Cynopsis: Classified

 

Advantage

12.06.11

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, December 6th, 2011, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

To the People who read Cover Letters:

First of all, we apologize, your job sounds terrible.  Reading cover letters all day must be difficult to say the least.  We understand that your job is about the elimination process more than the hiring process.  We, as the authors of the cover letters, would like to make sure we are not eliminated for the wrong reasons; reasons you may have learned in school but simply are not true or no longer apply.

Such as …

Split Infinitives.  Since A Plea for the Queen’s English by Henry Alford, it has been forbidden to split an infinitive.  But Mr. Alford’s reasoning was misguided and wrong.  His basis for the rule was that in Latin, you cannot split an infinitive.  Okay, but English is a Germanic language, not Latin.  Furthermore, Mr. Alford decided that to was part of the infinitive, which it is not.  An infinitive is the simplest form of a verb.  That’s it. 

Grammarians have tried their best to debunk this rule, citing a split infinitive is often preferable over a non-split infinitive.  How so?  My plumber threatened to more than double his fee.  According to Alford, this is a split infinitive, but the sentence states the intention of the plumber in a clear and concise manner.  It is difficult to convey the same meaning without splitting the infinitive. 

Starting a sentence with And, But or Or.  English teachers were fond of telling students that conjunctions were meant to connect elements within a sentence, but not sentences themselves.  Oops.  Don’t overdo it, but there is nothing wrong with starting a sentence with conjunctions.  And in case you think all conjunctions are short words, you can also start a sentence with because or however.

Do we really need to use Datum anymore?  Can’t we all agree that data can be singular or plural?

None, meaning no one, is always singular.  Again, oops.  The origins of none is actually “not any of a number of things” and its usage is more commonly plural.

And we have stated this before, but you can end a sentence with a preposition.  There are very few grammarians who still enforce the idea that you cannot. 

Finally, the idea of two spaces after each period has gone by the way of the typewriter, same for indenting paragraphs.  Not to say either one of these are wrong, but they are dated and not necessary.

So please, don’t eliminate us because you’ve spotted one of these “errors”.  They are not incorrect, but eliminating us because of them, is.

Next Issue:  Questions to ask during an 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 ~
Find “Insiders” to Open Doors During Your Job-Search Process
by Joel Garfinkle

With the economy stubbornly stuck in neutral and even more graduates flooding the work force, the competition for available positions is fiercer than ever.  In 2010, the average number of applicants for each job was nearly 70, up from 48 in 2009.  I shudder to think what the latest statistics would reveal.

If you’re conducting a job search, you should assume you will be vying against as many as 100 worthy competitors, many who are as qualified perhaps even more so than you are.

So how can you stand out from the crowd?  By showcasing your leadership skills.  Hiring managers aren’t just looking to fill slots, they are searching for future leaders who can help them take their companies to the next level.

What traits are they looking for?

Recently, PsychTests.com, a firm specializing in personality, career, and IQ assessments, conducted a survey into what separated great leaders from the also-rans.  Here are the traits that topped their list:

Goal setting. Prospective employers look for new hires who can set goals and create a workable action plan to achieve them.

Motivating others. The ability to motivate others to work toward a common goal is a key leadership trait that will make you stand out to the hiring manager.  Provide examples of times that you have rallied the troops to get them excited about completing an important project.

Coaching.  A good leader is willing and able to help the other members of their team develop to their greatest potential.

Problem solving.  Every project has its obstacles.  A leader will attack them with gusto and refuse to let them get in the way of meeting the deadline for completing the project and achieving his or her objectives.

Vision. In order to lead, you must be able to see where you are going.  How clear is your vision when you are working on a project?  Can you visualize the end result?

Setting an example.  Leaders lead by example.  Your team is looking to you to demonstrate the behaviors that they should be emulating.  What do they see?

Agreeableness.  The ability to get along well with others is a key trait that human resources managers look for when deciding which candidate to hire for a position.  Conflicts between employees will make their own jobs more difficult.

Conscientiousness.  Attention to details is an important leadership trait.  You don’t want to micromanage everything, but you do need to be a careful planner and be diligent about following up to ensure that everything is on schedule.

Open-mindedness.  Good leaders are open to new ideas and thoughts. They listen to input from others instead of limiting themselves to what they think they know.

The more you personify these leadership traits throughout your job search, the more likely you’ll stand out from the dozens of others fighting for the same position.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by
Joel Garfinkle

If a company is using a scanner for its resumes, does a two page resume hurt my chances?

The total number of pages in your resume is unimportant when a company is using a scanner to process incoming resumes. Keyword density is much more important than the length of the resume itself. Electronic resumes are generally between one and three pages in length and contain a large number of keywords chosen to be applicable to the job you are applying for.

Keywords are words or phrases that are used to describe your qualifications and experience as well as your personality traits.  An employer will determine which keywords to look for in the resumes.  The resumes that are received electronically will be prescreened for the desired keywords before they are looked at by human eyes. It is important to have as many keywords as possible in your resume to improve your chances of getting your resume seen by a human.

I’ve been hearing more about executive biographies, what are they and who are they for? Should everyone looking for a job have one?

An executive summary is a one-page summary of an executive’s work history utilized by company executives who are seeking new employment.  Executive summaries are not for every business job seeker but are more common for an executive with an extensive employment background.

An executive summary is written in the third person and highlights an executive’s career progression.  It does not include bulleted points commonly found in resumes but is written in paragraph form and is restricted to one page of writing.  An executive summary should not include contact information and it is unnecessary to emphasize text with underlining or bolding words or phrases.
