Selling into job leads

Editorial by Matt Bud from the March 19, 2019 Newsletter

Job leads can be a tremendous resource for you, even if you aren’t interested in them. I know it sounds silly, but although most job leads aren’t going to interest you for one reason or another, it can still pay to read them. The most obvious problem with specific job leads is that they aren’t in what you define as an acceptable geographic region. That said, job leads are targets. By taking each and every job lead that you find of interest, geography aside, printing it out and studying it, you can easily advance your job search.

Topic: “The Platinum Years Journey: Discover What’s Next?”

The Platinum Years Journey: Discover What’s Next? is an educational seminar developed by Paul Cronin, who is a partner with the Successful Transition Planning Institute (STPI).

As people consider late-career and retirement, there are not only financial concerns but also transitional questions with entering a new phase of life. “How will my identity change, if I leave my career or retire?” “How will I get mentally and emotionally prepared for this new phase of life?” “What changes should I expect when transitioning from being in my present career to being in something else, or even retiring?” (Note: this is NOT a financial planning workshop).

This seminar provides informative exercises to help answer those questions and more. Listen to funny and insightful lessons, as well as facts and figures on how baby boomers successfully and unsuccessfully transition from full time career to their "Platinum Years."

So come join us for an engaging and interactive discussion on what you need know as you enter your “Platinum Years!”

8:00 AM – 30 Second Member Introductions

Speaker bio:

Paul Cronin, Partner, Successful Transition Planning Institute
With over 25 years of sales, management, consulting and entrepreneurship, Paul Cronin brings a broad spectrum of professional experience to the Institute. His background includes being part of the team that grew Eden Toys, a small NY-based toy manufacturer, into $90 million dollar company. Over a 17 year span, he grew from trainee, to leading a telemarketing team, rep groups and senior sales representatives serving thousands of major US retailers including Carlton Cards, Borders Books and Music, Federated Department Stores, Talbot’s, Nordstrom and TJX Corp. Paul has been twice-bitten by the entrepreneurial bug. In 2001, he built and launched his first start-up, InfoStore Inc. – a company focused on aggregating point-of-sale data and developed market information. The company’s lifespan was cut short as a result of the post-9/11 fund-raising drought. Then, from 2004 to 2008, Paul acted as an investor, advisor and regional franchisor with Parmasters Golf Training Centers. He sold his stake in 2008 to focus on new opportunities. Since 2000, Paul has operated PFC Resources, a business acceleration consulting company focused on helping business owners expand new markets. Projects have included working with a leading toy manufacturer to penetrate the electronic learning aid market at Amazon, Costco, Kohls, and Hammacher-Schlemmer. Paul has also worked with manufacturers and educational software vendors to create new revenue streams and has developed lead generation programs for publishers, including sales training and analysis tools. Paul presented at the MIT Enterprise Forum as well as Northeastern University on issues of entrepreneurship, running a successful business and business networking. He is an avid golfer, and enjoys spending summers with his family on Cape Cod.

The objective of our meetings is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers, share job leads and develop networking opportunities.

Each attendee will get a chance to deliver their two-minute elevator speech, share recent successes and failures, present their networking requests, discuss their job search questions and any concerns they may be struggling with, and apprise the group of any new searches, requests, etc. that they have become aware of.

Please bring at least twenty-five copies of your “one pager”. This should provide your contact information at the top, followed by a brief overview of your background, and finally your target company list and a list of people you would like to meet. They should be handed out to the attendees just before you make your presentation, thus helping them to provide you with targeted assistance and advice.

Please have copies of your resume available to handout to those interested parties who may want to learn more about you or pass it on to individuals they think may be interested in talking to you. Also, bring a nametag to wear and a “name” tent card to place on the table in front of you.

Members of BENG and FEI are also invited to attend.

Agenda

Topic: “Effectively handling the most Critical Interview Questions” – Part 2

Speaker: Jim Ashworth, Partner with Joseph Michaels International

Presentation: In placing over 1,100 business professionals over the last 28 years, Jim has conducted and documented over 5,000 interview follow ups.

Very simply, he has learned that there are four areas of an interview that will determine which of typically 3 to 5 candidates will get hired.

He will explain why traditional answers don’t work and how to more effectively handle these questions. Jim plans to conduct multiple role plays so our guests can experience the differences and more positive outcomes.

East Bay Networking Group (EBNG) Breakfast Meeting

Our goal as a group is to help people evaluate their “Regular Full Time Opportunities” and go to market strategies. We discuss new technologies and work on the basics of how to refine your elevator pitch. What is working for you and what is not working for you?

As our facilitator Norbert Walz has said, “the best time to look for an opportunity is when you don’t need to”. So bring to the meeting your personal and business development goals and prepare to contribute and enjoy the difference a community can bring. (comment contributed by Steve Peterson)
