Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
02.09.10

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, February 9, 2010, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: 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.

What Rules?

Unusual times. Not many rules, not anymore. While some rules still apply for traditional means of getting a job such as resumes, cover letters and interview strategies, anything you do with social media or personal web sites, it’s game on.

Anything you do with social networking in effort to get a job may be a complete failure, or may become a new industry standard. We are at the infancy of all this and “experts” get paid a lot of money for giving advice. Be cautious though, getting a job through social networking is too young for genuine experts, they are just people giving their best guess with no history to back them. This is not to say they will be wrong, but be careful.

Actually, forget careful … be creative, be daring, be outrageous, be smart, be inventive! Examine the tools, get to know them and use them to find other ways of networking and personal branding. New applications are coming out almost daily for social networks – look for them and determine if they can assist you.

Social networking is aimed at helping with the most traditional rule in getting a job, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. But I suggest a better version of this adage, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know well. I believe if you concentrate your social networking efforts in getting to know people well enough that they feel comfortable recommending you rather than trying to get 500 connections on LinkedIn, that you will have better results in getting a job. How do you get to know people well through social networking? Game On.

So who are the pioneers of social networking? We are.

Good Economic News

The Bureau of Labor Statistics posted the unemployment rate for January at 9.7%. The drop was unexpected by many economist but is seen as a slow but definite trend towards recovery. Until it can be determined if the recovery will continue after the stimulus measures fade this spring, many experts believe that the recovery will continue to be gradual at best. However, both the work week and temporary jobs grew in January, both seen as a leading indicator towards economic growth.

Next week: Ralph Kramden

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 ~
Downsized? What to do Next?
by Michael Pollock

What to do when you have been downsized from a shrinking industry?

You’ve itemized your strengths and skills and passions. You’ve talked to all your contacts and collected all the information and suggestions you can. You’ve gotten engaged in meetups and blogs specific to each area of interest. And you fervently hope that in one moment of well-informed decision-making you’ll find the right answer: where all the facts combine and all the opportunities make themselves apparent and your way will be clear to a shining future.

But it doesn’t work like that. Not least because our brains can’t choose between more than seven options. Nor can we make a choice in the absence of the emotional input. (Yes you heard me, the emotional piece is important – go read Jonah Lehrer’s book How to Decide, about the neuroscience of decision making.)

So pick some of your most promising options and get involved. Do them. Try them out for size and feel. Blog on the topic. Volunteer you will likely find there are NGOs or nonprofits that need those very skills that you have and can give you experience and work credit. Or try internships it’s never too late.

How about a getting a paying job while you search? A CEO interviewed recently says that everyone should have sales experience and I agree with him wholeheartedly. So go work in a shoe shop, or be a bellboy in a fancy hotel and sell your services for tips (I did). My son worked for several months in an outdoor store. He soon learned how to sell things. He learned which items paid higher commission, what words would persuade the customer (“That ‘s the one I use myself” was always good), how to steer them from one item to another, and so on. He was salesperson of the month several times in a row. He now applies these fundamental skills to his work in science, where he needs to persuade his advisors, his funders and his peers that his solution has the best hope of success. We all need to persuade someone of something charmingly and effectively not least we need to persuade someone to give us a job.

If you are still blank, try going somewhere else. Facebook lets you find where your school friends are living go and visit them. Couch surf. They might be in Phoenix or Seattle – or Hong Kong. When you stop off in Beijing or Charlotte, visit some companies and see what you learn. Then when you are back home interviewing again you can cite your special understanding of the Chinese market or wherever. Everything you do is enriching your experience and your value to someone.
Bottom line is don’t just sit and wait. And nothing beats putting your toe in the water and seeing how it feels.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by Michael Pollock

What’s the deal with companies that tell you to submit your resume online? Do the HR departments at these companies actually go through the resumes that get submitted? It seems as though your resume ends up in the black hole and seems like the worst way to apply for a job. Is there a way around this?

It certainly often seems like that black hole. When I ask people whether they ever hear anything back the response rate is small to zero. But I think it’s a case of “you’ve got to be in it to win it.” (Oh sorry, that’s the state lottery tagline.) If you want their job you have to do it their way.

Very often the content you submit goes into a searchable database without being seen by a human being. Then when the overworked HR person (yes you should have sympathy for him) has an opening, he will search the database for the keywords that have been defined for this position.

These keywords could be task specific like “SEO” or “inside sales”. Could be a title like “Supervising Producer” or “Channel Marketing Director.” They could be action words like “led” or “developed.” They could include “reality” or “food” or “news” or “music”. You’ll get the best clues to the required words from the job posting itself. This should tell you what they are looking for, so include their words (though please err on the side of the truth they will find you out if you make it up.) Once they have found the subset of resumes with the required 3 or 12 keywords then someone will be looking at the resume to make a short list. The way around all this is to cultivate people in the organization. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 70 percent of all jobs are found through networking.

Find someone you know who knows someone there and get a conversation started. Get to know what they need. The personal introduction provides validation and in the end they are going to hire a person and not a set of keywords so if you can jump the database queue and get your human self into the game that is your best chance of success.

Are there headhunters specific to the TV/Media industry- or is your only option an agent? If there are headhunters- where would I find them?

There are headhunters and recruiters who focus on the TV/media industry, but each of them has a limited number of hiring clients who choose to work with them. No single recruiter is going to be able to open up the whole world of TV/media to you. You can certainly search for industry specific recruiters online – for example the NATPE site has a few recruiters posted.

The fees the hirer pays outside headhunters are not trivial, so many companies have drastically cut back. One way to find out which recruiters are used by a firm that you are interested in is to ask their HR people who they like. You don’t even have to present yourself as a job-seeker just be someone who is looking for recommendations for trusted executive recruiters. You will learn something from this the hirer’s opinion is the one that counts after all.

An agent really does fill a different role – and may be more appropriate to your needs. One difference: you pay the agent the hirer pays the recruiter. So do your due diligence. Call up agents, call up recruiters. Practice your pitch on them and ask them what they can do for you. Listen and ask tough questions. Weigh up the costs and the benefits. Do you trust them? Get references.

For a moment here you will be in the hiring seat, See how it feels and remember what motivates you to make the decision, those feelings may well be going through the mind of the potential employer you will soon be meeting. And do call them back, don’t leave them hanging this is karma that will come back to you!
