Why the Declaration of Independence Is SO Important

"Emma is from New Mexico Charlie loves seeing that Steve smiled in church. Thank you so much. I'm in high school and my friends think America's racist and awful. They're happy to have the time off for July 4th from their summer jobs and from their sports, but they tell me that America is an awful place and we need to turn it over, have a revolution. Can you please help me explain to my Friends why the Declaration of Independence is so important and what exactly happened that day. It's a great question. Emma from New Mexico. And I love speaking at Steve's mother man's church. So let's read it. July 4th, 1776. Now it took three days to actually finish the document. It's really July 2nd that we should be celebrating Independence Day. But they dated it July 4th for a reason. Now, we must understand the time in the circumstances before. The declaration was signed. That this was a bubbling up of many years of the British Empire that needed to pay off war debt. They need to be able to finance their country to raise taxes. And their colonies in India were totally ravaged by, let's just say imperialistic hubris. Went back to Britain, they need to try to finance to kind of basically bridge the revenue short gap. No one in on the aisle wanted to actually pay taxes. They said, let's go tax those colonists. Now remember, before the 1750s or 1760s came around, the first Europeans to come to America and the first Americans came right near 1620. Now, Nicole Hannah Jones makes a big deal out of this, we'll play some tape from Nicole Hannah Jones, the wannabe historian, who does nothing but basically is a, let's say, historical arsonist. To what is true and what is accurate in American history. Of course, there were the first colonies on the eastern seaboard, Jamestown being one of them, then of course the Mayflower got blown off course. That is the creation of the Mayflower compact, which then of course created the first experiment in self government in the new world. For over a 150 years,

Michael Pack and Eric Discuss the Humanity of Clarence Thomas

"Honestly, we're talking about clarence Thomas, just this man, so great. And what I think you just said, Michael, is that when you made this film and how people saw the film and I know if they read the book, it's going to be that much more in spades. You realize how likeable he is and how much sense he makes. And in a funny way, that's another thing that conservatives have done very poorly is to show the humanity of some of these figures. We're always about ideas and about well, you know, what about the life story? What about the backstory? What about your family? When you see the humanity of people, it's harder to demonize them. That is a very, very important point. You know, maybe all your study of the Holocaust Eric brings that even more strongly to mind. But that is really true. And people want to put clarence Thomas in a box. They want to, they want a caricature of them, but they also want to label him. And so in just the coverage of the jobs opinion, people want to say that the court took a stand against abortion, and abolished abortion. But they did not. They took a stand on that. That's a lie. It's a lie, but people are happy to speak lies just as they're happy to demonize and dehumanize other human beings. Now, by the way, folks, if you have to do that, that might be a hot tip that you're on the wrong side of an issue

"You've been on both sides of this scenario as a child you've been the victim of a school shooter. Now as a peace officer as a safety officer, you've dealt with active shooters. So you are the best qualified tell us in a compliment. What is your response to events like you valde or the one you live through? What are we not doing that we should be doing? We're not training enough. Our schools are a soft target and we need to do more with people they complain about, you know, we don't want our schools looking like prisons. And there's a way to do that without it. I mean, you worked at The White House. It's a beautiful, beautiful property. It doesn't look like a prison to me, but it's very hard to get on that campus and on that property. With our schools, we're not taking this into consideration. And I'm tired of the media jumping up and people calling for more gun control. You're never going to you're never going to rid society of evil. And that's the conclusion that I've come to. We need to do a better job in law enforcement with training. And equipping our police officers, we need to have police officers on campus. We need to have more police officers and more security personnel on campuses. We need to, you know, we need a funnel access to and from. And there's ways to do it. And again, our campuses are way too soft. I'm a firm believer of the gun is not the problem. The gun is the equalizer. And there are plenty of people that work in our school districts that have the training and the fortitude and the mindset to run towards evil when evil enters that campus and to engage that threat. And to keep that suspect or those suspects engage with these personnel rather than on our children, I tell the story of a friend of mine, Rick Moreno. Who served 30 plus years in law enforcement. And he and I were both sergeants together during his last 5

U.S. Army Recruitment Is Down 40%

"Numbers are so low. It's ridiculous and the army in particular, the numbers are down 40%. It's gotten to the point where some legislature are talking about drafting women for God's sakes, which is totally insane. I'll just say it flat out. I don't believe that women should be in combat. Think of what happens to man. Imagine how much worse that'll get with women and they're talking about allowing people with medical conditions asthma ADHD and whatever they got to do illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as young children and this is all because the DoD is trying to make an excuse. They're saying it's a tight job market. They're blaming the lockdowns, which Democrats imposed, by the way, but the truth of the matter is it's messaging and no one wants to serve under this particular president. That's the truth. So we are building an army, God forgive me of metrosexuals and this needs to stop the CRT, the DEI, the SEL training of our troops. I know there's some good ones in there. I know there's plenty of good ones, but I'm telling you the left is doing a number on our military and is absolutely a shame. It's a shame of what's happening to our military.

How Firefighting (and Funding) Have Evolved With Mauro Porcelli

"One of the things is, and I know you've had some experience in both a smaller service and the larger service. And I remember being a part of a volunteer, you know, department, we were smaller. We had a lot of hand me downs. I mean, this was the early 90s. And we'd go into schools and you'd have some of the bigger departments that had a few more extra things. And it was always that sort of big brother little brother kind of thing. Is that gotten better or is it still is that still out there amongst the fire world? So I can Florida around the Panhandle area. There's still a lot of rural fire departments that are still very small and volunteer. But Florida is just grown so much in the last 20 years. A lot of those departments are gone now. And now it's just most fire departments are just fully paid professional firemen that are working there. But the funding has increased. But the issue is any time there's any the wind blows the wrong way, elected officials want to cut the funding. Okay. Everybody wants to cut the funding into you need 9-1-1. They're like, well, you guys don't do anything. And I keep telling them, you don't want us to do anything. When I have to do something, somebody's dying or they're dead. So you don't want us to do anything. So the way we look at it, we're a cold spring. That's behind the glass. Break glass when needed, then the spring will go into action. And that's the way firefighters and cops are. It's the same thing with the military. They're parallels there. You don't want the military to do their job. If they are, somebody's getting killed. Okay? And we don't want

"John zamira. You were just making the point, which I've made in the past. If it were not for Donald Trump, roe V wade would have not been overturned. If it were not for Donald Trump, Kavanaugh would not have made it through, the nonsense, the evil lies that they put up against him. He would have been forced to withdraw his nomination even though these were totally unsupported lies. They would have said, well, it's the good of the country. That's what the Republican establishment, the rhinos, the so called moderates. That's what they exist for. They are surrender buckets. It is their job when the Democrats start cheating at basketball to lose gracefully to the globe products, like the Washington generals used to. It is the job of Republicans like George Bush and McCain and Romney and Adam kinzinger and Liz Cheney. Their job is to turn over our institutions and our power and our wealth in our country to our enemies in a gracious way. They are the Vichy government that Hitler put in charge of France. They are there to pretend to represent us and pretend to protect us while in fact enforcing the Nazis will on us and making us feel like they're on our side.

Former Firefighter Mauro Porcelli on the Value of Thick Skin

"You talk about having a thick skin. Now, somebody coming from politics and coming from Congress and by being out there all the time. Look, I get fake skin. I mean, that one's not. But talk about that a little bit in the real world out there that not everybody's looking to give you a mental health day. So let me talk about thanks, Ken. We as firefighters, we were totally destroyed and butchered at the firehouse level. You guys were destroying the butcher at the national level. The world stage. So no, you guys have way thicker skin than we do. So this is what happened. When you first joined the fire department and you get hired at the fire department. There is massive expectations for you to perform. And there should be. Here's the problem. The fire department doesn't give you a mechanism to be successful to meet those expectations. So what do I mean by that? And I brought this up to our training divisions and another chiefs. And so what are you talking about? Poor Shelley. We do train these guys. We teach them how to pull hose. We teach them how to run calls. We teach them how to innovate. We teach them how to do all these things. And how to put out fire. It's like, hey, chief, that's the easy part. I could train a monkey to do that. That's easy. You realize most people at the fire department, they get fired or written up, not from a lack of job performance. They all know how to do their job. And most of it, for most of them, do it great. They get fired for a bad attitude. They have a bad crappy attitude that they came into the fire department with. That's number one. Number two, the expectations are set so high. Like I said, we didn't give them a mechanism to perform. So that's why I said, you know what? I have to do my part. I want to do something to try to help these young kids

The Supreme Court Has One Job: Interpreting the Constitution

"Okay, so again, let's review folks. Their gutless. They admit sort of that, yeah, roe V wade is made up. And I think I want people to understand John how extraordinary that is because the Supreme Court has one job. It's to interpret the constitution in 73, they misinterpret the constitution, deliberately, which is an amazing thing. It's a power. Yeah, it's a coup d'etat by 5 lawyers as justice Scalia once said that the Democrats gave up on a menu with us too. The old fashioned way, like the equal rights amendment because it's hard and they'll fail. So they just decided to have the Supreme Court do it and be like a sitting constitutional convention, 5 guys ruling the country by decree. If you're not comfortable with that, you should be happy with the overturning of roe V wade. Regardless of how you feel about killing children for sexual convenience, even if you're for that. You should be happy that 5 guys are not running the country like it's a mafia family.

What Drew Mauro Porcelli to a Career as a Fireman?

"What was it that drew you to firefighting? I know you had some family experience, but what drew you to this lifestyle, which it really is a lifestyle. I just, I knew I did not want to work behind a desk. I knew I did not want to be at the corporate level. And do spreadsheets all day and conference calls all day that pretty much lead to nothing at the end of the day. This is a bunch of people getting together and want to hear themselves talk. I did not want that lifestyle. What I wanted was that I wanted that fast paced, very high action. The camaraderie, the brotherhood, that is what I wanted. That's what I was looking for. I knew I wasn't going to get rich from being a firefighter. I mean, hell, I was making $7 and 50 cents an hour. When I first started. And it was many, many years after that until we started getting some good raises. It was really after 9 11 is when we started getting some raises, but I was just drawn to that because I just love helping people and you know, it was a great job. I did it for 25 years. I would do it all over

"You talked earlier in the interview about your work nights as a family because his family and on are in the jets that we've had i know it's a real passion for you to get out there and help other people from the flying family. Get jobs and be recognized for all the great skills that the have to have had in order to be able to get a job flying with one of the world's leading airlines. What would you say to employers are. Just got off the phone. Before i spoke to you with a pilot who i've started a a very small forum where I'm trying to connect employers to pilots. employs open to the idea of giving pilots jobs and the open to the idea of doing work. That's offered so of credit a little. I guess it's a job sharing platform and what we're trying to do is get employees to contact us at at our jobs and tell us about the jobs that got and then we can digest. The skill sets required and then find the right people to give them those jobs for on the job. Say seixas do you have any advice for them. I mean you'll going out and having a go at starting your business. Did you ever see yourself as being an entrepreneur. What would you say to other people who aren't in the flying industry. I think it's hard to give advice for. I don't feel like i'm really in their opposition to give it a boss. However i think it's really if if if you want to do something you've just got to do it you can't you've got to feel the fear and do anyway. You've got to push through the barriers. You've got to move forward and stopping. The outcome of stopping is going nowhere. Well evy pushing forward while. You're trying that next thing. There's an opportunity. There's an opportunity that the dole may open. But if you stop there's no opportunity and i think that's probably one of those sort of things that were rattling around in the back of my head tomato to reflect on and think about which is giving up is not an option and yeah it's just you've got to keep kelly as as tough as it is..

"Honestly. So this person comes to you and you say go look at the jobs online and then that's it. Really if you're GONNA do that why here's what they're thinking they're thinking oh well, we'll go there and this person's going to advocate for me. They're gonNA put me for a recommendation they have a job for me. Okay. So if they're encouraging me to go to the website and look at the jobs They have one for me or they're gonNA advocate for me. Here we go back to setting adequate expectations ultimately by coaching or supporting other people. What you're trying to do is help them and by not doing things, you are not helping them we really want to encourage people don't ignore the request says they come in if you cannot help someone tell them you're not in a position to help as much as you might like to, at least they get resolution to their outright right but avoiding them or not responding to them is just plain rude and no response is still respond. So I would say avoid that. The upfront be gentle with them. If you cannot help, we recommend we're both open network irs we we will network with just about anybody because we understand the value of networking I have no idea if this total stranger comes and asks me to network what the mutual benefit may be I may want to ask some questions. The idea is if you cannot be honest about it, it's okay say yes. Whenever you can I know that there's people listening To this podcast that are so busy and they get so many requests every day that they they just can't possibly spend time with everybody. I. Get that and the philosophy that I've heard that I really like is due for one. What you wish you could do for many. So even though you're not meeting everybody pick one person maybe a week that you feel like, okay this is my one person and not that you're being charitable, you're being realistic. And, you're doing for them what you wish you could do for everybody something else that goes hand in hand with that is if you are getting the same request, say for instance, you work in HR and you're always getting the request. Hey, can I. Talk to you for advice about how to interview whatever if those are coming in consistently have some kind of response that you can copy and Paste that you are then providing them resource that can help them. Maybe you send send them a link to to job seekers radio DOT COM that way you're not ignoring them..

"That's helpful. I think it's also valuable to determine at least call out what may not be helpful for for you to do so they can avoid. Yes. So that you can avoid doing these things and potentially pointing this person in a position that's worse than when they came came to you excellent in the first one, I can think of is is asking somebody for a resume that you intend to do nothing with. Now. You're not. You're doing it intentionally are doing it to end the conversation because you don't want to have it or it's uncomfortable or you think this I just don't know what to do here. I agree. and. That goes beyond the interviewing and networking and all and one thing I learned years ago as I got started in the HR and learning and development space never ask a question that you're not prepared to do something with the answer. So by the same token, if you're going to ask for a resume and you're not going to do something with it, that is a big no, don't do that. Ask for it do something with it or don't ask for it. Yeah. I if they're looking for a job and they come to you and you ask for a resume, what they're thinking in their mind is you have a job for them or at least you're going to pass it to the person who does and that you're gonNA put your thumb on the scale or perhaps offer of recommendation or endorsement So just what they're thinking, that's what their mindset is. So when you're taking that resume without that, then you need to be clear why you're doing it and with that said, if you just say, well, send me your resume is there harm in in? Forwarding that to your hr department, this is something that I've run into with a number of people what what do I do with it since the jar it doesn't need to be soliciting a specific job or soliciting an interview for a specific job..

And that way it's not you and it's not damage some other third party that's doing that what what are they doing? What can they do to fail I? It's like a an Avatar. Now, living vicariously through third party but I but I can see how it'd be super valuable getting somebody unstuck. You have somebody that comes to you. They're stuck. This is a way to get them unstuck. The other side effect that happens is at some point you're going to start laughing because the IDs get a little bit silly Dick. They're still true they sound silly and so you're you're laughing about all these things that you are. You have to do to fail the the light that shines on what you can do get so much brighter I. IT'S A. Process that I've used a number of times. Now over the last couple of years, I find it to be helpful in some fashion every single time on top of that, you're probably looking at the possibility. If you're weld network that you could connect this person somebody else hotel in your network, it's just making sure I. Think the challenge had there's if this person is not displaying to you the best practices that are known for networking, you may be reluctant to do that..

That's something to think about now and and I'm sure as you through and listen to some of our podcast episodes. You're probably gonNA think of somebody that is going or is exhibiting some of these things that we're talking about and what I've gotten in the habit of in this is taken, some practice is actually reaching out to that person right when. I think about them if I have time if I'm in the middle of something that's different. I usually think of it as going to sleep at night or as I wake up at five in the morning. Yeah. Well, I mean not a good time to talk but that's a good time to say what I really need to reach out to this person. Follow up not from a position of self interest but from a position of you know, are you okay are you getting through this search? All right. There's gotta be somebody that you know that comes into your mind during the day or during our conversations on seekers radio that you should reach out to, and if it does you should yes. Yup I agree that in the habit of shooting people we talk. At. Don't should yourself you should do this I. I completely agree don't pass up the opportunities when somebody comes to mind and I'm not suggesting that there's some mystical aspect of this worse He's thinking of me on. It it's just don't lose that opportunity. Hey, you came to my mind today. How are you put yourself in that person's position? Doesn't it feel good when somebody calls you out of the blue and says, Hey, I was thinking about today how you doing right and then you can ask those questions what's going on for you right now what are you learning through this time?.

"The reason for me to get up at that morning. It was your turns. Able Yeah. Oxygen, so that somebody to take away from this, even though you may have anxiety in doubt and fear, and an uncertain t that doing something for someone else will yield positive results for you I know we were going to mention. Sit Not being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Doing something for other people can be the light in the tunnel. You're not looking at the end of the tunnel yet. You haven't turned that corner, but it turns out the light. It can make a huge difference by just getting involved in something that is not. Job Related. It's just getting up and doing something for other people. Yeah, the category, the never ending job search sometimes that that things just won't get better I think some of us that have suffered a reduction in force. Understand that right, we understand the doubt that comes with that. I also know that you can retrain your mind to say that every time I've had that situation I've gotten something better and for me. That's true now better means different things in each one of those situations sure and it may, it may be something you want it. That's better. It may be something you haven't considered. That is better, but it's better than you expected. I think that's a perfect and one of the ways you overcome. Doubt is looking for that. You look for what was better out of that situation while I'm no longer at this company. I don't have to deal with that a hole in in. In Finance or or whatever you know. Or the toxic right whatever that is, it's like if you start looking seeking out these positive things in a bad situation. That's when you Kinda. Doubt and you're able to do things that you didn't think were possible now. We also made out that anyone is hiring today. I hear this a lot that you know. We have the pandemic and all the unrest, and all these people laying off and is done employment in forever right when you start hearing the headlines you start thinking. Wow, is anyone hiring of the answer is yes. Everybody's I always assume right. My mindset mindset is everybody's hiring, so if I think that that I know there's opportunity especially at companies I'd. I'd love to work for so much of what we talk about. Really is nothing more than a mind game. It's dealing with what's going on between your own ears. So if that's what gets, you started the idea of everybody's hiring. Do it tell yourself everybody's hiring. The point is most of the time. It's true even if they don't have an open position that they've posted on indeed, there are many companies out there that can hire you if you get in front of them. The challenge is getting in front of them. But. It doesn't mean that they're not hiring and that's always been. The challenge has got is getting in front of the right people the right company at the right time. Is always been the challenge. And if you are getting in front of the right people at the right company, and it's the wrong time, the.

"They would just do that automatically for them I don't know if there was some back end system that did that or a bottle, or if it was actually people just typing these. These things in for you copy paste because all that is really to put your stuff in down in an ats applicant tracking system is data entry, so you're highly qualified. If you've done at least what fifty applications for data entry job, right? The idea was the tract everything when they applied and when they got responses and they they actually mapped out that people who meet somewhere between fifty I think it was fifty eight to ninety percent requirements that that range is what got interviews and people below fifty percent, or somewhere in that area were just as likely not to get an interview somebody who is ninety to ninety five per one hundred percent. And you think about that. If if this is a wishlist, somebody has all those skills they may be over qualified for the position, and so that may not get the attention I think it's important to remember that your skill set is unique to you. It does have value and finding the organization that values it will take some time effort. It's critically important to your happiness, and there's if you're of the opinion that it doesn't matter if I'm happy as long as they're happy. I will be. You, really need to be careful walking down that road. I've also heard that doubt that is in somebody's mind. I'm over qualified for that role, and that's kind of I. Think it different kind of out in that. If I apply for this thing, they're not going to ask me in. Because I'm overqualified. That's more of A. I. Don't know if that's EGO or Well, there's there. You know it's still the. Yeah there's fear involved in probably because those of us who have been in that situation where we applied for job that was lower than the one we left. Yes, we're over qualified for that job, but. The Way I actually landed lower position job was. By explaining why I was applying for it in the first place. That afforded me. I was in a time in my life when I didn't want the responsibility of managing a large team, and for good reason, all I needed was to have the conversation with them as to why it's a reasonable doubt that you would get as many interviews by being terribly overqualified, but that doesn't mean you won't get an interview. Networking going to help strengthen the ties to that. If you know somebody on the inside, who can let the the recruiter or hiring manager now? Hey, I know somebody who has overqualified this for this position, but it's actually what he's looking for. Networking is going to definitely benefit, and if you're at one end of the spectrum, Hey, I, don't have the skill to match that role so I'm not going to apply, but then the other end of that spectrum is I'm overqualified. GonNa apply anyway just so I can have an application, and then in both of those cases. You don't get an interview right so you may be a perfect fit for one of those roles. That's kind of in the middle. And you don't get the interview or you don't get any response. You get nothing ghosted. Call whatever you want our. Then it just kind of fans, the flames of doubt that you have the skills necessary to be successful in the marketplace now in pursuing things like education or certification or Gosh..

"We're talking about overcoming self doubt in your job search what I've found in recent times, is it? There's a lot of doubt in the marketplace. You have value. That's what I'm going to start with. You have value. It's just finding the place where you can use your that can use your value. Yes, and who will appreciate your value absolutely, so we're going to talk today about some top doubts and some solutions some things that you can do to resolve some of those doubts or mitigate them or worthy. Get your right, and that's that's where I wanted to start. Love the idea you have value find the place that acknowledges that appreciates at the same time. Understand that everyone has self downed everyone. Again if you have no fear, no doubt then the you may be disordered. The idea of self doubt is so universal that overcoming. Self doubt really is the key. It is not eliminating you won't. Recognizing learning to manage, it is a far greater more important skill, then trying to eliminate it because it's not going to happen. It may be evidence of empathy and compassion. Actually that you're downing doing something because it might impact somebody else that's great could be. Necessarily if we're talking your language right now and your job seeker listening to this session, or perhaps your energy job in your just unsure your next move, you might be dealing with things like you know. Do I meet these requirements of this role. Will the interviewers like me right will ever find a good job as good or bad as the last one I've had in, and can there be anything better. Maybe it's I'm current with 'em. Current with the job market are my sills valued right? You're questioning things then you're in the right place I would agree. You're in the right place. So the first one that we really think about here's job requirements and many of the people that I coach will look online postings right. They'll look at. Do An inventory as great analytical do. Because I work with a lot of analytical engineers that sorta chicken they they liked to deconstruct the job description and say do I fit? Do I not fit? AM? I? Interested? Am I not. Doubt right this. Look at that and say well. You Know I. Don't mean one hundred percent of the requirements so I'm not gonNA apply for that I'll tell you from an HR perspective job. Descriptions are wish in most cases now it's true that some companies will create the job description based on the person doing the job, so it's just listing out the things that this person is currently doing, and there's a reason for that and I'm not knocking that when they are then looking for the replacement, they will look at all of the things that that person. And then they want the next step up. However wonderful that person may have been, they still want the next one to be even greater, and so they're looking at this and and making everything sound Rosie remember that a job description is the wishlist with their posting it online. You were the one that came up with the study Do you remember where that there was a study done? Interestingly enough by a company that would make applications on behalf of candidates right so the?.

"We're talking about the art of being you in job. Search one of my favorite phrases that A colleague of mine says to me all the time. Is You be you? I'm sure most of us have heard that phrase did that come with the snap. No he he means it really very sincerely you can snap yes. Of course. He's he really means it. He wants people to be as authentic as possible. Because it's in learning. Who People really are that. We can then leverage their strengths. And that's one of his themes in his career is to to work with your strengths. When you're looking for something better at in a job search of any kind often feel like you have to change who you are to meet somebody else's expectation you have to Discount your strength. Sometimes because you feel like they may not be valid. And that's often what happens in people that I work with have been laid off from somewhere. They felt like they've been rejected. They're going into a situation. Where Jeez the stuff that I did must not be valuable so I need to reinvent myself and that might be true. You may want to reinvent yourself but if that's your choice great it may be but it isn't necessarily the truth and there's that element of well if this didn't work anymore then now. I have to fake it and and we hear this all the time. Fake it till you make it well that works but is it really sending the messages. You want to send if the message doesn't matter and you're faking it because you are learning how to do it better. That's definitely add approach can take. I don't discount that at all to your point if I suddenly feel like I have to change who I am in order to now be acceptable. That kind of faking. It is probably going to either backfire on you or it's not going to work at all people that are looking at indeed dot com or the job postings at a company They look at that job posting. Oh I can do that. I can do that. I can do this too and look at all these things that they can do without. I saying Is that really what I want to do? I really want to do that. Because if we look at everything based on just a capability model where we're checking all the boxes. We may end up. Disatisfied I don't know that that's a natural approach you know not to mention there's opportunities where you know what? I can't do that and I should probably take that job because I don't have a choice. If you don't have the ability or capacity financially or otherwise to say no yeah that that may be something to consider and don't discount the validity of that situation for those who are in it because if you're really feeling desperate because you're out of money or you're going to lose your home or whatever that that is those are very real concerns and I don't want people to feel like we're discounting that in in any fashion. There is still the sense of doing the things that bring you something that brings some enjoyment that keep you going and often those who are associated with our strengths. As we're looking at that we we think about ourselves. What is it that I'm good at going through that list? Oh Yeah I could do all these things. Would I enjoy doing them? In this scenario if there are things from my past what I enjoy doing them again bringing those skills back to the four answer is yes then by all means you know. Apply talk to them about that if you can get the interview. That's great if the answer is I would go back to do those things because I'm starting to feel desperate okay. There's a different approach that I would recommend than simply applying and trying to be somebody that you no longer are because that will be detrimental to you in the long run. Not Everybody is one hundred percent clear on their strengths or even what they look like or even how to communicate that to other people. We always recommend you look at some assessments but you can do a self reflective exercise just to remember the things that you enjoy you bring up a really good point is something that I want to suggest to our listeners. If you're going to do one of these assessments and I'm thinking for example strengths finder. It's one that I've used like it. It uncovers where an individual's strengths may be. It's providing suggestions and I really liked to set up a that. This book offers however getting the Book and getting it the report and just applying what it says about US specifically from the assessment in the book probably not enough I would recommend seeking out someone who is either certified as a trainer in that assessment or at least somebody with a lot of experience in using it in the workplace to get a bigger perspective other than what you've just glean from reading a book because it is going to be a little bit different for you than it was for the author so exactly what is written in the report or in the book is going to need to be more a little bit for it to be truly effective for you so I would recommend talking to those of us who are trained in. This can help you find the way to adapt it looking at things that whether it's one of those assessments or other activities that bring you energy that that really give you a morale boost. It is vital. You're doing these things so that you don't wear yourself into the ground and then wonder why you don't have any energy the morale come from remembering that you did something you did it. Well guess what you probably got paid too and so it's having those three components thinking. Yeah I did the thing. I enjoyed it and they paid me to do that. It was crazy and it may not have been one hundred percent of your job. But how do you increase the percentage of that in your in your work well and we just had the conversation about things? Not Being Permanent. You know. Your unemployment situation isn't going to last forever. Your poor employment situation is going to last forever. You're really good. Employment Situation isn't going to last forever. The idea then is if you're continuing to do things that bring you energy. You're going to keep those strengths sharp. Hopefully you're always working on projects to keep your skill set at the cutting edge however you wanted to define it up to date if you are in a situation where you have done these things and you did them really well and it felt really good. If your unemployment situation isn't going to last forever please keep doing the things you love doing because people will see that and hopefully hire you to do it again. It also would directly relate to your capacity to be resilient search. If you're seeking all the things that you enjoy and are good. At and often we see people fall down the networking or even doing the applications or or even. Their interview is so jaded because they're looking at all these things that they can do. And that's what the job requires but they're not inspired by it Enthused to go into that situation Going to impact your your capability or you're at least your ability to present yourself positively in the marketplace. The reason we encourage you to take a look at these things you've done that you enjoy is because that becomes part of who you are and that's what you'd present to people and when you do the interesting thing is people can feel it. It feels different when you present that to some sure. So look at those strengths. Lean into those strengths and communicate those strengths because often. That's what people want. There's also we've talked about this to the idea that when you're talking about something that brings you passionate results right that you're really excited about the do. Well you speak differently. You come alive you light up. Whatever phrase the person may use they are now seeing you in your best light that gives you the impression of confidence and that is what attracts people to you. I I think about the conversations. People have whether it's a political presentation you're at some conference or whatever and somebody gets up to speak whatever that may be a rally it's true on the corporate side as well when someone gets up to speak and they have that sense of being alive and passionate about what they're talking about and they are confident people are drawn to that. So if you're working on things that bring you that kind of energy and people are seeing you talking about it and they need something along those lines. You're far more likely to get the next conversation if you want to reinvent yourself. That's great I think that that can be very healthy. It can be very rewarding. Don't feel you have to in order to be somebody that you're not because that disconnect is actually going to be visible as well. You're not going to have the same sense of confidence or the same sense of of getting lit up by. You're going to come across differently and it's really easy to forget that you did those things and it was fun. It was positive. Sometimes you feel like you don't have permission to feel that way and if you've been in job search long enough and taken enough you know knocks to the Chin you know You know you start thinking okay. Well jeeze maybe I should do is just put in applications. There's no sense to this. Whole thing anyways. Why should I care? Well you don't care. Why should anybody else? That's so you should really not lean that Reggia in remembering and re presenting and taking a look at those successes over and over again and then when you go to interview. Stand up for yourself advocate for this thing that you enjoy doing and often if they need that thing. They're going to hire you to do it absolutely for those of our listeners. Who are really feeling down that they just are to beat up to make that kind of progress her to to stand up for themselves. I implore you to talk to people who will then help build you back up because you do bring value to the table. Your perspective is unique and someone needs now that sounds like a platitude but there is truth to that and if you need to go to the show notes to find out how to contact. Us contact us. We will help you with that. Because we know the value that unique perspectives bring to the workplace? And you just haven't found it yet that that's not uncommon. Many people are there but it also brings a bit of accountability back to you. Decide what you want what you want to do. Andrew you and I were talking about the the idea of a vanity project and some things that I'm currently working on. Are these really just vanity projects that make me feel good? What if they are they make me feel good? It's worth doing even though I haven't had necessarily the outcome of landing the next client in whom that ability or that activity may be part of what they do. I'm I'm really charged up because as I work on this it's starting conversations with other people who are of a like mind who are looking for the same kinds of results and now this feels good so it keeps me going. This is what happens in job. Search the longer it takes to find the right job the more you need these things that bring you that sense of joy and that's why we talk about always have a project in mind right something. It gives you something to talk about other than I'm looking for a job and really. The focused objective should have a number of components in is not all inclusive. But I would definitely be saying. This is the kind of work I want to do. This is the kind of organization I WANNA be in and then put name on that so for example I just need a Job. Is any focused objective. No it's a generality at best sure and so be more specific. I'd love to be a director of learning and development for sportswear manufacturer in Portland Oregon. Well I wonder how. Many of those could bio as a matter of fact a handful. There's a of those Barlett. Where at the idea is okay now? Now that doesn't mean that the objective can't change. Of course it probably will.

"Let's come up with a different set of place and see if these work that you've just rang a bell in my head with that were having conversations with one of my corporate clients specifically about deploying your people against their strengths because ultimately people are far more engaged when they're doing things that they're already good at or things that they're already passionate about so if you are adjusting those plays on the new guy strengths. And you're getting good results. Think about the morale boost. That has well. The same thing is going to be true in job. Search whether you're employed or not you are going to have a unique set of strengths. Your skills are going to be a little bit different from the person who's advice you're receiving. So how do you more the advice into something? That is actually going to employ your strengths. Because they're going to be different from everyone else that you're talking to It's not like you hang up your strengths and your weaknesses and everything in the closet to job search. You Know I. It's you have to look at part of the networking piece. Do you think your strengths will play two and the other parts. Maybe you don't leverage those as much right and Because I've seen a lot of people who are expressive and the networking is really easy for them. But the other person doesn't have a chance to talk. And that doesn't go anywhere until it. So we've talked exa- styles preferences really knowing your style preference or your strengths is going to help you do some of the things. So that's how I would morph it. I would say I'm GonNa more of this thing that you know. Networking is kind of a expressive right and External what they call it in extroverted extrovert. That's what it is if your personality is such that you're going to thrive in that environment by all means jump into it if you're going to be drained in that environment. I'm not sure it's a good idea to push yourself to part but this comes back to that mindset idea if you know your strength is not getting out and meeting fifteen people in one evening to push yourself to do that may be helpful to some degree to expect the same results as the person who thrives in that environment. I think that it's fair right. I don't think that's a fair expectation for you to set for yourself so instead if you're looking at the things that you're hearing from others and comparing what is their skill set. Where are they most comfortable? What is their style preference? Compared to mine I can do the things that we have in common based on our common strengths. And maybe not push myself as hard to do the that. I'm not strong at because if you're familiar with with strengths finder. You will understand that. You're not going to make the same kind of progress in those areas. That are not your string right so instead of setting yourself up for that kind of failure and then tearing yourself down because you didn't succeed how about shifting your mindset into focusing on the things that you do well and then you are strong where you are strong for as long as they're leading to the outcome desirable for Employment. Sure because there's a universal truth about employment that I'm aware of that. Nothing happens until you have an interview because that's the thing that immediately precedes offer. Typically okay how do you define the interview? How many there still some sort of measuring stick okay that they used to say okay? You're the right person. Here's the offer. Whatever that measuring stick is typically. It's interview and and so the truth is that an interview is a conversation dialogue. Yes and and the Nice thing about networking. It's a conversation. It's a dialogue so it's prep for an interview so now I've changed my mindset. Not that networking is this weird strange thing that I go and I try to convince you to put me in for a job right. I and I practice my interview Skill Sheriff Story Whilst Good Question Have Accommodate Times. Have we talked to people who tell us the story that they were having just a conversation? And it morphed into an interview. It doesn't happen as often as the formal interviews where a job opening has been posted. You go through the process but it does happen and these things happen for people who are open to them but that is a mindset. It's not about getting all the advice and something clicks necessarily. Sometimes that happens a Lotta Times. That happens that's not the story for everyone. The story that does work is that it is going to change. I need unfortunately even the good times don't last forever. The bad times don't last forever. You will find the job or a job that is going to be better than your current situation. Things will get better. It does get better and what I heard here. Today is a couple of things as a job seeker. Somebody that's even employed looking for something better always be tooling up on the job seeking cy agree and do some learning there. Find out how to write the great resume how to do a good interview. Always be tooling up on that side of things so that you never run into a position where we decide. I'm not gonNA take anymore advice because it's all up kiss right right. We're excited you know what this advice thing is not for me. I'm just going to do what I think is good which isn't bad but then. I'm not taking other new information. So then what if the market changes now? I'm in a bad position. So that's the first thing. The second thing is the mindset I would have for networking as a suggestion that you might want to run through your filter. Right is I want to identify an ideal and that is I wanna find an interview or a conversation that Morse into an interview. And I'm going to keep doing this thing until I find one of those and so that's Kinda like motivation to keep going. Which is something we're talking about here is keep going well. I'm going to keep going until I find that I'm coming back to a one of these conversations that we've mentioned before. Just how do you keep going when you haven't found it yet? There there comes a period when you get tired right. You've tried all the job search fatigue. Right take arrest. It's okay pending on how badly you need the the income that may determine how long the rest happens. Fine rests where you can so that you have the energy to keep going. Don't stop just because you're not getting traction doesn't mean you shouldn't keep trying to to to more this to do something a little bit differently but to keep using the advice that you've you've received so far it is going to be different dependent upon what level of position you've had in the past and what how much of that might be in your specific market. It's going to be a little different for everyone. What doesn't change is that? It is not permanent. And you have to keep going until you decide not to work anymore right right. If you're deploying where you could do that I guess you could but the idea is. Hey you know what even if I have something? That's good for me now. Does it mean it'll be good for me in five years? Oh that's learn to write or or even ten years and it's the people that I coach that have been in the same company for Twenty Twenty five thirty years that come out and are like I never thought this would happen to me right and I can just tell you when I see the look on their face. I don't want to see it out in anybody's face so I'll give you the free advice here. Take it for what? It's worth reading through your filter right as a suggestion. Don't ever think anything as permanent and always be looking not that you're looking to leave not that you don't WanNa stay at that. You're open to opportunities for market research. Think about blockbuster us what's that The video heavy right. Yeah no but your point. So there were all sorts of indicators suggest that the market was changing around them the employees who have been in any company for twenty five years if they're not doing the market research to see where the trends are going and whether or not they have the skills for the newer kind of work that's happening that's a gap and that's something that we talk about in my field about. Skilling up and making sure that people are ready with the skills that they are going to need for the next iteration of the job they currently have. These are things that everyone can be working on a constant level. Keep Looking. It isn't about getting out of your current job especially if you love your current job and you WanNa stay in it. Knowing what's out there will help you in your current job. It comes back to the idea of keep going. Keep doing the things that you you feel. You need to be doing to survive. What can you do a little bit.

It's part of a customer service training that I did many years ago and I still use this actually is the idea that the definition between delighting someone or disappointing them is simply defined as the gap between what is expected and what is delivered. We think a lot about those times in our job ob search when that we are disappointed in something whether it's disappointed in our cells for not performing in a certain way whether it's disappointed in the person who interviewed viewed us for not asking the kinds of questions that we were expecting not necessarily reacting to our responses. The way we were expecting the the problem is not in the behaviors whether our own or the other person's it really is about what it was our expectation going in and the second question that is were those expectations realistic. So that's what we want to talk about in today's conversation. It's really US wrestling with this. This idea of expectation frustration. Disappointment the different emotions that you're gonNA feel either in work or in your career career or in a job search. There's always hate to say it but there's always gonna be somebody who doesn't live up to your expectations. I found this when I first got into real estate and I had a list of all these people that I would call my good friends that said Oh well. I'm sorry. We can't transact real estate with you. My Funchal is a real tour or my cousin or my fifth wife from a previous marriage or something. You know whatever that lives in this thing but you know when it's like hang on a second here. I had this expectation because we have trust. You're gonNA help me or allow me to help you. And you think about that in the the employment situation how many of us have gotten into working at a job where we thought we were coming into one kind of environment and it turned out it was very different. It's it's important to recognize if someone has told me that we behave in a certain way here and in fact we don't that's not on me what I do with the new. The information is on me and I can set some expectations based on reality rather than what. I was hoping for being told that those are the things I should could be hoping for. There's there's responsibility on the other side of that. What I do with the information is ultimately completely within my control? So that's what we want to promote here is to create some reasonable expectations and not have them set so high that people are naturally going to come in underneath that. They're going to let let us down in some fashion. If someone tells me that we have a culture at this organization that is employee center. Can It's all about the employee experience. I think that's going to he great but knowing human nature my expectation is going to be a lot lower not so much to tell them how they are having problems with living their expectations. -tations as much as it is. Where do I really fit because that is going to set me up for success? Today's conversation really is going to be narrowed focused on networking working what we mean by expectations as relates to networking with people. which is something? We really advocate as an effective search method and all of the research supports. What's that at least the ones that I've read and really we're talking here about? What is the expectation and really wanting to get from my networking and is that accurate? And there's many different components in networking that we can talk about. The first one is the outcome. What is the appropriate outcome that we can expect from networking if we think about the Outcome that also is going to alleviate some of the fear that we have going into networking conversations whether that's an interview and Informational interview or just a basic doc. Never came conversation if we can look at. What are the outcomes we want? We have something to focus on. We're going to be less afraid of having the conversation if we know what we want out of. And you might have more than one expectation that actually offers you an opportunity to get some of your expectations met which will lower your fear and your apprehension regression and actually have walking away from networking a little more positive on what it means. We often come into these networking conversations with an expectation that the other people involved are also as open to it as we are and sometimes that doesn't happen. What do we do with that first of all the question that I ask I is is where my expectations appropriate were the outcomes that I had hoped for realistic in that situation? It may be a situation that I wouldn't know ahead of time. Fine I can learn from it. Okay so I went to this networking group and I'm just using this. As an example it was an association of people that do the kind of work that I do I went to the networking opportunities. Pretended that they offered and I did not get out of it what I was hoping for. Why not what was it that was a barrier was coming in with unreal- unrealistic expectations? Order did I maybe make a misstep as I started whatever that is. I'm not going to judge it. I'm just going to try to figure it out. Do The post mortem if you will. Because that's what you control troll. You don't control of that group or the other people or their reality or even their perception of reality what I control is me and if I can look inward hurt and say okay. I'm going to take responsibility. That may be part of the reason. I didn't get my expectations. Met is because it was some way I was looking at it case in point I just had a a inexperience recently. Talking with a fairly high level professional she is Vp within her organization. And I was helping to build a relationship relationship with her Not Personal all professional but the idea was I want to a network further into her part of her organization and so I was having this conversation and she had promised to get back to me a week later and she didn't. It was a week after that that she finally did and she gave me some critical feedback that did not feel feel-good she first of all expressed how highly she thought of me in the ways that we had worked together in the past and wanted to maintain that relationship so as she setting setting this up. I'm realizing there's something negative coming and eventually. She told me that I basically over shared some information with her that she didn't think was appropriate for that conversation and she wanted me to know not because she thought it was a bad person it quite the contrary she wanted me to know what had put her off so I had to you set aside the embarrassment that came from Matt and set aside myself judgment enough to recognize that she meant. Well she actually cared enough off to give me that feedback. Even though it did not feel good. The other thing that happened was afterwards after. I'm processing doing that. Post mortem were my expectations. -tations realistic did I do the right thing. And when I came up with was no I didn't do the right thing with her but that wasn't because of her. That was just because I misjudged the information she was looking for. I didn't validate it before I gave it to her. I have now had a learning experience from this I. I won't be as free to talk with her because not going to make the same assumptions about her. That I did before and I made this assumptions based on a mutual friend. Someone who had sent me up for the conversation in the first place and I based the expectation on what kind of conversation I would have had with my friend not with the networking contact. Here's an opportunity ready for us to think ahead about. What is the appropriate expectation for this specific opportunity and being an open person as I am? I share freely really. How do I dial that back to stay within the confines of their expectations and that would have led me some questions? About how candidate can I be. How great is it though to have that learning experience have somebody actually share it with you? Many people would just look at that. and not say any writing. And you Rollin doing the same thing and you what you're wondering why. Hey why. It's a really the thing that we're talking about here is. Are you okay with that. Are you okay with not having your expectations is met. Because some people can't cope with that kind of feedback or the silence. One of those who are going to drive them absolutely crazy. True true it takes practice practice. Don't get me wrong. It did not feel good. My initial reaction was one of being put off but I had to accept the fact once once I realized no. She's really trying to give me feedback because it will help me. I had to set aside those feelings of remorse or embarrassment or whatever in order to get the lesson out of it. That is a skill that is practiced. I don't know anyone who does that. Naturally I was coaching client recently. Where they went into a an interaction she had a set of beliefs about what networking should be and they weren't mirrored by the person she was meeting with because I had set her up for such success with these best practices that she was disappointed? That this other person didn't get it and that's where you know. Make sure that you understand what your the definition of networking might be is different than what the other person might think that it is and if you have enough time to ask these kinds of questions you can actually ask the other. A person with their expectations are especially. If you're the one requesting never can conversation with someone and so you meet and they say so. What do you want out of this conversation section? It is totally okay to turn that question back around after you answer of course then you ask them. What are you looking to get out of this conversation? This also sets you up for that mutual benefit situation that we were talking about in a prior. podcast if you have that mindset of mutual benefit by asking them what do you want out of this networking conversation conversation. You're now going to establish what those differences are so that the expectations are now shared. What we're learning here is that learning might be one one of the expectations? You should have love it from networking not only learn from that person but to learn about yourself the loop land how to be better at this craft. The other part of that is the other person may have the right intentions but they may not be as skilled as you are at executing them so we also have to be patient in the process for the the other person even if they're in a position where you'd think that they should know this not everybody does reciprocate is often one of the expectations. That people are looking for that. Hey if if I give you something. I'm expecting something back right. A give and take and sometimes that isn't mirrored and if your expectation is you're going to get something out of it and it doesn't doesn't happen if I come into our cain conversation with the idea that I am going to give not necessarily I'm going to receive. I'm going to give that's going to be my effort right here than I am not disappointed if I don't receive something not. Everyone has the same ability to reciprocate. Dave probably will try what they will do who is mirror to some degree as you're reading. What is happening in the moment if you're good at that if you're not this is something you'll want to practice in your networking conversations number sessions? If you're seeing what they're mirroring you can actually lean into that to gain greater trust and then maybe find that mutual benefit along the way really really the best way for me to get to that reciprocation. Moment is to make sure that I'm talking about us. We are looking at this conversation together. If I'm talking only about me what I expect what I want from you. Or what can I do for you. It changes when we shift the conversation to. What can we do together now? We find out what those mutual expectations are in a different way. It's important to remember also that this is not zero sum game. meaning that it's not every conversation is going to go as you planned. Not every person is gonNA reciprocate. Not every person is going to be free to give you information. Part of this process versus of networking is establishing a pool of people. That can actually offer you something and you can reciprocate in so. There's a symbiotic relationship if you will when we think about what we hope to get out of something. If we don't get it there is still something that we can learn. I've never been in a situation relation where there was nothing to gain from having had the conversation. Sometimes it's only the idea that I know that this is a path that is not going to bear fruit in in the short term and I might want to put off my next conversation with that person. That doesn't happen often. That's the worst case scenario. Never unless they are truly the type of person who is very difficult and I don't want to get to know them any further Usually it's okay. This isn't going to be where I put my time in energy and today but maybe in a couple of months I can circle back and see if there isn't some fertile ground there somewhere instead offering up my time to network with other people people when you go in with the expectation of giving as opposed to getting. You're much more likely to then get what you're expecting. And so this has been a positive experience experience for you and for them and can lead to another conversation brings me full circle back to real estate. I had a group of people that I thought were my good friends of trust and I expected them to do business with me. All that meant for me was they wanted to be friends. Yes they just didn't want to do business with me. An and yes..

"It's free and it's an e book that we put together a little while ago that we've found to be very helpful to people who who really want to look at networking and expanding their network. The big question we're talking about today is how do I know what job to apply for when I look at the multitude of positions that are out there. It's really hard hard to figure to pick and choose which ones to apply for because there are so many in fact when at the time were recording. This they're seven million postings on just on linked it alone. I've loved this question and I get asked this from time to time simply because people don't know how to do the job search. It's not that they don't know what job they want they do. They just haven't figured out how to get there but I always come back with the question. What kind of job do you WANNA do? What Work Inspires you? What motivates you? What makes you feel like? Wow I get to go to do this job today. Certainly there is a finite number of jobs that does that that for you so start there and then you can start doing searches either on Lincoln or elsewhere to find out what jobs do that kind of work and start exploring. It's often that I hear this question. Scott when someone is focused just on title and the title doesn't always translate relate to the type of work they WANNA DO Company to company. It's called something different exactly so that may that does make it more difficult. However if you're looking at the skills kills you want to use in different jobs it opens up more doors that way within your search first step that we both recommend we talked about this? A lot is is identifying your strengths. Right so finding the strengths I will allow you to find titles. And that's how I look I. I would encourage everybody on the podcast broadcasting listening determine what is it that you love to do more than anything professionally speaking. Of course. I like to play golf right. Take a walk. There are ways to even make that. What professional work? How would you do for example? Okay so you WanNa play you love playing golf and you like being around golfers you like the environment on on the golf course. You're probably not going to get into the ranks of professional golfers that are making a living especially those making millions just playing playing golf right but there are so many jobs at the at the golf courses or if you like retail those who sell golf equipment and supplies apparel and all these things there are so many auxiliary jobs or ancillary jobs that actually ty to your passion and I'd say that's a really good place to start if it's not retail that you WanNa do you know that's not your realm okay. What's the manufacturing side looking like How can you get involved with people who are making the products tour or designing the services that go around there walking the dog? I actually you have a friend. He had corporate job. He wasn't happy in it and then he had some health issues that took him out of the workforce for awhile when it was time to get back on his feet. He had healed field from the physical issues. He didn't want to go back to the career he had had before. He's now a professional dog walker. Is that a high paying job. No as you work through that and you're working up your network you can actually start targeting the kinds of clients that will pay you more and he is making a decent living doing it. There are ways that you can take what you're passionate about and make it into a job really quite directly. I heard something there that is really helpful full to me in probably a lot of people on the podcast. And that is determining what you love to do is one part of it determining how you like to do it or how you love executing on. That is something I think. A lot of people miss and so yes. I like to walk my dog but I like to do that in solitude while all. I'm listening to an audio book. Right and so part of that is okay now. I know how I like to deliver the the dog walk. That's just an example. Now you just opened up another other ideas so I love listening to audio books. Assuming that every audio book is narrated by the author. Do you have A voice that lends itself to recording audiobooks. And how could you make that a job so that you're you're actually helping other other people enjoy the same thing you enjoy. Is that a direct correlation. Maybe not you're still involved so there are all sorts of things that you can start to explore. Is that going to. It'd be a fulltime job. Who knows and who are who are the companies that do that kind of work right? There's actually I think a company in Ashland Oregon where they have the Shakespearean Festival estival. And what they do is when it's the offseason all of these actors these Shakespearean actors which have these really interesting voices. They actually narrate the dramatic matic version of a lot of different audiobooks. And then they sell those online. That's fantastic and I think you know. So thinking creatively sometimes is hard for people when they see the the carrot right there on Lincoln when they want to apply and they feel like they have to apply or they get into. I don't know what it is about social media I am. I'm sure they have people working. There used to work at casinos. I've seen this before. So the casinos actually have people that Do Psychological analysis on. How do you get people to spend more money in the consume and so then they create video poker in these different things to increase increase? Somebody's attention span for a long time on that thing and we know that social media does that those who provide it whether it's facebook or any of the others they're all trying to keep your attention longer and longer longer so he spent more time there presumably so that you buy more things through their advertising which sure okay yeah. We'll we'll set that part of the conversation aside. I think part of it has to be that instant gratification idea of. It's much more complicated rated than that sounds the idea is we need to get that job now. I need to be applying for those jobs. I need to be looking for the things that are actually going to get me somewhere and I don't have time time to think about the things that I love doing and why I love doing them and how I would do it. Well the way I look at that is this is your personal investment in your own career. If you're not taking the time to figure out why you love doing what you do why you would want to continue doing that as a career or a part of that within the job. If you're you're not figuring that out you're actually not setting yourself up to have a good interview when I can tell someone. This is why I want to work for you. Because you're going to be able to trigger all these things that I love doing. I as an employer will think I'd like to hire that person because they are already going to be satisfied just by taking this job. I don't have to convince them them of any of that. When we're talking about finding out your strengths? We're looking at those things that you do. Well that you enjoy doing one of the points I wanNa make on finding ending your strengths. There are actually books out there that will help you do that. One that I can't come up first with is strengths finder which some of our listeners know about about. Maybe there are others. Who Don't but every book that you buy in? It's not an expensive book. But everyone gives you a unique link to taking an assessment. I'm a big believer lever in personal assessments. That are validated and reliable valid in the sense that they are going to accomplish what they say they're going going to. They're going to measure whatever it. Is there a lot of them out there. Anything that is free. You have to remember you get which pay for but if you're paying for this book the chances are pretty good. That you're you're GONNA get a reliable assessment and I happen to feel very strongly positively towards the strengths finder. So you take the assessment. It tells you what your strengths are. Based on the way you took the assessment and then it actually talks about how you can utilize these strengths in your life. Presumably in your work if I I go into an interview and I've chosen something that I think is going to hang my triggers right based on my strength. I can talk to that hiring manager of the recruiter about the reasons why I want to work for that company in particular. Because as we've said in other podcasts you wanted to research you gotta figure out why this would would be a good fit. Because if you don't do do your homework then they're not going to take seriously if you know what your strengths are and you can speak intelligently about them. You're actually giving yourself a leg up as you're researching your strengths. Then you're also going to be able to correlate that with the jobs that you're looking for based on the the skills that those jobs say they're going to be using the you're looking at things from different perspectives. The Nice thing about strengths finder and the other one I recommended ended is a standout both have been influenced by Marcus Buckingham. And we'll put those in the show notes links to those. The thing I like about both of those does is it gives you a set of language you can use when you're talking to co workers or you're going to an interview or you're crafting your linked in profile or your put together a resume resume. Guess what you have a list of key words that describe who you are and I know that tailoring that language to a certain degree to the audience audience is a good idea. It gives you a starting point and the Nice thing about that is we often talk on this podcast about brand and the Nice thing about these different assessments commits. Is You get to overlay your skill with a little bit of this branding language like for me. My top strength is learner and analytical right right no figure learner analytical now can take the language that you you know you open the book and it has a whole bunch of things there. Does this describe you. And there's a whole page or more of things that describe you and it's like that's me that's me and there's a whole list of words you can grab and say. Yep that's the one that describes me. I now put that on my folder. My my certainly onto your catalog it somewhat sure and when you start putting these things in the resume that you have a Lincoln Lincoln and can actually do some of the research for are you because it's going to try to as long as you set up a job search function within the the site it now will match your resume based on those keywords to the jobs that come up. That's another way to bring into your news feed so to speak the different positions. That may be a good match for you. Then once we have the language these words so to speak we can make some choices sir. We can start prioritizing that list we can do keyword searches on that list. We can identify companies companies titles. We can identify people that are using the same language that describe me and we can reach out to them and have a good conversation. Why because it's likely we feel the same way or see the same perspective and add the same values so that would be a good conversation and if you're going to link with someone on unlinked that you don't know it's always a good way to start out by telling them why his if you use your desktop to to get into Lincoln you will be able to to find a way to send them a message you don't have to pay for it is just you can send a message that personalizes your connection request and you tell them?.

"We want to talk about advocating for satisfaction because so often we send out lots of applications. We we have some interviews and we're always trying to fit into what the company wants or what. The interviewer wants its natural right or want to to put our best foot forward. We WanNA make sure we're we're demonstrating to them or being considerate. There is a difference between changing how I appear and using their language. And so that's what we want to talk about today is how does how do we avoid changing who we are appearing to change who we are just to to succeed in an interview requires a lot of preparation. Sure does okay but if we look at how you're preparing now that requires a lot of preparation preparation of course because as they say it always takes a lot more energy to remember a lie because you have to wait the lie. It's much easier to remember truth because truth is the truth. Well it's on its own and you think about it if you're sending out a lot of applications in your tailoring every single bit of the language language to that are you going to remember when they actually get back to you two weeks later which set up oh my goodness which which version of this language am. I supposed to us now. We want to help you avoid that problem and instead to really advocate for your own satisfaction on the job satisfaction within the interview. You know what you want you know what you like. Hopefully and if not that's where your preparation is going to start. You know the kind of environment you want to be working in what your values are and again if not not find that out you should be looking for someone who meets your needs not just the other way around and you should know what feels like you and what doesn't so if you're using the right keywords to get through an automated system by all means go for it. Don't change who you are. Don't change your language to the extent that you're changing changing everything about your presentation just to meet somebody else's expectations authentic. Who Do you become when each time? You change that message to align with the job It's almost like you're a chameleon I've seen this have very negative repercussions sure. Psychologically we have identity confusion will not not only that but then you start to question when you see someone who is we say. They interviewed well. They were able to adapt to the interview. But then once they're on the job for a while their true colors show and that's true for all of us and so when they see that the person who shows up for work six months later isn't the person who had interviewed. But now we're wondering what's going on and that sets you up for failure on some level instead. What we're talking about here is when when you try to be all things to all people? You probably won't be very good for any of them and instead what we're looking for when when we are interviewing candidates ended its we're looking for the person who is the right fit but for whom we will also be a good fit and if you're really changing what you look like the way a chameleon would to meet all the criteria of your environment. You're not actually helping me as a recruiter to determine whether or not your the right candidate ended and whether or not we're the right company for you and that should come out in a dialogue even worse if you're applying over and over again to the same company each time time you're changing who you are and each time it's going to the same. Recruiter is not doing you any justice you feel worse. Why well because because they're now rejecting the crappy you right? You didn't even put the good you out there. And now they're rejecting the crappy you and how does that make you feel instead. What helps issue is for them to know how interested you are in working for them? That's something else you need to prepare for and to communicate at some point I I know when I have seen means someone apply to my company repeatedly and I get the message okay. This person wants to work here now. I'm going to read the cover letter if I hadn't before I will. Now why do you want to work here. That becomes a critical piece of information for that. Cover letter if there's a way to say it in the application so much the better. Here's an opportunity for me to actually see the same person showing up every time maybe tweaking a word here there to understand showing their understanding of the the needs for this role that actually would intrigue me now again. This is assuming it gets passed the automated system but even so I wanNA know why and so if I see that this person shows up completely differently in the three or four submissions. They've made I don't know which one is real. Well it's like somebody saying okay. I'm going to apply for this accounting counting job in this sales job and this completely different of assistant young like Oh my gosh. Are you qualify for any of them. I don't know I'm now confused and and frustrated with you as a candidate because I don't know where you fit as we go through this if I know what I want from my job I know what my skill set is and how how my skills can transfer to this company how I would make them available to them and use them on the job and I stick to that and I defend myself so to speak not meaning. Yeah I get defensive. But then I'm advocating Danda my value. Now they're getting here consistent message regardless of the positions I'm applying for and they can can have an idea of what to expect when they call in and then when you interview. Guess what it's coming from your heart right right because that's who you are it matters to you. Stick to your guns right B.. Who you are not what others want you to be brings up the question? How do I know if I'm doing it? Well well you feel it feels different and you you. Andrew have made the comment several times over the course of of these podcasts. About your personal brand when you are promoting your personal personal brand the value you bring to your work into your employer has a different feel you feel it. They feel it. And that's when things you start to click and don't think you're wrong if you don't have that yet it just means you haven't got it down yet and that makes perfect you some discovery. Ask yourself some questions. When do I feel most fulfilled the idea? We have a bunch of episodes on this. I'm sure you could go find them on. Branding yes we've done and how to identify gentrify those things the most important part of this concept though is when you feel your brand and you're talking about it with enthusiasm and passion and confidence that shines through now that doesn't guarantee you'll get the job but it does mean that you're having debt sincere moment. You're advocating for what you're looking for for and you are far more likely to land the job that will bring you satisfaction. I being that good at communicating when you get to the interview step into the shoes of the hiring team. Let's say they're going to interview six candidates. How many of those candidates do you think are trying to fit? Every single box walks on that requisition they're an auditor that's a strategy insurance. Of course what happens when you do exactly the same thing. Well I'm GonNa do it better. Okay let's hope but to me I'm thinking you're probably going to sound like all the others we're gonNA sound like parrots. I'm pleased to know that you have read. The job. Description internalized analyzed at. But what do you bring to the table. You're leaving that question. Let me go through my laundry. List of every fifteen minutes. I'm going to tell you how I fit every single piece so this job. Yeah of all of those fifteen things. What really motivates you? What gets you fired? All of it really right. See see how. That's a challenge orange. Yeah that you're you're now vulnerable because now each of those six candidates is selling the same story and you won't stand out you'll look exactly like a fool. Well well maybe not a fool you may be really still. It's the idea of know your brand be able to promote your brand to stick to that and to be enthusiastic about got it because that enthusiasm is contagious. And that can work for you on the job too. So this isn't just a conversation for the job seeker. Line okay. Even though there's this job seekers radio radio once you're on the job and you might be listening this because you're dissatisfied with the job you have sure and this is a way for you to say well wait a minute I do have have value. I do have strengths. I do have these things and you know what I need to have a conversation with my leadership. Whatever that looks like even if they're impotent that this is the stuff i WanNa do you sure and what's really interesting to watch that leader how they respond because if they're truly interested and and do everything they can to help you you? That's where the loyalty really starts right. But if they keep telling you know that's not going to work because and you can't get past that it may be that there's somebody else in your organization or somewhere else that you need to be talking to because it's possible that your leader is not going to be able to help you. That doesn't mean that your leader doesn't like you or doesn't care or doesn't see your value value. It simply means that that is not the person that's going to help you move forward. Don't waste your time with that person start networking within your organization to see where else you might be able to have that satisfaction and talked to those leaders who could bring you into it or look outside your organization to find the company that is going to value you when when we think about advocating for our own satisfaction too often. We are afraid to do that because of what we think. We're going to lose. When in fact by getting something we don't like like we lose a lot more? This is the litmus test actually for good leadership and what that means is if you share something like that with a good leader. They're going to be so happy that that you shared that with them because they can't read your mind they think you're completely satisfied unless they hear otherwise or worse they see your productivity or or quality. Ready go down because now you're entering more dangerous territory by giving them this information about what you're passionate about what you really want to be doing. They can help you figure throughout your roadmap to your satisfaction to your success without that. They can't help you if they refused to help you. For whatever reason. And we're not making a judgment Richmond if they refused to help you then. That's your cue that you need to take that conversation elsewhere. Be Confident in doing that. Let's do a little. What if what if if you advocated for this thing that you love doing and they say wow this is great? We need more of that. Well you might get that job okay. Okay and if you're working there you might get more that work. What if you stick to your guns in the interview? And that's exactly what they need. Don't be afraid to succeed succeed. Because that's what's going to happen is that you're going to demonstrate number one. You have energy you have a you're standing up for something that matters to you and it matters matters to them. Wow Wow that's interesting. It's an overlap. This is why networking is so valuable to by the way as you get to identify those things in advance. Maybe even create a position for yourself. Alf Love that highly valuable. So the secret for advocating for your own satisfaction starts with knowing what satisfies you too often..

"What, what my values are I need to make those really clear, but they are looking for someone who is going to match theirs in his human nature. We are all self driven. There is nothing. There's no judgment in that statement. We all have to answer the question. How does this affect me as we look at that as a valid concern? I can now answer that of the interviewer, these are my values and this is how I see my values aligning with yours. So the, my contribution is going to be furthering, your cultural values because if I don't make that connection and I just assumed they're going to make that I'm leaving that within their control. And then when I don't hear back from them. I don't know. I need to be interviewing the interviewer. I need to make sure that this is a good fit for me. As well as I'm being a good fit for them. It has to be a two way street. And it's interesting. You mention that because I'm seeing some evolution in certain companies on how they're interviewing people to eliminate bias in the process. They're actually having people that aren't in that group. Do the interviewing that's interest, which is really interesting. Right. So they wanna see a fit for role outside of the politics and the prejudice of that group. That's a really good good mindset. I, I just ran recently about a manager leader who has thrown the whole formatted interview out the window and instead he brainstorms with candidates. He brings them into room with a whiteboard hands than the pan and says, talk to me how you would approach solving this problem. He gives them a problem that actually existent one that they found a solution for. But how would you love this? Because now you're getting a really good idea of how this person thinks what their values are in terms of their contributions. And it gives you a really clear idea of what's it gonna be like to work with this person? And what I liked about that I wouldn't throw the whole structured interview out the window as he did the role. He was looking to fill actually that, that applied. I look at this as how can I add value to the interview process, because I want to know how that person works that person thinks how they approach a potential problem or something for which is solution is necessary if I know what my values are, and I can see them in this other person as the wheels are turning their head. I'm gonna get a truer version of that person than just the interview would show. Right. And that's really how we would establish whether or not we're qualified for role precise. Actually go through that interview process. Engage in the networking poll, your audience. I think what most people are struggling with when they say that question is do, I really wanna spend time to pursue something else for which I don't know whether or not in col-, right? Is maybe a heart issue that anything it's the heart issue. But there's also that group who may lack confidence, or they don't know how qualified, they actually are so going to the interview going through the process, and that can be a mock interview with, with a coach go through the interviewing process because you'll be surprised at what you actually can do. If you just allow yourself to do it just giving that story out of yourself and on paper or verbalised, or expressed, as you said earlier is really important and therapeutic process for you to determine if it's a hard thing or not. Well, and as I say, you light up that is what's going to get to hire you, you one hundred percent qualified and really difficult to work with. And I will I don't wanna hire you. I wanna hire the person who has fifty percent of the qualifications. The drive and the passion and the interest in the curiosity, and, and the positively to see them stretch. Yeah. Yeah. And I mean thinking about that as the hiring manager, if I could help someone Grosz that brings me joy as well. There's so much more to it. Don't not apply. Because you don't think you have the qualifications probably better than you think. Well, it's also not ignore Scott. The a number of the folks listening to this podcast might be different cultural backgrounds. Sure, what I found is some cultural backgrounds they don't feel worthy because they feel that they should have all the skills before they take on a job. I can appreciate that. I don't know how realistic that is because qualifications come with experience. So if you're not in a position, that's. Giving you the experience that you need in order to say you're qualified. I don't know how you can never get there. That's the catch twenty two but I do recognize acknowledged that there are especially in high context cultures that there are certain expectations that the culture says you shouldn't have to be told this, you should know this, and they're many cultures outside of the United States where that is absolutely true. I would never so admitting you're wrong or don't have an answer is not something, they're gonna say, right. Yeah, but there are ways to communicate that even. So you need experience in order to say you're qualified. And so maybe there's a different way to approach that whether that's through apprenticeships or through a strength assignment or riot project. Whenever that might look like I will tell you in those high context cultures. There's also the belief that it is our role as individuals to help other succeed that transcends all. Cultures. If you take that mindset that I am going to help the person who is least qualified to become qualified. I will still higher that least qualified person. So there is a way to do it, regardless of culture, I can't tell you what's going to be right for you. Self limiting behavior limits. Only yourself. I really appreciate that Scott because I think what I'd hearing from you to is that the soft skills. The ones you overlook might be the ones that actually get you the job, even though you feel in your heart or your mind or whatever that you're tangible technical skills. Your direct transferable skills may not be up to snuff if you have these soft skills, good attitude, hard-working, write these things that are just not measurable on a job description or resume offering that you have a higher probability of getting that I would agree because. You can demonstrate that in the interview whether or not they have you go through the motions of doing the job. And I know there are some jobs where they actually take you through test environment of some fashion, you know, and that, that's fine. That's probably very important for those roles so many of them don't, and you have the opportunity to demonstrate those soft skills, and some technical skills, where you are captivating, their interests. That's the sweet spot. Because now you have an ability to show them how you work. How you think how what drives you and you can establish your contribution to their organization in that moment? Don't think that you're not qualified for a role. That's the first step, this step second step is then to find what kinds of jobs, you are qualified for and that process can be a little more pragmatic, I think, is that once you start cataloging all your. Strengths all your skills. All things you enjoy doing leaving out the stuff that soul-sucking, right. Right. We talked about that on the dream job podcast just before this one. But the idea being that by knowing what that is, you have a chance, then to go find it. Go ask people, they're doing that kind of work. How did they get? There was their career path. What advice would they have for you? You're working on a project, right? We talked about all these components that surround this on every single podcast episode that we've done and often were just trying to position it in a different way, so that we can help you as a listener. Get there actually have success in this process. I do think that it's important to be authentic and what you're doing if you really don't know what your next steps to be, or you're lost in, in your search this time to either turn to your network or get a job coach and help. To make the decisions on how to take the next step. It's not that anybody's going to tell you what steps to take. But you may meet some encouragement in choosing one and taking it. And whatever that looks like I just just do it. Well, in the one tool that you might want to rely on is the networking at any and many people just don't know how to do the networking piece. The good news is, we have a free resource for that. We sure do it's called the Nazi of networking conversation. And you can download that on our website for free. You're welcome moved on that just for you just for you. Scott nine put that together. It's a free.

"I made to you was not worthy. You're letting other people write the story. Follow up is going to serve you. Well, every single time it is necessary to know, whether or not your efforts have actually landed if you just let things lie. By then maybe you'll see something good. Maybe you won't. But you won't know what effect you actually had. And when that happens. I know personally if someone is working with me, and they just disappear. I think less of that individual not, you know, on a human level. I'm they still deserve happiness. Do I really want to invest in that happiness? Why don't forget to follow up all ways follow whatever that looks like just make sure you do it. Right. You know, a phone call an Email, a thank you card, whatever that looks like just do it. And don't let how long does it take to send? It doesn't take anything. Right. If you have the Email address for heaven's sake. Send them. Thank you that brings us to the next mistake to avoid which is demanding employment. Not uncommon that people came to me through all line posting, right? They see a job that's posted. They see I'm working at the company and the go full court press on me saying, hey. Can you put me in for this job? Can you recommend me for this job, can please? Please, please. Yes. Now, if it's a really good friend of mine than of known for a long time that I trust could do this job. Well, that's okay. That person has already established the trust. If he or she were to come to me and say, hey, I saw this at your company can you please put into good word. Of course. I'm going to most of the time these kinds of requests come in to people that may be I talked to three years ago. And we connect on Lincoln. I'm not going to feel as comfortable with that. Now. I may say, yes, I'll introduce you to the recruiter, but I'm not going to feel as comfortable giving recommendation about you. If I can't make a credible recommendation. The demand of employment may not be give me this job. If I'm at a networking event, especially and but it could be just in casual conversation. And I find out that this person somehow has a connection to the job. For me to press at all. I find inappropriate it comes across as demand. Even if that isn't my language, I think is doubly a mistake when you actually tell somebody you're just interested in meeting for informal conversation. And then they show up and say, hey, I'm looking for a job. Can you help me up in having a dialogue with somebody? I'm now in the employment category. Where I just don't know what to do. And I'm asking you to fill in the blanks for me coming unprepared and all those things and coming to a networking event. Unprepared. Almost as bad as coming to an interview. Unprepared. It means that you didn't value this interaction. Well, if you didn't value it enough to do the homework. Why are you asking for my time? Now with that said if it's just a networking conversation. It's just a conversation. Keep it just a conversation allow the employment opportunity to happen naturally. And if it doesn't then when you are asking for the referrals. Maybe you come up and say, you know, we we've talked on this. This isn't the purpose of my meeting with you. But I am looking for a job. And and what you've said actually resonated. I'm wondering perhaps at some point. We might be able to talk about that. And then let them pursue it or not to come in and just suddenly pivot to your job search it. It kills your credibility..

"Hey world. It's Andrew in this episode of job seekers radio. We give you some pointers. Some tips on how to start manage and promote your own job seekers support group. Welcome to job seekers radio. I'm Andrew, and I'm Scott, this is a podcast dedicated to providing you meaningful support to find great careers faster. Whether you're working or not we are coming to you from the city of Portland that is a city of roses today on job seekers radio were talking about how to create your own job seekers group. Right. We know that there are going to be some of our audience members who don't have access to a job group or they don't have. They don't know of one they've done their search. They've talked to different people. And there just isn't one in your area. We want to encourage people to start their own. They shouldn't feel as if there is no one out there that can help them there is because there's always going to be others who are also looking for work. It's simply getting in touch with them, creating your own actually gives you a sense of purpose and. A bit of control when you have choices and how to set it up. How often to have it where we're gonna talk about an a minute. This gives you that sense of freedom. Freedom choice implies freedom. John Whitmore who wrote coaching for performance talks about this. As you provide yourself or others choices in what they can do. It gives them a sense of empowerment, and that means they are free to make the choice or not. So in doing this. You're actually creating your own access to the help you need by reaching out to people who are in a similar situation. I think of a lot of the groups that we've participated in over the years and a lot of those really they were organic in their creation and somebody was out of work or looking for work, and they met somebody else who was out of work and looking for work and said, hey, let's get together and make it might have been something very simple as just two people. Meeting for coffee once a week, right? We've talked in the past about the beer's network here in Portland. It was a small group of executives who were all found themselves on employed at the same time who were getting together for a beer once a week or once every other week, just to socialize. And they thought why not make this into a group for those like us? So that's how that group started. It really is that easy. Don't over think. It don't think it's gotta be the some perfect group where everything's gotta be an order. We are going to give you some guidelines some things here from our experience that it actually helped us build a group that is successful. We wanted to start with logistics. You know, how do you set it up? And where do you have it in all rat? What are your thoughts on that? Well, I think it's really important to do a works for you. If there isn't a group out there that that is available or accessible, then as you create one do what works for you select the days times locations that worked for your schedule. If you have a young family, for example, and you can't be too far from home. They're usually places where you can meet coffee shops are all often a great way to start that some of them even have small meeting rooms or you know, side corners, where if you talk to the manager they're often willing to let you set up a little bit of space to to have these regular meetings as long as it's not ten people. But then you can get started. There we have landed in the the local shopping mall. It's indoors they have cafe tables. It's open to the public from early in the morning for mall walkers. This is another thing that you can do as long as you're not breaking any rules. And the the space is public and available find it be creative. But do what works for you? We'll just draw a circle around your house. Maybe you know, one or two miles from your home and say, okay, there's probably a library there. I've. Seen these groups at a library. I've seen them. I we held it at my real estate office when I've selling real estate it could have been at a title company or a mortgage, right knee, or a what's another place that no it could be one of a number of places when they have a meeting room if it's going to be at a time, for example, when it was in your offices. We met before the office actually opened you would be there to open up the door. So we could get in, but they weren't going to be using that conference room. So reach out to your friends or or acquaintances who have access to these kinds of meeting rooms, see if you can work something out one of the things once you've chosen a place that you wanna make sure you do is that you have a regular rhythm that you have the meeting every so often. So if it's like ours, you want we put it together every other week, and we make sure it's every other week. So that people can start to count on that if they haven't been there too. Experience our networking group. They want to know where it is. So that they can come by check it out. See if it works. And if they don't know anybody making it hard to find is going to keep the numbers down. We want to consider how accessible that is to everyone. And if they know wind defined you as well as where it's going to make it easier to grow that group that brings up time, and I know one of the things when I was moderating breakfast club for the at the first it started at eight o'clock, and it went for two hours and didn't get over till ten and it made me a little jittery because I was building a real estate business and that was productive hours. Right. I ended up moving it to seven thirty and saying this is over in an hour and a half. Right. And the reason I did that is it was personal right? I was being selfish. If you wanna call it that. But I was what ended up happening in one of the side effects of that was it actually. Eliminated a bunch of people that were just using it as a diversion or a time-waster. Okay. Sure. Whatever and it helped give them back the day. So that they could go network or. Exactly. And and still they felt like there half their day was not wasted to exactly some of the groups that I've been in the past when they hold them in like mid afternoon. We would have people not show up to those because they had interviews. Well, by all means go to the interview, if if you have to make a choice between the job club and an interview I would air towards the interview one hundred percent because if that's going to lead you to your next dream job. It would be a crime to prioritize a networking group over that. But with that said when you create your own make it at a time when it's less likely to dig into people's schedules when their interviews or going to happen, and that's going to differ on where you are the job. You're looking for in what industry all of those variables play part? But you want to make sure that you're making this amenable to as many people as possible. In both directions. The can also as we do invite people who may be hiring managers. We have a couple of friends one is he he has a real estate business and other one has a financial planning business and other one is an HR manager, and they come periodically to give advice to give the lay of the land from their perspective. And it's always interesting to the job seekers that are attending. Sometimes these things don't really have to be in person. Although there is benefit to that. So some of our listeners may be or in a remote space or they don't have access to other people locally. It's not out of bounds to think. Hey, why don't we just meet on Google hangout or shore, a zoom or whatever they call it nowadays. And for those who don't like to leave home. This is perfect. Actually, if you're the introvert, and you just you want a home base job in you. You just don't want to leave the house, that's understandable. While we are going to incur. Urge you to get out there and meet people in person by creating a job group that is web based that can reach all those other people who prefer that web based environment as well. So you're not necessarily wasting your time. Exactly. So that brings us to in agenda, and this is something that I've seen used differently in different groups. And so this might be a determining factor for how you put together yours is if you're starting a group go visit a bunch of different groups and see what you like about each one. And maybe if there isn't any I guess you'd be creating one, but that's a good way to go and find what works, and what doesn't for you is by visiting these other groups, right? And if you need advice on on putting this together, I would recommend looking for job seekers groups in other communities say for instance, if you're in a rural area outside of of metropolitan area will just say Seattle, you can actually find job seekers groups in Seattle and. To see if you can contact them to get advice on how to set one up in your area again, whether or not there's a an agenda every group does a little bit differently. I will say for an effective meeting in the job, a written agenda is generally preferred it gives you an idea of what you're going to be talking about and how to stay on task. That's not going to be true in a group like this necessarily. However, if the kind of work, you're looking for is one is the type that uses agendas by all means replicate your business environment in this to a certain degree while being open to others to join. It gives them the sense that this is business oriented job group. And that really helps everybody involved it gives each participant. Maybe a job to do. And so by having an agenda, you might have a certain amount of time allotted for each person while you could have timekeeper that gives somebody value who likes to keep time. Great play. You can have somebody taking notes or scribe. And so you give that person something to do and the more refined. You have I think this process. The better results you're going to have for everybody. Sure. And it doesn't all rely on you, you can get other people helping as they start to attend. You have a system put together it can run on its own. And so that's the whole point of maybe standing up one of these groups is get it to a point where it can run it self right without your inter- intervention. Always come back to what works for you. Because the chances are good that that is going to work for other people as well. And every group is different. It's going to have its own brand. It's going to have its own look and feel if you will. So again, if you're starting out with what works for you with the idea that you're not the only one who's going to appreciate that it's going to be able to build organically. But you're also going to need to have some kind of focus so for example with ours. The breakfast club we had into. Mix and accountability piece. And it's not that we are going to hold. Our our attendees accountable. They're holding themselves accountable, and we simply facilitate that that's one of the differentiator for hours find the differentiator for you and focus on that. Whether it's industry related, whether it's community related, whatever that looks like some of these groups actually have an educational component. So they may bring in a guest speaker, or if it's done by career coach, they might have a career coach give a session on interviewing or or networking or doing a resume or any or any of those things look at the agenda and make it easy on yourself. Really? Right. Trying to fill in agenda with the guest speaker every week or every other week is going to be a challenge that that may not work every time. But if you can get it to work once a month once every other month, whatever that might be it makes things interesting and people will want to keep coming. Yeah. So I was mentioning before breakfast club. And how it had? I've kinda gotten off the rails that the meetings were taking two hours. Plus, we were having thirty forty people in the room, and it was just getting unmanageable. And that's when I actually in introduced the idea of accountability the same people keep showing up to the meeting. They're not progressing. They're not changing their right? They're not really doing anything except show up to the meeting which is good, which is good. It's good to a point. It's something. Yeah. It's something. I get. It was frustrating for me, though, is a moderator to see people coming back. And so I I made a New Year's resolution then say I was going to be the last guy sitting at the table, and it backfired on me because as soon
