Prepare Recommendations and References
When you provide references or accept recommendations, you could actually be hurting your ability to obtain a job offer. Almost daily I receive a notice from someone I don’t know, recommending me for something I don’t do.

Recommendations on LinkedIn list the most recent recommendation first.  Hiring authorities read your recommendations first or second when they review your profile. Only accept recommendations that highlight your most marketable skills and experience.
The individuals providing reference checks can often hurt your chances of getting a job offer, while they are attempting to help you. This happens when someone giving you a reference stresses expertise and talents you have that won’t be used in the job you are targeting.
It is for that reason, that you never want to provide references unless they are requested.  Once they are requested, take time to contact your references and share the specifications of your targeted job. This will help them know what to emphasize from your experience during their recommendations and which skills they should highlight.  This will help your chances of landing your next job.
Re-THINK! The Brand Called YOU: Your Personal Branding Session
Thursday, December 8th @ 2:00 pm EST (11:00 am PST, 12:00 pm MST, 1:00 pm CST)
What if you were what every company wanted? What if you were the perfect brand?
It’s crucial when you interview for job to be able to distinguish yourself from every other candidate. Your part on the interview is to articulate why they should hire you. Who are they hiring? What is your character, track record, and reputation? What can they count on? Through a series of questions, they hope to get to know you. Bottom line, they hope you are the one.
This is an area where many people struggle. We first must learn how to relate to ourselves in a positive way. We first must learn how to deal with all the negative thoughts that are present in our “mental chatter”, clouding our ability to see our full value.
When you are unclear and have difficulty talking about yourself, it’s actually uncomfortable for both you and the person you are interviewing with. You are less likely to share the things about yourself that they need to know in order to hire you. The brand called YOU is one of the most important parts of the whole job search process.
You will learn:
  • To polish the diamond. (That diamond is you!)
  • How to change the way you think about YOU
  • How to boost your self-confidence
  • What is your “ME” file and how important this is to your success
  • What relationships are absolutely necessary to drive you forward
