Cynopsis: Classified Advantage

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, June 5, 2012, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

A Retrospect…

In April 10th’s edition, we had an HR professional describe his job and the candidates he sees on a daily basis.  If what he says holds true for most of the candidates out there, what are we to infer from this information? 
That most people are stupid?  No. 
That many are lazy and really don’t want a job?  No. 
That they are so set in their ways that they will not conform to the newer methods of personal marketing?  Maybe at first, but when you are unemployed for a certain amount of time, most people are willing to embrace new ideas. 
Perhaps they have given up.  Unfortunately, that might be true for some, but certainly not the majority. 
I think they are mad.  They are mad that they can walk into a job they are more than qualified for and never hear back from the company.  This is unprecedented for most workers.  Qualifications were once all you needed to get a good job.  But now, you need more. 
So listen to the gentleman who wrote last week’s column. 
You’re not writing thank you notes?
You’re not ready for questions that put you in an uncomfortable position? 
You haven’t researched the company or the industry?
You’re not asking about the hiring process? 
You’re are unenthused during your interview? 
You don’t know how to sell yourself with enthusiasm? 
You haven’t looked into typical questions asked during an interview?
Your resumes aren’t in an easy to read format with three bullet points near the top that clearly demonstrates why you are THE PERSON for the job?
You have misspelled words on your resume or cover letter?
You don’t have a list of questions that will demonstrate your knowledge of the company and the industry?
Stop, before emailing me in anger, I know a lot of you are doing exactly what you are supposed to be doing and still are unemployed.  But understand this, you are way ahead of a lot of other candidates out there, so hold on, your time is coming.
When I wrote a column about the 3 bullet point resume, I received over 75 resumes asking for my opinion.  Less than ten had 3 bullet points, all the rest had more, one had 27.
I know it’s bad out there, and I don’t want to sound cruel, but if you don’t heed the advice from the Cynopsis writers, industry leaders and people who work in HR, then you’re not doing your job.  And if you’re not doing your job, why should anyone hire you to do theirs?

SCANDAL Politics of Perspective
by Jessica Sitomer

Nothing like a good Shonda Rhimes show to make greed and corruption look sexy. It also makes it look near impossible to address necessary reform and change. With government cover-ups going as high as the president, it looks pretty grim!

But even someone as tough as Olivia Pope, a professional ‘fixer’ can change her perspective when she knows something is ethically wrong. But why should something bad have to happen to get an honest perspective on things?

Here are some of the perspectives that have been shared with me lately:
The economy is so bad, the entertainment industry may never recover and I may never work again.

I watch the news everyday and I don’t think we’ll see things get better for at least another decade!

What is the point of trying to change things? We have no power in this country.  

The irony of that last statement is that’s exactly how I feel after I watch Scandal. Is art imitating life? Is “Olivia Pope” out there? And do we have a chance to make a change with people like her keeping things fixed’?  Maybe certain perspectives will always be “in the air.” I don’t know. What I do know is that we have the power to control what perspectives we choose to focus on. I also know that where we focus has a great deal to do with our success, or lack of.

Here are some questions to ask yourself regarding your perspective:

  • What are the general statements you make about your career possibilities, the state of the world, and the people in your life?
  • Are these statements empowering or concerning?
  • If they are empowering, you’re in great shape! Keep it up. If they are concerning, how is it helping you to stay focused on your concerning statements? Are they pushing you to act in a positive way? Or are they keeping you stuck, frustrated, and fearful?

To change your perspective can be a tiny or a great big shift. It can be as simple as sitting in a different seat at your dinner table or as challenging as believing you deserve success even when others are struggling around you.

Before you focus on changing your perspective, take an accurate inventory about how you’re feeling right now:

Are you scared about your future? Are you frustrated with your career? Do you feel let down by work associates? Do you struggle with not living up to the expectations you had for yourself? Is your money situation causing you stress? Do you feel alone or unsupported by those around you? Do you ever feel helpless or just want to give up, but don’t know what else you’d do? Do you ever feel like nothing in your life is as it should be? 

You may need to take a few deep breaths after that. I sure do! It’s no fun to focus on those questions. How about these:
Who is the one person (or animal) in your life you can always count on to make you smile? What have you done or can you start doing to feel proactive about a stable future? What do you love about your job that keeps you pursuing it? What fuels your passion outside of work?

Now for the “what ifs”:

What if the economy turns around in the next two years and work becomes abundant? What if you’re getting so many job offers, you’re turning work away? What if you paid off all of your debt and had enough left over to feel secure for the rest of your life? What if you met great people who always make you feel welcome and cared about? What if everything in your life fell into place; you are healthy, fulfilled at work, fulfilled in your personal life, making an abundance of money, giving back, having fun, feeling loved?

The challenging part of changing your perspective is recognizing that the “what ifs” are just as made up as your “worries.” In fact, in most instances, worries never come to be, and things tend to work out for the best.

Now the decision is yours to make: Do you want to worry about your future? Or do you want to focus on the “what ifs” and in doing so, motivating yourself to make those “what ifs” turn into actuality? 

And Action!

1. For every concern you have, create a “what if” that you prefer for your future.   

2. For every “what if” you create, design a strategy plan for working toward seeing it through to fruition.

Yes, Olivia Pope doesn’t leave anything up to chance, she can’t afford a ‘what if’ that she doesn’t control. But you’re not a professional fixer. You can pursue your “what if” perspective with integrity and passion.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by
Jessica Sitomer

Do salary advances still exists and if so, what is the best way to approach the subject?

There are no laws requiring salary advances, so every company is going to have it’s own policy. You’ll have to inquire at your company. What is the best way to approach the subject? Professionally. Think about what their objections may be and provide solutions.

What is the best way to refuse an assignment that is outside of my job description without hurting my career?

Say that you are booked (this doesn’t have to be a lie, book yourself with “stuff”) and recommend great people to make it easy for them to fill the position. Your contacts will appreciate you throwing their name in the hat and it will be good karma for your career.
