Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
05.18.10

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, May 18, 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.

The Follow Up Letter

Before your interview ends, the interviewer should explain to you the remaining procedures of the hiring process.  This information should include; who will contact you, how they will contact you and give a time frame as to when this should occur.

If more than a week has passed and you have yet to hear from the company, write a follow up letter to politely inquirer about the status of the position. 

This letter should include:

  • Thanking the interviewer, state your name and qualifications,
  • Drive home your interest in the company and the position,
  • Recap parts of the interview that went well,
  • and let them know you look forward to hearing from them.

Avoid being negative.  Any use of antagonistic terms will only hurt your chances.

There’s no guarantee that this will work. The employer may have felt strongly that you weren’t a good fit for the position. However, a follow up letter can send a compelling message about your tenacity as a professional and your heartfelt interest in the company.

The Rejection Letter

Sending a letter, thanking the interviewer for his/her consideration, after being informed you did not get the position, is the best way of having them remember you.  Let them know, due to your strong desire to work for such an outstanding company, you would like to be considered for other suitable positions.  Write the letter in a positive and  confident manner, setting yourself apart from all the other applicants.

Economic News

Retail sales, factory output and business sales all gained in April, though the gains were not as great as they were in March.  The trend is attributed to more companies hiring.  This recovery is slower than previous ones because new jobs in many industries are still scarce, and the uncertainty in Europe is complicating matters.

Next week: Best Way to Ask for a Raise.

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 ~
24: How to Make the Most of Your Time
by Jessica Sitomer

Jack Bauer never has enough time in the day. He’s got to save the country and time management is of essence.

One of the biggest obstacles I hear is, “I don’t have enough time.” Like Jack, we all have the same 24 hours in a day; it’s how you use them.

Here are some strategies to try out:

1. The To-Do List: for people who are motivated by crossing things off a list. There are a few ways to use the to-do list:
        a. Have a fluid list where you tackle the tough stuff first, cross out and add as you go along, and always prioritize it.
        b. Have a to-do list of 3 priorities for the day and get them done. Then crumple up     the list and go about your day.
        c. Have a yearlong business plan, broken down into months, then into weeks, then        into days. This plan is also fluid as different projects come and go and priorities change.

2.Time Chunking: in your calendar, chunk out your time. Literally schedule your week. You can have different colors for personal, health, business. You can break business time down further into administrative work, money/job generating work, creative brainstorming, and maintenance work.

3. Manage Your Distractions: Do you have any idea how much time you waste checking and responding to emails and social media, during time chunks that should be specifically for money/job generating work? Turn off your email and your Internet, and turn it back on during the administrative chunk of your day. Get out of the house if you have to.

4. Just Say No: That’s the beauty of creating a schedule on your calendar for the week/month. When your friend who likes to vent about how bad business is, wants to have lunch, you say no. Blame it on your calendar, but setting boundaries is a MUST for time management.

5. Manage Your Mail: Have an email folder specifically for things you have to get to but aren’t top priorities, and have a day and time frame dedicated to this folder.

Remember that the biggest obstacle in regards to time is the energy spent “spinning” on the drains that are on your mind. Be like Jack, and decide what takes place between the hours of 9:00am and 5pm.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by  Jessica Sitomer

I have been in the media industry for 12 years and I am ready to move. Of all the cities in the US, where are my best chances to get a job in the industry? Possibly top three?

The top 3 cities to get an entertainment industry job in the US, is a subjective question. Let me start my answer by saying, that national unions tend to have their main office in Los Angeles, their second largest branch in NYC, and their third is a toss up between Chicago and Orlando. I always say that difference between NYC and LA is that in NYC you can be walking the street amongst entertainment people, but you’re also surrounded by bankers, real estate agents, plumbers, electricians, teachers, etc. In LA, you can be walking by your gardener who happens to also be Teri Hatcher’s gardener. Your doctor can be married to the producer of Twilight. The 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon become more like 3 degrees in LA, which is much better for networking. The LA, NYC, Chicago/Orlando order has also been the order of most-to-least production going on, in the past, and while some would say it’s still true, with tax incentives in so many states, production is popping up abundantly in many states.

Here are the reasons I say using the words “top cities” is subjective: 1. You didn’t mention your classification. If you’re a writer it doesn’t matter if a TV show is shot in New Mexico, if the writers room is in Los Angeles. So, knowing where you have a better chance of being hired must be a factor. 2. You have to decide what kind of lifestyle you want for yourself. There’s a big difference between a Chicago winter and an Orlando winter. 3. The paces of each city are very different, as are the networking and filmmaking communities. 4. The number of productions that come into each city differ. That means, that there may be a lot more projects being shot in LA, but there is also a lot more competition. It tends to be relative. 

Is mobile technology the next big thing as far as television? I have time to take classes (laid off) what is the next big thing and how can I prepare for it?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but if people knew how to accurately predict what the next big thing would be, our industry wouldn’t be like gambling in Vegas. But, that is the nature of our industry so you have to gamble. My advice, is to read the trades consistently, get mentors who are “in the know” and pick their brains as to where they think the industry is headed, and yes, take classes to stay current on the latest technology. The more educated you are on the industry changes that are occurring at record speeds, the more confident you’ll feel as you place your bets.

RESUME TIPS  (part 3)
By Zig Gauthier

•        DOMINATE.

•       Most people analyze resumes from their individual, self-interested perspective. Please begin analyzing it from the perspective of the marketplace and the hiring manager/human resources executive. In Hollywood, there are hundreds of people available for every open position. Job listings usually receive literally hundreds of resumes. Human resources executives are looking for red flags to eliminate candidates as quickly as possible to narrow the field. Your objective is to have the most professional, perfect resume possible as the resume pool is narrowed from 500+ resume submissions to the 10- 20 who get an interview. Thus, how do you prevent yourself from being one of the 480-490+ discarded resumes? By following the tips below to perfection.

•       Legible name & contact info.

•       It should look professional.

•       Appropriate outgoing phone message.

•       Appropriate, professional email address.

•       Non-work email.

•       Use a portable email (Yahoo vs. Verizon).

•       Include these categories on your resume:
                 Objective/Clearly state what position you are seeking and qualified for
                 Education       
                 Experience      
                 Skills/Personal Profile

•       Avoid numbers/quantifiable – Years past, there were countless recommendations to “quantify everything.” The problem is that everyone copied this directional shift and began using numbers that lost credibility as well. Avoid generic “managed sales of $43 million and growth of 65% when possible, as it often loses credibility in this area of entertainment.”

•       Check for repetition as well as spelling and grammar errors.

•       Tailor your resume.

•       Professional list of RELATED, PROFESSIONAL references on resume paper.

•       No embellishments – Do not lie under any circumstances.

•       No overselling – Too many assistant level individuals focus their resumes on their great creative contributions and turning the company around. The information describing previous assistant positions should start by selling the domination of the assistant duties (phones, calendar, rolling calls, etc.). When hiring an assistant, first and foremost, the executive wants to know that the assistant duties will be handled. Beyond that, don’t oversell as it takes credibility away from everything.

•       Language fluency and proficiency in technology are desirable in an increasingly Web-based, multilingual economy. Mention those skills.

•       Listings under experience should be in chronological order (most recent listed first).

•       Avoid out of date reference contact information. Your references should closely align with recent positions, in a similar order when possible.

•       Avoid flowery graphic design. Resumes are a professional document, not an art project.

•       Don’t go overboard on fonts, colors, borders, boldface and underlining.

•       Avoid clip art and other graphics such as photos. This isn’t a middle-school project.

•       Switching back and forth from multiple sizes of bullet points to dashes and from “Calif.” to “CA” suggests carelessness.

•       Do not ever send or attach photos with a resume submission.

•       Do not include links to Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc. on your professional resume.

•       Save it as a PDF with a proper name (not marketing resume, or new resume); save it as First name Last name Resume (i.e.: – John Doe Resume).

•       Lastly, pick ONE first name and use it permanently. Pick one personal, professional email and use it perfectly. Your name and your email address are part of your brand.
