Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
03.13.12

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, March 13, 2012, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

Wrestling

I was a high school wrestler for four years, two on Varsity.  My freshmen year, the only match I won was a forfeit.  My sophomore year I actually beat three opponents, all of them were freshmen, but a win is a win.

I worked hard at being a wrestler, a lot of work that took two years to pay off.

My Junior and Senior years I was a good but not great wrestler.  It took time and an incredible amount of effort to get to that level.  But I loved every minute of it because with every run, with every pull-up, with every practice, I got just a little bit better.

My daily motto was, “What did I do today, that my opponent did not?”

An extra run after practice, working with stronger and heavier wrestlers so I could learn from them and giving every ounce of effort during each and every practice and match.

Out of a job?  Become a wrestler.  Do whatever it takes to get better, go the extra mile.  Review and rewrite everything.  Practice your elevator speech and interviews, let no question startle or stump you.  Study your industry, the big players, the up and comers.  Know more about the company you are applying at then your interviewer.  Create a strategy and a schedule, and everyday, do something just a little bit better than you did the day before. 

So one night, when you ask yourself what you did today that the opponent did not, the answer will be, “I got the job.”

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
SUITS: 7 Smart Ways to De-Clutter Your Career
by Jessica Sitomer

Harvey Spector is one of NY’s best lawyers for a reason, he is meticulous. Even when making the risky hire of Mike Ross, he did his research and covered every detail to keep their secret. Because of his mind for such detail each case has the potential to be a big winner. There is no room for extraneous actions. There is no need to deviate from his plan.   

How precise is your action when you’re pursuing a job? Is it an exact science of proven strategies? Or do you find yourself doing the same things over and over and not getting the results you want?

If it’s the later, it’s time to do some de-cluttering. Your career is a business. Businesses fail for many reasons. In Harvey’s case, the only way to lose is if someone deviates from the plan and things get messy. Businesses don’t thrive in a mess. So if your career is feeling messy or disheveled, here are 7 ways to de-clutter your career:

1.  Update your contact list. Time to go through your contacts with the eye of a business owner. Who are your valuable contacts? By valuable I mean the people who care about and contribute to your success? I give people a goal of 200 contacts because of my successful clients’ proven track number with that number. However, if you’re just keeping contacts on your list for the “number” it’s not an accurate or valuable list. So re-do your contact list so you can have a clear visual of how many people you know who can hire you directly, can connect you with people, or are valuable to you in the way of networking partners or career support. Then evaluate what’s missing so that you can start building relationships that will move you forward.

2.  Evaluate what makes you money and grows your contacts. Make a list of everything YES EVERYTHING you do to get jobs that make you money and to grow your contacts. Once you make the list eliminate the ineffective work. This will most likely be the stuff you do that is in your comfort zone that doesn’t reap the rewards, but makes you feel like you’re doing “something.” You may rationalize it by saying that doing something is better than doing nothing, but if it’s ineffective you may as well use that time for self-care. My reasoning is that I’ve seen too many people do ineffective work to feel good about doing “something” only to feel horrible when they get no results. You’d be better off doing something fun or invigorating for your mind, body, and soul.

3.  Chunk your time. In the same way that you schedule out a chunk of time in your calendar for a job, you can chunk out time for focused work. Start with the hardest tasks, the ones you don’t like to do. If you procrastinate the hard tasks, you get far less done than if you get them over with.

4.  Design a networking plan. Knowing that networking is so important for your career, take the guess work out by researching the most effective places for you to network and then schedule the events in your calendar. Going to networking events for the sake of going is “clutter.” Know why you’re going, who you want to meet, how many people you want to meet, and what you have to do to have a successful event.

5.  Change your workspace. If your work space is not an inspiring place, de-clutter it and make it a place you love to work. The other alternative is finding a new space; a posh hotel with wireless access, a coffee shop, or a friend’s house who has a great view.

6.  Create a follow up calendar. Follow-up is one of the most important ways to maintain relationships. Again, within your chunked batches of focused work time, create a schedule for follow up. Choose a number of people to follow up with per day or per week, but don’t let it go farther than that or it could get messy.

7.  Batch your social media marketing. By now you know how important your social media network is. People get hired based on how many “Friends” and “Followers” they have. A big reason why people get frustrated by social media is because they see it as a “time sucker” which it can be. So batch your posts by using free services such as HootSuite.com  

Consider this your winter cleaning. De-cluttering will not only make your job pursuit a smoother process, it will also make you feel good.

And Action!

1. Start with one of the 7 steps.   

2. Add in a step or two each week until you’ve completely de-cluttered.

3. Do something to celebrate the hard work you’ve done!

Harvey is far more successful than the average lawyer. Do you want to be like Harvey? Or do you want to be average? The less clutter and the better your plan, the better your chances of being successful!

Questions from our Readers
Answered by Jessica Sitomer

Does it help to send in more than one resume for a particular job at a company?

Here’s what helps, to have a referral to that company when submitting your resume. With social media sites like LinkedIn, it’s easier than ever to find people who work at your target companies.

Start creating relationships with people who work there so that when a job shows up that you’re applying for you can ask to use the person’s name as an introduction AKA referral when applying. When someone at the company is reading through the same old cover letters (basically form letters) yours will stand out when you have the name of a company employee referring you.

Or if it’s a last minute opportunity and you haven’t formed any relationships at the company, reach out to all of your contacts to ask if anyone knows anyone at the company, in order to make an introduction. Note: a referral is not a recommendation. The person at the company is not recommending you for the job because they don’t know you well enough for you to ask for that (unless you’ve brought the relationship to that point).

All they are doing is allowing you to use their name as an “in” so that your cover letter/resume stands out.

If I set up a personal website, what other information should it contain that a resume and cover letter would not?

A personal website is for branding yourself and creating relationships with your visitors. It should have an introduction page, a download page where potential employers can download resumes or stream reels, and a must have these days is a blog.

The subject matter would reflect what you do, how you do it, and with whom, in more detail than a letter or resume. You would also include a personal angle to the blog that reflects your characteristics that would be attractive to potential employers.

They want to know you have life experience that makes you interesting and good to work with. Keep in mind that while some entries may tie in your personal life, they are specifically chosen to reflect your personal brand.
