Cynopsis: Classified

Advantage

06/28/11

Good morning – it’s Wednesday, June 28, 2011, and this is your weekly issue of Cyn opsis: Classified Advantage! 

Two Camps of LinkedIn

There are two polarizing camps within the business world surrounding the issue of who you should accept within your LinkedIn network. 

One camp believes any and everyone.  Anything else smacks of elitism.  You’ll accept a SVP because they are a SVP, but never anyone lower on the ladder than you are, unless you think that they may become an asset to you in the future.  Selfish.

The other camp believes that LinkedIn is not a social network, it is strictly business meant for the purpose of helping your career; and you shouldn’t do anything that can jeopardize that goal.  Accepting people you don’t know or might not be an asset to you in the future, is foolish. 

Picture this, an intern, within your network, asks a person in Senior Management of another company, also within your network, for a job.  Not only is this inappropriate, but it reflects on you, badly.  Why risk it?  Accept anyone you want on Facebook or some other social media, but your business reputation is fragile, to fragile to accept people into your network that you don’t know.

Some people may be worth the risk, but certainly anyone just starting out, or outside your industry, or several levels beneath your job, are not.

I understand both sides of this question.  And I think the people who are very careful with LinkedIn invitations, make excellent points.  That being said, I accept all.  If someone wants to judge me by my network, I’m fine with that.  If someone looks down on me because I have people just starting out within my network, let them. 

To me, LinkedIn is a great tool that works both ways.  Yes I would love to have Steve Jobs within my network, he has yet to accept my invitation but I’m still hopeful.  But for LinkedIn to work, I believe we have to accept those who might need us too; not just those who may benefit from. 

I have a nice network, made up of writers, marketers, HR personnel, Senior Management, interns and even some CEO’s.  And I welcome anyone who is reading this article, to join my network.  My email address is listed throughout this publication, [email protected], please feel free to send an invitation.

I believe that people in the business world are smart.  I believe that if someone in my network asks for something inappropriate to another within my network, that will reflect on them, not me.  I also believe that is someone wants to judge me by my network, and sees people from intern to CEO, they’ll notice that I want help, but also, that I’m willing to be of assistance. 

What better reputation can someone have?

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
Be Proactive in Developing Your Career
by Michael Pollock

Don’t wait for new challenges promotions and adventures to come to you  go out and seek them.  Put yourself out there. Make your own luck.

Here are some ideas about being proactive that you can twist and spin for your own situation.  Make them manageable for you, because if you try to bite off too much at once  you might never get started.

  • Go to an industry event or meetup.  People who go to these want to meet new folk, so it’s easy to get networking. Some will work for you, some won’t: ask about other events and go to them too.
  • Start a creative project of your own.  Blog or DJ or paint or make a film or write a screenplay or a business plan.  Tell people about it so that they, and you, can see that you have the goods.
  • Look for companies you’d like to work at, even if they’ve no openings right now.  Network your way to someone on the inside.  You’ll be amazed at what you can learn and whom you will meet.
  • Look at requirements in interesting job postings and see if there are any classes you should be taking to improve your skill-set.
  • Get in touch with people you haven’t talked to in a while: ex-clients, former colleagues.  Tell them what you are up to (see #2).  Get together to talk about their challenges and where the business is headed. 
  • Remember those companies that said they would keep your resume on file in case anything else came up? Call them and tell them what you are doing and why they need you.
  • Be a connector.  Actively bring people together who can help each other.   Make sure you ask them to post you on progress. Eventually, when you least expect it, you’ll be surprised at what these connections will give back.
  • Be a thought leader in your field and share your wisdom on the business/social sites.   Dig up information that is outside the box. What are people in your field doing in France, in Indonesia, in China?
  • Volunteer. I have heard of excellent business connections, and friends, being made on Habitat for Humanity construction projects.

Okay that is a few things to get you thinking. See what other ideas you can come up with.  Challenge yourself to do one thing a week, or a day, and see what happens.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by Michael Pollock

I am going to a job that requires suits rather than the business casual I wore at my previous job. My budget is about $1,500.00. How do I spend it? Cheaper suits but nicer shoes, ties and shirts, or go for the nicer suits and squeeze on everything else?

Well! I clearly have not been spending enough money on my wardrobe because $1500 seems like a lot to me.  I suggest you focus your resources on the suit  that is harder to get right than a shirt and tie  and do allow for some alterations to get the fit right. You can get a designer shirt and tie at a consignment store or outlet mall that will look excellent and use up less than $100.   That leaves you a pretty reasonable amount for the suit and that is where the money should go.  And absolutely, don’t forget the shoes: a ratty pair of shoes will spoil everything. Good luck and happy shopping.

On a recent interview, I was asked about my old boss. The problem is, he was a real jerk. Promoted because he was a buddy of a higher up, didn’t know what he was doing, he had problems with anyone who wasn’t a white male, he would get drunk at lunch and return to the office angry and he is the reason I left my last job. What do I say when they ask about him and why I left my previous position? Do I lie?

If you are specifically asked about him you should find something vaguely positive to say and then move on to something wonderful that you did while you were in his group. And please, under no circumstances mention anyone’s ethnicity.  Your interviewer doesn’t really want to know about your boss, it’s just a way of finding out about you – so be aware of that.  As to why you left – go with something of the order of: I wanted to get more opportunity to do what I do well, or to expand my talents or to work on something that I felt more strongly about.  Try and find something to say that is not so much about the job you left, but says more about your own drive and skills and ambition: where you are headed.  Don’t forget  this is about you and your next job.  And they don’t want to hire someone who will complain and badmouth – so stay positive and stick to talking about the value you will bring to them.
