Call me a compulsive

Editorial by Matt Bud from the July 20, 2017 Newsletter

Over the course of any given week I have the great honor of reviewing well over 100 resumes. Honestly, no one should be allowed to have this much fun. As I page through the many approaches to presenting one’s credentials, I am frequently dismayed by the way that some of the most important information is presented. Let me start by saying that I hate most abbreviations. The reason is quite simple. I usually have to stop and puzzle through what the abbreviation means in this context. I am sure the author was quite clear, but I am often left scratching my head. I would rank educational credentials of great importance and I hope you do too. I don’t know if [ Read more… ]

Global Meetings
Chapter/SIGMeeting Date 
Princeton, NJ Jul 22, 2017

Time

8:30 AM to 10:45 AM

Location

PANERA Bread
510 Nassau Park Boulevard, Princeton, NJ 08540
(609) 514-1456 / phone

Please note that this is NOT the Panera Bread in downtown Princeton. It is the Panera bread near Wegmans.

Agenda

The FENG Princeton breakfasts are designed for members to get to know each other in a relaxed and informal setting. There is no agenda – this will give you time in a different forum to interact, receive individualized attention, and help each other.

Although the meeting is informal, here’s how we structure it:
• For the first 15 minutes, get your coffee and talk freely amongst yourselves.
• At 8:45, I will make a few announcements. I’ll ask if anyone has something they want to share with the group. Then, everyone will have a chance to say their elevator pitch (no more than 30 seconds, please).
o One of our attendees made the suggestion that everyone who attends should be a job lead or something else to share with the group. I encourage this but will not make a requirement. Anyone who wants to contribute something to the group can do so here.
• Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 8-10 people facilitated by a leader. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be done on a random basis which facilitates a good mix.
• Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his / her issues and how the group can help, job search problems / opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance. In order to facilitate the conversation, I often ask people:
> What is your competitive advantage?
> What do you do differently that marks you out from others?
> How do you provide value?
> What are you known for? What do you want to be known for in a couple of years’ time?

These are a bit like interview questions, but often I am trying to find the gold in your value proposition that might not be as clear to others as it is to you. (Questions taken from a newsletter article – Jan 21, 2014 – provided by Ken Witt, Raleigh FENG Chapter).
• Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:45 break.

August 3, 2017 – John Hadley – “Use of Storytelling to Get Hired” - Bethlehem Lutheran Church – Ridgewood, NJ

I hire for one reason and one reason only – because I believe you are going to produce the results relevant to me. You can tell me you will, and you can draw up a proposed work plan with facts and figures, but what is going to sell me the most effectively is the concise, compelling demonstration of relevant results you have produced in the past. And the more such case studies you can draw upon, the more believable you become.
• Can you give a “2 Minute Pitch” that’s compelling and leaves your interviewer anxious to hear more?
• Do you have concise, engaging results-oriented stories to back up every point you want to make during the interview?

Join us as Career Search Counselor John Hadley shows how to tell stories that are interesting, that flow and show the progression in your career, and that steer the interviewer to ask follow up questions that advance your candidacy. John will share key templates and demonstrations, and will give a change to practice, while providing the expert critique to sharpen the storytelling skills that can get you hired!

John Hadley is the principal at John Hadley Associates (www.JHACareers.com). He teaches job seekers strategies and skills that enable them to tap into the 'hidden' job market and find the best jobs now. He also works with professionals struggling to achieve the visibility that leads to great new opportunities at work. His Career Tips newsletter brings expert advice on marketing yourself to over 9,500 subscribers; find out more at www.JHACareers.com/Newsletter.htm.

Agenda

BREAKFAST MEETING: MONMOUTH/OCEAN Chapter in Freehold, NJ

- For the first 15 minutes, get your coffee and talk freely among yourselves.

- At 8:45, General announcements. If anyone has something they want to share with the group. Then, everyone will have a chance to say their elevator pitch (no more than 30 seconds, please).
Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 10 people with a facilitator for each group. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be based on mutual interest: financial services, consulting, manufacturing, accounting, etc..

- Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his/her issues and how the group can help, job search problems/opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance.

- Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:30 break.

I will update the attendance list for everyone who shows up. It will be available on the website for about a month.

PLEASE BRING: a name-tag, business cards, and copies of your marketing material.

DRESS: informal (jeans are fine)

Please note this is just a few blocks down the street from CentraState Hospital.

COST: This is an informal meeting. We will ask everyone to buy their own coffee and snack and join us at the biggest table we can find.

We look forward to seeing you.
