Cynopsis: Classified

 

Advantage

10/25/11

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, October 25, 2011, and this is your weekly issue of Cyn opsis: Classified Advantage! 

Things to do right before an Interview

Wear clothes that fit. If you have a more stylish suit, but it’s a bit tight, wear the less stylish but better fitting suit.

Drive to the company a couple of days prior to the interview, at the same time you’ll be driving on the day of the interview.  This will allow you to make reasonably sure you arrive on time, which is 10-15 minutes early.

Be sure you have a handkerchief or some tissues.  Nothing worse than sneezing into your bare hands in front of anyone, much less the interviewer.

Turn off your phone.

Bring several copies of your resume and cover letter.  They will already have one, but having copies to hand out might make it more convenient for them.

Bring a pen and legal pad.  You may want to take notes, which is perfectly acceptable, and write down other information given to you during the interview.  Have a “Cheat Sheet” with all the information you want to cover; and a list of questions for the interviewer based on everything you have researched about the company and the industry.

A portfolio if applicable.

Have business cards with all your contact information including; LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and a website address if you have one.

Bring a briefcase so if the interviewer gives you papers or a handbook, you’ll have someplace to put them without anything getting lost.

Mirror check before going into the interview: hair, clothes, nose and teeth.

Have a breath mint just prior to the interview.  A breath mint is preferable to gum because you can dispose of the breath mint more readily than the gum.  Neither should still be in your mouth during the interview.

Don’t take any medication prior to the interview unless absolutely necessary.  You need to be mentally agile, many medications fog the brain.

Eat before you interview, but don’t try anything new.  Eat something your stomach is accustom to.  Enough said.

Bring some sort of hand washing system, towelette or non rinsing soap, so you can wash your hands before the interview.  We all get nervous while waiting, except Robert California, but you don’t want to start with a wet handshake.

Take time to relax and just think about all the positive things you want to say while being interviewed.

Take care of these things and you’ll be able to concentrate on the interview itself.

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
Don’t Go It Alone When Conducting Your Job Search
by Joel Garfinkle

Conducting a job search, especially over an extended period of time, can be a lonely and frustrating experience. And it is little consolation that there are millions of others out there in the same boat as you are.

But you don’t need to go it alone.

There are dozens of resources out there that can help you enhance your job search efforts while providing the emotional support you need to get through this difficult time.

Here are just a few:

Tap into Networking and Support Groups
You’ll find dozens of networking and support groups online. Logon to job-hunt.org for list for each state. Then click on the name of the group to visit their website.

Take Advantage of Government Services.
Logon to servicelocator.com to find links to local government services that provide job search training and support to those who have lost their jobs.

Join an Online Chat Group
You’ll also find numerous chat groups online where you can share stories and get support from others going through the job search process.

Join the Social Networking Crowd
You can find and network with people with common interests via social networking, such as Linkedin and Facebook.

Form Your Own Support Group
You can do this online or in person. Tap into your personal network to find others who are in the market for a job. Agree to meet regularly to share stories, pass along possible job leads, use each other as a sounding board, etc.

Find a Mentor
Seek out an experienced and trusted friend or former associate and ask them to be a mentor to you during this period. Someone who works in HR, for example, would be an excellent resource who knows the ins and outs of the hiring process, what makes for an effective resume, etc.

Consider an Executive Coach
Although this can be a more costly option, this investment could pay off in finding a better paying and more personally satisfying job in less time compared to “fending for yourself.”

Whichever approach you choose, it’s important to stay positive during your job search period. So when you associate with other job-seekers, stay away from those who are negative or are always complaining.

A study conducted earlier this year of MBA graduates found that those who were optimistic got job offers more quickly and once they were hired were more likely to be promoted than their less optimistic peers.

Bottom line: stay positive and good things are more likely to happen to you!

Questions from our Readers
Answered by Joel Garfinkle

I have a lot of tattoos, most of which can be covered, some not. I’ve used body make up to cover the back of my hands during interviews, but I feel like I’m lying. What should I do?

Many will argue that times have changed at the workplace and that, the tattoo is now an acceptable component. However, many managers still find that their opinion of an employee was lowered when they saw tattoos on a candidate.

That being said, most of available labor pool adorns body art of some sort. When applying for a job, look at how the current employees are dressed and then dress appropriately for an interview. Definitely, for the interview, cover them and if you are offered the job ask them their policy on visible tattoos.

You only get one chance to make a first impression. Jobs where tattoos are not common include bankers, lawyers, accountants and the clergy. Jobs where tattoos may not be such be a hindrance: Advertising, marketing, sales and technology.

I had a job in 2009 that I hated, and I was fired from. With all the liability laws, is it safe for me to say I was let go due to the economic slowdown? What are the chances my former employer will say that I was fired and the reasons why? (I was insubordinate.)

If they don’t ask you if you got fired or what happened at your last job, you really don’t have to offer this piece of information up.Do not mention being fired in cover letters or in resumes.

Don’t start telling a long story which could get you into more trouble by making you look defensive. Keep your answer about the firing issue brief.

If the job you were fired from is further down on your resume, there’s a good chance the employer isn’t going to bother checking it, so admitting to being fired from that job isn’t always in your best interest.

Most reference calls to your former employer; they will simply state that you worked there and the dates you worked for them. In a number of jurisdictions, employers can be sued if they divulge specific issues about your employment, it is considered slanderous. Check your state and local employment laws to see if you are in one of these jurisdictions.

During Joel’s tenure as an outplacement consultant, he has written many books from topics ranging from Getting Ahead to Find a Job in 14 Days. If you are asking for a raise or negotiating a higher salary, order Get Paid What You’re Worth.
