Every day someone comes in says that they don’t have any skills; no marketable abilities and no experience because they stayed home and took care of their children.
This is the most incorrect statement of 2014 (or any year) because it is so very far away from being true.
The truth is that they are over qualified for many of the jobs that they (usually because this is what they have years of experience doing) most want to do caregiving, cleaning or cooking.

  1. 1. WELCOME TO THE FIRST BUT, I STAYED HOME AND TOOK CARE OF MY KIDS…I HAVE NO EXPERIENCE! Every day someone comes in says that they don’t have any skills; no marketable abilities and no experience because they stayed home and took care of their children. This is the most incorrect statement of 2014 (or any year) because it is so very far away from being true. The truth is that they are over qualified for many of the jobs that they (usually because this is what they have years of experience doing) most want to do caregiving, cleaning or cooking. 14 MAY 2014 MOST INCORRECT STATEMENT OF 2014
  2. 2. In the entry level(s) of these trades, they are seasoned professionals not in some made up or clever re-wording of housewife (husband) but in ONET ONLINE (Labor Department) professional job descriptions: Residential Caregiver – 39-9021.00 Personal Care Aideshttp://www.onetonline.org/find/match/13/39-9021.00?s=housekeeper 31-1011.00 Home Health Aides http://www.onetonline.org/find/match/20/31-1011.00?s=residential 39-9011.00 Childcare Workershttp://www.onetonline.org/find/match/11/39- 9011.00?s=housekeeper 39-9011.01 Nannies http://www.onetonline.org/find/match/12/39-9011.01?s=housekeeper Residential Cleaner – 37-2012.00 Maids and Housekeeping Cleaners http://www.onetonline.org/find/match/3/37-2012.00?s=housekeeper Residential Cook - 35-2013.00 COOKS, PRIVATE HOUSEHOLD http://www.onetonline.org/find/match/7/35-2013.00?s=cook 35-3041.00 FOOD SERVERS, NONRESTAURANT http://www.onetonline.org/find/match/13/35-3041.00?s=cook ======================================================== WITHIN THESE 5-6 PAGE JOB DESCRIPTIONS… With each job description is a breakdown of the skills, abilities that these “STAY- AT-HOMER” have amassed in the years that they spent in perfecting their skillset(s). ONET ONLINE is a great resource to start with, as you try to assemble an application (resume) because it helps them realize the true extent of their skills and abilities. As ONET ONLINE (the Labor Department) classifies each of these as professional jobs, there are no gaps in their work history because they stayed home. When properly showcased and illustrated, these are NOT made up work histories and they are readily accepted by the vast majority of the America’s Fortune 500 companies.
  3. 3. “It’s time for an Extreme Career Makeover Show.” I’ve always wanted to see a reality show that helped Americans understand the right way to pursue a career a path. With the average time in a job just 18 months, we are all temporary workers. Unfortunately, nobody taught us how to manage this constant change in employment status. In fact, millions of people are learning the hard way that school teaches us everything EXCEPT how to get the job. Gone are the days when you spent a lifetime at one company. Now, we must figure out how to find work over and over again in order to stay employable. A show like this could help so many people in need of this kind of advice. For example…Currently, there are 15M people who are unemployed and the average time on unemployment is over 7 months. And, let’s not forget the 3.2M recent college grads that are facing the worst entry-level employment market in decades. There are so many valuable, interesting career makeover stories that could be told, and in the process, would teach millions of viewers how to find career satisfaction on their own terms.
  4. 4. THE SECRET TO BEING THE ‘RIGHT FIT’ FOR A JOB MAY 1, 2014 BY JENNY YERRICK MARTIN The very first blog post I wrote for my entertainment career site, Your Industry Insider, was called “The Art of Getting the Part.” It was about looking right for the job when you went on interviews, comparing that in-person experience to acting auditions. “When actors go to casting sessions,” I wrote, “everything they do is geared toward convincing the casting director that they are perfect for the part. If they’re going in to play a street tough on one of those countless crime dramas on the air these days, they dress down, in leather jacket and jeans maybe, and slump and scowl in the waiting area outside the audition room. For the part of the town slut, the actress struts in wearing a micro-mini and halter top and gives a suggestive sidelong glance at the casting intern with the clipboard.” LOOK THE PARTI suggested that candidates for jobs think about their attire and behavior in job interviews the same way.
  5. 5. The casting analogy might sound a little entertainment industry-centric to some of you, but stick with me. Though I have worked in the entertainment industry my entire career, and both hire for the industry and give advice to others on how to get hired in it, my advice applies to any job hunt and actually goes beyond your outward appearance and behavior once you land the interview. When you are looking for a job, every aspect of every contact you have with a potential employer communicates who you are as a candidate and whether you are right for the opening. Yes, there could be educational requirements for the position, but sometimes they are very broad and, beyond that, there is always the question of “fit.” As a hiring executive, I always want to choose someone who is “right” for the job. So, what does that mean for you as the job candidate? If you are looking for a receptionist job, think about what the ideal receptionist would be for the places where you are applying. Beyond tailoring your resume to highlight experience the duties of the job, such retail and server jobs, use your cover letter to actually tell a story about you that makes you seem like the perfect candidate. In your letter, mention that you were voted “most likely to start a conversation with a total stranger” in high school, or that your college debate team coach told you repeatedly that even though you made good arguments for your side in matches, smiling throughout those arguments was effecting the team’s ranking. Tell me that you were always chosen to check VIP alumni in for events at your school because the organizers knew that no matter what the situation, you would handle it tactfully. Even when you had to turn people away, they walked away smiling. And then, once you are going in for an interview (of course, I’m going to want to have you in for an interview after hearing about your alumni event experience), dress professionally and conscientiously, be friendly and confident, make eye contact, smile, convey ease… You want me picturing you at my company’s receptionist desk, in this case, or in a cubicle in the finance department, or sitting outside the marketing executive’s office. As I concluded that first blog post on my site back at the beginning, I’m not saying you have to wear glasses to get the job as the librarian… but it can’t hurt. ======================================================================== HERE IS A SAMPLER… No matter how much we try to educate and encourage the empowerment of entry level or re- entry workers to accept that they are not 16-year-olds out for their first afterschool job. So here is just one of the ONET JOB BREAKDOWNS to illustrate that this is true and that ONET ONLINE was the best billion dollars the Government ever spent of your tax dollars. =========================================================================

After a very quick edit of the massive details of ONET ONLINE, we have gone from ZERO to eight years of professional experience as a Residential Cook. This is not some made up job or clever rewording of house wife/husband. THIS IS A REAL JOB DONE BY A REAL PERSON IN A REAL WORK ENVIRONMENT. The below is a simplistic, assembly of duties that the applicant did as per the US Department of Labor. This would be good for usage in creating a basic; I need a resume today for an entry level or re-entry level job. This will not get you past a company’s gatekeeper and thus would be ineffective in applying for any online applications for hotels, stores, resorts or large companies. For these applications take your time to compile enough detail (key words and phrases) to secure your application and you an interview. It is as easy as 1-2-3…do you have 100+?

Thinkimeant Ph.D. FIRST BABY STEPS…. Dr. Thinkimeant is a world leading authority in the seeking employment in the current job market and is well known and respected down at the local Unemployment Office. You now start to see that you have skill and ability, you do have marketable skills and even with the basic, cookie cutter resume above, you have a good chance of talking you way into a job. They keys to successful job searching lie in your understanding that you CAN NOT just make a bunch of copies of this resume and send them out by the hundreds. Sending out this resume is like sending out junk mail, it just doesn’t work anymore and will come back and bite you when you least expect it. Your best bet is to learn that the job market has changed and the quicker you learn the new ways of job seeking, the quicker you will go back to work. The sooner you kick to the curve all of those old, tattered ideas and methods of job seeking, the sooner you can stop wasting your precious time and energy on things that do not work. The current labor market is a mine field of bad advice; outdated information and a sea full people who are willing to share their own formula on how to get a job. At the library, you will find 5000 book on the perfect resume. Can they all be right?
  15. 15. Is your Uncle Herman’s advice solid and worth following even though he has been on disability since 1972? Is your dad’s advice on “…getting off your duff, putting on your walking shoes and start knocking on doors!” a good suggestion? Actually, you dad has it partially right but, for all the wrong reasons. He thinks you need to be more pro-active, to get out there and meet people and to make the process of getting a job, your number one priority. That part of what your dad said is correct and right on the mark. (THE RIGHT ATTITUDE): You need to be dead serious about getting a job. You need to have total committed to doing everything that you need to do, spending ever how long you need to achieve success. If you are not, then, you will never do any of these things and you will have an extremely hard time finding work. You need to care about yourself and be doing this for yourself. If you are not willing to give yourself a 1000% commitment, then, how can you expect anyone else to do more? (URBAN MYTH 1): I need a resume to apply for jobs and I since I don’t have one, then I can’t start looking for work! OK…Who told you that you need a resume? Depending upon what type of job, what industry you are applying for that will determine if you even need a resume or not. In some industries, applying for certain kind of (entry level) jobs, a resume (or worse yet…a good resume) is a kiss of death. Don’t believe that? Then, you have bought into one of the biggest urban myths that there is. Remember, a resume does not hire you; a person hires you after they meet with you and are impressed by your knowledge of the job, your knowledge about their company and (after) you have demonstrated your commitment to getting that job.
  16. 16. (URBAN MYTH 2): Lazy job seekers are always trying to find an easy way to job search. They are unwilling to devote the time needed to do it the correct way. They say “I don’t need to custom make a new application for each job because that is a lot of work and/or I have a very good resume already…” The reality is that eight out of ten applications (made by people with a killer resumes) never showed the required skills that the employer needed. Why is this? Each of those eight people decided that it was too much efforts to custom design their application to show the employer that they did have the required skills. Or worse yet, they felt that the employer would be able to dig through their resume/application to discover all of those skills. The one excuse that I love is “Don’t you know that is what a _____ does?” The real world answer to that is “NO.” The key to remember here is that all that an employer knows about you is what you put on the application. The employer does not know you; you are not their cousin and they will not have the time to find out about all the skills and abilities that you left out of your application or your one-size-fits-all resume. The other problem with that one-size-fit-all resume is that you believe in its magical powers to open any door, soften any employer’s heart and get you any job; so you send it out to over 400 companies. Sending out massive amounts of generic applications that are wrong (one-size-fits-all) or that doesn’t match what the company was hiring for is the surest way to turn your job search into a failed mission…a disaster that could result in your shutting yourself off from future consideration of getting hired. Remember once the incorrect information is out there you can’t take it back. Sadly now you have 400 places that you can’t apply at in the future. ========================================================================== WHAT I LEARNED THIS WEEK… THE BS FACTOR IN YOUR APPLICATION “The best advice that I can give your applicants is to stay within 5 miles of their neighborhood (85008) in central the Phoenix/airport area….as this is your search golden local zone…I love to hear that an applicant lives right down the street…my ears perk up…” Talked to a retail manager of a big box store today and she educated me on the interview process. She told me that the FATAL “You shot yourself in the foot” mistake(s) that an applicant makes are…
  17. 17. FACTOR ONE: The BS Factor comes from applying for stores that are a long way from your home location. The BS is that the employer knows that it is BS that you will or that you can travel to their location on a daily basis without missing days or running late (especially if you are on a bus). Within 5 miles, the bus is reliable transportation after that it is an excuse to being late or being absent. This manager tells me that this is so common with all of her stores; “your application is not reviewed unless they are totally desperate.“ Her suggestion is that if you keep in the 5-10 mile range. The Manager told me, that she really likes to hear that “I just live down the street” as this tells her that you are more likely to be on time and that you will have the flexibility to stay late or come in on your day with short notice. She said that might not be fair but, that is the reality of the retail market. FACTOR TWO: (I never thought about this but, now it makes sense) the second biggest reason that she does not call people is because they applied for multiple openings at her store. According to her (and echoed by other managers) this is a real negative and usually means that she will not waste time with you. The impression that the applicant makes is that they are willing to do anything usually means that they are desperate for employment and that they are just applying for things whether or not they really qualifies for them. She says that this wastes her time trying to figure out what you want to do when you grow up and as she is busy running the store to take that much time on any one candidate. Most importantly, she says that it shows her that you really do not have a specific interest or worse yet (if the application is a mess – incomplete, rushed, and hard-to-read and/or lacks details or doesn’t relate to the skills that she is looking for) you don’t care. To her the application represents you at your best and she judges it as such. Her suggestion is to read the job descriptions and determine which job is a perfect fit for your skills (you need to do this as she doesn’t have the time or interest to do) and, then, apply for that job. She said that you must complete the application with an emphasis on the skills, abilities or experience that is requested in the ad. She said that this should be your base to build a case that she needs to call you in for an interview. The application must be neat and easy for her to read (sloppy applications are tossed as they take too much time to figure out). Remember, to her, this is your very best and sloppiness is a sign that you really didn’t want this job. She told me that it is critical that you show her that you have the skills that she needs and that you need to show how your experience (outside of the specific job you applied for) related to the specific job you applied for.
  18. 18. She said you need to show the connection. She said that is your job not her’s as she has a job and she ended the thought by saying that she isn’t Colombo! Put this all together and you have an application that will impress her enough to call you. If not, try again in six months – as that is how long they keep them on file. She also warned about putting in multiple applications with slightly different names as her company’s computer will catch and flag them as bogus. If you application is flagged, then the system will delete it any further applications from you – which means you wasted your time. On a final note, she told me that applications that look like the applicant took the time, made the effort to do correctly and that are to the point are the ones that she sits aside and takes a second, longer look at before she calls. Better have a good number where she can reach you at. She told me that this is her biggest complaint about applicants because a bad number or your failure to promptly return her call will cost you a job. Further to this point, she said that she assumes you really wanted the job or you wouldn’t have applied and she cannot understand people whose voice mail is full or not turned on. ================================================================= COMING SOON TO CENTRAL PHOENIX 300 W Camelback Rd.
