Cynopsis: Classified

 

Advantage

08.31.10

Good morning – it’s Tuesday, September 7, 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. 

What is your Greatest Weakness?

Experts call it a contemptible question, one that encourages dishonesty, extreme distress and, after all, shouldn’t the interviewer be smart enough to determine your weaknesses during an interview without asking?  Isn’t that part of what they are getting paid for?

And yet it is asked time and time again, hiring managers at the ready with plausible reasons why they ask it, while countless interviewees suffer through elusive answers in hopes of moving on to the next question.

First, let’s eliminate the, “I’m a workaholic,” or “I’m a perfectionist,” responses  immediately.  It’s a sham, it was a sham fifty years ago and it will be a sham tomorrow.  Let it go.

Here is some great advice on how to answer this question, just be honest … almost.  Or more succinctly, be as honest as you can without crippling your chances.  But if your weakness prohibits you from doing a good job, please consider another position.  If your looking for a position in sales, and you hate people, even if you convincingly lie about it during the interview, it will come back to haunt you.  You are going to be a rotten sales person.  You’re going to be fired soon and now you’ll have to explain why.

First, research the job.  Find a skill that the job does not, and hopefully will not, require.

If you are lousy at this skill, bingo, you’ve got your answer. 

If not, pick the least essential skill that you do poorly.

Just as important as naming your weakness, you must counter it with how you are getting better at it.

“I don’t like public speaking, so I am currently taking a class in how to cure this fear.”

“I’m not as up to date on Dreamweaver as I would like to be, but I have enrolled in an online school that will bring me to the cutting edge and beyond.”

In summary, when asked this detestable question, answer it honestly without destroying your chances at getting the job, and always combine your answer with how your are personally improving the situation.

Next week: Things to Consider before taking that job

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] .

Don ‘ t forget LinkedIn
by Michael Pollock

I am sure you are well established on LinkedIn, but are you using it effectively in your job search? It is just too easy for us to let it sit there passively in the background, but there are some simple and effective ways to extract value.

Start by connecting to as many people as you can think of. Duh! But I am sure there are some you have missed. Don’ t just think of people who might hire you…connect to people you once worked with. Connect to people who worked for you. Connect to people who might know someone who could help you in the future. Look closely at who is connected to your connections; I know you will have several, ” Oh, yes. I had forgotten about her!” moments.

I was working today with a filmmaker who has been specializing in medical topics. He is going to see his dentist in a couple of weeks. This dentist goes to medical conferences and knows lots of people who might need film. What if he was on LinkedIn? What if some of his professional connections wanted film made for their professional associations? What if they worked for pharmaceutical companies? Sounds like a valuable connection for this filmmaker. Who are the equivalents in your field?

Another excellent use: as you look at job ads on Cynopsis Classified Advantage or other boards, note the companies who seem to have good opportunities for you. Then search those companies on LinkedIn  there is a drop down menu on the search field that lets you search for people or for companies. See if anyone from those firms knows anyone that you know. Then email your friend and ask to be introduced. I recommend not using the automated LinkedIn introduction tool  make the request something more personal. So now you can network your way into the hiring company and do your research and make the connections you need to get you in there.

Does your LinkedIn headline clearly indicate your value to a hirer? As with all communications  each piece needs to make the reader want more. Does your summary give a clear expression of what you offer and engagingly differentiate you from all the others? Does your chronology include experience and specifics that support and flesh out your summary? Does your specialty list include all the keywords that recruiters might use in a job search?

As with so many of these online systems there are depths that I never plumb, and I’ m not taking you there. But start with the easy-to-use pieces; get them working together guided by your constant attention and research and insight. It really is an adventure, a voyage of exploration. Keep poking around and you will find valuable connections you never knew you had and see more and more ways to get your carefully constructed message into the right hands.

Questions from our Readers
Answered by Michael Pollock

Recently, I lost my job due to my company’s financial state. Downsizing was a must, and I, unfortunately, got the cut. The thing is, it was almost a blessing in disguise. After leaving, I was happier, not something you’d expect after losing one’s job. After re- evaluating my industry and the role I played, in the pursuit of happiness, I have decided to career change. It’s not been easy, as the unstructured freedom during the work-week has lost a little bit of it’s glitter, but I still think I’m heading in the right direction. I have chosen a new career path, but my question is this: how can I make my Linkedin profile reflect my career change? I of course want to put down all of my prior work experience, however, I also want to prove that I can do another job and that my skills translate. If I post my past experience, won’t a potential employer think, why would I hire this person from X industry, when we’re looking for someone who has experience in Y industry? Does that make sense? Please let me know what you would recommend.

I suggest you think very carefully about the skills and experience that will be desirable in your new career. Consider the needs of your potential new employer and find the angle on your past that could be relevant and persuasive. Make the fact of the change and your prior experience an added value. Use the summary section to express this  emphasizing the relevant and unique strengths that come from your rich background in other fields that makes you a stronger candidate than the pack of straight-liners you’ll be competing with. Reframe the skills section as well as the details on all your prior positions to support your new positioning. Certain things that were awesome in your old field may have to be dropped because they are no longer relevant, or worse, contradict your new story. With a strong but unusual background, you are most likely to appeal to a smart employer who thinks outside the envelope, and that is likely to be someone you would want to work for.

I find that LinkedIn is so business oriented, that it doesn’t have much opportunity for one’s personality to come through. Is this a good thing? Or is there something I can do with my account to make it seem less like a cover letter and resume, and reflect other aspects of my life?
LinkedIn is primarily a source for business connections. If you really want to express your entire personality in a social media setting, Facebook may be a better vehicle for you.

That said, on LinkedIn, the writing style you use for your summary section is an important way to let your personality shine through. Casual, jargony, straightforward, insightful  all these attributes will tell your reader something important. Different employers and industries have different codes and standards. The formal, passive writing style that appeals to academe is anathema to media people.

Another way to express your personality is through the updates you can post near the top of your profile, though do bear your target audience in mind when you update and remember what qualities they are looking for. By all means if it supports your business case you can mention your hobbies or other interests. If you are an ex-Marine, or a nonprofit board member for example these could certainly be important to include.

But do be sure not to make it look as if your eye will always be on the clock and your mind not on the job.
