Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
10.26.10

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, October 26, 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. 

Tell a Great Story

It’s not only what you say, but how you say it that counts.  You could be the best candidate for a position, with the best resume, yet the offer might go to someone else.  Someone who told a better story.

One of the best story tellers of all time is Andy Griffith.  Prior to becoming a Broadway and television star, Mr. Griffith was a monologist, he would tell humorous stories to live audiences.  The most famous being, What it Was, Was Football. His first movie was the surprisingly dark and terrific, A Face in the Crowd.  Mr. Griffith played a country bumpkin who could spin a fascinating tale.  Mr. Griffith’s ability to tell a good story, launched his career, as it can for you too.

There are many people who have very impressive resumes, and while interviewing, go over their accomplishments as if it were a checklist.  Checklists are boring. Then there are those who tell a story, a good story.  They entertain and teach. After listening to ten prospective employees, the one that may stand out the most, is the storyteller.  Storytelling does not make up for a poor resume, but when things are close, the storytellers have the edge.  Not just because they are entertaining and different, but because they can communicate effectively and there is an emotional connection to a good story.  They get their point across while captivating their audience. 

Aren’t the best lessons learned this way?  Aren’t the greatest teachers, the greatest communicators all impressive storytellers?  How long can you listen to a verbal checklist before getting bored?  How much more attentive are you when listening to a good story.  And the beauty of storytelling is, you can practice.  You can practice and hone it until family and friends love the story you’re telling.

So when prepping for an interview, take one of those awful questions that make people squirm, “What makes you, you?” or “What is your greatest weakness?” and tell them a story.  One that includes all the facts you want to get across, yet, still entertaining.

So your choices are: list your accomplishment and have the interviewer thinking about dinner half way through or tell your story, entertain and educate, demonstrate your ability to communicate and make an emotional connection with the interviewer.  After all, who would you pick?

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
Asking For a Raise
by Steve Thomson

It’s been widely quoted  even here in Cynopsis  that 93% of our communication is delivered through methods other than our words; 38% the sound of our voice and 55% our non  verbal communication, or ‘body language’.

I’m not going to get into a debate about the validity of this statistic, which is based on work by Albert Morabian back in the 1960s. Instead what I’d like to offer is my own observations based on more than 20 years of work in the field of communication training:

  • Every communication is a presentation. Treat it as such and you’ll make friends and influence people.
  • Roughly 40% of what people retain from your presentation is how you sound, and roughly 50% of what people retain of your presentation is how you look, or in other words your body language, which leaves that lonely little 10% available for your carefully chosen and crafted words to be remembered.
  • If your voice and body offer a different message from that being delivered by your words you will lose your audience…and that audience (see point 1) might be an interview panel, a commissioning company, a boss…whatever.

If you want to test this, ask someone about the last great presentation they attended, whether it was business maybe a great stand-up show; anything that was mostly spoken word and made a big impression. 

Now ask that person what was said.

They’ll respond with their memories of the event, but won’t be able to recall more than a few words or soundbites, even when the event was only a few hours or days past.

This isn’t to say that you can just cobble your presentation together – the words are still vital to getting your message across  it’s just that you might benefit from making sure that your body is telling the same story as those words!

Steve Thomson is a trainer and coach/mentor with a particular interest in the field of communication. Working with many high profile individuals within sport, media and industry, he is widely regarded as an innovator in presentation and communication skills. Steve is Project Director of London based Profile Training with clients worldwide.

~ ASK THE EXPERTS ~
Questions from our Readers
Answered by Steve Thomson

I once heard that you should set aside one month of job searching for every $10,000 of salary you expect. Was this every true? Is it true now? Is it worse now?

This looks like a ‘Rule of Thumb’ to me, and while some of these rules stem from years of trial, error, experience and so on, others are just neat little phrases that someone has concocted to flesh out their speech or article, but which have no validity in the real world. This is one of the latter. It was never true, it isn’t true now and there is no reason to expect that it will ever become true. The time it takes to find a new post depends on your experience and skills, your ambitions for yourself, your salary expectations, your ability to present yourself well at interview and the existence of the post that fits within those parameters all coming together. It might happen at the first attempt, or it might never happen at all…or anything in between. The best way to speed up the process of finding a post is to build your skill-set, develop a truly positive attitude, have realistic expectations regarding salary and do your homework about the companies with which you want to work. In this way you have a much stronger chance of getting hired when the right post becomes vacant.

I’ve read from previous Cynopsis articles that resumes, at the beginning of the hiring process, are used mostly for elimination of candidates. What are the top reasons a resume will be tossed as compared to others?

When resumes were always sent by mail the process of elimination started with the envelope. An untidy, scrawled or inaccurately addressed envelope would be unlikely to even make it into the selection process! Nowadays, with email being the normal means by which resumes are received, the same sort of logic applies, but probably more to the resume itself. How is it laid out? Is the spelling accurate? Is the information easily read, relevant, consistent? How’s the grammar? A resume that falls down on any of these points is unlikely to get past first base, particularly if there are a large number of applicants. It’s often said that successful companies hire for attitude and train for skills, so a resume that looks or ‘feels’ lazy or too generalized (rather than being specifically targeted at the company and the job being applied for) will often be discarded, even if the experience or education cited seem to be right for the post. As with a job interview, it’s important to do your research on the company, to get a feel for the way they do things, the kind of language they use in their reports, press releases and websites, the general ‘mood’ or ‘style’ of the firm, and try to reflect this in your own resume.
