Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
12.14.10

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, December 14, 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. 

Drug Test Screening

Generally there are five types of tests you may be asked to complete when looking for a job; Drug, Aptitude, Skills, Integrity and Personality tests.

The drug test should be the easiest to pass, yet the US Department of Labor estimates that over $100 billion are lost each year due to employee drug use, lost work time, accidents and health care costs associated with drug use.  It may prove useful to know the general guidelines concerning drug screening.

First a disclaimer, laws vary from state to state and you should not use this article as anything but a general guideline.  I am not an attorney, nor do I play one on television.

Legality

If a test is done without the applicant’s knowledge and/or consent, this can result in serious legal problems for the company.

If an applicant refuses the test, most companies are within their rights to treat it the same as a positive test.

Otherwise, employers have the right to ensure a drug free workplace.  These rights include testing all job applicants, though in some states, the test can only be administered after the position has been formally offered on condition of a negative test result.

Most employers, in effort to stay clear of legal entanglements, have written policies concerning drug testing procedures.  Most policies include written notice prior to any test, type of test and under what conditions, a general requirement of all employees to remain drug free, employee options in regards to a positive test result, and who among the employees may be tested.  In most cases, this is everyone, to avoid any possibility of discrimination.

Procedure

The most common and cheapest of tests is the collection of a urine sample.  The sample is sent to a certified lab and results are usually available within 24-48 hours.  There are instant result kits, but if a sample tests positive, it must be sent to a lab for retesting.

What substances are tested for?

The most common drug screening test is called a “Five-Screen”, which test for marijuana, cocaine, PCP, amphetamines and opiates.

There is a “Ten-Screen”, that includes the above, plus popular pharmaceuticals such as Qualuudes, Xanax and Valium.

What a Positive Test Means

If a drug test returns positive, most companies will test again, with an independent lab.  If the test again returns positive, a physician will call the candidate to see if there is a medical reason for the positive results.  At this point, some companies will allow the candidate to take the test again, but the candidate will have to pay for the tests.

Chances of a false positive are slim.  The company should keep all results confidential.

Privacy

The Supreme Court has ruled that urine or blood tests are legal when properly conducted.  One person of the same sex may be present, (purposely vague) while the test is conducted, but otherwise, the sample must be collected in private.

The candidate has the right to privacy, and is allowed to ask about the procedure and the testing.  A candidate may also ask about the reliability of a test result, and again, pay for additional testing at a lab of their choice.

Who Gets Drug Tested?

If one person in a certain position gets drug tested, all people who hold the same position should be tested.  Companies can choose which positions are to be drug tested, but they cannot pick individuals to be drug tested.

Are there legal drugs that can interfere with the drug test?

Yes, that is why the administrator of the test will usually ask what prescribed or OTC drugs you are currently taking.  Legally speaking, prescribed medication cannot be used against you in the hiring process.

Can the tests be beaten?

No.  Despite what you might have read, even if illegal substances are masked, the labs also test for masking agents.  A positive test for a masking agent can be treated by the employer the same as a positive drug test.

If any of this is a cause for concern, perhaps finding a job isn’t the first problem you should deal with.

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
Owning The Stage
by Steve Thomson

If you -like me – believe that every time we talk to someone we are making a presentation, whether it’s a career critical pitch or interview or just a casual chat at a social event, then you – like me – will want to make the best and most memorable impression possible.

One of the keys to this is your non-verbal communication or body language.

My work over the years has led me to the understanding that something like 50% of what people take away from a presentation and can later recall is delivered in the form of non-verbal communication, so you can see that it’s vitally important that your body is saying the same things as your mouth.

We give off something in the order of 500 signals a second non-verbally, and can read and interpret about 3 times that much.

Naturally this is all happening at speed that your conscious mind can’t deal with, so it’s down to your unconscious to do the hard work.

This means that what your audience is getting from your body language is ‘gut feel’, and if their gut tells them that you don’t really believe what you are saying, or that you’re not as knowledgeable as you sound, then that’s what they’ll remember.

So if it’s that career critical pitch that you are delivering when they get this negative gut feel you might find yourself on the wrong end of a professional kick in the pants!

The single easiest way to avoid this is to always present with integrity, by which I mean always try to either deliver your own material, or at the very least make sure the material is in your own words. Develop a congruence of thinking, so that you truly feel that you own and believe in what you are saying.

An understanding of a few of the non-verbal ‘biggies’ will also help:

  • Posture – make it confident. Stand tall and straight.
  • Get out into the open – Don’t stand behind anything. Get yourself out where they can see you. To do otherwise look defensive and weak.
  • Avoid repetitive gestures – if you think you might do the same little physical thing again and again…don’t! If you’re not sure, then have someone video you making a presentation, and play it back in fast forward. You’ll soon identify anything you have as a physical ‘tic’.

Working with many high profile individuals within sport, media and industry, he is widely regarded as an innovator in presentation and communication skills. Steve is Project Director of London based Profile Training with clients worldwide.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by Steve Thomson

I think the biggest problem for me is that the only way to get hired these days is to have an internship. I’ve had six, most during my summer vacations, and now that I’m a college grad I’m ineligible for internships. It’s incredibly frustrating and seems unfair to have been working since HS to build a career that, because of the state of the economy when I graduated, seems impossible to attain now. I’d love to find a PA job on a television series and am willing to work my way up but just don’t know what else to do.

That said, my question(s) to you would be:

-How can I continue to use my skills and contacts to leverage my career? Am I doing enough to find work?
-Is this just a sign of the times or is it time for me to pursue another career? I’m concerned about leaving the industry, and not sure what else I’d want to do now.
-Are other people having the same problems and how do they work around it?

Any advice would be greatly helpful as I am feeling at a loss for what to do next.

Well, I count 5 questions there, so rather than answer each one, I think it best that I offer some general advice that might give you a clearer view of what direction to take. Firstly, the experience you gained by doing those internships is invaluable, not just to you, but also to your future employers. Go back through each one, and identify what aspects of the work you did in that specific internship you can take pride in and offer as a benefit to a prospective employer. Second piece of advice: Don’t give up on your chosen career just because you can’t walk into a job. When things become scarce they become more valuable, and that goes for jobs just as much as for diamonds or whatever. Because of this, there are more people chasing the jobs that do come up, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to get one of them. It’s just a matter of finding the opportunity and being better suited to the post than the other guys. When you do get an interview, do some research on the organization and the job being advertised, then go back to your internships and find the one where the aspects you identified as being proud of most closely fit the needs and profile of the company to which you are applying. Your pride in work done will have a profound effect on the way your non-verbal communication comes across to the interviewing panel or individual. Remember  people are employed for attitude and trained for aptitude. Your attitude has to be a positive and optimistic one, not the ‘poor me, when will I ever get a chance’ kind. Good luck, and DON’T GIVE UP!

I am looking for positions and most available jobs, I am over-qualified. Should I offer to sign a contract of employment that will keep me at the company for 1-2 years? Will that ease the anxiety of the employer that I won’t bolt as soon as a better job comes to my attention? What are the drawbacks to me if I do this other than the obvious?

You use the term ‘over-qualified’, and it’s a phrase I hear often, from both jobseekers and employers, but when you look closely at it, the term is meaningless, unless you move down the ladder within one organization. Every company has different means, methods and structures, so a manager in one company may actually be the exact equivalent of an account executive in another, or a VP in a third! I know this doesn’t help you when the company to which you are applying thinks that you are overqualified, but it’s up to you to persuade them that a) you are really enthusiastic about their organization, and would happily take a perceived drop in status to be involved with them; b) You have, up to now, been a big fish in a small pond, with little chance of real advancement due to the limitations of your previous employment; or c) You were overstretched in your last post, and realize that it would be a better course for your career if you were to step back a little and take some time to reinforce your knowledge and understanding of the job and the industry by working with a great organization such as…

Now, it might go against the grain to eat humble pie in this way, but if you can do so it will play to the collective ego of the organization to which you are applying, and might just get you over the hurdle of that ‘over-qualified’ stigma. As ever, GOOD LUCK, and remember to walk into an interview as though you already have the job!
