Cynopsis: Classified Advantage

Good morning.  It’s Tuesday, June 26, 2012, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

Your Time

When you are looking for a job, you need all the assistance you can get.  Here are some tips on how to be more productive with your time, increasing your chances of getting the job you want.

If it’s really important, do it in the morning.  While figuring out your day, schedule the most important things in the morning.  As the day goes on, more and more reasons will pop up that will make your original schedule either impossible or at least, less important.  This is why fitness experts suggest working out in the morning, before excuses get in the way.  If it is important, do it first thing.

Take breaks during the day.  As much as we want to be a machine and crank out twenty individual resumes a day, the work will suffer if you don’t take a break at least 3-4 times a day.  These breaks don’t have to be very long at all, but they are necessary and invaluable because they’ll help recharge your brain, therefore better resumes.

Laugh.  Laughing is as important to the brain as exercise is to the body.  It unclutters, resets and invigorates the mind.  Right now I have a Jim Gaffigan concert on my desktop.  Once or twice a day, I listen to it for about 5 minutes and get a really good laugh.  I feel better and my work is better.

Prep.  The night before, I do everything I can to make the next day easier.  I do this so I don’t toss and turn in bed, wondering if I should have done more before I went to sleep.  Because of this, I sleep better and the next morning, everything is set up for a fast start.

Organize.  Organize everything you can, so you can reference it as quickly as possible.  Clients and companies become infuriated at redundancies, and if you are unorganized, this will happen.

Schedule.  Write up a schedule for the things you should be doing while looking for a job, and stick to it as if it were your job.  This doesn’t mean you should schedule work for 12 hours each day until you find a job, in fact, that would be a terrible idea.  Your work output would drop tremendously in quality, and you can’t afford to lose quality.  Schedule a day that has time for work, time for errands and time to relax.  It’s hard to justify, especially when looking for a job, but relaxing can be as important to your job search as working.  Again, you want to put out quality resumes, relaxing will assist you.

Socialize.  Another brain reset.  Talk to others about anything except work or the pursuit of it.  To do your best work, your brain needs to be as fresh as possible.  Working all the time, chasing the job every waking moment will do more harm than good.  Take time for yourself to unwind. 

We all understand the need for sleep, equally important is the need for your brain to relax several times a day, even if for only a few moments.

How to Utilize LinkedIn to Get Your Resume Into the Right Hands
Joel Garfinkle

In today’s increasingly competitive job market, you need to use all of the resources at your disposal. This includes networking through popular websites like LinkedIn. Your LinkedIn contacts are great, but oftentimes the people they know are even better!  This is where the true power of networking for a job really comes into play! Following are four steps on how to utilize LinkedIn to get your resume into the right hands.

1.      Have a complete LinkedIn profile. Include all of the information you would normally include on a resume, including previous positions, your education, and your unique skills. By having this information available, employers can actually find you! Much like optimizing a web page for a search engine, optimize your LinkedIn profile to catch the eye of a potential employer. That way when your contact hears about an open position at his company, and he sees you have the right experience, he can recommend you.

2.      Make sure you have connected with all of your contacts. Import your address book and be sure to add all of the connections to people you know and trust. Although it may be tempting to add every single person you can as a connection, it’s more important to have solid connections that you can actually communicate with and discuss potential positions, or ask to serve as a reference to one of their contacts that has a position you’re interested in.

3.      Find the right people on LinkedIn. If there’s a company you’d like to work for, or that you know uses employees with your particular skill set, search for them on LinkedIn. Many organizations have a company directory on  LinkedIn. This can help you determine who you should send a resume to, at the organization, even when they don’t have an advertised open position. You can also see if any of your connections are connected to the organization, so they can personally hand off your resume to the right person.

4.      Browse a general industry for a new job opportunity. If you don’t have a specific company in mind, try looking for a list of companies within a specific industry. Browse the companies on LinkedIn, see their job postings, and how many people in your network are connected to that company. From there, use the company directory to help determine who you should send your resume to, and if you have connections in your network associated with the company, see if they will give you a personal introduction.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by
Joel Garfinkle

I have a colleague who just flat out smells. What can I do without embarrassing him or getting myself into trouble?

Having a colleague who smells can be an uncomfortable situation. Addressing the issue is one that requires the utmost tact. For this reason, it is best left to their superior.

Although you may be tempted to talk about the situation with your other coworkers, do not. No one wants to smell bad and discussing it with others will only make the situation more awkward for your colleague. However, if it really is that offensive, you have every right to bring it to the attention of their supervisor.

Schedule a private meeting with the supervisor and let them know that although you’re embarrassed to bring the situation to their attention, it is negatively affecting the work environment. The supervisor can then handle the problem tactfully and in accordance with HR policy, while keeping your involvement anonymous. In this way, your working relationship with your colleague is not damaged.

One of the people I work with does as close to nothing as possible. This creates a greater burden on me and some fellow coworkers. What should I do?

The old saying, “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.” is true. As you’ve already discovered, a team mate that doesn’t pull their weight can lead to a greater burden and reduced morale for the other team members. It can also negatively impact your projects and your team’s reputation.

Clearly assigning tasks and deadlines to each team member can give your coworker the impetus to do their share of the work. However, if your coworker still does not do their fair share of work, you have two choices. First, you can address the situation with your coworker directly and in private. Give specific examples, such as the tasks that were assigned and not completed. Explain that the team needs their help and full support.

If this does not work, or you feel uncomfortable addressing the issue directly, bring the issue to a supervisor. Again, give specific examples of tasks that are not being completed and the negative effect they are having on the team. Do not make it personal, but instead focus solely on the facts, with full hopes that the situation can be resolved.

During Joel’s tenure as an outplacement consultant, he has written many books from topics ranging from Getting Ahead to Find a Job in 14 Days. You can also order Joel’s book Land Your Dream Job which guides you through a proven, seven-step action-oriented process that helps you to define and land work that matches your natural gifts and passions.
