How do you reinvigorate a Stale Job?

I have spent the last year doing research on a book about what it takes for people to find a job they love and be successful in it. What is missing for most people when they get stuck in a rut is the fact that they have lost the passion for their job. Passion is one of the most critical elements that was mentioned in every interview I did for my book. If you are not passionate and excited about what you do, you will begin to feel stagnant and resentful towards your employer, however, often times it is not the employer’s fault. Sometimes, people just lose sight of their goals and what they are committed to in their lives.

Below is what I would recommend to reinvigorate a stale job:

1) Take inventory of your most valuable skills (communication, writing, selling, organizing etc…) and begin to look at what aspects of your job you most enjoy (traveling, planning, working with clients). You can do this by making a “Wishlist” of what your ideal job would look like. Your ideal job does not simply mean money and title, it also means things such as environment, job duties, travel etc… Look at both the tangible and intangible things.

2) Then begin to look at what is missing in your job, ie. money, challenge, more interaction with customers and so forth that would make a difference in your current career.

3) From there, go out and interview at least 5 people in your life and ask them questions about where you have surprised them, disappointed them, where they feel you could improve, etc…Doing this will help to give you a realistic idea of what you are good at and what you need to work on. You can interview co-workers, family members, or acquaintances. 

4) Once you have done the above steps, begin to formulate a 5 year strategy of where you see yourself and what sort of career path you need to get on. Perhaps your original position inspired you when you first started in it 6 years ago, but now you have lost sight of what your end goal was.

5) Finally, once you have created a 5 year strategy, work your way backwards year by year of how you got yourself to your 5 year goal. In doing this, many people will begin to feel re-inspired about their current career or perhaps realize that they need to start moving in a different direction.

The bottom line is, if you are not passionate about what you do, you will always find yourself dissatisfied with your job.

Are you giving up too Easily?


 
Have you ever found yourself wondering if you would have pushed
yourself just a little bit harder if you would have succeeded? I found
myself thinking about this very question just the other night. I was
playing a game on my iPhone at the airport called “Unblock Me.” (Very
appropriate name for this discussion!) It is a very simple game that
requires you to move blocks in different directions until your main
colored block has a clear path to exit the puzzle.
    I think
this game can be a great analogy for life. You see, I had played this
puzzle several times to no avail. It was not until about the 5th time
that I realized that I was missing a critical move and was quitting the
game too soon. If I had just made that one additional move the whole
puzzle would have unfolded very easily. This gave me an “ah ha” moment
when I began to realize how many times in life I stop just short of my
goal because I think the obstacles in front of me are insurmountable
and that I have no moves left.
   This analogy became even more
clear to me on Saturday night when I was attending a VIP networking
event in San Francisco. When I first arrived at the party, there very
only a few people there and I began talking to someone standing near me
about business, with no intention of speaking to this person for more
then a few minutes to pass the time.
   There were a few key VIPs
that I really wanted to speak with that night, so as the party began to
fill up, I had already planned my exit strategy from that initial
conversation. As luck would have it, I wound up talking to this initial
person longer then I had originally anticipated, and wound up getting
some extremely valuable information about book publishing out of the
conversation. I would have never gained that information if it were not
for the fact that I had stayed that extra 5 minutes to talk to him.
  
Ask yourself this: How often have you stopped short of your goals? How
many times do you give up because you think it will not make a
difference?
   Think about this tonight before you go to bed and
make a list of the top 10 things you wish you had accomplished, but
stopped short of because of some obstacle. Then look at your list, pick
one thing that you had given up on, and begin to look at that thing
from a new perspective. Write down 10 ways that you could push through
and achieve that goal if you really wanted to. Try to think outside of
the box and look at this goal in a new way. Do not tell yourself “I
cannot do it,” instead, ask yourself “How can I do it?”
   If you
can break through even one block, that can help to give you a clear
path towards achieving your goals! When you break through just one of
your blocks you are on your way having everything you want out of life!

Have you CHOSEN your career?







    Have you chosen your career? Is
your job something you are passionate about? If not, then know that you are not
alone. A large number of people go their whole lives doing something they are
not inspired by, yet they do it all the same because they figure it is the
best that they can get. This sort of apathetic view of life and of one’s career
is very comfortable for a lot of people, and as human beings, we like to be
comfortable. The reason that many people never try to change careers is
because they are scared of the unknown.  They are terrified of moving out of their comfort zone. On
one hand, you have a job that you know you can perform adequately, and be paid
a fair enough sum for, but on the flip side you live your life always
wondering what could have been if perhaps you had pursued a different path.

    Have you ever found yourself
wondering what life would have been like if you had not chosen the career path
that you are on? If instead of going to law school, you had chosen to
take an art class or become a teacher. What would your life look like? Would
that be a life that you find fulfilling and that you would be excited to get
out bed every day and do?

    How many of us hear our alarm go
off at 6am and dread getting up to go to work? How many hours and days of your
life are you willing to waste hating your job and complaining about how unfair
it is that you are not paid more or treated better? Would you like to know a
secret of 6 figure earners?  Here
is a secret of many of the 6, 7, and 8 figure earners that I interviewed: 

They
are not willing to settle just for the sake of being comfortable! When their alarm goes off at 6am
they are typically excited to get out of bed, and cannot wait to start another
day doing something they love. What would life be like for you if you were
exhilarated every day by the work that you did and the contribution that you
made to others? Wouldn’t it be a life worth living if you got to wake up every day and do something you loved? Making money and being successful in your chosen field is HARD WORK. It takes a lot of dedication and perseverance to achieve 6 figure success, but once you have, you will never want to go back. 


In my next blog, we will discuss how to go about choosing the field that most inspires you, and how to find a career that can not only make you 6 figures, but can also create fulfillment and contentment in your life.

Getting More than you Give

Whoever
said: It is better to give than to receive was definitely on the right track.
Whether you believe in karma, dharma or just doing something good for the sake
of doing it, giving is one of the most powerful tools of successful people.
Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates are two perfect examples of this. Even though they both are
worth billions they never stop figuring out ways to give back to those in need.
Whether your idea of giving is to open a school in an impoverished area, feed the hungry, volunteer for your favorite charity or
simply give your money to a charitable cause that you believe in, giving back
can be an amazing source of fulfillment.

 

In
life many of the most successful people, 6 figure earners included, use their
wealth to do something positive to contribute and give back to their communities. The more you
make the higher your status becomes, and the more people begin to look at you as
a role model or example. There is nothing more powerful in this world than
being able to be a contribution to another human being.

 

Contribution
comes in many forms. You can contribute money to a group or individual or make
a difference by donating your time. Regardless there are thousands of
organizations that need your assistance. Lance Armstrong is probably one of the
greatest examples of someone who is committed to making a difference in this
world through his contributions. He was personally affected by testicular
cancer and used that to motivate himself to create the Live Strong Foundation. In
doing so, he has raised millions and millions of dollars using his celebrity to
help raise money for cancer research.

 

You
do not have to be a celebrity or a billionaire to make a difference though. Just look at Mother Theresa. She is a perfect example of one person who made a huge impact. Any
one person can make a difference simply by acknowledging the people in their
lives that make a difference. I was once asked to participate in an exercise
where each day we were asked to acknowledge at least one person in our life. It is amazing
the difference you can make in another person’s life simply by telling them
thank you. In my case, I spent each day acknowledging various people in my
life, from my parents to the security guard who let me up every day in my
building to the parking garage attendant, Jorge, who made sure my car was
safe every day while I was at work.

 

It
really is amazing how the little things in life can make the greatest impact. Imagine
what life would be like if you refused to take anything for granted. If you
thanked every person you encountered for the difference they make in your life.
What would life be like? What would the world be like if we all took the time
to acknowledge the everyday people who make a difference?

I
encourage each of you to go out in your life and acknowledge at least
one person for the difference they make. Doing this will not only make
a difference in the other person’s life, but can also greatly
contribute to your own.

Connecting with Executives







I recently had an opportunity to listen to a speaker, who
also happens to be one of the world’s greatest connectors. His name is Larry
Benet. Larry is known throughout the world for his ability to instantaneously
connect with multi-millionaires and billionaires anywhere he goes. Part of what
he attributes his success to is attitude and another part of Larry’s success is
his willingness to be fearless.

            Today
I am going to give you some ideas on how to become unstoppable when dealing
with executives once you get past a gate-keeper. Larry does not let a little
thing like a gate-keeper stop him. Whether Larry is at an event where he meets
a potential lead or is on the phone with a potential lead, he has an uncanny
ability to relate to and connect with people of all levels. Today, I am going
to offer you some insights on how you can be just as fearless as Larry. In my
last blog I had shared with you that I would blog about how to connect with an
executive once you have them on the phone. Below is a sample of a script I
would use once I have gotten past the gate-keeper and now have the executive on
the phone:

Start off related like you already
know the person and already have a rapport with them:

            “Hello,”
Executive (let’s call him Bob)

            “Hi
Bob, it is Jennifer. How are you?” Me

            “Hi
Jennifer, I am sorry what is this regarding?” Bob

            “I
had noticed we shared ABC Group on Linkedin and thought you might be a great
person to reach out to regarding X. I wanted to connect with you and see if you
had a minute to talk. “

“I don’t have much time to speak
right now.”

“No problem, I got it, I know you
are extremely busy. I just noticed that you have XYZ need and wanted to connect
with you to find out how I can be a resource for you. “

            This
is one of the most valuable things I learned from Larry. Offer to be a
resource! What I learned from Larry was that you should always find out how YOU
can help THEM. Ask them what project they are most passionate about and/or how
you can be a resource for them. Doing this creates rapport and shows them that
you are not just interested in making it about you. Another tip he gave us was
the 90/10 rule. Spend 90% of the time allowing the executive to talk and 10% of
the time talking about yourself. There are many tips I can give you about being
more effective at networking and/or connecting with important people, however,
if you follow those two principles, you will find a significant increase in
your success.

The Buddy-System

    Have you been looking for a job for more than 6 months? More than a year? If you have been looking for a job for an extended period of time, and have not seen the results you are looking for, then I have a suggestion I would like you to try on. I call it “The Buddy-System.” This is a pretty straightforward job hunting method with a new spin on it. Studies have shown that 80% of job seekers find jobs through casual acquaintances. Many people have heard this statistic before, but how many job seekers have maximized its potential?

    People often look for jobs within their circle of friends or connections. The only problem with this is that those people likely know the same people that you know, and so they may not be the best resource for you in your job search. I suggest, broadening your network by finding yourself a “buddy” who is not part of your normal networking group, and who is also looking for a job. Networking events are great, but eventually your circle of connections winds up overlapping because you attend many of the same events with the same people.

    The buddy-system is based on the principle that your goal is to get your buddy a job via introductions to appropriate parties, assisting them with landing interviews, and any other methods you can think of. In turn, your buddy should do the same for you. If each person commits to doing this for their buddy, the results will be astounding. It is like having your own personal PR agent promoting you and connecting you with people 24/7.

    In order for you and your buddy to be a resource for one another, I have a few suggestions I would like to make:

    *Find a buddy outside of your normal circle of connections by using Social Media sites such as Linkedin and/or Twitter. Look for people     with common interests and goals who live in your area. Try not to connect with people you already have a direct connection with, as     your circles will likely already overlap.

    *Once you have found this buddy and proposed your new symbiotic relationship to your buddy, offer to meet with your them so that you     can get to know one another better. When you take the time to get to know your buddy better it will help you both to become a better     resource for each other.

    *Do not choose a buddy completely out of your field, otherwise they might not be able to represent you as effectively as possible if they     do not understand your business and where you are coming from. For example if you are in Engineering, you might not want to choose     someone in Human Resources for your buddy (unless they worked in HR at an engineering related company) as they may not fully     understand the scope of the work that you do.

    *Check in with your buddy daily. You want to stay fresh in each other’s minds, and communicate daily on the progress you are making.     This will help you both to stay focused on your respective job searches and will give you a sense of accountability towards one another.     You can also treat each other as confidants regarding what is happening with your job search. This can give you the sense of being     part of a team, which can help to build confidence and alleviate stress.

    *Finally, think of the buddy-system as a game. Expectations are pre-made resentments. If you EXPECT your buddy to find you a job,     and stop doing the work yourself, you will be sorely disappointed. However, if you see the buddy-system as a fun and effective way to     broaden your circle of connections, and if you use it as such, it can be a powerful tool in helping you to land your next job!

Taking it One Day at a Time

It is easy to get distracted from your job search by everyday things. Your family, your friends, and a variety of other commitments are just waiting to pull you away from your job search. When you are looking for a job it is important to stay focused and to not lose sight of what you are committed to, ie. finding a job. The longer you have been looking for a job, the more challenges and distractions you may find you are faced with. Below I have offered a few tips for staying motivated and focused in your job search.
-The most important thing that you can do to stay focused in your job search is to set yourself up with a schedule, just like you would have if you were in the office, and stick to it! Granted, there will be times where you will need to adjust the schedule, but overall, having a set schedule will help you have some sense of normalcy.
-Wake up every morning and give yourself at least 5 minutes to focus on what you want to accomplish that day before you do anything else. If you spend each morning thinking about what you want to accomplish it will help you to focus your day on what needs to get done and will help you to plan more effectively.
-Check your email first thing in the morning. It is important not to miss out on any important job interviews that may have come up. It is also important to check your email first thing in the morning because many websites such as www.indeed.com and www.jobshouts.com offer features that will send you an updated email with any new positions that have come up in the last 24 hours (this email is typically sent out first thing in the morning). It is important to jump on these opportunities when they are fresh so that you are at the top of the pile of those who are being considered.
-Apply to jobs in the morning. Do not put off sending in your resume until the end of the day. Remember, the early bird gets the worm and you do not want to miss out on your dream job because you put off applying to a particular position until it was too late! Recruiters and hiring managers are often inundated with resumes, and may find what they are looking for in the first 100 resumes that are submitted. Resumes that are sent later in the day can often be lost in the shuffle.
-Only spend an hour a day using Social Media and use that hour of time intentionally. Once you have found the jobs you are interested in and have sent your resume out to those jobs, it is now time to use Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter to help facilitate your job search. Use this time wisely! Tweet about relevant articles in your industry, use Linkedin to start discussions related to your field, and finally, connect with Facebook friends to see who they might know that could be a resource for you. Try to avoid going onto these websites more then once a day. Social Media can be a wonderful tool to use in your job search, but it can also be a distraction if not used properly. To find out more about effectively using Social Media in your job search please go to: http://jhccs.com/Social_Media_Training.html
-Save the networking for evenings or later in the day. Networking can be a lot of fun and a great resource for finding a new job, but it can also take a lot of work and can require a lot of energy. It is better to get your other work done first before you sap all of your energy by attending a networking event.
If you follow these steps and create a schedule that works for you, you will quickly find yourself with more free time and more of the results you want: Interviews!

Is Ageism an Issue?

Before I get started on this blog, I would first like to thank William Flower, as well as my other connections on Linkedin who offered me several great blogging ideas today. On occasion, not that often, I do run out of ideas on what to blog on. Today was one of those days. That is why it is so valuable to have a network of connections to offer support when needed. I am very grateful for the many ideas that were sent to me today on topics people would like to see blogs on, one such idea was offered by William Flower: Ageism. William wrote:

Here’s an idea.. as you notice, a lot of our unemployed people in PSM (Pink Slip Mixer) meets are middle-aged. Let’s talk about age discrimination. Although illegal, it’s common yet quite unprovable. What strategies can we adopt in our job search?

Thanks again for opening up a discussion on such an important topic William.

Even though it is illegal, you are right, ageism does exist. There are a number of companies that will and do discriminate against people because of their age, however, ageism is not quite as prevalent as you might think. After having been a recruiter for over 6 years, I can say that ageism does occur on occasion, but there are ways to mitigate its effects.

The first thing to note about ageism is that if a company is going to discriminate against you, they will.

Strategy #1: Do not worry about posting a picture on Social Networking sites (as long as it is a professional picture that is). 
-I have had a lot of job seekers ask me if they should post their picture on websites such as Linkedin, and my answer is always YES. A company is just as likely to discriminate against you based on a picture (even though it is illegal) as they will in person. Personally, I would not want to work for any company that would discriminate against me to begin with, so I would rather have them not call me in for an interview in the first place and waste my time. That is up to you. If you are concerned that your picture will knock you out of the running because you are “too old” that is at your discretion.

Strategy #2: Only go back 10 years on your resume, and do not bother listing your graduation dates. 
    -You only need to go back 10 years on your resume. This is completely unrelated to protecting your age, Only going back 10 years  is just proper protocol agreed upon by most resume writers, recruiters and career coaches.

Something to note: If you worked at a particular company for 30 years, I would suggest listing all 30 years of your experience with that company. Some people may disagree with me on this, but my thoughts are that having strong stability on your resume is still a good thing. I have had others suggest that it can hurt you to list 1980-2010, but I have found that good companies will still appreciate someone who is loyal and shows strong stability.There are certain companies that might discriminate based on this fact, but again, I would recommend avoiding these companies in the first place.

    -It is unnecessary for you to list when you graduated college, and thus you should not feel obligated to add your graduation dates unless you choose to. Putting a graduation date on a resume is a little more tricky then listing 30 years of experience or putting a picture up. If you put that you graduated in 1972, most people will automatically assume that means you are approximately 60 years old give or take a few years based on the average age people graduate college. The same calculation might not necessarily be made based on a simple picture or work history. My recommendation is not to list graduation dates as they are not as relevant to your overall resume.

Strategy #3: If you get to the interview stage, DON’T MAKE YOUR AGE AN ISSUE!
-If age IS NOT already an issue for the company you are interviewing with, DO NOT make it one! I once had a job seeker I was working with who was about to turn 60 years old. I had never once considered her age, and sent her out to my clients the way I would any other candidate because she was just as qualified as anyone else. Unfortunately, she did not feel the same way. After her initial interview with a particular company I sent her out to, I received a call back from a Recruiting Manager who said they were passing on her. The Recruiting Manager went on to explain that the job seeker had expressed concern several times during the interview about how old she was and whether the executives would like her. This Recruiting Manager thought she was well qualified for the position, however, after hearing the candidate’s insecurities about her age, the Recruiting Manager was reticent to pass her resume along in the interview process. After getting this feedback I called the job seeker to softly coach her on the subject, and then next interview she went in for, she got the job!

Just remember, ageism is out there, but there are only a small percentage of companies that will discriminate based on your age. If you do not make your age an issue, most companies will not either! Look at your age as an asset, and so will the next company you interview with.

Can Linkedin hurt your job search?

Linkedin is a wonderful tool that, when used properly, can be instrumental in helping you land your next job. The challenge is that often times people misunderstand how to effectively use Linkedin, and that can come back to hurt them in the long run. Here are a few things to be consider when using Linkedin:

-Having an incomplete profile can hurt you. Linkedin has a lot of “Google Juice.” This means that if your name is even remotely unique, and you have created a profile on Linkedin, it will likely be the first or second thing that pops up when someone Google searches you. It is for this very reason that you want to make sure you have a complete profile that reflects who you are in the best possible light. You should create an on-line brand that represents who you are and what you offer in an effective, cohesive and consistent way.
-No profile picture = Less connections. People are less inclined to connect with people who do not have a profile picture.  Not having a profile picture can often make people wonder what you are trying to hide. News flash: If a company is going to discriminate against you based on what your profile picture looks like, they will also discriminate against you in person. Discrimination happens a lot less often then people think. Only about 5-10% of companies will discriminate based on things such as age or race. Unfortunately it does happen on occasion, but if I were you, I would not want to work for a company that might discriminate against me in the first place. Regardless, do not put up a random picture of yourself, try to make sure that the picture is somewhat professional.
-You are more likely to get hired if you have recommendations. Recommendations on Linkedin are taken very seriously as it is nearly impossible to fake a Linkedin recommendation. If a company Google’s you and sees that you have several recommendations via Linkedin, they will likely take your application much more seriously. A company could also be concerned if you do not have any recommendations, so it is always advisable to have at least one recommendation.

-Be careful who you associate with.

Should you use a Recruiter?

When is it appropriate to use a Recruiter?

1) Using a Recruiter can be very beneficial when you are working in a specialized area. Recruiters often help companies find candidates for hard to fill, specialized positions.
2) When you are looking for temporary work. If you are looking to supplement your income a Recruiter can be a great resource. When you register with an agency they will keep you on their active list and will keep you updated on any contract jobs that meet your job search criteria.
Why should you use a Recruiter?
*A Recruiter can often provide you with resources such as testing and internal information on specific companies and hiring managers that can help you land your next job
*Recruiters can critique your resume and can offer valuable information regarding what companies are looking for
*They will typically negotiate your salary for you
*A Recruiter may have access to job openings that you will not find on Monster or Careerbuilder
*One of the main reasons a job seeker might want to consider using a Recruiter is that using a Recruiter is FREE to the job seeker. Companies pay Recruiters to find them the right candidates, but Recruiters do not typically charge a job seeker to represent them.
Why should you be careful of using a Recruiter?
*A bad Recruiter can send your resume out to potential employers WITHOUT your permission and/or knowledge. Keep in mind that, unlike financial professionals, Recruiters do not have to report to any regulatory agency. Just like any position, there are good Recruiters and bad Recruiters out there. It is your job to interview your Recruiter and to make sure they are looking out for your best interests before you decide to move forward working with them.
         -Be careful about posting your resume on Monster & Careerbuilder! Recruiters can find your resume on those sites and send your          resume out without your knowledge.
         -Set up rules and realistic expectations with your Recruiter up front. Let your Recruiter know in advance that you want to have               every position run by you first before your resume gets sent out. Ideally, you should have an Excel spreadsheet with WHERE your          resume has been sent, to WHOM it has been sent, WHEN it was sent, WHAT company it was sent to, and if a Recruiter did send          your resume, be sure to list WHICH agency represented you for that position. 
         –Recruiters have anywhere from a 6 month to a 1 year contract with each company they work with. This is why it is important to               always know which agency sent you for a particular position. If ABC agency sent your resume to XYZ company in May, and now          XYZ company has another position posted in July, you will be obligated to go through ABC agency again if you want to pursue               that opportunity. This is not always a bad thing, but it is something you should be aware of and keep track of.
         -If you are looking to make a career transition, a Recruiter might not be the best resource for you. Recruiters are paid a fee by a               company to find EXACTLY what that company is looking for. This means Recruiters might not have as much wiggle room to try               and get a candidate an interview when that candidate’s experience is not a direct fit. 
Overall, Recruiters can be a wonderful resource for you in your job search when used properly. Do not rely 100% on a Recruiter to find you a job. They will do the best they can, but cannot find every job seeker a job every time. It is important to always be honest, patient and respectful with Recruiters, and if you are, you will reap the rewards!
