You’ll Actually Find Yourself By Creating Yourself

Top warning signs it’s time for a new job

One topic that all of us think about a ton is our career: Am I in the right job?  Am I doing what makes me excited?  Do I like where I work? Am I challenged? What would inspire to me to be more engaged? How do I tell that co-worker they have bad breath?  (Just checking to see if you’re paying attention)

These are common introspective questions all of us ask, and with over 70% of the US workforce not fully engaged at work, according to Gallup’s “State of the American Workplace” Report, you’re not alone in asking these questions.  

At GIYG.me, we help people connect their passion and purpose with a company culture that creates an “extraordinary fit” for both employees and employers. You want this and so does your employer.  So we eat, breathe, and live workplace engagement. We feel so strongly about this that we decided to dissect Gallup’s 68 page report to find 12 ridiculously simple questions that will tell you if “Get A New Job” should be #1 on your New Year’s Resolutions (even if you think resolutions are stupid!)

Is It Time For a New Job?

To find out, answer these 12 questions (take some time to think about it and write down your thoughts):

  1. Do I know what is expected of me at work?
  2. Do I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work to the best of my ability?
  3. Do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?
  4. In the last seven days, have I received recognition for doing good work?
  5. Does my supervisor and/or a leader seem to care about me as a person?
  6. Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
  7. Do my professional opinions seem to matter?
  8. Does my company’s mission make me feel like my work is important?
  9. Are my fellow employees committed to doing quality work?
  10. Do I have a best friend at work?
  11. In the last six months, has someone at work talked to me about my progress?
  12. In 2015, have I had opportunities to work and grow?

So how did you do?  How do you feel?  Happy? Content? Surprised?  P.O.’d?

If after answering these questions, you were looking for some type of objective insight telling you whether or not it’s time for a new job, it doesn’t exist.  What does exist, however, are YOUR answers to these questions and how YOU perceive them.  Only YOU know when it’s time for a new job.  This super simple yet ultra-revealing exercise, (which was conducted with over 250 million employees, within 195 countries and in 70 languages), is designed to help you DECIDE if you’re ready for a new opportunity.

You can certainly do some type of “weighted analysis,” for example, by saying if “I answered more than 5 questions (or whatever that number is for you) with a NO, then it’s time to find a new job.” But let’s just keep things simple (after all, the holidays are hectic enough).  If the majority of these questions sparked a negative emotion, than it’s probably time to start preparing your exit strategy.  

Companies are well aware of (and investing millions of dollars) in employee workplace engagement.  “We would love to know how each one of our team members would answer these questions.” shares Chuck Waygood, Director of Global Talent Acquisition at Hortonworks, a Santa Clara Hadoop Software Company.  “It would help us continue to shape our corporate culture.  When interviewing our candidates, we put a significant emphasis on cultural fit.  Next to a proven track record of success, it’s the most important element”  

When searching for your next opportunity, make sure you ask potential employers about their company culture, your potential team’s sub-culture and their overall cause or mission.  Aligning with an opportunity that matches your ideal culture and deeply rooted values will not only turn work into fun but skyrocket your career and most importantly, your happiness.

Are You “Stuck” at Your Job? Follow These 3 Tips to Get Your Groove Back 

Get In Your Groove

We all get stuck in our career. It’s inevitable that at some point we find ourselves stagnant, disappointed and unfilled.

Which have you experienced?

  • Staying too long in one position, place, or company
  • Feelings of boredom and meaninglessness with your work
  • You are outwardly successful but internally you feel unsatisfied
  • Working in an uncomfortable corporate culture that doesn’t suit you
  • Feeling like your area does not hold the types of opportunities that would make you happy
  • Or you are simply feeling negative because you’re so uninspired.
  • …so many more reasons to list.
Some people simply let themselves be defined by the situation and never recover. They spend time rationalizing the mediocre when they should be spending that same time creating the magnificent.
But stuck doesn’t have to be a negative thing. With the right perspective and a little inspiration, you can actually use it as the catalyst to unlock tremendous opportunity and motivation.
This is article is meant help those of you who want to get your groove back by making your career meaningful again.

Step 1 – Acknowledge your responsibilities  

This is numero uno for everyone when it comes to career choices. In almost all cases of career dissatisfaction, it’s totally your own fault. I know this might be a tough pill to swallow, but until you acknowledge this simple fact, nothing I, nor anyone else says moving forward, can help you.
Maybe you are scared to change your job for fear of the unknown or maybe you are simply holding on too long to that dead end career where you feel trapped. Maybe you did something, didn’t do something, or failed to realize something. Maybe you simply didn’t know what you wanted. All valid reasons to feel the way you feel.
Here’s the good news…there’s nothing wrong with you! Everyone faces a professional or personal lack of fulfillment at some point, because everyone makes mistakes, and not everybody knows what they want. The difference between someone who moves on and creates a positive career change in their life and someone who doesn’t is often the basic acknowledgement that I CAN and WILL change my life for the better.
Once you acknowledge your own accountability, forgive yourself. Then you can dust yourself off, stand tall and kick it back in gear.

Step 2 – Show (don’t tell) them you are the best 

Above all else, your resume should accomplish one thing: to show recruiters that you are the best candidate for the job.
The traditional resume, with every word meticulously crammed onto the page, always ends up looking identical to all the other candidates. Recruiters simply start by throwing out resumes they didn’t like, rather than selecting the ones they liked best.
There is a way to stand out from the noise. Graphical resumes effectively communicate what you’re all about in a few seconds, giving employers a reason to single out your resume as a good fit for the job.
GIYG.me is a great example of a tool that can help you to build a great graphical resume, highlighting things like your personality, core values and your ideal work culture.
Your likelihood of getting the job that leaves you feeling fulfilled goes way up when your resume is the best one the recruiter has seen all week.

Step 3 – Check off boxes 

Especially if you are looking for a more challenging job than the one you are currently stuck at, it’s important to “check off all the boxes” that recruiters expect you to have checked off.
Checking off boxes almost always includes having a properly filled in LinkedIn profile. If you haven’t been excited about work for a while, your LinkedIn profile may need to be updated with relevant info and connections.
Other boxes you may want to check off include a Twitter account, membership to relevant associations, any relevant certifications or courses (online courses are a great way to start working in a new field), or publishing articles in your field on industry blogs or journals.
Ask yourself, “in my new position or field of work, what do they expect?”

Now what?

Once you’re done taking action on these three tips, give yourself a big “high-five!” You are armed with a renewed attitude, a fresh presentation and a little momentum…the most important thing in creating change. Momentum is difficult to get, but easy to maintain.
This can be as easy as making one more connection or learning about one more prospective company each day. You just need to take small steps everyday towards your career change goals. Do this and you’ll soon be back in your groove. You got this…I’m rooting for you!

Your 2 Neglected Resume Items That Could Make You Unforgettable

Is it time for a new job?

It’s no secret that there is an epidemic of disengaging and unfulfilling work.
But most people would rather stay at their current jobs and suffer than actually go through the merciless job seeking process. I often hear job seekers saying: “There is so much competition and the process is so sterile. If only the company would just meet me…
Well, instead of hoping the perfect job will find you, as a former recruiter and current direct marketing business owner, I’m going to help you get one step closer to the “YES” pile by showing you the 2 most overlooked resume items companies are obsessed with…and how to use these items to make you unforgettable!

1.) Your Summary

Your summary is the perfect place to give recruiters and hiring managers a peek into who you are. You can use it to highlight your cultural fit or specific achievements and activities that are highly valued.
Here are 2 quick tips for crafting a great professional summary:
  1. Find four things which define you as a professional. Do you have proven successful sales record? Specific engineering capabilities or department management skills? Once you identify your core contributions as a professional, you can identify jobs or companies that highly value your unique skills.
  1. Be results oriented. Recruiters have way too many resumes to look at. In fact, they scan them in 3 seconds or less. Make their life easy, replace anecdotal evidence with organizational impact and objective results. Keep it short and simple, or your resume will end up in the trash bin.

Here are some examples:

“Project Manager with 15+ years’ experience specializing in public outreach, website development projects, and marketing campaigns. Leadership-focused, creative, and approaches client projects with a win-win perspective. Creator of award-winning marketing campaigns for corporate clients and products.”
“Retail industry sales manager who focuses on customer service, sales training, and deal negotiations. Long track record in advertising, product integration, and promotions. Proven track record of successfully developing strategies resulting in a 15% increase in new customers. Lives to create cohesive sales teams and to improve customer retention and happiness.”

2) Cultural Fit

So you’ve decided that your capabilities are a perfect fit for the job.  But wait, there’s something even more important.  Cultural fit.
Employees who don’t fit culturally are detrimental to an organization. And as a result, companies are starting to prioritize cultural fit.  AKA:  Values, Mission and Vision.  So here are two tips to make this shine through:
  1. Identify the company’s culture. Does the company you are applying for value hustle, fun, calmness, or any other personality attributes? Maybe they care about humane applications of medical testing or support causes to feed the hungry. Whatever the culture, it’s important that your values are aligned! You can research cultures through Glassdoor (although beware these can be a little subjective from disgruntled employees), Company “About Us” pages and once you get the interview, talk to current employees. They’re the real barometer.
  1. Show how you are a fit throughout your resume. Highlight projects that fit with your prospective company’s culture. If they value humanitarian work, then make sure to highlight a humanitarian project you’ve been involved with.  If they value extraordinary engineering accomplishments, brag about an accomplishment that a hiring manager would find impressive! There are even free tools like GIYG.me which helps you discover and present your core values, ideal work style and desired company culture in a unique infographic. This will catch a recruiter’s attention and provide a personality to go with the experience listed on your resume.

CONCLUSION

Don’t be discouraged in your job search, good applicants actually have the upper hand! It can cost a company 30-400% of an employee’s salary depending on experience to replace them.
In a 2015 survey by Deloitte, they found that more than 3,000 HR leaders worldwide consider retaining talent their most important objective.
Companies are starting to realize that if they find the best cultural fits, they will save money, get more productivity, and make more profit. Why? Because people who fit within the culture stay longer, work harder, and are more loyal.  If you aren’t finding job success now, don’t worry. Make a few changes to better represent the “real you” and show why you’ll be a great fit in a company’s culture.

Why Recruiters Are Obsessed with Your Core Values and Cultural Fit

Poor Cultural Fit Is Incredibly Costly – For Both Companies and Candidates

Turnover and disengagement can cost a company dearly. Hiring someone that’s a poor cultural fit for a company leads to higher turnover and disengagement, costing the organization 50-60% of the person’s annual salary, according to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRH). Unfortunately this problem is rampant, with over 68% of employees reporting being disengaged or actively disengaged, according to a recent Gallup poll. Millennials scored at the bottom of the list, with only 29% percent of them being engaged, as compared to 42% of traditionalists. This not only costs the companies money, but the impact on our overall economy is immense. Estimates of the cost of actively disengaged employees alone range from $450 to $550 billion per year. Not to mention that hating your job, or working with people that do, really really sucks.

Great Cultural Fit Is Incredibly Valuable

Companies are recognizing the fact that culture is important for the bottom line and working hard to improve their cultures and cultural fit of the employees that work there. Having a good team not only means having the right experience in the room, but having the right mix of human beings that will work well together. The benefits of having an engaged team are clear, and include:

  1. Hard Work: engaged employees are more than twice as likely to work late or “go the extra mile” to get things done. 96% of them say they always or almost always put their best foot forward and work their hardest at the office, compared to 71% of non-engaged workers.
  2. Happy Customers: customers of companies with engaged employees rate them 86% higher than companies with non-engaged employees.
  3. Lower Turnover: companies with engaged employees are 70% more effective at reducing turnover
  4. Finding Top Talent: companies with great cultures have a much easier time recruiting better talent,making a recruiter’s job much easier
  5. More Money: operating income if companies with engaged employees increased 19%, while operating income of companies with disengaged employees decreased 33%

 

Finding An Incredible Fit

Because of the reasons above, recruiters and hiring managers know that cultural fit is extremely important. But finding it in a pile of resumes can be tough. Here’s how job seekers can put their best fit forward:

  • Social media – expressing your interests, core values, and culture over social media is a great way to show future employers that you are right for the job – be sure to stay active and include links to your Twitter, LinkedIn, and others on your resume
  • Leverage Your Network – great people know great people. Engage with your network by attending meetups in person or online, and tell people you’re looking for a new opportunity (be specific). This will not only get the word out, but extend your network, putting you in contact with many people who know of opportunities that might not even be listed.
  • Express Yourself – to stand out today you need to take a proactive approach and express yourself in a unique way. GIYG.me is a free tool that uses your answers from a short survey to create an infographic with your core values, work styles, and desired company culture. This will catch a recruiter’s attention and provide a personality to go with the experience listed on your resume.

 

Above all stay positive, and get to know yourself in terms of core values, work style, desired team and company type. Knowing what you seek will make it much easier to find. Good luck!

JOB SEEKERS: Companies Are Being More Transparent. Why Aren’t You?

Transparency is becoming so critical that some of America’s top companies are investing millions in making their brand more transparent.  They have added unfiltered reviews to their own websites, hospitable comment sections on their blog posts and with 75% of job seekers stating that a company’s brand affects their decision to apply, companies are abruptly blowing up their old career and culture websites in favor of a full workplace expose’. 

Why All The Transparency? 

The world is attracted to truth

Facebook Live creates “real” interactions, Google Reviews provides satisfied (or dissatisfied) customers a platform for honest opinions about a product or service and Glassdoor has a “Unicorn” valuation based on the workplace transparency theory.

Let’s be honest (pardon the pun), we like people who are transparent, so naturally we like companies who are transparent, too. With transparency cultural trends at an all-time high, it’s no wonder that companies are taking this very seriously.

Transparency Impacts Recruiting

It’s no secret that a transparent workplace culture can have a dramatic impact on recruiting.  Job seekers want to know that the companies they’re applying to are not only open and honest about the things they do, but also that what they’re doing is something they, as individuals, can be proud of. 

On the other hand, a lack of transparency in the hiring process can be disastrous.  The cost of a bad hire is a setback to the entire organization. Not only does a bad hire negatively impact the reputation of the decision makers involved, it also is a significant cost to the company both in dollars and time spent training a new employee.

Not to mention, with 50% of the job force being dominated by millennials in 2020 and their “transparency expectation mindset”, companies are emphasizing a clear, concise, and highly communicative hiring process where applicants would be constantly aware of the validity of their candidacy throughout the process.

Job Seekers:  Why Aren’t You Being More Transparent?

So with company transparency at an all-time high, why aren’t candidates reciprocating? 

Well, for many of you, the whole application, interviewing and hiring process has always been a bit of a dance, if you will, where both you and the company put on your game faces and prepare yourselves to give each other a sales pitch.

As a business owner and interviewer myself, the dance has changed and it is no longer enough to impress companies with your non-authentic sales pitch. Your well-kept secrets are bound to reveal themselves and could actually benefit you in the long run if you’re honest.  An honest person is far more attractive to companies and when people can feel something isn’t right, they’re repelled from you.  Conversely, when you stand in the truth, you become the most powerful person you can be.  You’re highly attractive on so many levels.

3 Unique Ways to Safely Become More Transparent

So you agree that you want to be more transparent.  Well before you get an interview, you have to get noticed.   Here are 3 unique ways to become a more transparent candidate that recruiters will love. 

  1. Video Presentation – Lasting typically 60 seconds, a personal profile video is your shot to make the best first impression to an employer. A video resume lets the employer literally see you and hear your case (via your communication skills, personality and charisma) as the best candidate for the job – all before the interview takes place. However, like everything in cyberspace, video resumes will last forever on the Internet, so they should be produced with the utmost care, professionalism, and preparation.  
  2. Highlight Intangible Qualities – Recruiters find you because of your skills but they hire you because of your “fit.” Go beyond just your skills, education and experience by illuminating who you are. GIYG.me is a free tool that uses your answers from a short survey to create an infographic with your core values, work styles, and desired company culture. This will catch a recruiter’s attention and provide a personality to go with the experience listed on your resume. 
  3. Personal Websites – Although this can be time-consuming, somewhat difficult and potentially expensive, personal websites do provide a good platform to highlight key personal attributes. And with WIX, Squarespace or a WordPress Blog, even the most technically challenged job seekers can make this a reality.

 

In the spirit of full transparency, I dream of a day where the interview process feels almost like grabbing an adult beverage or cup of coffee together.  Both parties…open, honest and free.  After all, aren’t we both looking for a long term, equally equitable relationship?

3 Creative Steps To Get The “Real You” Noticed

Today’s interview process is fundamentally broken. I don’t know the “real you.”

I used to be a professional recruiter. Now I run my own business. In both scenarios…efficiency is critical and to me, knowing who you are and how you may “fit” in our culture is the most important hiring factor.

When you go to an interview, what do you do? You print out a Paleolithic paper resume and cover letter (maybe) and then sit down with the interviewer. You discuss your skills. You show where you’ve worked. You highlight what you’ve done then proudly spread your certifications out for inspection. You tell them the answers you think they want to hear and they brag about how great their company is.

Bottom line…They need employees and want to hire someone and you need a job and want to be that someone. You’ll feel each other out to a degree, but at the end of the day, its qualifications that get the job. You’re happy if you’re the one chosen.

Rinse and Repeat. Sound familiar?

But how happy is this marriage six months down the road? Not very. Ouch! You’re tired of being micromanaged by your boss, your co-workers are loud and distracting, and nobody refills the coffee pot when it’s empty. Your boss is equally frustrated that you don’t seem like a “team player.” Your co-workers think you’re standoffish. After 1-4 years, you leave, just like the majority of US workers.

Now, let’s pause the narrative. What went wrong? It’s simple: Another case of “Hired for Skill, Quit for Fit”(…or worse…fired for fit!)

Nobody had even the most cursory discussion about who you really are or how you may fit. Conversely, you didn’t take the time to dive into the company’s culture, your potential team’s sub-cultures or even request to hang out for a half day. You both didn’t learn a single thing about whether you would work well together and instead you let that whopping 90% of the iceberg turn into a several yearlong discovery process. During that time everybody was frustrated at the lack of fit and in the end, it was a costly endeavor for both parties.

Here are just some of the facts:

  • It takes 18 months’ worth of salary[1] to train a replacement.
  • Most unemployed job-seekers spend 3 months looking for work[2]

Both employers and employees are hemorrhaging hard-earned money trying to find the elusive “right fit,” over and over.

Now, let’s return to examine your co-workers: Your boss is a type-A personality that prefers over-communication. We could have known that up-front. Your co-workers are primarily extroverts who prioritize instant gratification. And you? You haven’t even done the work to know who you are in the office environment!

All of this conspires to create the US labor force we have today where 68% of people are disengaged in their work[3]. This catastrophic blindness to the soft-skills and workplace aptitudes that make up 90% of our career success leads to hiring results that are worse than random. Employers might have more success flipping a coin rather than relying on their intuition.

The process is simply stuck in the stone age: we’re making massive assumptions based on limited information and praying for success.

Let’s start being more transparent.

By discussing who you are and how you work best, candidly up-front, you save yourself years of headache…(And my time too!) All those nuanced personal preferences can help you avoid workplace dissatisfaction. You never have to wonder, “is it me?” and you never again have to experience “Monday-dread” or “Sunday Night Blues.”

Recruiters and hiring managers know that “fit” is extremely important. But finding it in a pile of resumes can be tough. Here’s a reminder from a previous post how you can put their best “fit” forward:

1. Be socially transparent  – expressing your interests, core values, and culture over social media is a great way to show future employers that you are right for the job – be sure to stay active and include links to your Twitter, LinkedIn, and others on your resume.

2. Network, network, network – great people know great people. Engage with your network by attending meetups in person or online, and tell people you’re looking for a new opportunity (be specific). This will not only get the word out, but extend your network, putting you in contact with many people who know of opportunities that might not even be listed.

3. Illuminate yourself
– to stand out today you need to take a proactive approach and express yourself in a unique way. Giyg.me uses your answers from a short survey to create an infographic with your core values, work styles, and desired company culture. This will catch a recruiter’s attention and provide a personality to go with the experience listed on your resume.

Why can’t a successful interview process feel like you’ve found a soul mate? Two parties, mutually agreeing that they WANT to be together for an equally equitable relationship? It’s about open and honest candor so that the next time you sign an offer letter, you can feel the stress melt away in knowing that it’s going to be the right-fit.

Satisfaction Showdown: Paycheck vs. Purpose!

Believe it or not, more people are choosing jobs that give them a sense of purpose over higher pay – and living happier lives because of it.

What’s More Important?

Let’s play a game…

The rules are VERY simple. You’ll be asked a question and all you have to do is blurt out the first answer that comes to mind.

Ready?

Set.

Go!

What’s most important to you, the money you are compensated for doing your job or purpose in the work you do?

Do you have your answer?

Ok, now keep reading…

If you’re like most people, the first thing that probably comes to mind is earning a good salary. After all, you have rent and a car payment, groceries to buy and probably a massive amount of student loans to pay. But at the end of the day, is chasing a paycheck REALLY going to make you happy?

If you’re like most people your age, the answer is probably not.

While there’s no denying that earning a good income is important (after all, how else can you take care of yourself?), over half of all working Americans are unhappy at work and are focused more on the financial gains afforded by their jobs than their actual job satisfaction. Research shows that happiness increases somewhat with income, but only up to a point (probably less than you think), at which people report no increase in happiness, or even decreases in happiness the more they make.

This can have devastating effects in the workplace since unhappy employees are less productive. But the consequences don’t stop there. Unhappiness at work can translate into weight gain, failed relationships and sleep deprivation, amongst a laundry list of other unpleasantries most people would rather avoid.

The Right Life Choice is the Right Career Choice

Did you grow up watching people you love hate their jobs? Did you have to listen to the constant complaining about a jerk boss, having to work over-time, not getting the time off that was requested or being passed over for a promotion?

If so, you know all too well what unhappiness at work looks like, which is why like many people your age, you’re probably interested in finding the “right fit” professionally instead of the “right paycheck amount.” You’re looking for satisfaction that goes beyond numbers at the end of the month. In fact, having purpose in the work you do – and being happy in the environment you’re doing it in – is likely the primary career motivator for you.

At the end of the day, the whole idea of “getting rich” as soon as possible isn’t as appealing as it used to be if misery is the byproduct. Instead, there’s a paradigm-shift taking place and job fulfillment is replacing financial security as priority number 1. You’re interested in how your work impacts the world instead of how it can advance your career. And for an organization to be a good fit, you’re just as concerned with that company’s triple bottom line (people, planet and profit) as you are about the salary. Working with a company that cares for both people and the environment is important to you, and rightfully so. It should be to the management team as well, since there’s tremendous benefit as it relates to productivity, loyalty and ingenuity.

Most people don’t enjoy working in a hostile work environment or in an office where morale is low – it’s about as depressing as going to a funeral. On the flipside, however, positive and upbeat work environments foster creativity, collaboration and an overall sense of “community” that is beneficial to both employee and employer.

Does that sound a little too good to be true? It’s not. In fact, research shows that something as simple as receiving praise for a job well-done can have the same emotional effect as a salary raise. Having a career that is both motivating and inspiring can directly affect your productivity and give you more confidence to achieve your goals.

Here at Giyg, we want to help you connect your purpose with your career so that you end up on a career path that will pay the bills while simultaneously affording you the opportunity to do something you truly love with an organization that shares the same core values that you do.

So what are you waiting for? Isn’t it time that YOU got your dream Giyg?
