Dear Friends:

There are gobs of new jobs posted on Andrew Hudson's Jobs List this week; and here at the home office, we are hearing daily from job seekers who have landed exciting new opportunities through AH Jobs List!

Remember: Use these job postings as prospects... don't just randomly apply to every job.  As you are customizing your resumes and cover letters, review each posting carefully and make sure you identify the key qualifications the employer is looking for. Successfully landing an interview means connecting your relevance (experience, skills, background, expertise accomplishments) to both the job description and to the qualifications the employer is seeking.

And also remember that job seeking is now a full-contact sport. Don't just passively send in your resume to the job posting. Research the company.  Look on LinkedIn for connections. Call friends who might know someone at the company. What about other networks that can give you advice or a referral to the company? Try to find any advantage you might have that will give you an edge in securing an interview and getting a job offer.

Good luck!


Getting to Hired! 

One of the most common difficulties among job seekers is understanding what employers want when they post a job.  Anyone who has ever hired a new employee starts off with a picture in their mind of what constitutes the ideal candidate for that particular position.  The job description offers a lot of clues (qualifications, years of experience, etc.) and that is where it's up to you to create the argument in your resume and cover letter as to why your skills are the most relevant to the job. Those who create that connection between the job posting and their relevant skills will have the most likely chance of getting an interview.

At a job interview, there are specific unwritten qualities that will differentiate you from your competition and give you an advantage in getting the job offer. Employers want to make sure that you have a passion for what you do, a strong desire to fill the open position and they also need to have confidence that you'd be a loyal and contributing member of their staff.  

How do you get there?

Of the hundreds of successful job seekers I’ve interviewed, the common strategies are this:

1.)    Research the company. Employers want to see you've taken the time to get to know them. It is imperative that you understand what they do, their challenges and goals and why they need someone with your skills. Research their industry and their competitors and most importantly, try to get a sense of their corporate culture. This is not only important for your interview, it's critical to understand to make sure that it is a company that fits YOUR values and is a place where you see yourself being happy.

2.)    Anticipate the questions that will be asked and prepare responses in advance. In every job posting, there are at least five things that you can easily determine will be asked at an interview to judge your fitness for the job. You need to bring with you to the interview specific anecdotes that outline your accomplishments, experiences, projects and skills that will connect your relevance to the specific job posting.

3.)     Turn a one-sided interview into a two-way conversation. Be prepared to ask questions so you can demonstrate your knowledge, your passion for your chosen career and to demonstrate how your skills will bring value to the company. Also use my bridging techniques to help lead you into your comfort areas when answering difficult questions.

4.)    Relax!  Successful job seekers have a rock solid confidence in what they bring to the table. They don’t have to pretend they are an arrogant 'jack-of-all trades' or on the flip side, appear as if they are desperately trying to fit themselves into skills and qualifications they simply don’t possess. Believe in yourself, in your abilities and the value you offer. Be prepared to discuss how your skills are relevant to the position and show how you would add value by discussing your past accomplishments and success.

Room 214 is a team of people dedicated to being remarkable. Focused on digital marketing since 2004, companies hire us to take their social and digital to the next level: from awareness and leads, to sales and advocacy.

Our mantra is “Creating Valuable Relationships.” Why? Because our greatest benefits come from the work and generosity we put into our relationships with clients, co-workers, partners and colleagues.

We believe in doing our best, serving others first, operating out of love instead of fear, impeccability of our word, being profitable, having fun, giving, karma, and being teachable while teaching others.

Room 214 has a position posted on AH Jobs List:

SEO Specialist with HTML & CSS Chops
Room 214
Boulder


Room 214 is a great agency for the individual that:
  • Likes working in an open environment both independently and as part of a team
  • Appreciates transparency from co-workers and owners
  • Is values-driven with respect to people and quality of work
  • Is interested in thinking like a business owner

Job Description:
Room 214 is seeking an individual who is technically minded—but also has exceptional communication, writing, and organizational skills.

This position is perfect for the individual who has:
  • 1-3 years experience in keyword research and search engine optimization techniques
  • 2-4 years experience with HTML and CSS experience (basic front-end web development)
  • The confidence to communicate recommendations about web content (even to the extent of being able to write some of it her/himself) - but also the humility and hunger to learn more
  • An interest in configuring and using Google Analytics
  • A desire to learn more about SEO, online marketing and great web content
  • An ability to make basic HTML and CSS updates to web pages
Important Note: This job is likely a far better fit if you are a web developer interested in learning SEO, than a "SEO enthusiast" with zero real web dev experience.

Nonprofit of the Week

 
Share Our Strength began in the basement of a row house on Capitol Hill in 1984, in response to the ‘84-‘85 famine in Ethiopia. Brother and sister Bill and Debbie Shore started the organization with the belief that everyone has a strength to share in the global fight against hunger and poverty, and that in these shared strengths lie sustainable solutions. Today we focus these strengths on making No Kid Hungry a reality in America.

We see a future where kids have access to the healthy food they need, every day. Kids will get a healthy breakfast every day at school so they’re ready to learn, and they won’t have to worry about how they’re going to eat when school is out for the summer when the safety net of school meals isn’t available to them. Rather than feeling the stress of food insecurity, kids will just be able to be, well, kids.
We’re working to end child hunger in America by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, government officials, business leaders, and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These partners work together, implementing solutions that break down the barriers that keep kids from healthy food.

Through its Cooking Matters program, the No Kid Hungry campaign educates and empowers low-income families to stretch their food budgets so their kids get healthy meals at home. Cooking Matters participants learn to shop strategically, use nutrition information to make healthier food choices, and cook delicious, affordable meals.

The No Kid Hungry campaign works to shine a national spotlight on the crisis of child hunger in America, creating a powerful movement of individuals committed to bold action. We build partnerships that enlist influential individuals in the cause and advocate policy changes needed to achieve our goals.

Share Our Strength has posted one position on AH Jobs List this week:

Colorado Director, No Kid Hungry
Share Our Strength
Denver


The Colorado Director is responsible for leading the planning and implementation of No Kid Hungry programming statewide, in accordance with national program guidelines, strategies and goals, with primary focus on Cooking Matters nutrition education programming. Since 1993, Cooking Matters has reached over 26,000 families in Colorado with 6-weeks courses and grocery tours and is currently operating programming in 45 counties across the state. In coordination with the National Partnership Operations Director and No Kid Hungry Campaign Senior Director, the Colorado Director will lead implementation of statewide Cooking Matters programing and work to increase access to child nutrition programs, fundraising to support the Colorado operating budget, and communications strategies to support programmatic goals and raise the profile of the of the No Kid Hungry campaign in Colorado.
