Dear Friends:

The Value of Your Past as you Move into the Future

I don’t know how many of you saw this in the newspaper, but following the Denver Bronco’s playoff loss last week, the NFL made an announcement that all of the dozens of individual NFL records that Peyton Manning set during his career as an NFL quarterback would be voided and wiped from the record book and he was dropped for consideration from any future Hall of Fame nominations.

Apparently the rationale was that he really wasn’t that good.  His four interceptions during the Cincinnati game earlier this season was the tipping point that really got the NFL really thinking that it would be unfair to allow the records he set to remain on the books.  
 
Manning didn’t put up much of a fight.  

“Let’s face it.  Looking back at my recent Super Bowl loss, my lousy last half of the season and the loss to Baltimore in the playoffs indicates that I’m really a pretty terrible football player,” he said.  “Yeah, yeah, yeah… I threw more touchdowns than any other quarterback in history, I’ve been a Super Bowl MVP, I hold dozens of individual league records, but clearly I’m not that good if I’m still throwing interceptions and losing games.”

OK.  I’m joking.

But this is a serious challenge with job seekers who have difficulty taking ownership of the incredible value they bring to the table. Often, the challenge of finding a job has made them believe that their work history has no value or importance to employers.

Looking for a job is the time to claim ownership of who you are and the value you've represented to your employers in the past.  But more importantly it require you to connect the value you represent to the company where you are applying. Your accomplishments, education, skills, promotions, career trajectories, responsibilities, even your job titles are critical in getting the job offer and also are important in you negotiating the best employment package for yourself.

Another self defeating strategy I find job seekers do is discounting their value. "Well, yeah, I've set every sales record at my last three companies and have increased revenue 40% above my goal, but it was really nothing, I give credit to my team." or, "I started out as a mid-level manager and was promoted three times and am now Sr. Director of the Department, but really, I think anyone could have done it." 

Really???

Believe me, humility is okay in some situations, but this ‘aw shucks, it was nothing’ attitude doesn’t cut it in an interview. Of course you don’t want to arrogantly brag, but you don’t want to sound desperate either. The sweet spot is ABSOLUTE 100% CONFIDENCE. People will connect with your confidence because it is backed up by you describing your career history, your accomplishments and letting an employer know why you are qualified for the job. 

You must practice and get used to saying these things out loud.

Most every job interview will begin with the question, “So, can you tell us something about yourself?” This is the first and best opportunity to take control of the interview.  Immediately start making the connections from your past experiences and accomplishments and let them know how these things are valuable and differentiate you in a way that makes you the best candidate.

Speaking of Peyton Manning, I heard someone describing how the most winning athletes are the ones with the shortest memories. 

For example, Peyton Manning throws an interception or overthrows a pass.  He doesn’t go to the sidelines and wallow in the ‘what ifs’ or beat himself up.  He gets right back in there, shakes it off and concentrates on the next play.  He is confident in his talents as a quarterback to know that the next play is all that matters.

Tennis great Serena Williams will lose a game or even a set in a tennis match. She might scream at herself for three seconds.  But she forgets the negative taste of the point or the game, recalibrates, concentrates and strategizes with all of her amazing skills and talents to win the next point.

It's good advice for job seekers.  

Don’t dwell on not getting the job. Don’t beat yourself up because a company didn’t respond to your resume.   Maybe you are at a job that is not working out.  It happens!  None of this discounts your value, your experience, expertise, talents, skills, accomplishments, education....these things define WHO YOU ARE!

Scream for three seconds, learn something from it, recalibrate and move forward with the laser sharp concentration and confidence that makes you YOU.  Your skills, talents, accomplishments, personality and background, experiences, knowledge.... all those things that are valuable to an employer.

Continued good luck with your job search!

Imagine.

Imagine that, starting this year, you are only going to work at a job that you deserve for a company that deserves you.

Imagine a job that rewards you for your accomplishments. 

Imagine working for an organization with a culture of success, great leadership and opportunities for you to grow!

Imagine a job you look forward to going to every morning and leaving every day with a sense of accomplishment.

At one time in your life, you imagined this type of job - at one time in your life you saw this type of job as a reality.

The simple truth is YOU CAN STILL FIND THE JOB YOU WANT AND DESERVE!
 
If you are unemployed and looking for a new job or are currently employed but feel your career is kind of stalled; if you are looking to progress your career or to even reinvent yourself, I ask you to consider the following:
  • Are you frustrated in your current job?
  • Are you finding it difficult to get traction in your job search? 
  • Has it been a while since you've had to look for a job and are feeling a little confused and insecure about how to go about it?
     
  • Have you heard that 'networking' is critical to progressing your career, but aren't sure what that means or how to do it?
     
  • Are you sending out dozens of resumes and getting little if any response?
     
  • Do you often wonder what habits and routines successful job seekers follow to get hired?
     
  • Are you constantly thinking about what you would REALLY want to be doing in your career?
  • Do you have pangs of insecurity about your resume and cover letters?
  • Do you have a difficult time speaking with confidence about your accomplishments, your talents, skills and experiences? 
  • Do you need a boost of inspiration and motivation?
  • Do you know what really matters to corporate recruiters and how do you make your resume reach the top of the pile?
These are common questions and frustrations among job seekers and even currently-employed professionals who are simply looking to progress their careers.
