Do You Know What The Cube Rules Are?

July 27th, 2017

scot_herrick_fullScot Herrick is a guy I’ve been following for years. In fact, I’ve had dinner with him in Washington and breakfast with him in Wisconsin. He wrote a book under the Now What brand (I’ve Landed My Dream Job — Now What???), and we’ve blogged about each other a lot. I have a lot of respect for him because he’s like most of you…. has a great career and day job, but he is an astute observer of how things work in the workplace, and created a site called CubeRules to help people figure out how to navigate their office.

He was recently interviewed by Zack Andresen on Vocate.me and his responses were so great that I wanted to share them with you. He talked about JibberJobber, which is super cool… but that’s not why I’m sharing his interview. His answers are just too solid to not share.

First, here’s what he said about JibberJobber:

The single most important tool to maintain your personal network and to track job opportunities is at JibberJobber.com. Most of it is free. All of it is awesome.

I love it… thanks Scot :)

Here are the questions Scot responds to… please click to the interview to read his responses.  It will be worth your time to hear from this hiring manager.

  • What’s your professional background? Can you tell us about your interest in helping individuals find a job and success and build employment security? What inspired you to write on this subject?
  • What are the most important lessons you’ve had to learn in your professional life on finding and thriving in a job?
  • What are the challenges new graduates commonly face when searching for a job?
  • What advice would you offer graduates on overcoming these common challenges?
  • What tools or resources should recent grads be using to track down job opportunities?
  • What are your dos and don’ts for resume writing?
  • What would job seekers do to prepare for their interviews? What are best practices for a successful interview?
  • How should recent grads and young job seekers approach salary negotiations? What do they need to know about making sure they’re being compensated fairly?
  • How can new employees ensure they can hit the ground running in a new position? What conversations should they have with HR and their supervisors to help the transition to a job?
  • When should an individual consider changing jobs or careers? What are signs that a particular position is not a good fit?

There you go, some of the most valuable reading your’ll do today :)

LinkedIn for Job Seekers, Fifth Edition Video Course

July 12th, 2017

Today I am adding the twenty three videos that make up the fifth edition of the LinkedIn for Job Seekers course into the JibberJobber Video Library.

I used to sell this as a DVD, then as a streaming course, for $50.  But now you can get this course, AND all of the other courses, AND JibberJobber Premium, for one year for only $60. It’s like it’s Black Friday all the time around here :)  Just login and then click the bottom link to upgrade to get access to this course, the rest of the video library, and all JibberJobber Premium features.

There are still a few tweaks I need to clean up, but instead of making you wait to access it, you’ll have the whole thing today or tomorrow. We’ll do our cleanup in the background and hopefully you won’t notice anything amiss :)

Here are three videos that you’ll like:

LinkedIn Search Optimization: one of the reasons people upgrade is to get better search results. I tell them, why not learn how to use LinkedIn search better, so you get better results whether you upgrade OR NOT?

jibberjobber_linkedin_optimzing_search

Asking for and using Recommendations: LinkedIn has made a big deal out of skills and endorsements, but Recommendations is, in my opinion, much more powerful. This is a great opportunity to network, and get specific language you can use for your personal branding.  In this video I teach you what you are really after (what kind of language is valuable to you), how to ask for a Recommendation and get one that is awesome (instead of vague dribble), and then what to do with the Recommendation once you get it.

jibberjobber_linkedin_v5_usingRecommendations

Optimizing Your LinkedIn Profile: Below The Fold: LinkedIn made some HUGE changes to your Profile in 2017, and it’s so important to understand what we can do to still have people find, read, and be impressed with our Profile.  The beauty of my LinkedIn Profile writing system is that you can add to it and tweak over time… you don’t have to sit down for to solid days and pour all of your creativity into it. Let’s make your Profile great!

jibberjobber_linkedin_v5_belowTheFold

Those are just three screenshots… you can see the videos are about ten minutes long…. I tried to make them shorter because all the experts say we our attention spans are too short for anything over three minutes, but really, there’s just too much to say. So, you get about ten minutes to learn what you need to learn.

Here’s the table of contents… I’ll add and update this over time to keep it current.

What If Your House Burned Down?

July 6th, 2017

On the Fourth of July we were at an our traditional friend gathering about half an hour away from our house. It was a great evening to see friends I hadn’t seen for a while, relax after almost a full day of working in the yard, and eat some good old picnic/bbq food.

One family was missing because the kids were sick. But plenty of people where there, and it was fun.

After it was dark and we were sitting around chatting about this-and-that, one of the ladies noticed something on her phone and said “Do you guys know any Nelsons? Their house burned down…” It was news from someone close, and based on how the message was sent, we should have all known them.

Turns out the Nelsons were actually the Nielsens…! The family that was supposed to be there with us!!  What happened?

Here’s the front of the house… this is the “good” side:

house_fire_front_2

Here’s the back of the house… you can see it was very serious from this view:

house_fire_back

We weren’t sure, but this started a flurry of activity that has been amazing to watch. First, and most important, everyone was safe… Mom, Dad, and the seven kids (yes, seven. We have big families in Utah), and the three dogs. People were mobilizing, figuring out how they could help, making calls, sending out word on social media, etc.

The people we were with are the heart of a huge youth simulation, involving hundreds and hundreds of volunteers (of which the Nielsen family is an integral part of), and these people are the coordinators.  To watch them get in their groove and think about the many details of how to help this family was really cool.

Before I switch to job search / career mode, let me ask you to please donate $5 or $10 or whatever you can (but seriously, all the small donations add up, so give something) to this family. They have insurance but it’s so early that we don’t know how that is going to play out. What we do know is that there are nine people who have immediate needs, and your $5 will be well-used.  Here’s the gofundme page. I’m hoping that their insurance experience is delightful… the stuff commercials are made of. But I’m not holding my breath.

Click this image to donate $5, or whatever you can.

nielsen_gofundme

So, how is this related to YOU?

Many of my JibberJobber users feel like their career has burned down… getting fired, laid off, or however they lost their job is very traumatic… one of the most traumatic life experiences that you can go through.  And in all seriousness, people lose their lives. Some lose their savings, their direction, their purpose, etc.

On the other hand, some people find themselves. They get a much-needed pause, and get to reevaluate their direction and thinking. They recalibrate. They find new, real friends who become a big part of their life moving forward. They find work that is more meaningful and fulfilling than they were in before, and whether they make more or less money, they feel like they have gotten a second chance.  The transition was a turning point that was hard to go through but was well worth it.

I hope that your experience is like the last paragraph… and turns out amazing.  But let’s go back to that initial transition.

If my house burns down I’ll rely on my insurance company to come through with their promises. I worked with my insurance agent to get the right insurance, the right amount, and the right deductible.  Then, I paid my bills… I did my part so I could have peace of mind for when tragedy strikes.

What are you doing for your career management, for when tragedy strikes? I’m guessing it’s more likely that you’ll go through an unwanted job loss than lose your house in a fire. Yet while we prepare for the house loss, we are not preparing for the job transition.  Perhaps that’s because it’s easier to just buy the right insurance than it is to manage our career the right way).

Some of the things we might do to prepare for a job loss include having a nurtured professional network. And now we know that doesn’t mean we have a huge network of super strong relationships (thank goodness). But we shouldn’t be hermits in our career management.

We might also have a resume readyish. It doesn’t have to be polished, but at least have an outline and format (of course, you can download that from the web). Maybe you have a list of career accomplishments that you might use to create your resume, or for networking conversations, or interviews.

You should have reasonable savings… I had $1,000 in the bank for emergencies… on the Saturday after my job loss my two cars were in the shop… and it cost $1,000. Cool to have the funds, but not cool to lose them all in one day, on cars :(

Look, we don’t know when tragedy will strike. But we can start to prepare. You don’t have to get all your savings now, or add 200 people to your network now… but start doing a little bit now. A little today, and a little tomorrow, etc., will add up, so that when you need to tap into it, it is there and ready.  And you feel like you are in a little bit of control during a very chaotic period.

Good luck to the Nielsens, as they rebuild their lives, and to each of you, as you deal with your own personal tragedies. We can do this… with your fortitude, and with your friends and neighbors and communities.  We will rebuild.

The Job Search and The Beekeeper #Vision and #Hope

July 3rd, 2017

This weekend my cousin came over to help me with my beehive. The good news is that he easily identified the solution to my problem. The not-so-good-news is that the solution is going to be kind of a big one… a bit costly and it will take a while.  But this will be an important measure in ensuring my bees live through the winter, which they apparently weren’t set up to do.

We suited up and I asked for a picture because many, many years ago, my grandpa was a beekeeper. If he were alive today, I’m sure he’d be thrilled to know that two of his grandkids, and two of his great-grandkids were beekeepers (to one degree or another :p).  Here’s that shot:

jason_beekeeper

I’m on the right. Can you tell that I have my glasses on? It’s hard to tell because of the black screen that’s around my head… the little black lines make it hard to see the black lines of my glasses.  I broke my ankle in January and it’s still not back to 100%, so I find myself looking down a lot when I walk, especially in my backyard, which is not flat:

jason_beekeeper_walking

In this picture we are walking from where we suited up to the “North Forty,” or the part of our backyard that is not landscaped (and is to the north). During this whole walk I alternated between looking down and forward… so I was on the right path, but also so I wouldn’t stumble.

As I did this my eyes had to adjust between what was a few feet away (the ground) to what was many dozens of feet away (towards the beehive). As my eyes adjusted again and again, sometimes they would get stuck focusing on the mesh netting of the beekeeper suit in front of me.

If my eyes stayed focused on the mesh netting I could see what was immediately in front of me, just inches away from my face, but everything else would be out of focus… the dip in the rocks where I might roll my ankle, or the path to get to the bees, and I might take a wrong turn.

I had to make sure I was focusing on the right thing so I didn’t get in trouble. I could be intrigued and focus on any of the three things my eyes went to (immediately below me, or the mesh, or far ahead of me), but I couldn’t stay focused on any one for too long.

Isn’t this just like the job search?

The mesh is like our immediate needs. It’s paying the bills this month. We can’t close our eyes and ignore that, or we’ll be kicked out, have our utilities shut down, or have bad stuff happen to our credit. We have to look at those and take care of those, but we can’t consume ourselves with those or else we might stumble, or get on the wrong path.

The ground below us is related to the very movements, or tactics, that we make or implement in our job search.  I had to put one foot in front of the other, in the right place, and not step where I might roll my ankle. I had to watch out for the dips and hills because my bad ankle is just not good enough to handle those well. In our job search we have tactics, even micro-tactics, that we have to pay attention to. How are we writing follow-up emails?  How are are leaving voice mails? How are we dressing when we go to network events? How are we doing the big things, and the little things?  You have to pay attention to these and do them with care and purpose.

The view far, far ahead, towards the beehive, is similar to our vision and hope for when we land a job.  Yes, we have to pay attention to immediate needs (bills), and to the tactics we employ, but we also have to know what we are looking for. When we stop looking to the future, when we lose (or give up) hope, we forget the why. The tactics become less meaningful, we don’t value ourselves correctly, and we shoot lower than we should. Having a vision, and having hope, helps us have spirit and purpose in all that we do. It helps us weather the very difficult lows (like rejections) in our job search, knowing that there is definitely, indeed, something better out there for us.

Saturday, when I was first experiencing all of this, I was thinking about how important it was to look out, past the mesh, and focus on the future, but as I’ve thought about it, I’ve realized that focusing on any of the three, at the right time, is what’s really important.  Don’t ignore one or two of these things because they are hard or uncomfortable… take care of all three.

Big Projects In The Queue

June 30th, 2017

I usually don’t blog about the stuff we are working on, but I’ll make an exception today.  Each of these things are exciting for various reason… and I I expect to see most of them released in the next four weeks (or earlier, depending on how they pass through QA).

Custom Fields Major Enhancement: Data Types

Sounds jargony, right? Here’s the result: when we allow you to put a data type on a custom field (or user defined field) that you create, you can do more with your data. For example, right now we don’t have an explicit type (so it’s just a default type)… you can put whatever you want in any custom field.  But it’s hard for us to order, or sort, that data. Why? Normal ordering is based on numeric or alphabetical values… A, then B, then C, etc.  But, when it comes to numbers, sometimes 10 comes before 2, and when it comes to time, 61 seconds is not the same as 1 minute and 1 second (as far as ordering goes).  Sure, we could write all kinds of logic to figure out all the different ways to order and sort non-(data-)typed data, but the right answer is to allow YOU to say “this is a date,” or “this is a phone number,” etc.

This project is massive as it touches a lot of different parts of JibberJobber: The add/edit pages (of Contacts, Companies, Jobs), the List Panels, the Detail Pages, etc.  And, because those pages have grown in features (like, in-line editing on the List Panels), there are a lot of places we need to touch.

Okay, that is my technical definition… trust me, this is going to allow you to do more with your data. This is almost ready for QA to test (or, as I say, beat up :))

Jobs Browser Plugin

It was finally the right time to have a developer to focus on a browser plugin that allows you to push a button and pull a job into JibberJobber. You can imagine this isn’t super simple… the formatting of a job on different websites is different enough that the logic is pretty complex.

But, we want to make it easier to get data into JibberJobber, and everyone likes the concept of one button to pull in a lot of data. Phase I of this project is in testing right now.

Coach Dashboard Gets Cleaner

Did you know that career coaches have access to a Coach Dashboard that allows them to interface and interact with their clients?  We’re giving this feature, which we’ve had in the system for over ten years, a much needed face-lift and enhancement. The first step is to clean up the language and modernize what this looks like. Then, the plan is to make the features for coaches richer, and more useful, so that they can have better communication and interaction with their clients.

New Logged-out Interface

It’s time to, again, simplify and clean up JibberJobber’s front page when you are logged out. We want to reduce the noise and make the page faster to load. This cleaning should help JibberJobber continue to grow for years to come.

There’s more we have in the works… any requests?

Fascinating Read from The Tipping Point on Relationship Strength

June 29th, 2017

I’m finally muscling my way through The Tipping Point. It’s an excellent concept but I’ve had a problem getting past the first forty or so pages. Last night, though, I started reading something totally relevant to us on page 53… this is where the “80% of jobs come from networking” quote comes from. Note that the “80%” has been convoluted over the last few decades, but the concept of networking in a job search is important.  What I read, and what I share below, is “the rest of the story,” and it’s fascinating.

There is a very good example of the way Connectors function in the work of the sociologist Mark Granovetter. In his classic 1974 study Getting a Job, Granovetter looked at several hundred professional and technical workers from the Boston suburb of Newton, interviewing them in some detail on their employment history. He found that 56 percent of those he talked to found their job through personal connection. Another 18.8 percent used formal means – advertisements, headhunters – and roughly 20 percent applied directly.

This much is not surprising; the best way to get in the door is through a personal contact. But, curiously, Granovetter found that of those personal connections, the majority were “weak ties.”  Of those who used a contact to find a job, only 16.7 percent saw that contact “often” – as they would if the contact were a good friend – and 55.6 percent saw their contact “rarely.” People weren’t getting their jobs through their friends. They were getting them through their acquaintances.

WOW! 

I thought I was just going to read a little bit of the history of the “80%” (or, from the book, more like 60%) “of jobs are found through networking.” Now I have a name, and the real stats, and the date of the study. But what blew my mind was the idea that the jobs were found from acquaintences.

In JibberJobber we have a ranking system where you can say you have a one star (or two star, up to five star) relationship with your network contact. My thought has always been that you want to nurture and strengthen relationships. Doesn’t that make sense? Meet someone, they start as a one star relationship (that is, the strength of your relationship), and then you get to know them better and they become a two star, then a three, etc.

But what Malcom Gladwell writes is that Granovetter discovered that new jobs were found not (as often) from the strong relationships, but from the weak relationships!

WHY?

Let’s go on… on page 54:

Why is this? Granovetter argues that it is because when it comes to finding out about new jobs – or, for that matter, new information, or new ideas – “weak ties” are always more important than strong ties. Your friends, after all, occupy the same world that you do. They might work with you, or live near you, and go to the same churches, schools, or parties. How much, then, would they know that you wouldn’t know?

You acquaintances, on the other hand, by definition occupy a very different world than you. They are much more likely to know something that you don’t. To capture this apparent paradox, Granovetter coined a marvelous phrase: the strength of the weak ties.

Acquaintances, in short, represent a source of social power, and the more acquaintances you have the more powerful you are.

Is your mind blown?

Did you realize that the “weak ties” in your network are actually a source of great power?

Will you look at your “weak ties” differently now?

Gladwell talks about two people who have an enormous amount of weak ties, and the power that they have enjoyed.  They are, of course, “connectors.” Being a connector, Gladwell argues, is part of their DNA… it’s who they are. It’s how they think. In Never Eat Alone, Keith Ferrazzi talks about “power connectors,” who are such because of their role in society: lawyers, real estate agents, etc. They meet people all the time because of what they do.

I’m excited! I’m encouraged to find more “weak ties!” Before, I had the notion that I have a responsibility to take a “weak tie” relationship and make it a “strong tie” relationship… but Gladwell (and Granovetter) have given me permission to see this differently.

Don’t be concerned that the weak tie relationship gives you more work, but realize that getting more weak tie relationships give you more (networking) power!  The more you have, the more “worlds” you have access to.

Mind blown. Now, go out and network differently than you have before!

Company Culture Matters More Than Some “Experts” Will Admit

June 28th, 2017

Last night a friend asked me for some advice. He was in a job interview for a sales role and, either after the interview or towards the end of the interview, the interviewer told him that his energy level was too low.

This was shocking to my friend. He is an excellent salesman, and pretty much always exceeds any quotas.

His question was: How do you respond to that? The first impression was already made… you can’t rewind. Plus, that’s his personality. High energy doesn’t always mean successful, even in sales.  And he has a track record that however he does it, he brings in the sales.

I don’t remember what my response was to him, last night. Right now, just writing this, my thoughts are “counter the claim (of low energy) with stats and facts. Let your past accomplishments tell your story.”

Yep. Good answer.  But that just came to me. For most of the day I’ve had a different thought: If the boss wants a high energy team, and you have a different style, then perhaps you aren’t a good cultural fit.

Trust me… as good as it might seem now, and as appealing it is to have that (or any) job, let this be a yellow flag that you look at and think “Hm… maybe the culture here is not going to work out.”

Years ago someone asked me about a huge career transition. He said that he didn’t care what the job was, or where it was… his main criteria was the amount of money they would pay. I should mention that this person, a Baby Boomer, has a level of loyalty that is awesome… for employers.

He ended up taking a job, for ten years, that was horrible. Yes, the pay was great… until after the first year, and they somehow figured out how to reduce his salary by 33%. Remember the loyalty thing? That’s why he stayed.  The job got worse and worse. The culture fit couldn’t have been more mismatched. This professional cared about people, building teams, empowering managers… but the owner cared about revenue and profit. Ten years of cultural mismatch had an impact on him.  He’s out of the situation now, and he’s a great guy, but I doubt he looks back at those ten years fondly.

Some experts say that company culture is non-existent. To them I say, you have never worked at a company that had a strong, great culture. I have, and it was amazing to witness.

Here’s what I know: when you are looking for jobs, make sure you weigh cultural fit just as much as you weigh salary and commute and benefits. If you don’t, you might be setting yourself up for an unhappy work environment… one that’s destined to point you in the direction of yet another job search.

Open Letter To Hiring Managers

June 23rd, 2017

Hi… candidate here.

Thanks for the opportunity to apply to a job at your company. And thanks for the invitation to interview with you. And thanks for the second invitation to interview with your team.  It was really quite fun… much more fun than applying to more jobs and not hearing back at all.  It was fun to talk about my skills, projects, background, experience, and be back in my comfort zone. It was fun to talk to professionals who have jobs and salaries and benefits and feel comfortable with their professional life.  It was fun to talk shop and feel like I could stay up with the conversation, even contribute.

I do have something I’d like to share with you, though. Some of the questions you asked were clearly based on some unfounded assumptions about me. I addressed those questions but I could tell from your body language that you already had created your own answer for me, and no matter what my answer was, you had already made judgement about me that I wasn’t going to be able to get around.

The whole process started to feel fake.  Why did you even bring me in? Why let me get this far?

The icing on the cake was the generic, soulless, impersonal “we’ve decided to go with someone else. We’ll keep your resume in our file…” rejection letter.

All the smiles, the warmth, the personal touch, and then BAM! Did I become the enemy?  Why go from personal and happy-to-see-me to “Ciao Prisoner two-four-six-oh-one!”?

I thought that perhaps we could have had a friendly, professional relationship. No, not BFFs. I’m not going to harass you, ask you to lunch too often, or even email you much. But if we met up at a networking meeting, I would come say hi and see how things are going. If I heard of something that would benefit you, I would want to share it with you. But that last goodbye showed me that really, I was just a number to you. None of the smiley stuff meant anything. You stopped caring about me, even though I was good enough to make it through a few interviews, once you picked one person (who will probably not be on your team in two years).

Oh well. I guess that’s the game. Pretend we are great buddies during this interview process, but if it doesn’t work out, then there’s an uncomfortable silent agreement between you and I that no, I’m not allowed to communicate with you. I certainly can’t ask you for feedback, which you won’t give.  I have to figure out that I, as a professional, just have to suck it up, pretend it never happened, and put on my best smile for the next interview. Fake, yes, but that’s the game. These are the rules you set up. And it sucks to be on this side.

I hope that when (not if) you are on this side you can see how stupid the rules are, and next time you are hiring, you can be humane and treat your “candidates” with dignity, even if you don’t choose to hire them.

I’m back to the search… signing off,

The Unchosen Candidate

I want to write paragraphs and paragraphs of why this is great for you, and why we came to this decision, and the history of our pricing changes, but really, all you need to know is that you are getting JibberJobber + the Video Library for a killer deal… about 75% off of the list price (which was $9.95/month for each of those)… now it’s only $60 for everything for a year.

One $60 upgrade gets you JibberJobber premium for a year and access to the entire video library (including LinkedIn for Job Seekers) for a year!

Please share this with your job search friends. This price will make it a lot easier for many more people to get in control of their careers and get closer to their dream job. More importantly, they’ll be prepared for the changes they’ll experience during the duration of their careers.

We’re here to empower YOU.  Take advantage of this new pricing and get everything we have to offer!
