Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
11.30.10

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, November 30, 2010, 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. 

Gift Buying Guide for the Holidays

Check the company’s policy on gift giving and abide by it.

Ask a mentor or a co-workers about the tradition of gift giving in the office.  If others don’t exchange gifts, you shouldn’t either.

Do not feel compelled to buy anyone a gift, unless it is a group activity, like a Secret Santa.

If you don’t have a lot of money to spend, buy gifts for the people who help you the most, first.  If you have an assistant, they are the first people on the list.

Gifts to people you work with should rarely exceed $20 unless you’re the boss.

Never give a gag gift to co-worker or boss, the upside is minimal and the downside is too great to make it worth the gamble.  If you have a close enough relationship with a co-worker to give a gag gift, do so outside the office. 

Never give a gift that you wouldn’t want everyone to see, because most likely, they will.

Stay away from personal gifts, keep them either professional, or having to do with a well known interest of the recipient.

When buying for the opposite sex, you should avoid anything that might be perceived as romantic.

Don’t give cash unless it’s a bonus.

Never, ever give an IOU gift or a promise gift.

Respect the person’s religious and personal values when giving a gift.  It’s best to avoid any kind of religious gift, but if you are unsure of the recipient’s religion, make the gift/card non-secular.  Know your recipient well enough that you don’t end up giving sausage to a vegetarian, or wine to a recovering alcoholic.  Oops.

The Boss

Buying your Boss a gift is a slippery slope.  There are rules.  Some will tell you the rule of thumb is never buy someone a gift who is above you on the ladder.  So again, check your company policy on gift giving or consult with your peers as to what is normally acceptable.  And in any case …

Don’t initiate the gift giving process.  A card is fine, but unless it is the cultural norm of the office, don’t buy your Boss a gift unless he has given you one in the past.

Gifts to your Boss should be professional and inexpensive.  Any gift over $20 could be seen as an attempt to curry favor, which could destroy your reputation amongst your co-workers.

Group gifts to the Boss are usually preferable to personal gifts, unless personal gifts have been exchanged in the past.

A simple and sincere gift is always better than an expensive, thoughtless gift.

If you are concerned that others may think you are trying to suck up to the Boss by buying them gifts, you’re right, some will.  If you are giving a personal gift to your Boss, do so discreetly.

Gifts to a Boss or supervisor you rarely see or work with, will not sit well with others or the recipient.  The last thing you want to do is make a supervisor or your Boss feel awkward with an unwarranted gift.

An overly expensive gift is just as awkward as an unwarranted gift.  Don’t do it.

Not giving a gift at all is better than an inappropriate gift.

And the biggest rule of giving gifts, not only to your Boss or co-workers, but to anyone:  if you give a gift with expectations of something in return, the gift was given for the wrong reason.

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
Resume Feedback
by Michael Pollock

I recently received a resume from an apparently extremely capable leader in the digital marketing field. He is an innovator who has launched and built digital departments in several major ad agencies.

But I had to work my way through his chronology to figure this out. His brief summary was utterly generic.  It could have been written by any one of a thousand people and it didn’t in any way indicate the innovations that he had been responsible for. Nor could I tell what campaigns he had worked on or what strategies he had crafted and executed. So a quick glance would not have separated him from the pack.

I sent this resume to a recruiter friend.  Here is some of her feedback: “He looks good but there’s a but… I don’t really get the actual hands-on work or accomplishments/impacts on business from each of his roles. It’s TOO topline and needs to go deeper.”

Wonderful and succinct feedback. This is advice that we can all take to heart as we review our resumes.  (You do do that regularly don’t you?) Make sure it tells clearly and simply what you have done and what you can do. You have to show that you can do it yourself, that you have done it and with what success. The days of the manager who just sits in the office and manages other people are over.

Writing our own resume can be a trip down memory lane, with all those snapshots illustrating the twists and turns of our lives. But a stranger reviewing your resume is not interested in your life story  they want to know are you the best person to fill their position. To them this is not about the story of your life, it is about the next chapter of theirs.

So select and present the details under each position so that they support your positioning as clearly stated at the top.  Make them vivid  put in detail that no one else could. Saying that you “built a world class division” doesn’t mean much in this age of superlatives  instead provide specifics that actually carry weight and bring your value to life. 

Be tough on yourself.  Check each element of your resume to see if it supports the clear story you want to tell.  Then check each element to see if it is unique to you.  If it is generic, then rewrite it  reframe it.  Squint at your resume (metaphorically of course!) – look at it sideways – and see if the main idea is so strong that it still shines off the page.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by Michael Pollock

I enjoy your contributions to Cynopsis and I have a question for you or your experts on the interview itself, three times I’ve had what I thought were great interviews with the potential employer saying to me “You’re perfect, sounds great and we’ll contact you” and then I hear crickets. The only feedback I’ve gotten is that they know I have the job skills, experience, etc but they didn’t get to “know me.” I am not certain what I’m doing wrong since I doubt they really want to hear about how I have two kids, two mortgages, blah blah blah and I also am not certain why they don’t just thank me for coming in instead of going out of their way to say I’m “perfect” and “love your energy” and then nothing.

Perhaps some advice on the best way to wrap up an interview or to leave a good impression?

You are right; they don’t want to hear about your mortgages.  My suspicion is that you are presenting the right information about yourself but not in a sufficiently personal and engaging manner. They want to know how you’ll fit in, how you’ll go about what you have to do. Try telling little stories about the projects you have done and use them to illustrate your obsessiveness, or passion or how well you led a particular team or how you overcame some specific set of obstacles.  Think about these stories as something that only you could tell.  They should demonstrate something about how you approach your work and your co-workers. These are the things that help them to get to know you.  Having the qualifications and experience is only half the battle:  do you have a sense of humor, are you curious, do you pay attention to detail and so on?  These are qualities that fall into the “knowing you” category.  As you leave, you could say “I really enjoyed this interview, and I learned a lot from it … in fact I am going to follow up on such and such a thing and will get back to you with what I discover.”  This is not a script, but an attitude that says so much about you.  But of course  make it your own, otherwise it won’t work.

How serious are companies about hiring during the holiday season? Of course I’ll still do everything I always do but is the return as great this time of year?
Certainly it is harder to get people’s attention at this time of year as they leave the office a bit earlier for shopping or parties or what have you  but the pressure may still be on them to have new hires on board to hit the ground running in January when new budgets kick in. So it is quite possible that they are still looking.  But nonetheless  it is clearly harder to get anything new going over the Thanksgiving to New Year period.  But I am working on a corporate project right now that is showing no sign of abating just because it’s holiday season.  So you never know  you can’t assume that nothing is doing.  In fact other applicants may be relaxing  so why not take this opportunity to be the one who is still in the game?
