Cynopsis: Classified

 

Advantage

08/30/11

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, August 30, 2011, and this is your weekly issue of Cyn opsis: Classified Advantage! 

How to Get Ahead

Dress at least one level above your current position.If everyone is wearing a shirt and khakis, wear a dress shirt, tie and dress pants. Everyone wearing a tie and sports coat? Wear a suit.

Volunteer for the jobs no one else wants. This will demonstrate your willingness to put the needs of the company’s above your own.

Make presentations! I’ve written about this before but there is no better way to allow the maximum amount of people in the smallest amount of time, know that you are a great communicator, than by making presentations. Just make sure they are interesting and interactive.

Keep the discussion of your social life at work, to a minimum. Be polite when asked about the weekend, but be brief. Asking someone about their weekend can be an error on your part because you may hear about their entire weekend. Remember, this is work.

Do your homework and become an expert in as many aspects of your job as possible. When someone is having difficulties, you want to be the person they think of first for assistance.

Educate yourself as much as you can about your company, your competitors and your industry. This will allow you to have an insightful conversation with those who are several positions above you.

Find yourself a mentor, listen and heed their advice.

Be available and willing to mentor others.

Never complain or get involved with gossip. As innocent or as confidential as it may seem, it may come back to bite you.

Learn the software that your bosses use. When asked in an interview, you can honestly say that your transition will be very smooth because you’re already familiar with the software required.

Above all, if you want to be promoted, think like the boss. Demonstrate your ability to make tough decisions, delegate wisely, and put the company’s needs ahead of your own.

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
Looking For A Job?  Do You Have A Communication Plan?
by
Michael Pollock

Most people spend a lot of time fussing with their resume. I myself never met a resume I didn’t want to rewrite – even the one I rewrote myself last week.  All this is good: your resume provides an invaluable structure for you to craft your story, putting together your successes and experience highlights, incorporating your insights about the hirer’s needs and expressing all this in a way that will move her to call you. 

But don’t spend all your available time on this.  You should commit a significant portion of time to developing yourself a communications plan.  Getting your story into the right ears is not just about a few sporadic phone calls or emails.  It needs a full on, 360-degree strategic plan for reaching the people you will identify as your target hirers.

Here is an outline of how you can get started:

Goal – identify what you want to be doing in three to five years time and what new jobs, skills and experiences can help you towards that goal
Targets – who do you need to reach:

The person who can hire you at a company and for a job that will move you in the right direction,
The person who can network you to that person.
Research – in which you learn all you can possibly learn about:

Companies and jobs that you like the look of,
Industries and niches that can expand your experience,
What the thought leaders in your business are talking about.
Message – this is what your resume creation process has identified: it states explicitly or implicitly the problem you solve and clearly lays out your unique value to a hirer.
Channels to reach your targets: decide which ones are appropriate and in what combinations.  Here a few to get you started:

Email,
Phone calls,
Drive to your website or portfolio site,
LinkedIn,
Other social media: Twitter, Facebook, blog etc.,
Attending networking events, conferences and seminars,
Most importantly: working your very own personal network of connections – and by extension, theirs.
Action:

Finalize your materials – portfolio, website, LinkedIn, resume,
Make sure they are all consistent with your story,
Prioritize your contacts and start reaching out,
Record the outcome of each connection you make and plot your next steps.

As with all such advice, take it in and make it work for you in your own style and with knowledge of your own resources.  But don’t ignore it.  These are important considerations.  An effective job search is not for the lazy or fainthearted!

Questions from our Readers
Answered by
Michael Pollock

I was under-employed at Company A. So I took a job with Company B (still under-employed, but a new industry for me to learn). I started with Company B on June 1. Company A since came back into my life and offered me a raise and a promotion, so I accepted. When it’s all said and done I will have worked for Company B for less than three months. But while at Company B I learned a tremendous amount, especially within social media.

My question is this, do I include my brief time at Company B on my resume? What will that “job hopping” look like to future potential employers? Will it be thought of as odd to see a person leave a company only to come back three months later?

I like that you learned so much.  Presumably this SM experience makes you a better value to Company A.  In the short term, perhaps this could be expressed in some way as a special assignment or leave during which you got this SM experience, rather than giving it the full equivalent of two job hops.  This could be suggested by layout and in the way you speak of it.  “I took a break at Company B where I picked up skills that made me even stronger and more value to Company A.” 

But really, you’ve just gone back to Company A with a raise and a promotion, so I don’t guess you are planning to leave any time soon.  By the time you are ready to move on I would hope that considerable time will have elapsed and that side trip can just disappear from the resume and the SM skills you learned will be amply demonstrated by the successes you have had at Company A.

If my resume demonstrates my experience in a particular area, how would it be best to proceed in seeking a job opportunity in a different area outside my field of expertise?

Example: I have 7 years of experience in video production but want to pursue a career in marketing.

Start by carefully researching the field you want to enter.  Look at jobs available for which you might be qualified and study the way they are described.  Talk to people who work in the field and figure out which aspects appeal to you and would match your strengths.  Then review all your work history and other experience through the eyes of someone hiring for these positions.  Strip away the overarching “video production” words and see what else there is. 

Examples of areas you might have chops in could include sales, food, sports, history, international, crisis management, PR, advertising, technology etc.  See which niches and experiences from your prior work (stripping out the video production words) relate to your new target business and describe those experiences accordingly.   You should say clearly why you are excited to bring these valuable skills and experiences to the new field – this would the way to frame your approach.
