Cynopsis: Classified Advantage

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, March 5, 2013, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

After The Interview

After the interview may be the most important part of the hiring process. Why? Because most applicants do nothing post-interview.

Because of this oversight, this can be your time to shine and separate yourself from all other applicants.

Always send a thank you note to the interviewer. Hand written preferred over email but either way, this comes first. Make sure you spell your interviewer’s name correctly and touch on something that was said during the interview so the recipient knows you’re not simply dashing off a form letter.

About a week after the interview, call for a status update on the hiring process. It’s important that you are very brief and courteous during this call; you may want to ask if there’s any further information they need from you, or what their timeline is to decide on a candidate.

End the conversation with, “Please let me know either way.” They may not, but you have reminded them, once again, of you.

Even if you don’t get the job but felt your interview went well, call the interviewer and thank them for their consideration and ask to be kept in mind for any other openings at the company. This will demonstrate your professionalism, your eagerness to work, your confidence in yourself and your courtesy toward others. These are all attributes that hiring managers are looking for.

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.

QUANTUM LEAP What Would You Do If You Knew Your FUTURE?
Jessica Sitomer

In Quantum Leap, Dr. Sam Beckett travels through time and can see people’s lives through someone else’s body. In setting things right, from life to life, he hopes it will lead to a final leap back to his own life.

Sometimes as a coach, I feel like I am leaping between lives. My clients go through many hardships, and a few go through true devastation. These unfortunate situations have made me a little tougher on my more fortunate clients. I ask them how badly they really want success if they’re not even willing to write a mentor request letter. And as I kick them in the butt, they say to me, “Boy, if I’d only started doing this 5 years ago when I met you…”

That is now officially “NOT OKAY WITH ME.” No more “if I’d onlys!” It’s time to wake up! Do you remember where you were for the millennium on New Years Eve? I do. THAT WAS OVER A DECADE AGO!!! Time flies whether you’re having fun or not. Whether you make that work call or not. Time keeps ticking away.

Come up with 5 accomplishments that you want to achieve in the next year and the fears that are attached to them. Look at those fears right now. And don’t think I’m just preaching to you. I have fears with a capital F, and I am sick and tired of them dragging me along on their imaginary ride! So if this sounds personal, it is! 

I’m right there with you, I know that like me, you look at these fears and you beat yourself up knowing how irrational they are, and yet they stop you, if not paralyze you. But for how much longer? A call that may take you a month to make, can be made RIGHT NOW! Pick up the phone and make it, because your life won’t change until you do.

Are you reading these words and allowing them in? Your life won’t change until you decide that these D@#N fears that have been standing between you and your dreams are going to have to be bulldozed through!

When someone gets hit by a drunk driver and has to have surgeries for the rest of her life, like one of the BRAVEST actresses I know, she is scared, but she fights on.

When someone loses her husband and father of her two children to a brain tumor, like one of my BEST friends, she is terrified, bust she fights on.

When someone gets news that she has breast cancer, and she has two young babies, and can’t work now, and doesn’t get disability because she was a small business owner, like my DEAR young, neighbor, she is horribly frightened but she fights on.

These 3 women, have a glimpse of their future, and are fighting on, fighting for their precious lives. Let me give you a glimpse of what could be your possible future:

You accomplish all 5 actions you set for the next year. These actions lead to you getting 6 different jobs, where you make over 100K in 2013. On these jobs, you meet 42 people who will remain your close contacts for the next decade, leading to job after job. The confidence you get from the work and these close relationships, open you up to better relationships in your personal life. You move to your dream home. You make smart investments. You are happy, successful, and fulfilled, knowing that you will always be ale to create new opportunities and they will be in line with your values.

Does that sound like a future worth fighting for? Because fears are like the leaps Sam takes into the past and future, and like Sam, you’ve got to keep fighting them and leaping forward because the alternative is unspeakable and heartbreaking. 

And Action!

1.  Step to the edge of the cliff; pick the top 10 calls that you must take toward your 5 accomplishments you want to achieve in 2013, EVEN THOUGH THEY SCARE YOU.
2.  Jumpoff the cliff; Make all 10 calls today! Even if the first 9 are ill received, you make the 10th call.

You want different? Be different. Do different. Act different. Your results will make it all worth it and you will be forever changed. I’m pushing you as this year launches because I want you to succeed, sooner than later, so you can enjoy it and share it with everyone you love.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by
Jessica Sitomer

My mentor stinks. He was assigned by the general manager. Anything I can do?

I don’t know in which capacity your mentor stinks (not available to you, not knowledgeable, bad attitude, etc.), so it’s hard to give you a specific solution. Definitely seek out additional “unofficial” mentors.Mentors are meant to answer questions, advise you, make introductions, and in some cases allow you to shadow them. If your mentor stinks, take matters into your own hands and find people who can give you the help and guidance you need. On the other hand, if this is a specialized program created by the company and overseen by the general manager, you may want to have a constructive sit-down, about your needs and how the situation can be improved.

What changes do you see coming in a medium sized company?

I don’t have a crystal ball. Every company is different. If you follow politics there are changes that may happen due to policy changes and economics. I’d want to dig deeper and find out the question under the question. This is such a general question, I’d want to know, “What are your concerns or motives for asking this question?”
