Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
02.21.12

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, February 21, 2012, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

Finding Jobs Before they are Posted

If you read the industry trades, such as Cynopsis and all their editions, there are often clues that will help you find companies that are about to hire more people prior to any classifieds being placed. 

Anytime a company receives new capital, a letter to the HR department might be a very good idea.  You won’t know how much of the new money will be spent on personnel, but there’s a good chance that a decent amount of it will.  Write and send your resumes ASAP.

When a company announces a new service or product, they are going to need help in various departments to start and deliver the service or product.  While many of these positions will have been filled prior to the announcement, there is still a very good chance that the company will need more people to fulfill their needs.

Another time to contact a company is when they announce a major licensing agreement.  You can read about such agreements in our Cynopsis Kids! edition, almost on a daily basis.  These agreements mean more work and they will need more people to accomplish the additional work load.  Many times, this is true for both companies mentioned in the announcement, so don’t focus on just one company.

Press releases of record sales, earnings or growth are all reasons why companies expand their work force.  Many of the trades carry this type of information, as all public companies have to report their financial earnings.  Read and respond.

Multiple executive moves, which also can be read in our editions, are a clear sign of a company needing more people. Though the jobs are often lower paying positions, a job is a job, and a foot in the door when you don’t have a job is a great thing to have.

Be savvy, read all the industry trades, but in a moment of overt self promotion, remember all Cynopsis editions are free.

Pan Am: How to Make New Contacts with a Wingman
by Jessica Sitomer

Captain Dean Lowrey has his wingman, his First Officer, Ted Vanderway. Even the Pan Am stewardesses act as wingwomen for each other. They have each other’s backs and are always looking out for each other.

According to Wikipedia, a wingman is defined as a pilot who supports another in a potentially dangerous flying environment. Wingman was originally a term referring to the plane flying beside and slightly behind the lead plane in an aircraft formation.

For our purposes your wingman is your “ice-breaker.” So many people have obstacles around in-person networking. I’ve heard, “I’m shy,” “I don’t know how to break into a conversation,” and “I don’t like to go to events alone.” And these are only a few of the obstacles. Yet, in-person networking is one of the most valuable actions you can take for yourself and your career. Why? Because, face to face is the strongest form of communication.

Instead of getting caught up in the reasons why you don’t like to network, or the excuses for why you’re unsuccessful at it, accept that you must, and get yourself a wingman to help you overcome any reason or excuse.

Here are examples of how to best implement a wingman:

1.  I’m shy: Find a wingman who is outgoing, cares about you and your success, and is happy to be out and social.

Strategy: Tell your wingman how many people you want to meet, make sure your wingman knows how to introduce you, and send her off on her mission. She will find people to strike up a conversation with and pull you in.

2.  I’m fine once I start a conversation, but I don’t know how to break the ice: Find a wingman who will be your icebreaker.

Strategy: Point out to your wingman the person or group with whom you want to speak. An outgoing wingman, will bring you over and make an introduction. First he’ll introduce himself, and when the person or people make their introduction, he will introduce you. Then you’re in the conversation and you can take it from there.

3.  I can’t motivate to go to networking events: Have multiple event wingmen, who you push yourself to call and invite to events.

Strategy: Set up events in advance for the month with your various wingmen, so you can’t get out of it. When you choose your wingmen, let them know that you may get lazy or unmotivated and that they should not let you off the hook!

4.  I’m not good at “tooting my own horn”: Get a wingman who is. Let your wingman in on all of your successes and your strengths, and they will “toot that horn” for you.

Strategy: When you and your wingman get into a conversation with a person who asks what you do, you answer with the simple reply of “what you do” and your wingman jumps in and says, “Oh, she’s just being modest.” Then continues to sing your praises. Now, in this instance you’re only allowed to get away with this strategy for a little while. You’re objective is to listen to how your wingman speaks about you so that you will be able to “own” it for yourself. You must build your confidence to speak about your passion.
 
There are specific times when it’s the easier to make new contacts! Holidays. Because opportunities are everywhere you look- PARTIES! Most unions, studios, production companies, and entertainment organizations throw holiday parties. And if you can’t find them, throw them. If any part of this is making the butterflies in your stomach flutter, or if you just plain don’t like socializing at parties, then like the crew of Pan Am, you need a wingman.

Here are some tips for finding an effective wingman:

1. Find a wingman who is outgoing. He/she can be in the industry but doesn’t have to be. Your wingman can also be someone whom you can potentially hire. He/she will be more motivated to introduce you to people who can hire you knowing that once you’re working, you will hire your wingman.

2. Discuss your strategy plan with your wingman. Both of you can be on the look out for parties. Once there, your wingman knows precisely how many new people you want to meet and will share in your mission.

3. Should there be any awkward meetings, it is the wingman’s job to make a joke and build you back up. “There are plenty of pigeons in the air.” (For your sake, I hope your wingman is better at jokes than I am).

And Action!

1. Choose a wingman (or 2 or 3)

2. Schedule your party plan and stick to it

3. Get contact information for each new contact you make and follow up with a “happy new year” note/card (tip: carry a small notepad to jot down contact information for people who aren’t carrying business cards)

Not only are parties fun, people are also in a better mood than if you meet them in their office. Get ready for take-off.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by Jessica Sitomer

I have two facebook accounts, one for my private life and one for my professional life. I do not allow these two to intertwine. But I have a good friend who wants to join my professional account, and when I told him it was just for the professional side of my life, he took offense.

He claimed that I thought him untrustworthy enough to ban from my professional account in fears that he will embarrass me. I don’t think he will, but I do want to keep the two separate. How can I explain this to him if he doesn’t already understand?

This sounds like insecurity on his part. If you don’t think he would embarrass you, why does he think you think that? His issue. Stand strong, explain that you in no way think he will embarrass you, it’s simply a matter of boundaries, that you want to keep the two completely separate.

He has nothing to do with your business and it would be out of integrity for you and your professional friends to accept him on that page. Further more, accepting him could potentially open a big can of worms with other personal friends saying, “You invited him, why can’t I be invited?”

Tell him this is a professional boundary you will not cross, and you appreciate his understanding. If he persists you can ask him why it’s so important to him if he can’t let the situation go. Ask him what his personal motives are for being on your professional page. What would his purpose be for being there?

If he gives you a solid answer that has to do with your knowledge, you can offer that as a friend, you’d be happy to share your expertise with him in another way. If he doesn’t have a legitimate reason, you can say that it sounds like he’s testing your friendship and you don’ appreciate him playing games when it comes to your business.

You can tell him that you feel you are a good friend to him and if this is enough to affect your friendship, then perhaps he’s not the friend you thought he was.
