Cynopsis: Classified Advantage

04.13.10

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, April 13, 2010, and this is your weekly issue of Cyn opsis: Classified Advantage! This edition includes the top job listings in the Television, Media and Ad Agency markets, professional development advice from national experts, your Q & A’s with our experts, and a summary of executive moves among top companies.

Why LinkedIn?

If you are not already on LinkedIn, now is the time.  LinkedIn currently has over 63 million members and is growing by 100,000 professionals each week.  The average member is a college-educated 43-year-old making just over $100,000 and every Fortune 500 company is represented.

Of the three major social networking sites, LinkedIn is the most business centric.  Unlike Facebook and Twitter, you need to put some serious thought and effort into your account prior to signing up.  Think of your LinkedIn account as your cover letter and resume online, available for anyone to read.  Your account will be your first impression, it has to be perfect.  This also goes for your photo.

Your Profile

To this end, before you post your information, view as many accounts as possible, see what you like and what you don’t like.  Take the best parts of the good accounts and avoid the mistakes of others.

Use as many keywords in your profile as you can.  People often use these keywords in LinkedIn’s advanced search engine to find other members.  You want to be as visible as possible.

Don’t just list your current position and company, list all the important ones.  This will give you more in common with other members and brings up your name more in search results.

Groups

There are over half a million groups on LinkedIn, based on companies, occupation, schools, etc.  Groups allow you to communicate with others with whom you have something in common.  Joining these groups is the fastest and most efficient way of increasing your connections.

Within the groups, you can ask questions about current industry trends and about a company’s culture.  This information will be invaluable during interviews.  By the same token, you can offer advice to others, becoming a respected member of the LinkedIn community.

The Real Beauty of LinkedIn: Advance Search.

LinkedIn’s greatest asset is the ability to make connections that would otherwise be impossible. Their advanced search facilitates introductions by mutual contacts, which will yield better results than trying to make a cold connection.

I want a job at Cynopsis Media.  I can type Cynopsis Media in either the keyword box or the company’s name box.  Advance search allows me to be more specific, from position title, where they went to college, to the person’s first and/or last name.  When the results appear, next to their name will be a number, one, two or three.

A “one” means the person is in your network. A “two” means this person is out of your network but someone within your network is connected to this person. A “three” means there is no obvious connection between the two of you. 

A wonderful feature in LinkedIn is that the site provides a schematic on how to connect to someone with a two or three posted by their name.

etc.

LinkedIn has several different accounts, including a free, personal one.  The site recommends the Business Plus that costs $50 a month.  Always start with the free basic accounts and upgrade depending on your needs.

LinkedIn uses your information to suggest connections based on commonalities.

LinkedIn also provides how many times your profile was viewed and how many times your profile appeared in searches.

There are other sites that try to provide the same services as LinkedIn, but LinkedIn is the most trusted.

LinkedIn, more than any other social networking site, allows you to take control of your online identity. This is very important because more companies are looking at LinkedIn for prospective employees.

Next week: It’s been a year, what have we learned?

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 john@cynopsis.com .

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
What if You Are Asked to Go Part Time?
by Stephen Pollan and Mark Levine

Most businesses act as if jobs become extinct overnight: keeping a full timer in a position until it makes no economic sense, and then firing the individual and eliminating the job. Increasing numbers of businesses in today’s environment are embracing a more graduated approach: turning a full time job into a part time position. While it is certainly less traumatic for the employee in the short term than immediate termination, the long term effect really is the same.

Few employees are in any position to absorb such a dramatic cut in their earned income. A handful who are devoted to their job, for one reason or another, may look to find another part time job to make up for the difference in pay. However the odds of finding a job that fits the newly abbreviated schedule are long. Most will simply use the free time to look for another full time job. Employers understand that’s the likely outcome. They’re simply trying to get the best of both worlds: cutting the cost of the job but keeping someone of proven capability in the position for as long as possible.

Trying to argue the company out of the move is wasted time and effort. No matter how logical or pragmatic your points they’ll be viewed as self serving and ignored. And if they desperately wanted to keep you as an individual they would have fired someone else and moved you into the open place. Instead, follow their lead and try to have your cake and eat it too. Explain that this move is, in effect, a termination, and ask for a severance package. But add that you’re willing to help them out by filling in as a part timer for as long as they need you up until you land a new position. Your part time pay, however long it lasts, can serve as a good supplement to your severance.

~ ASK THE EXPERTS ~
Questions from our Readers
Answered by  Stephen Pollan and Mark Levine

Here’s the situation: I am consultant for a subsidiary of a large company and learned of a job at the parent company from the person I report to. She was gracious enough to find out who the report is for the position and connect us via email. I sent my resume as requested with a cover letter on March 23 and have had no response. How long should I wait to follow-up? What should my strategy be?

When you’re pursuing what amounts to an internal job lead it’s even more important to achieve the subtle balance between being diligent and annoying. Follow up via the same form of initial approach after two to three weeks have passed with no acknowledgement. Then, let another two weeks pass before asking your gracious manager for yet more help. This time, simply ask if she can find out the status of the search and let you know.

What advice would your experts give to someone who wants to transition from a television career to a feature film career in the same discipline (i.e. Development)? This would be a mid-career change, so there should be some cross-over of skill sets, but are the two worlds mutually exclusive ‘clubs’? What networking tips could they offer? How would you best go about it in a resume? I’ve also heard about writing a two-column list of 4-8 bulleted “interests” near the head of the resume that would show areas of expertise that an employer might be looking for. Is this a good idea or just overkill?

Other than highly technical fields there are no exclusive clubs anymore. Beside the obvious scouring of any connections you have with the new industry, consider taking professional classes, attending seminars, and working trade shows and conferences. These aren’t just networking opportunities but changes to absorb jargon and put your existing skills in a context that makes sense to members of the new industry. Interest lists are rarely effective since they can miss the target and often are nothing more than parroted points from the ad.
