Cynopsis: Classified

 

Advantage

09/06/11

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, September 6, 2011, and this is your weekly issue of Cyn opsis: Classified Advantage! 

Networking is a Funny Thing

Just received an email from a friend of mine I called about three months ago, thanking me for his promotion.  I did nothing to deserve it but really appreciated the call.  Here is what happened.

My friend works at a company on the outskirts of the television industry, and at Cynopsis, our readers know that everyday we ask a trivia question about TV.  I noticed the day before we published, a name of a person who answered correctly who works at the same company my buddy does.  I called my friend and asked him if he knew Jim, up in Sales, he said he did not.  I told him to give him a call, because in tomorrow’s edition, his name would be the first listed in “Kudos to:”, the list of the people who got the trivia question correct.

My friend made the phone call, Jim was overjoyed not that only had he gotten the question right, but that he would be listed first.  The two talked on the phone for a while and agreed to meet in person for some coffee.  Nothing to do with business, they just liked each other.  They started to meet once a week, talking about their shared love for the game of baseball, and some business, eventually talking more and more about the company they both worked for.

Overtime, Jim became an unofficial mentor to my friend, and last week, recommended him for a promotion.  My friend got the job, and that’s when I received the phone call.  My friend was smart, he never used his “in” with Jim to talk about getting a better job or not being very happy at his present position.  They just talked like two friends until Jim started asking questions about my friend’s job.  And so it all began, networking is a funny thing.  My buddy has a new job, and I have a big smile on my face.

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
UP ALL NIGHT… Baby Stepping Through the Summer
by Jessica Sitomer

I am eagerly awaiting the fall show UP ALL NIGHT, starring Christina Applegate, who can do no wrong when it comes to making me laugh, as a working mom married to stay-at-home dad, Will Arnett. I can only imagine from the previews what hilarity will ensue, yet, I still have the summer to get through. Therefore, to get through the summer, I will take.. baby steps.

Summer, in the entertainment industry, tends to slow everyone down. Most TV shows go on hiatus, executives go on vacations, and people spend weekends at the beach… and yet, there is still work to be done in the form of creating new relationships, re-establishing relationships, and planting the seeds for the next job when the industry picks up again.

So, here are some tips to “baby-step through your summer, in order to have the revitalizing time off you need, while maintaining your business.

1.Create a Target List of 20 shows you want to work on or people with whom you’d like to work. The goal here, is to be clear on what you want in the future not how you’re going to make it happen.

2. Make a commitment to call 1 person Monday through Friday to re-establish your relationship. No matter how busy you are, you can find 15 minutes, once a day to catch up with someone.

3. Go to 1 networking event before September and meet 5 new people.

4. Spend 1 hour a week, researching someone you want to meet/work with.

5. Read 1 book that pertains to the industry. It can be autobiographical, technical, or motivational. (Warning: if you choose to read my book, And…Action! you may be motivated to go beyond baby-steps.

Now go… be like Amy. Baby-step through your summer to maintain momentum.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by
Jessica Sitomer

I haven’t heard much about LinkedIn lately, is it losing its luster? Of the “big three,” how would you rank the importance of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn? Please do answer they all are equal, I would really like to know your opinion. Thank you.

I am very “opinionated” about this one, so no worries about getting “they are all equal from me. LinkedIn, is a business suit, Facebook is business casual and Twitter is a t-shirt and flip flops. They are each used differently.

Linked in is good for connecting through commenting on peoples’ groups and with more “suit wearing” typed people. It is very business oriented. Not very personal.

Facebook (my clear favorite by a landslide) is where you can really get to know people.

By “friending” someone, you can look through their pictures, read their posts, and make comments on their wall. This enables you to identify the people you share common interests with and can potentially build a personal relationship that can turn into a working relationship.

Why? Because people like to work with people they have things in common with. Be sure when friending an industry person you want to get to know, you send your request with a personal note explaining (briefly) why you want to connect. Otherwise, even if you have a friend or two in common, they may thin you’re a hacker.

Twitter, is for sharing information. It is more for marketing purposes to constantly keep your name in front of people. There are many bells and whistles to make this possible that you must be using or you could be wasting your time.

It hasn’t really proven it’s value to me for entertainment professionals, yet. I have clients trying different things on it to see how it could be effective, and other than the big names with the built-in fan base, it hasn’t been helpful. I have quite a few blog entries on social media if you want to check them out.

I’ve just been laid off, but my boss has high hopes of me being rehired in 3 months. I really like where I worked, it was a perfect job for me. How much faith should I put in what the boss told me and how often is it okay to contact him about the status of my position.

No one can tell you how much faith to put in your boss’ hopes. I’m sure your boss has the best of intentions, but only time will tell what’s going to happen in the company. The only way to know how often it is okay to contact him, is to ask. Send an email or make a phone call saying that you are hopeful about his optimism for your return and are respectfully asking how he would like to be followed up with and how often regarding the status of your position.
