Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
Good morning. It's Tuesday, April 3, 2012, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!
A Letter from an Upset Reader
I read your column last week and though I appreciate the information, I am outraged that interviewers find it necessary to make anyone nervous during this time of economic woes.
Our life style has changed so much, I work so hard to find a job, but few companies are hiring.
If I don't get a job soon I will have to sell my house at a rock bottom price and move to a much smaller place, just to avoid foreclosure.
My son had to pick a college not based on his achievements, but on what I could afford, or at least what I told him I can afford.
I worry about keeping food in the refrigerator, and clothes on my kids backs.
My wife and I already sold our cars, now we have just one used one.
My oil bill last month was $600. I can't pay it.
I can no longer afford life insurance, and our health insurance covers almost nothing.
We had a tag sale just to pay some of our bills.
My wife had to ask the kids to wear most of there clothes twice, because of the electric bill.
Cell phones, laptops, tv's, video systems, dining room set, anything of value, sold.
No sports for the kids, the equipment and gas are too much.
So when I go into an interview, with all this weighing on me, and an interviewer is going to play some game to see how I handle pressure? Come to my house, see how I handle pressure. Tell my son he can't go to the school he deserves, see how I handle pressure. Look at what we are having for dinner, see how I handle pressure. Feel how cold my house is in the winter, seeing my children wearing their jackets at dinner, see how I handle pressure.
I know interviewers have a job to do, and I am not the only one in this situation. I'm not asking for charity, a hand out or even a hand up. All I am asking for is a fair shake at a job, without the games and a little bit of respect.
So if you're looking to make me nervous, you're too late. I'm terrified.
Next Issue: Questions that will be asked
We are always on the look out for more Experts to advise our readers - if you're a headhunter, job coach, career advisor, etc., and may be interested in contributing to this edition from time to time, please contact me at email@example.com .
When Alex and Dave break up on their wedding day it affects the lives of their friends Penny, Jane, Max and Brad, but it doesn't tear the friendships apart.
If your career success is based on the sum of the 5 most successful people you're closest to, how successful can you potentially be? Most people surround themselves with people who are in the same place they are. So if you're out of work, the 5 closest people to you tend to be in the same boat and have the same connections as you.
It's time to expand your circle of influence. I stand by my statement that mentorship is the greatest strategy for getting work. The reason is because whether or not a mentor ever hires you is irrelevant, it's learning from successful people. You may have heard me say, "Success leaves footprints." I did not coin that phrase, I just pass it on because it's true. Not only can mentors advise you on the fastest and most direct strategies for getting work, they also inspire you, give you new ideas, open doors that were once closed to you, and even put your mind at ease if you have some concerns about your future.
Every month I have the privilege of interviewing successful entertainment industry professionals for my Greenlight Mentor Program. I'd like to reveal some of the common themes these Greenlight Mentors share:
1. Age is not a deterrent. Many of the mentors I interview either reached success at a typically 'older' age or entered the industry after doing something else. They didn't have hang ups about the "young hip It guy" or the "older experienced guy" as their competition, they just went for it. Do you get caught up in age? Do you worry about the sands of the hourglass?
2. People Get Fired. Yes, I've spoken to Academy and Emmy Award winners and nominees as well as successful working professionals you may not have heard of, and they get fired. But do they walk into their next interview and blurt it out? No. Do they wear it like a scarlet letter? No. Do they learn and grow from it? Yes. One of the Greenlight Mentors even thanked the woman who fired her because she realized she was complacent in her job. She went on from that firing to find her dream job.
3. Don't Ask For Work Ask For Advice. I tell you this all the time, so I'm hoping that knowing that the Greenlight Mentors agree with me, will bring it home for you. When you are getting to know someone, ask for advice, ask for help, but if they don't know you well enough to trust you with their reputation and their paycheck, and they are working on someone else's big budget project, they are going to hire their "go-to-people," it just makes good common sense. It's nothing personal, but a reel and resume is not enough. Talent is not enough. There is too much at stake for a successful person to take a chance on an unknown. Are there exceptions? Of course. If you ask for advice, they will know you're looking for work, and if there is the possibility of an exception, let it come from them.
4. Life Experience Is Key (Be a Storyteller). We are in the business of storytelling, so hone yours. When I interview Greenlight Mentors, they don't answer me in lists of skills and attributes, they share stories, and in those stories are the gems that are revealed about their work ethic, skills, personal lives, and more. Instead of listing your talents to people, share a story that reveals your talents. Believe me, believe the mentors, people will pick up on more than you even realize, and they will be far more entertained.
5. Take Risks! Every mentor I've interviewed has taken risks over and over and over. For every successful person out there taking risks and pushing through a fear, there are 100 people who aren't willing to, or are stuck in their fear and the "conversations with themselves" as to why they can't or shouldn't push through, and take a risk. Who do you want to be?
I've learned through the years, that hearing it from me, doesn't have the same credibility as hearing it from mentors, so I implore you to get yourself some fabulous mentors, so you can be surrounded by 5 highly successful people.
1. Get 2 mentors this month and 5 next month and then the next. You won't be able to help yourself. Conversations with successful passionate people are addictive!
2. Unsure about how to get mentors, or want to start off with mentors who are brought to you? Join my Greenlight Mentor Community.
The friends on Happy Endings are always learning from each other; the good, the bad, and the hilarious... that's why, there really are no bad mentors. There's always something to learn.

Am I behind the times if my resume doesn't have a hyperlink to a personal website or portfolio?
If you're asking that question it means you know other people are doing it which means, yes, you're behind. In this business you always want to be seen as a leader. If your resume is being compared to someone who has the hyperlinks, then they are seen as more current than you.
They are making it easier for the potential employer to get the information needed to make their decision. So instead of focusing on being behind, do everything you can to be a trailblazer and get hyperlinked!
I was thinking of putting up a Power Point presentation on my personal website, too cheesy?
I can't answer that without seeing the presentation, so I suggest you find at least 10 people to show it to and ask what they think of it.
My question is what is your purpose for having it on your site? The trend right now is video. Is this a video that is marketing you or is it literally a presentation? Using video to introduce yourself and share your work is an excellent idea and I highly recommend it.
