Cynopsis: Classified

 

Advantage

 

08.17.10

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, August 17, 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. 

The Final Impression

How you close an interview may be equally or more important than the interviewer’s first impression.  Nerves are often the reason why an interview may not begin well and is easily forgiven, but a strong finish will compensate for a slow start and may leave a very positive impression with the interviewer.  Plus, the end of the interview often gives the interviewee the opportunity to make one last pitch for the position.

As discussed last week, ask your well prepared questions.  Dazzle the interviewer with your knowledge of the company and your intelligence by asking discerning questions.

Sum up why you should get the job.  Try to avoid cliches such as, “I am an excellent team member,” and in its stead say, “My experience will add value to your company, my background illustrates how I have consistently exceeded company goals, and I have successfully implemented a number of cost saving strategies. I am confident that I am the right candidate for this position and this company.”  This statement outlines the reasons why you should be hired, you have addressed the company’s needs in a very specific way.

Before you leave the interview, always ask the interviewer if he/she has any questions or concerns about your candidacy.  This provides the opportunity to clear up any hesitations on their part before you leave.

Ask if there is any additional information needed, extra copies of your resume or reference letters, etc.

Ask about what happens next, what their process includes.  What is the time frame for the final decision?

Request their contact information so you can follow up.  Determine whether they prefer to be contacted by phone or email.

Reiterate your enthusiasm for the job, without sounding desperate.  Let them know how much you like the company and how all would benefit from you getting the position.

And finally, THANK THEM.  Stand up, make eye contact and give their hand a good shake while sincerely thanking them for this opportunity.

As stated in many previous Cynopsis articles, don’t forget to send a thank you letter to everyone that you met with, even if the interview didn’t go well.  Hiring managers consider this to be proper form and are amazed how many candidates neglect this step.

Next week: The Panel Interview

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 [email protected] .

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
How to Build and Keep your “Career Confidence”
by Gena Yuvette Davis

In these tough economic times, it is easy to have your confidence shaken when there is a lay-off or when you get passed over for a promotion, or when you didn’t get hired for that “dream job.” Even when things are going seemingly well, you feel that you must constantly prove your worth and value in order to keep your job.

Some people suffer from what is known as career insecurity. Career insecurity is the perceived fear of losing one’s employment and status.  According to Kimberly Roush of All Star Executive Coaching in the Los Angeles area, “many people place a lot of self-worth in their job or title. Without it, they fear they will be ‘nothing.’ Fear can be immobilizing and lead to inaction when action is the most critical.” She suggests, “thinking of yourself as an independent agent of your own career and strive to be proactive rather than reactive.”

With that said how do you build and keep your confidence as you move along your career path?  Here are six important tips to remember:

  • There is a saying by Oscar Wilde: “Be yourself because everyone else is taken.” This is so true. When you try to be someone else it could potentially be perceived as inauthentic.
  • Always do what you feel is right.  Even if others criticize your decisions.  Trust yourself.
  • Keep a positive support system around you at all times. Every career professional should have a mentor or coach in his or her corner.
  • Identify your successes in your career and in your life.  Write down your accomplishments, no matter how small. You will be amazed at how amazing you really are.
  • Think of failure as a good thing. Failure is all part of your success. If you haven’t failed, at least once, you’re not growing.
  • Be willing to take risks. If that means branching out on your own and starting your own business or taking another position to advance your career, then do it. Nothing says confidence more than taking a calculated risk.

Building your career confidence takes time.  Consider this, as you move up the career ladder, you will gain more skills and as a result, more confidence in your abilities.  Remember to ‘be you.’  By being yourself, knowing your value, trusting yourself and taking risks, your confidence will soar at each step in your career

~ ASK THE EXPERTS ~
Questions from our Readers
Answered by Gena Yuvette Davis

I do half of my bosses work, and after I got hired, I found out that my position is sort of a dead end because the company has no plans of promoting my boss. He loves me because I make his job so much easier. He tells other people he won’t let me go, but I want to move outward and upward but within the same company. I can’t tell the truth to HR, about doing his work for him, and discussions with him only end in empty promises. What should I do?

That is a tough one. I will assume that you do like your boss and you don’t want to let him down, but I would suggest that you stay true to yourself and focus on your career goals. Keep your eyes open for new opportunities within the company, be discrete, and if you see something that you feel would be a fit, apply. If that opportunity manifest into a potential job offer, explain to your boss again your desire to advance within the company and that an excellent opportunity has come your way. If he blocks you, find a new job at a different company.

Love my company, hate my job. A hiring freeze is in affect, any suggestions?

If you can stand to wait out the hiring freeze, do so. Focus on other aspects of your life: friends, family, hobbies, or maybe volunteer your time to a worthwhile organization. What you don’t want to happen is that you find a new job that you love, but hate the company; which could mean the job may not be as great as you think.
