Cyn opsis: Classified Advantage

11.17.09

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, November 17, 2009, and this is your weekly issue of Cyn opsis: Classified Advantage!  This edition includes the top job listings in the Television, Media and Ad Agency markets, professional development advice from national experts, your Q & A’s with our experts, and a summary of executive moves among top companies.

The following is a MOCK communication demonstrating a shift many companies have recently taken.

FROM: The CEO
TO: Manager of HR
SUBJECT: New hiring procedures

I don’t have to tell you how important our new hires will be to our company, especially now. With this in mind, here are a few suggestions.

I am not as enthused with youth as I once was. It’s always a gamble hiring someone who’s greatest attribute is that they are young. I understand the argument for it; I’m just not sure it holds water.

For example, I thought younger people stayed longer with a company, but I was wrong. Workers between the ages of 45 and 54 stay longer than those who are younger than 34. And studies show that workers with children still at home miss much more work than their older counterparts. Of course, the big concern is that you have to pay an older worker more money. On the surface this is true, but in real costs, the younger worker is actually more expensive. This is due to the higher turnover in younger employees which costs us in recruiting, hiring and training expenses.

But even all this isn’t the main reason I am rethinking our hiring practices. In this economy, most companies’ futures are fragile. Ours is no exception. With this in mind, I want you to search the resumes for tangible achievements, people who are proven commodities and not some young unknown worker who may or may not work out. I want seasoned veterans who can hit the ground running, who have established contacts within our industry, people who know what they are doing.

Now obviously such a person must be current with our technology, the software we use and must have a desire for continued education. But I want you to concentrate on resumes with results, accomplishments, achievements, transferable competencies and a good deal of experience.

This is not to say that if you come across talented prospects who happen to be young, that you should ignore their candidacy, just the opposite.  A young hotshot in the mix can keep everyone on their toes, push people to become more creative, bring us up to speed with social media and broaden the corporate acceptance of new ideas and technologies.

Our company’s future depends on hiring solid, seasoned individuals who will make this company stronger. We need to be careful, and I believe our most prudent tact to is value experience and track record above all.

Next week: Creating a Home Office

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~

Seven pointers to an effective elevator speech and cover letter
By Mike Pollock

 
As you go about your job search is critically important that you understand and internalize the value that you provide to an employee or client.

You must understand deep inside yourself what makes you so special at the job you are pursuing. You must have a good sense from your connections and research what a potential employer is looking for. You should know, or be able to intuit, what kind of problems they are likely to have and what problems they are looking to have someone  you hopefully  take care of for them.

You should have moved way past such generic, price-of-entry claims as “on time, on budget” or “I manage teams” or other boilerplate descriptions of what a job entails. These are merely support points, they do not differentiate you in any way. (Except perhaps from the people who write ” I am a sloppy worker, my team hates me and my projects are always late.)

You should look into your own career triumphs, large and small and pick three or four that you can describe briefly and vividly. These must be stories that no-one else could tell, that encapsulate the value and passion that you and you alone provide.

Once you have all this deep inside you, you will be able to pull out all the appropriate bits when the occasion arises. You will use those bits in your “elevator speeches” to people you meet. You will use them in your cover letter and in the wonderful opening of your resume document. And of course you will use them in your LinkedIn and other social media profiles.

Here is a list of seven key points to keep in mind as you develop this pitch:

1.      You are pitching that you want to solve the hirer’ s problem
2.      Be very, very clear on what specific value you offer them that is different from anyone else
3.      Be very, very passionate about doing it
4.      Tell a brief anecdote about a career triumph that proves you have the qualities demanded
5.      You are not asking for them to give you a job  you are offering them a uniquely perfect solution to their problem
6.      You need to understand their needs and challenges  imagine yourself in their place.
7.      You need to present yourself as the solution they are looking for  even if they weren’t looking

~ ASK THE EXPERTS ~
Questions from our Readers
Answered by Michael Pollock

I treat all people with respect, but is there anything to be gained by treating the interviewer’s secretary especially well? Will he/she have any influence?    
        
If you always treat people with respect, then simply continue to do so when you meet the secretary.     

Some secretaries may indeed have some influence with the interviewer, but normal politeness should be fine. Don’t be condescending, don’t bring him flowers, just treat him like an intelligent human being who is doing a good and valuable job.

It’s true that a secretary who likes you can help you over any rough scheduling issues and show you where the coffee pot is  but they see many interviewees so they’ll know when they are being “worked.”

The interviewer is going to be evaluating your experience and work skills and knows best what will fit into the team, so as long as the secretary is not going to say of you, “that person was a real jerk,” then you should be okay.

Other than a poor return, are there any drawbacks to sending out mass resumes to all appropriate companies? I have tried all the things people have suggested, worked a couple hours a day on networking, on Facebook and LinkedIn, and still nothing. So I thought I would try a mass mailing but wanted to check with you first.

If it will make you feel better, then go ahead. But bear in mind how you feel when you get a communication that is clearly written “to whom it may concern.” Your suggestion that there will be a poor return to this is probably more optimistic than mine.

Here is how I might suggest you spend your effort instead. If you have been networking, and to no effect, then perhaps you are not presenting your true and unique value to the appropriate people who will jump at the chance to have you on their team.       Perhaps the way you are framing your skills is not quite right. Perhaps it is not clear and succinct enough. Perhaps your target companies or executive selections are not fine-tuned enough.

I would much rather suggest you spend time working on these aspects than doing a mass mailing.
