, thank goodness. Recognize that you can shoot yourself in the foot by thinking that the job is yours and your arrogance comes out.

4. Your answers to questions are incongruent with things you said previously. As a result, people start to compare notes and go, "He said this. But is now saying this? Something doesn't add up." He makes them hesitate. When firms hesitate, they reject. They know they can trust you.

5. They ask stupid questions of the interview. How many weeks of vacation do I get? Immature stuff that seems ridiculous.

6. They arrived unprepared. MINIMALLY you look at the LinkedIn profile the person you will be meeting with to get an idea of your background. See what they look like if there's a photo there. Do a Google search to see if there's any new news about the organization to see if this is a subject that you want to ask questions about.

7. You start making new demands. This is part of that arrogance thing that people sometimes do. New demands make firm scratched her head and wonder, "What's with this person? I don't get it. We've been talking about this all along and now they bring this up? They ask for $20,000 more? No explanation? They just up the price?"

8. They are too casual and forget that there still competing. I mentioned this on a video and is the notion . . . It came from the story where represented someone for position, the firm flew him out and he is talking with his future boss. She asked him a question, everything had been going so well for so long in this interview for such a hard to find skill and experience. He is 1 of the few people in the world who have this background. His response to 1 of her questions was to say, "I'll talk with you about that when I come on board." She thought this was ridiculous and rejected him. Rightly so.

Recognize that you are always competing. You're always doing something to sell yourself into the role or cause you to be rejected. Don't get lazy. Don't get arrogant. Don't become casual and never EVER think that the job is in the bag.
