Is Hiring on the Rebound?
the gloomy news, economic and otherwise, there was a small bit of
positive data from the US Department of Labor that hints at a big hiring
pickup in the next few months.
Their monthly JOLTS report
tracks total job openings, and the most recent report (April 12, 2013)
indicated that the number of job postings in the public market has
increased by over 300 thousand in February compared to January.
This is the biggest increase in the past 15 months and
the second biggest in the past three years.This is big news since
the JOLTS report is a strong predictor of monthly hiring in the next

As the demand for talent increases, job-seekers will have an
easier time finding a job, with the talent hunters facing more
challenges.The source of hire survey
(see second graphic) we conducted a few weeks ago will help you get ready. When combined with other research
we’ve conducted over the years (including with LinkedIn
) some interesting ideas emerge:
- Around 60% of all jobs were filled either through an internal move
or via networking (Steps 1 and 2). These two steps result in the
creation of a “hidden” job market since the jobs are filled with people
somehow known to the company. Point: job-seekers can find twice as many
jobs in the hidden market by emphasizing networking as a job strategy.
- 78% of passive candidates found their positions in the hidden
market. The emphasis of these hiring decisions was on performance,
potential and creating a meaningful career opportunity. When hiring
decisions are made this way, performance is more predictable, job
satisfaction is higher, and turnover is far less.
- When the hiring manager has less direct knowledge of the person
being hired there is a natural tendency to over rely on skills and
experience for both screening and selection. As a result performance and
satisfaction are problematic and short-term factors like compensation,
economic need and location become the dominate factors in the
- Finding a job or a job-seeker in the public job market is a
high-tech impersonal activity. largely focused on weeding out people who
doesn’t possess the requisite skills and experiences. This is a bad
strategy when the demand for talent is greater than the supply.
presenting the idea that performance and potential should be the basis
for all hiring decisions whether the jobs are public or not.
super short synopsis:Job-seekers Ideas:
Spend 80% of your efforts networking since that’s how good people get good jobs.
Note to the cynics: networking is not nepotism, unless it is. It’s not
nepotism if the candidate is evaluated on his or her performance and
ability to do the job.
It is nepotism if the person is unfairly given
the job due to some connection. Regardless, networking helps you get to
the top of the resume stack.
So, every job-seeker in the world should
spend most of their time connecting with anyone who can give them a
2. Use the back door to bypass the gatekeepers.
A number of people surveyed found a job posting online, but rather than
applying directly found the name of the hiring manager and contacted
the person directly. On LinkedIn when you see a job-posting, you’ll all
see the names of people in your network who are connected to the person
who posted the job. The bigger your network, the more back doors you’ll
be able to stick your foot into.
3. Ask about the job.
Whether it’s a phone screen or a full interview, ask the interviewer to
describe the big challenges in the job, how people in the job spend
most of their time, and if there are any problems that need to be
addressed immediately. Then describe some of your accomplishments that
directly address these needs.
This is how you can get assessed on your
performance doing comparable work.
1. Create performance-based job descriptions
. Define success as a series of 5-6 performance objectives
rather than a list of “must have” skills and experiences. It’s much
better to say, “implement a make vs. buy cost trade-off system for all
sub-assemblies” rather than “the sub-assembly buyer must have 3-5 years
of procurement experience and strong analytical skills.”
3. Put compensation in the parking lot.
If you want to find and hire the 78% of passive candidates who found
their last job in the hidden market, don’t screen them on their skills
or their compensation. This is critical since these people are looking
for career moves, not lateral transfers. If these high demand people
start asking about compensation, suggest that if the job doesn’t
represent a career move it doesn’t matter what the salary is.
how you get everyone focused on performance, potential and opportunity.The
job market is rapidly changing. Job-seekers and talent hunters need to
change along with it. Surprisingly most are stuck in the past and
wondering why nothing works.
A funny Thing Happened to me On My Way to My Next Job
I was young in my first really important Marketing Job. In fact I had just been promoted to manager of Sales Promotion in the firm's Consumer Product's Division.
Control Your Anger!
The accounting department was giving me a hard time over every dime we spent, so I came into work one day and told the account exactly what I thought of him and the way he was harassing me in marketing. Warning, this type of confrontation rarely works out!
Not Too Funny at the Time it Happened!
(You see Marketing spends money and Accounting is pinching pennies to try not to spend money. To say the least, in most companies marketing and accounting are always in a cold war!
Just be for lunch my boss told me to be back early he wanted to talk
to me. I thought this must be about what I said to accounting that
morning. But when I got back from lunch everyone was is the boss's
office along with the accounting manager.
We were told
that the big guy in the corner office (our boss) was being promoted to
another Division in the company and the accountant (The one I have just
told that morning that he was a worthless piece of you know what) is the
That relationship was definitely starting
off on shaky ground at best. I never really did recover credibility
after that, so being young, I accepted a great offer to work for another good company and was on my way. I tried to play hardball and it backfired! I had no clout and had no idea how to play the game of office politics.
My mother used to say. "Now remember Michael you will always catch more flies with honey." Not sure flowers would have worked in this situation but you get the point.
I had learned my first big business lesson. Not only did I not start another war with accounting I went out of my way to get along. Believe me there were plenty of times I wanted to say something but you now how that little venture turned out.The sad thing is that I loved that job. To this day I wish I had not left.
If you want to work in a corporate environment. you need to learn to get along and pick your fights wisely. Every company has people in it that can become a thorn in your side. My advice is to take the matter to your boss and not put it in your own hands. Do your best to make friends; not enemies in the office.
Winning with Your Own Career Coach
Typically job seekers venture out on their own to find a new job with the least amount of effort and expense as possible. That is normal. You jump on Indeed, Monster or Career Builder and start sending out resumes.
Imagine as a job seeker that you had an NFL quality coach teaching you all you need to know about winning the Career Super Bowl.
That is how Career Coaching works.
Most recruiters will tell you that it's like pulling teeth to get a candidate to pay to get a decent looking resume. That's because very few job seekers really understand the effort and expertise required to find and land the really good jobs.
Finding yourself in the job market every 3-4 years is not going to get you in shape quickly enough to win the best jobs in the least time. If you can afford to learn as you go and show up like a rusty has been for a few months then have at it. You will have a lot of company trying get a great job on the cheap.
I have been a recruiter for over 8 yrs., so I can say this knowing it is true. Recruiters are paid by their client. (Your potential employer) to find them very specific talent to fill a need. They need qualified job seekers to keep their clients happy and to make a very good living when you are placed.
What most job seekers fail to understand is that the recruiters appears to be working for you, but as soon as you get turned down for a job or decide you want to keep looking, the recruiters disappears. Why? Because he or she does not have another job that fits your experience and the time and effort to go out and find a new client just for you is cost prohibitive. A good recruiter may pawn you off to another recruiter to help you and split the commission. You feel like you are starting over and in truth you are.
In real estate their are sellers agents and buyers agents. One represents the seller and the other represents the buyer. 95% of recruiters are like seller agents. But what you really need is a buyers agent. Someone who is in it for you and only you.
The problem is that it cost money to hire a good career coach and trainer. But now they work for you. They do not need to make a commission from an employer because you are paying them to find them the best job; not just the ones offered by their limited list of clients.
How much does it cost to get your own career coach. At the highest executive level I have seen fees of $25,000 on down for a mid level position. In most cases it is money well spent. You will save tons of wasted time. A good coach will get your resume done by a professional, he or she will tell you where to go, how to do it right, how to interview and win, how negotiate for the best deal and put you in touch with jobs you will never see and connections you will never have going solo on your own.
It becomes a question of can you afford it and do you want to make a long term investment now to advance your career faster and in the right direction. Let's face it everything is turned upside down. Unemployment and under employment is at record levels. 85% of college Grads find work but 15% spent all that time and money to end up living at home off of mom and Dad. Minorities have been hit extra hard in this weak job growth market.
A good coach is like the trainer that teaches you how to fly an airplane. The trainer takes your through ground school, stays by your side through flight training and for a fee, make sure you can take off, fly and land a plane in any situation safely. That is similar to what a career coach will do for you. Get you proper shape for the mission and make sure you land safely without killing your career.
We have just skimmed the tip of the iceberg. If you are serious about hiring a career coach you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask for Mike.
Not Everyone Can Multitask
Many jobs require that you are able to do many things all at the same time. For some it comes easy. Others, like myself, are terrible at it. Yet, I can take one task at a time and stay focused on it like a laser beam. Just don't ask me to walk and chew gum at the same time.
I mention this because you need to know yourself before jumping into a new job.
My experience is funny now that I look back on it, but it was a difficult lesson to learn at the time.
Our youngest son was working in sales for Verizon and doing really well. I was in-between jobs, so I asked him to get me an interview. He turned me down three times. Finally, I pulled out the Dad card and shamed him into talking to his boss to set up an interview for me. Everything up to that point went well and I got hired for the training class.
I should have known that when you are 20 years older than everyone else in the room, you may be in a young man's business. Boy was that the case!
Certainly cell phones and technology was better suited for the younger generation. But I thought I was on top of things. That was not the biggest issue.
My son told me this was going to be a problem for me. While I embraced technology, there was no comparison with the college grads who grew up with computers, video games and the like.
He also told me I would have to be able to multitask well and fast. I thought I could do it. I had no idea what I was about to take on. Not only did I have to know two separate computer systems running at the same time, I had to know all the phone inside and out, engage the customer, look up customer billing history, keep their kids from wrecking the store, figure out what phone and accessories they needed, fix phones, know where all the inventory was at and keep the store looking great among many other tasks that went on at the same time.
My brain was on overload. Remember I am a highly focused person who does one thing at a time very well. In the cell phone sales environment, I was so far out of my comfort zone, it was a disaster. My son was 100% right and I had to eat a lot of crow at the time.
I share this with you, because you need to figure your if the jobs you are looking at are honestly a good fit for your skills and personality. I would have loved to be a fighter pilot. I know now the plane would have crashed before take off with me at the controls.
Find what you do well and stick with it. That's some of are great engineers or accountants and others are highly creative in sales and marketing. Figure out before hand what you are really good at and point your career in that direction.
