Cynopsis: Classified

 

Advantage

03/01/11

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, March 1, 2011, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage! 

The Informational Interview

What is it?

An Information Interview is where a job seeker asks for career and industry advice from a known person within a particular field.  The interview is used for several reasons:  to learn about the industry, learn about a company, learn about a job, seek advice on how to better prepare yourself for the short and long term for the job and to network.

Informational interviews can be difficult to arrange because the job seeker is the one who asks for the interview.   Some think that most executives have no interest in spending their time with someone they don’t know, answering a slew of questions.  But if asked with proper etiquette and respect, you’d be surprised at how many are actually willing to help, either by phone or by meeting for coffee or a drink.

Before contacting anyone about an informational interview, you have to do some homework.  Research the individual, the company, and the industry.

Always remember the executive is doing you a favor so try to arrange a time and place that is convenient for them and set an amount of time such as 20-30 minutes. 

Dress as if you were on an interview, prepare your questions but don’t get anxious if you are running out of time. 

If you are meeting for coffee or a drink, always pay the tab and offer to end the meeting at the agreed time, if they want to continue, great, but by you mentioning the time, you give the executive a graceful way to exit, something that everyone is always grateful for.

After the meeting is over, ask if you can keep in touch in case you need further advice and give them your business card with all contact info on it.

Make sure you write them a thank you note, and since speed is not a factor, a handwritten note might be more appreciated.

It’s okay to take notes, but never, ever ask for a job or job leads.  You will put the executive in an awkward position plus they will feel ambushed.

Start the interview with thanking them for their time.

Be a good listener and ask good questions.

If you ask someone for an informational interview and they say no, don’t ask again.

The informational interview can be a tremendous tool in gained knowledge and networking, as long as you keep your personal need for a job out of the conversation.  If you do ambush them, the executive will most likely shut it down and you will lose, what could have been, an exceptionally useful experience.

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
Conducting a Job Search? Plan to be prepared before you start
by Joel Garfinkle

Whether you are unemployed or employed and looking for a job, you need to be prepared before the job search even begins. When you have a plan, your strategy, daily game plan and overall focus help you find the right job more quickly. Don’t be like most people who start a job search by immediately applying for jobs, sending out resumes and telling people the 4-5 jobs they want without any thought process before they jump in.

Prepare for a long job search On average candidates take about six to nine months to find a job. Even though you might have excellent experience, a solid track record and well-known companies you’ve worked for, the job search period will be longer than you expect. It’s vital that you are prepared for this extended amount of time. Even the most qualified can take up to a year.

Be financially prepared Make sure you have enough finances to cover the length of your job search. Save as much money as you can, cut expenses and create and stick to a budget.

Confront fear and self-doubt Even before you start your job search, it’s common for many to feel fear and self-doubt. Fears around not being able to find a job, it taking too long, doubting your confidence, becoming needy to find a job and questioning your overall worthiness.

Dedicate plenty of time to the job search. The more time you spend daily, the less time the job search will take. However, most people resist making the required commitment. The minimum amount of time to commit should be 20-25 hours a week and, if you aren’t working, the maximum amount should be 40 hours a week. If you are working, expect to spend 4-6 hours a week and the maximum will be 20-25 hours a week.

Create a daily schedule Schedule and make time for the most important things related to your job search. Block out chucks of time to avoid distractions. For example, you might designate 9-11:30am on Mon, Wed and Fri for you to work on the most important things that need to get done related to your job search.

Get organized Create a document (e.g. excel spreadsheet)to track the names, numbers, emails and vital information about your contacts as you move forward in your job search. This organized document will be vital as you follow-up with people you contacted in the past and need to recall their key information.

Evaluate job location Ask yourself questions about the location of your next job. Are you willing to live in other locations? If so, where do you want to live?

Once you have accomplished all of the above, you are now ready to target the exact role, industry and job you most want. This involves creating your resume, networking, interviewing and salary negotiation.

Questions from our Readers
by
Joel Garfinkle

My Dad always said if you want to get into business, learn to play golf. Is that still true, or is there some other social/athletic events I should get involved in to better my chances to be successful in business?

Golf is no longer the gold standard for networking. Get involved in areas of your interest (sports, yoga, martial arts) where you can interact with others who have a day job and do their hobby on the side.

If you want to be successful in business, I suggest you join these networking groups:

  • American Chamber of Commerce (local chapters)
  • BNI –
  • www.bni.com – business networking organization that shares referrals

  • Business associations related to your business industry

Online social networking is also another option:

  • Facebook.com
  • Linkedin.com
  • Twitter.com
  • Biznik.com
  • Efactor.com
  • Networkingforprofessionals.com
  • Partnerup.com

I have been unemployed for 13 months. I go to a lot of interviews, but never get the job. My friends say I will have a better chance if I shave my beard. I don’t think that is a concern because my beard is close cropped and well taken care of. Who is right?

Without seeing you in-person, I will assume the beard is fine. You do want to make sure you look extremely professional and well-groomed for the interview. Let’s assume you do. The fundamental reason most people get interviews – but not land the job – is their inability to convince the employer their are the right candidate.

To do this, you need to understand what the employer is looking for. Ask him or her this question at the beginning of the interview, “What are the three most important things you want in hiring the person for this position?”

Once you learn this information, spend the rest of the interview demonstrating how you’ve already done specifically what the employer is looking for.

See this link for more information on how to create stories to show how you’ve already done the work. http://www.employmentdigest.net/2007/08/when-an-interviewer-says-tell-me-about-a-time-when-you/ .
