Quantify Your Experiences On Your Resume

You are decreasing your chances of getting hired if you don’t “quantify” your experiences with numbers and percentages. A potential employer is interested in the exact size, scope and resources involved in projects you were a part of. It gives them a more comprehensive picture of your skills and experience level. So instead of using words such as “many” or “numerous” on your resume, use specific numbers. For example, state that you managed a multi-year project that involved 30+ people and the budget was $3 million. That is quantifying your work.

Other quantitative wording examples:

“I was a project manager on 100 projects.”

“Of those 100 projects, 95% of them were delivered on time, within budget and all deliverables were completed as requested.”

“The 5% not completed were due to cancellation of the project by re-direction of priorities and resources.”

These numbers will play to your benefit and help you get hired. So be specific!

Hiring Managers: Always promote your company during an interview.

It may sound obvious, but if you are a Hiring Manager you should always sell your company to the candidates you are interviewing.

Why?

Because candidates have a circle of friends and co-workers with the same skills and talents. When the candidate leaves, you of course hope they want the job they interviewed for. More importantly though, you want them to think highly of the entire company. Whether or not you end up offering them the job, that person will most likely share their thoughts about your orgainzation with others. And word-of-mouth referrals are one of the most powerful sourcing techniques in recruiting talent for jobs. Not to mention it is just good marketing to always portray your brand in a favorable light. So forge on with those interviews and make sure every candidate has a positive interview experience. If they leave loving your company, it will pay off in more ways than one!

Interview Like A Consultant

Consultative selling involves listening to the prospect or client’s needs and requirements and then matching your qualifications, skills, knowledge and abilities to those work-related demands. Consultants have the responsibility to make the match work, not the employer. In order to sell yourself, you must make it abundantly clear that you possess the talents to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the position, for that organization.

Great interviewers make the employer want more from you.

How? By raising points of mutual interest relating to the work assignment being discussed that you and the prospective employer can explore further. Like a consultant, come prepared with ideas that demonstrate your knowledge of the organization and how your experience and skills can better their organization’s strategy, planning, and performance. It will be your opportunity to leave them wanting more.

Would you complete a project in order to get a job?

Some interviews these days, especially those for a high level position, involve completing a work assignment before you even get the job. Potential employers may ask you to complete a project such as sharing how you would develop a strategy for designing and implementing a new internet function or application. So this begs the question, will you complete the work assignment or not? An interesting dilemma indeed. And only you can answer the question on whether you want to spend the effort and time to share your knowledge and expertise with a prospective employer.

Here are some tips to ponder, if and when this work assignment arises during the course of an interview:

  1. Showing your ability to address the central theme of the assignment can be the difference between getting hired or not.
  2. Never give away “all” your knowledge on any subject matter. Provide only enough to demonstrate that you have the knowledge, expertise and experience to deliver on the subject matter.
  3. Use solid presentation skills in your response as if you were a presenter at a conference.
  4. Present your understanding of solid project management methodologies in formulating your reply to the assignment.
  5. And, finally, keep your assignment short, concise and to the point. Don’t wander around the field.

Whether you decide to do the project or not, consider this possibility before the interview so you can reply with a well thought out answer. Good luck!

Job Seekers Need Business Cards Too

Whether you are employed and looking for a new job, or are currently unemployed and job searching, it’s important to have a business card. Business cards have long been used as “people connectors”. Cards are easy to hand out and give people a lasting snippet of who you are, long after a face-to-face meeting. They commonly include your skills and pertinent contact information. Because business cards play such an important role in networking, we recommend that all job seekers create and pass out a personalized business card. You can affordably and easily print a large quantity of cards at places like VistaPrint, OfficeMax and Staples.

You’ll want to include your name, title or career talents and current contact information – phone number, email address, social media links and a website if you have one. If you don’t have a current title, a general title can go in its place, such as IT Project Manager or HR Generalist Specializing in Employee Relations.

Carry your business cards with you at all times and pass them out to those in your network, as well as other appropriate people you come into contact with. Spread the wealth of who you are and what professional skills and talents you possess. Just remember, this is not a resume, so pare down the long list of bullets. Be concise and focused (but feel free to use the back if you need to). And possibly even add your photo for memorability.

Asking For The Job During An Interview

Should you or do you ask for the job during an interview? Our answers are yes and absolutely. Why spend the time and effort of interviewing and not ask for the job at the end? Employers want workers who are confident, eager and interested in their organization. Confidence comes with a solid understanding of your experience, knowledge, skills and talents. The exchange of information during an interview through questions and answers on various topics leads to an end point. And at that end point, the employer is asking themselves, “Is this candidate a good fit?” So why leave an interview without knowing. Just ask!

You do not want to appear arrogant or desperate, so tailor the wording so that it fits your style and then present the question in a professional and friendly manner. Here are a few ways you could ask for the job.

“During the interview we discussed many topics that address the skill requirements for the position. Are there any topics we have not discussed that we should, because I would like to know if I qualify for this job?”

“Do I fit all of the criteria for this position? If you think I’m qualified for this job, I’d love to accept your offer.”

“Thank you so much for your time. I feel my background makes me a good fit for this job. What are the next steps in the process?”

“ I’d really like to work with you and your team. Is there anything else you need from me to make this a reality?”

Be confident about your qualifications and ask for the job!

Networking Is King

Probably the #1 key to finding a job is utilizing “networking”. What is networking and how do you use it during your job search, and beyond in your career?

Networking is defined as the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, or institutions; specifically:  the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business.

On average, people know approximately 200 people. That is the number of invitees to a wedding or the number of signatures on a funeral registry. And the 200 people you know, know 200 other people in their own networks. That is a cool 40,000 people you have access to in your community of contacts. Somewhere within this large group of contacts there are bound to be a few people who can provide helpful career information. Or give you access to employment opportunities that you wouldn’t otherwise have.

To reap the benefits of networking, you must nurture your network base. Maintain strong relationships with people you come in contact with. Keep in touch with old friends and past co-workers. Don’t burn bridges. And most importantly, help others when you can and they in turn will be willing to help you when the time is right. Networking costs nothing, but the rewards can be priceless.

Managing your career versus looking for a job

There is a huge difference between the two. As career coaches we recommend that you don’t just look for a job. Recruiters and managers can spot the difference in a candidate for a position. They prefer someone who knows where their career is heading and needs an employer to give them the opportunities to meet their goals and objectives. Candidates who know what they are going to be doing in five years have a greater chance to win the job, and beat their competitors to the final three in the interview process.
