I received a message today from someone who posed a scenario asked different opinion. He has done a phone interview and is told that it will is a technicality for the client wanting to meet him. The recruiter tells him he needs to pay the airfare and travel and that if he is offered the job and takes it, he will be paid back for the trip.
Let’s read between the lines. You lay out the money. If you get the job, I will pay you back. If you don’t get the job, you will get nothing.
When he asks about what happens if they don’t select me, the recruiter says that this is for sure them to stop talking negatively. Like I said, the recruiter is going to pay him back if he gets the job and if he doesn’t get the job, he is out of luck.
Everything sounds find any books a flight from one city to Atlanta and rents a car. The night before, he goes to a friend’s wedding and he is on a 3 AM flight the next morning. Let’s get practical. He knows the guy for long time. It’s a big decision to go to the wedding, but he is only 3 AM flight so his at the airport at [1:30] AM. He is sleep deprived when he lands; he has an interview going on for in the long and the short of it is, he doesn’t get the job. His body just wants to get to sleep and he didn’t perform on the interview.
He tells the recruiter what happens. I want to explain it to the company. “I don’t even care about the expenses.” The company doesn’t want to talk to him; the recruiter has no interest. The company doesn’t want to talk to him. At the end of the day, he asks this question, “Is it a good deal to go on these fly outs prepaid? Does it come across stronger to say that I want half the money up front? Is it worth taking the risk of the client not paying up front?” He is looking for a way to protect themselves.
Here’s my thinking.
1. If you have a wedding the night before, it isn’t like the wedding wasn’t on the schedule when the interview showed up, right? You knew about that before hand and you miscalculated. As a result, you will that going out sleep deprived. That has nothing to do with whether or not you are going to get paid back. That has to do with you making a mistake
2. The way you handle this in the future is that you don’t put yourself in the position where you are going to be sleep deprived and unable to perform. This is nothing to do with the money. This has to do with you.
You didn’t deliver the goods on the interview and who would want to pay for you to have an excursion to stink up the joint. At the end of the day, what you could’ve done is say, “I can’t do Monday. I can do Tuesday. I have plans on Sunday that I cannot change. Tuesday I can be there on an early morning flight.” Do you know what you could have also done? You could go out Monday afternoon for a Tuesday interview, get a good nights sleep in a hotel and then walk in refreshed.
Instead, you made a mistake. People make mistakes and you ask for my advice… I give no BS advice. In the future, don’t put it back to back like this on yourself. You’ve already demonstrated that you can’t deliver under these circumstances; don’t do it again.

Being smart with stories on interviews

Being Smart With Stories | No BS Job Search Advice Radio

EP 863 I speak about using stories effectively when interviewing . . . and it isn’t what you think.

Summary

Today's podcast talks with you about stories. Most of you already know that there will be a lot of questions that you will be asked where you can talk about what you've done and how you went about doing it through stories. In doing so, use a way of talking about the situation you stepped into, the resources that you have available to you, the actions that you took the outcomes that you received in the course of doing this work. You got that.

What often happens is the story because the land particularly well. Whatever the reason is it doesn't work. When you're preparing for your interviews (you do prepare for interviews, right) I always talk with people that tough interview question is that people are asked pretty predictably on interviews. Whether it is, "Tell me about yourself," or, "Where do you see yourself 5 years from now," "What are your career aspirations," "Tell me about a time when you ...." There are a lot of questions that are asked pretty predictably on interviews. If you been on a few interviews you can already see that you're being asked the same questions over and over again.

1. Prepare by rehearsing answers to this.
2. Prepare with stories.
3. Have multiple stories available to illustrate your point.

Why multiple stories?

You see 2 people or 3 people and tell the same story. It lands flat with one person and the others nod. What have you done to counteract the impact of that 1st story? Good or bad? With good, you want to reinforce it. With bad, you want to correct it.

The next person, you need you may ask you similar question, you want to offer up a different story to them and not just parrot back the 1st answer.
1, the 1st story landed flat
here's the big thing:
2. By selling more than one story, you demonstrate that you have more than one experience with contending with this problem and thus more experience.

I don't care for the most junior person is good be hired an organization or in the C suite. Telling multiple stories to answer question is an effective way of demonstrating your experience and capabilities plus tactically offers a counterbalance against the impact of the story landed flat on someone's ears.
