Cynopsis: Classified

Advantage

11.29.11

Good morning it’s Tuesday, November 29th, 2011, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

The Death of a Document?

Rejoice one and all. The bane of our existence, at least for job seekers, is coming to an end.  Yes folks, I’m here to tell you that the cover letter is dead.  Or at least on life support.

This document that has perplexed so many and has been read by so few is finally disappearing from the job seeking process.

In its place is a note.  Sounds much less intimidating doesn’t it?  A note or even a short email with your resume attached, stating the job you’re applying for, why you are the one who should be hired, and highlight one or two of your major accomplishments as proof of your worth. End the note with a sincerely and all contact information.

To some, this might sound just like a cover letter, but it’s not.  It’s shorter, less formal and considerably less daunting.

What does remain is addressing your introductory note by name; not a Dear Sir or Madam.

Caution, not everybody is on board with this yet.  So call and ask if a traditional cover letter is requested or if an introductory note will suffice.

Not only is this easier on you, but most of the people reading these documents will love you for it.

Next Issue: To the People who read Cover Letters.

We are always on the look out for more Experts to advise our readers – if you’re a headhunter, job coach, career advisor, etc., and may be interested in contributing to this edition from time to time, please contact me at [email protected] .

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
See Yourself As Others See You
by Michael Pollock

What you think really doesn’t matter when you’re pitching yourself for a job.  What matters is what the recipient of the pitch thinks: the hirer.  What you need to be doing is intuiting what they are looking for and what they are worrying about, so that when they meet you they feel better, they feel that their problems will be taken care of.

So what should they feel when they look at you? Think about it, she is just a person with a job to do and problems to solve, whether she’s in HR or the manager you’d be working for; though in each case their problems will be slightly different. 

Do this exercise before you write to them or go into the interview:  ask yourself “what do they hope they will see in me?  What problem or worry do they have that I can help them with?”

Put yourself in their shoes.  Forget for a moment about your qualifications and think about her needs.  Your predictions might include: I can trust her, I want someone who has worked on projects like mine, I want someone who understands the category, I want someone who will fit in with the team, I want someone who has proven results.  This kind of thing. 

So which of these are the likely triggers for your particular hirer?  Which can you support best?  Ask yourself these questions and then look at your resume and cover letter and decide whether they are framed to give the right impression.

To do this you need to have a good sense of what you have to offer.  You need to understand which of your experiences and skills are relevant to their needs  which ones are important. 

There is often a difference between important and interesting.  Focus on the “important”  and then color it with a little “interesting.”  But don’t put so much interesting in that your reader loses sight of the important parts  she is not going to give it that much time before she moves on.  And don’t make them work to discover the important parts. 

Put them up front  tell them what you bring them and then prove it in your chronology or the cases you cite.  Don’t make them search for it.  Why should they?  

Surely there is no job in the creative business where effective, powerful presentation of ideas is not important.   So show them with your own pitch for yourself that you have that mastered.

So what will they see when they see your resume  or meet you at interview?  Will they see a list of qualifications and clients and dates and advancements?  Or will they see the answer to their problem?  Which would you prefer they see?

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

What should I be looking for when asking people for references? And should I ask them to sit down with me beforehand to discuss the contents of the reference?

Look for people who will say good things about you.  Okay, you laugh, but this is not always done.  Just because they worked with you doesn’t mean they like what you do; so think carefully before you ask. 

Look for people with respectable titles and responsibilities; people you’ve worked for rather than your peers.

Know what you want your hirer to hear about you and look for those specifics in the references: general nice-guy stuff is usually not that helpful, you want them to emphasize your successes. 

Mostly the people who will give you the time for a sit-down are not the ones who will give the most valuable references. 

So if there are particular areas you feel that a referee could support you on  when you ask them, suggest that they might consider touching on those things. 

Is sending in a resume and cover letter really just a hit and miss situation, even when everything is done properly?

For sure there is always a degree of hit and miss.  Will it be opened?  Will it be opened by someone who matters?  Will it be read by someone who understands?  Will it be printed out and put on a pile and buried?  Will it be passed on and mislaid?  Will it be scanned for some peculiar combo of keywords that you couldn’t predict?  Had they actually already picked a winner  but had to advertise to convince themselves?  And so on.

So even with the perfect submission there is a lot that can happen that might not be good.  Hit or miss? I would say there is some of that. 

But you’ve got to be in it to win it  so don’t forget the personal introductions and using your network to spread the resume.   These distribution techniques are a critically important part of “doing it properly.”
