6 Ways to Become a Purple Squirrel

By Michael Pollock

A Purple Squirrel is what recruiters call that elusive, more-than-perfect candidate who all employers dream of and hold out for: the one who will make their business sing.  A Purple Squirrel will meet all their constantly evolving job specs – and far exceed them. But Purple Squirrels have to be sought out – they don’t just show up.

So how do you become a Purple Squirrel? Mainly it’s how you behave in your current situation; So let’s assume you’ve been discovered and tapped for an interview.  Here’s some of what it takes. 

Be out ahead in your field and your company. 

Develop solutions to problems before anyone knows they are problems. Be the go-to person who achieves beyond expectation. When people ask for you, they speak of only you  not in a bracket with a bunch of other contenders.

Be excited about your work. 

Be passionate: come up with fresh ideas, break new ground  and importantly, inspire others to do more and to want to do it better. Be a motivating team leader and in-demand mentor to rising stars.

Understand what is needed, not just what is wanted.

This applies in your present gig and also for that new opportunity. You don’t just do what is asked of you, you surprise, adding value at all stages. When the interview beckons, do your homework. Utterly understand the sector and the company; ask good questions, listen intelligently, express a point of view about where they are headed and how you will help make that happen. Know as much as you can about your interviewer’s job history and what will light her fire.

Be clear about your value and believe in it.

Get the interviewer fired up with vivid accounts of your achievements. Let these stories demonstrate that you will surely do more for them than they had even hoped. Be confident that you have what they need and that it would be a wonderful thing for them and for you to advance into the future together.

Tell them what you need from them to get results.

Since you are the Purple Squirrel they had thought they’d never find, they’ll be more than ready to discuss. Remember, it’s about the work, not you. Tell them you really want to do this, and say so with feeling.

Get your network on board.
 
When they read about your successes on LinkedIn and in other groups, they’ll be so impressed they will eagerly pass on the word and endorse you. “You have to have this guy – he’s just what you need.”

I asked a recruiter about her experience finding these elusive candidates. To my dismay she had not heard of the Purple Squirrel – so I told her what one is and she immediately said “Oh, you mean a One-Legged Unicorn.”
