When Life Serves You Lemons...
Exactly a year ago, one of my best friends received an offer from a company he has worked at for 13 years. Take a drastic cut in pay or be let go. He chose the former.
After a year, we talked about the changes this decision has made in his life, and surprisingly, most have been good.
Instead of spending money at fine restaurants, he and his wife cook special meals together and eat by candlelight at home.
Instead of his kids spending time in their rooms watching TV or on the computer, they spend the majority of the time in the living room, watching the one tv he now owns, as a family. Every Friday night is either game night or movie night.
He rides his bike to work more often than not, and as a result, he has lost 22 pounds.
He packs his lunch, which is almost always more nutritious than what he was eating before and certainly less expensive.
His family spends time hiking, camping and going to parks rather than the cineplex or the arcade.
The whole family has been reading more and they were very surprised to find out that their local library also has quite the selection of DVDs.
Instead of going out to bars with friends, he invites them over for wine and dinner. He said that they actually had better conversations since they didn't have to scream over loud music.
They grow their own vegetables, and I can attest, they are more delicious than anything I can get at the market.
I asked him if it's all good, he said no. He worries about the mortgage payments and college tuition for his sons. However, he said the monthly bills are more manageable now that they have changed their lifestyle.
So when I asked him what the biggest difference was since his salary got reduced, he said he was happier.

A CYNOPSIS MESSAGE
I was in touch recently with Heidi Dangelmaier, a thought leader in marketing to young women. She posits that in the technology field (and aren't all media and communications in the technology field today?), "whoever sounds confident scores, the classic power tiers don't matter - the formal protocols of who owns the idea don't matter. In the end the real winner is about who knows the market... "
And then there is Woody Allen, who said eighty percent of success is showing up.
So putting this wisdom together, we have a plan for total success! Show up, know the market and sound confident. This is actually a very fine plan - it's what you need to be doing as you build your career.
The showing up part means making contact. Brian Stelter, TV and web writer for the New York Times, told a PR pro who was trying to reach him, "Keep emailing me. I may not reply, but keep emailing me until I do. It's not rudeness it's persistence." His NYT colleague David Carr qualifies this idea "Email is the way to get through, but provide an idea in your emails. Perhaps develop the idea over time. Gentle steady pressure by email can be effective."
So making contact may require some effort. But after all, when you actually have the attention, not just in their inbox but in their heads, you will then be 80% of the way to success (per W. Allen).
Then you have to know the market. This means you have been doing your homework. Know the firms and the people. Know the projections and the innovations - and understanding enough to have an opinion about what is likely to gain traction, what is likely just a sideshow and so on. You need an analytical grasp of the ecosystem you work in.
The last part is the confidence part. This means that you have to know what you think and believe in it. You have to control the dialog. Know what you have to offer and be convinced that you can make a difference. Don't be the know-it-all who is right about everything, (because who could be right about everything?) but focus deeply on certain things that you know well and can talk about interestingly and powerfully. This includes successes you have achieved that you can discourse on, as well as your opinions about where things are headed and how you will be able to rack up more successes in the future. Specific instances that you thoroughly understand and can discuss clearly will give you the platform to sound confident. And having them ready to go will make you feel confident.
So this is pretty straightforward, no? You can do all that, I am confident!

Typically, how long into the interview does the interviewer decided my fate? Is it within the first few moments and the rest of the interview is just for show?
Interviewers are just people - so the range is vast. You should treat every moment as the critical moment. Certainly the first impression is super-important. It is possible that the interviewer could be spinning out the time out of politeness - but you should act as if it is all totally serious. It may just be that their affect is low - you don't want to misinterpret the signals. It is possible that the job is yours to lose so keep on delivering. Yes, you want to be responsive to their cues - but stay on the upside just in case.
I am 46 years old and just interviewed with a company by a man in his mid twenties. Instead of a hand shake he "fist bumped" me and continuously referred to me as "Dude." I didn't say anything to him about this, but should I have, and should I speak to his superior about this or is it okay?
No you don't speak to his superior about this. He can talk to you any way he chooses as long as he doesn't break any employment laws. It may be that he is testing you with this. What is the right way to respond? I can't answer that without knowing you - but try not to be thrown off.
It does not mean you have to call him dude. You should stay yourself. But if you are being interviewed by a twenty-something, that means that should you get the gig you are going to have to be comfortable around that generation and its behavioral norms. If you are already feeling awkward, then perhaps you should consider that this environment is not a good fit for you.
