  • 1. 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.” 15 MAY 2014 THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIAL
  • 2. LOOK THE PARTI suggested that candidates for jobs think about their attire and behavior in job interviews the same way. 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. ========================================================================
  • 3. TIPSTER: Anyone with a clean MVR, who can drive a stick shift and doesn’t mind being nice to people is qualified for this job. But, will you be selected? Will you get the call? Enhance your chances by looking up Valet on ONET ONLINE (http://www.onetonline.org/) to see what actual skills and abilities are really needed. This is important if you are not (currently or have been) a valet parker. Look through the skills (mostly customer service kind of stuff) and talk about that aspect of your previous jobs – This is important to show the employer that you have these skills as they do not (personally) know you! Now, does the online application with the help of ONET then go over to their main office to introduce yourself as a person with a “CLEAN” MVR who is over 25 years-old and who can drive a stick shift (and ask them to pull your application). REALLY WANT THE JOB: CUT THROUGH ALL THE APPLICATIONS, DRESS YOURSELF UP LIKE YOU WERE GOING TO WORK (Polo Shirt and Khakis) and go over and do the same introduction and keep talking until you are hired or they threaten you with a restraining order.

  • 8. 12- Why are you interested in potbelly? Don't be nervous in this interview, they are not looking for robots, and this is not an office job. They can care less on how many jobs you had in the past if you can't explain the job. DO YOUR RESEARCH ON POTBELLY, if you go like" uh..........uh" when they ask you why you want to work at potbelly then you are not getting the job. ====================================================== Associate Interview - I applied online and the process took 2 days Interview Details – • Why do you want to work at Potbelly? • What do you believe to be the Potbelly Advantage? • What is your opinion of great customer service? • What do you think makes Potbelly different from other fast-casual restaurants? • What do you think diversity is? NOTE: EASY ANSWER IF YOU DID YOUR HOMEWORK! ================================================== Store Associate Interview - I applied through other source and the process took 2 days Interview Details – The hiring process was quite simple, casual, and relaxed. Once hired, the training was thorough and extremely helpful. This is a new store and upon opening, Potbelly has a 'dream team' crew of existing employees from other stores that stay with the new employees for a couple weeks for training. They instruct the orientation, provide hands-on practice, and stay at the store for 1-2 weeks after opening to assist with operations. Interview Question – Nothing I can think of. ================================================= Team Member Interview - Applied online and the process took 2 weeks Interview Details – The establishment was quick to get back to me; however, the interview was long and seemed like a repetitive barrage of storytelling type-questions. They make you reference a dozen different
  • 9. references to things like "the time you displayed leadership." Otherwise, the contact was very, very nice. Interview Question – • Why do you want to work here? - This is often the most difficult question at fat-food type restaurants like this. What should you say? I LOVE MAKING FOOD FOR MEAN PEOPLE? ================================================= Sandwich Artist Interview - Applied online and the process took 5 days Interview Details – It was very casual, they asked me some basic questions. Interview Question – • Tell me a time you worked in a group. ================================================= Associate Interview - I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day Interview Details – I luckily knew someone on the inside to give me a high recommendation. Sadly I had applied multiple times despite being told by said employee I was basically promised the job for I had previous work experience. My application was lost twice by the management but finally I got the chance to sit down with the General Manager. He briefly looked over my application only to see my availability and school completed. He wanted to know more about me and what I could bring to the company and their store more than anything else. I told him how dedicated I was to working and doing my best to help out the team. He was impressed on my abilities at my previous job and hired me on the spot. I took a $.10 pay cut for the hiring rate of $8.00 for non-previous food related jobs and I know they give +$.50 for any employees who have worked the food industry before. They are more interested in you and your work ethic than they are about where you have worked and contacting your employers. Interview Question – • What can you bring to our team, and are you a team player?

  • 15. KEY HERE IS FULL DISCLOSURE WITH AN EMPHASIS UPON THE CIRCUMSTANCES The employer understands that there is a big difference between “I stole to feed my babies” versus “”I didn’t really steal that big screen TV…It was the Super Bowl and I borrowed it…If my truck hadn’t broke down, I would have brought it back…!” Also, the employer is more concerned in who you are instead of who you were. They want to know that you learned more from the experience than just not get caught again. They are interested and weigh heavily what you have done, what you have achieved and how far you are removed from the person who was in trouble. This is your mission, your job and the better you showcase your transformation, the easier it will be for them to hire you. If you have not turned your life around or feel uncomfortable discussing this, these jobs are not for you and save yourself some grief and don’t apply. It’s on you! They do not owe you. You owe it to yourself but, that is a difference conversation... ============================================================================= USED JOB SHACK INSIDER…STATE FARM… Claims Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks Interview Details – Applied via their website. Within 3 days, I received an e-mail asking me to complete assessments. These tests included data entry, typing, personality, and logic testing. If you pass those, you are called by a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview is prompt, and took an hour. They ask scenario based questions... Tell me a time when, how you handled it and the result. If you do well in the interview process, they will propose an offer on the spot. There is no 1:1 interview that is face to face. Then they use a company called Hire Right to perform back ground checks, drug screening, etc. Start date is 2 months after phone interview (in my case). The also expect you to be able to handle a very strict schedule (they plan out your day from beginning to end) and you need to be flexible with times of the day for work schedule as it varies. If you miss any tasks requested by hire right
  • 16. through email and don’t respond or do what they ask, your offer is voided. I haven't started yet to provide office info. It is a cubical setting. Interview Question – None of the questions were really difficult. you just have to have scenarios ready and be ready to give the situation, how you handled it and the result. Some questions were: • Tell me a time you disagreed with a boss and how you handled it. • Tell me a time you worked as part of a team and they weren't pulling their weight and how you handled it, etc. ================================================ CRC Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks Interview Details – 1. Filled out app online 2. Signed disclosure 3. Received testing material 4. Received competitive score email. 5. HR rep Called to schedule phone interview. Had interview and received job offer the same day. I am currently in the drug screen/drug test part of it now. Interview Question – Name a time you and an employee had a difference of opinion and what came of it. ================================================ Intern Interview - I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months Interview Details – Simple interview with two - three people at the facility. Questions about my projects, previous work experience, why I chose to work here, and also when I would be ready to start if I were offered. The most important thing I would say is be ready to support what you've worked on and how you were able to solve the problems that you did Interview Question – • What was the most difficult thing you've had to make in recent years? ================================================ Interview Questions • Tell me a little more about yourself • Give a time where you had to persuade a peer or a coworker to have something go your way. What was the situation and how was the outcome? • Tell me about a time you had to multitask between tasks in a pressure environment. What was the situation and how did you overcome it? • Tell me about a time you went above and beyond for a customer. What was the situation and what was the outcome? • Give me a time when you and your coworkers couldn't agree on a project. What was the situation and how did you overcome it?
  • 17. Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 1 week Interview Details – Well I'm just gone start from the Beginning my first step was a phone interview which was scheduled at 11:30 am but I my interviewer called me late. The guy who interviewed me was pretty straight forward and told me at the beginning of the phone interview to tell him a little about me, but he only wanted to hear stuff that would help me get a job. The questions were pretty typical interview questions, I think the only thing at scared him was when i was said something about going back to school. So if you get an interview with this company please don't mention going back to school unless your more specific on why, because most companies feel that if you go back to further your education your not going to be with the company long. Interview Question – Pretty Standard questions nothing surprising or hard. ================================================= SOUNDS CRAZY? A 20 PAGE STUDY GUIDE FOR A JOB THAT REQUIRES NO EXPERIENCE?

Here in Phoenix, SSP America has two separate operations. One is at Sky Harbor Airport and there is the Homeland Security Badging process. The badging process is complicated. Some things are acceptable after “X” number of years while other things are never. Many times, even the employers are not sure. DON’T ASSUME THAT THE ANSWER IS NO. If the employer is not certain how you can be? Contact the Sky Harbor Badging Office and make sure. Better to ask and be surprised than to just walk away from a great opportunity to only find out you were wrong.
  • 42. http://skyharbor.com/about/securitybadging.html SSP AMERICA also has a 48,000 sq. ft. cooking facility off the airport at 16th St. and Grant. Since this is not at the airport, different rules and measures are in place. At the Grant Facility, your skills, abilities are the first consideration. If you have done your job to show them how well you match the skills that they need, you will find that they are much more willing to talk about your past. They are concerned with who you are and what you bring to the table. They look at the age, IMPORTANTLY they want to know the circumstances as to what happened, do you have remorse and what have you done to put your life back together. You need to reassure them that you are NO LONG that person and illustrate by what you have done to make yourself different. Repentant people are unlikely to repeat past mistakes. They look at how old the offence(s) are (with age and lack of additional charges a good indicator of truth on your part).

Since they have been here less than 6 months…they are not going anywhere for a long time and that gives you STABILITY! C.

This was so that everyone would leave them alone and they will have the time to cherry pick the best-of-the-best… How do you become the “best-of-the-best?” Grab up your old friend (ONET ONLINE) to give you the tools you need to demonstrate to their gatekeeper that you are very qualified for the job you apply for.

  • 48. You’ll learn new things, get recognized for your efforts and learn skills that last a lifetime. What are we looking for? The good news is that your training will teach you everything you need to know to succeed on the job. But there are a few skills you should have from the get-go: You’re a fun and friendly person who values customers and takes absolute pride in everything you do. Communication skills are key – you’re not going to be able to text message customers back and forth. In other words, you should be comfortable talking to strangers. You’ve got attitude - the right kind of course - and understand the need to be on time, all the time. With loads of energy, you understand that work is easier – and more fun – with some teamwork. And you’re at least 16 years old – 18 if you want to be a driver. Keep in mind, this is just basic information. You’ll find out more after you apply. And independently-owned franchised or licensed locations may have different requirements. We’ve got great jobs for people just starting out in the workforce, looking for a flexible second job or staying in the workforce after retirement.

  • 49. ====================================================== Do you have reliable transportation? Since I lived in the neighborhood, I said "Yes Sir! I do...they are called my feet as I just live down the street!" =========================================================================== Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied in-person and the process took a day Interview Details – I was walking into stores around my neighborhood looking for jobs one Sunday afternoon. I walked into Pizza Hut since they had a Now Hiring sign. The manager was there and he handed me an application to fill out. Afterward he interviewed me on the spot. It's been so long so I can't actually remember the questions, but I'm pretty sure they were your run-of-the-mill honesty questions. In my case the manager was a pretty cool, laid-back guy in his early 20's so he wasn't too harsh. No drug test. I was luckily hired on the spot. Interview Question – • Has there ever been a time you were tempted to steal? ========================================================================== Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied in-person and the process took a day Interview Details – The interview was basically short and sweet. I got an interview from employee referral. The interview lasted at most 1/2 hour because of the explanation of the general job as well as the hours available and some information regarding the store. I was asked what days I would be available, if i had the reliable transportation, generally basic questions. I was hired on the spot, as anyone could've been hired. The interview process is definitely not competitive and there are little to no standards in hiring employees. Interview Question – • What days are you available during the week? • How many hours would you like to work? • Do you have reliable transportation? ===================================================================== Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 1 week Interview Details – Applied and got called in for an interview the next day. Interviewed with the assistant manager, then met with the manager 2 days later. Came back in for training 3 days later. Simple process. Interview Question – • Explain how you would handle a difficult customer? ======================================================================= Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks Interview Details – Dress nicely, be polite, ask questions about the company that shows your interest in working for pizza hut, and just be yourself. There is also a test online that asks questions but they are simple and are just common sense. Make sure once you have filled out the application online that you give pizza hut a call to touch base on job opportunities and to get your name in their minds.
  • 50. Interview Question – Honestly there were no difficult or unexpected question. it was a simple process. ======================================================================== Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 2 days Interview Details – Not too bad for a highschool graduate first time interview. Very quick, very comfortable. Interview Question – • What would you say in this situation? ========================================================================= Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks Interview Details – I got called for an interview about 2 weeks after submitting my application. When I got to the store, there was another person having an interview (who was also hired), which was right out there in the lobby. The general manager basically told me what the position was and asked me when I could start working. He didn't ask me any other questions and the entire interview process took about 3 minutes. Interview Question – I was not asked any questions other than when I could start working. =========================================================================== Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 3 days Interview Details – Interview was simple; an inexperienced manager who had never given an interview before sat down with me, asked me about what job I wanted, then said I seemed nice and told the hiring manager to hire me; I was hired within two days. This was the simplest interview I have ever experienced. Interview Question – • Are you good with computers? The register system is simple, but I don't want you to blow it up or something. ============================================================================= Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took a day Interview Details – it was a very easy interview . The hiring manager pretty much just told me the company policies and dress code. The only questions he asked me was about my availability then had me fill out some paper work after that told me to come back 2 days later so I could start training which only took like 2 hours then i got to start the next day. Interview Question – • What days are you available? ========================================================================== ===================================================================

Dress for Success = clean clothes, combed hair and a recent bath helps! Do some homework on how they do things. Show up earily 9AM – Noon on any weekday…Late afternoons won’t work as everyone is too tired to talk to you and they are trying to get caught up. If you are offered a position and what salary they quote you is TOTALLY based upon how well you present yourself and how much they like you! So go with your “A” Game! Ask to fill out an application (correctly – no blanks) with a phone number where you will (can) pick up the phone directly and/or be able to return a call within 30 minutes (you have a window of 1 hour before the employer calls the next applicant on their list). Get the name of who you talked to and call them (at least) once every three days until they hire you or get a restraining order again you! Really impress them by showing up instead of calling! An apprentice is a worker who learns a craft through planned, supervised On-the-Job-Learning (OJL) in conjunction with receiving planned, related technical instruction in a classroom setting. They are taught the proper use, care and safe handling of tools and equipment used in their work. Apprentices are a full-time, paid part of the workforce. Apprentices are required to pursue a course of study or enroll in classroom instruction in subjects related to the trade to compliment their on-the-job learning. Apprenticeship is no snap!! If someone is looking for a soft touch, apprenticeship isn’t it. It demands hard work and has tough competition. AN APPRENTICE MUST HAVE THE WILL TO SEE THE PROGRAM THROUGH. • It takes ambition. • It takes drive. • It takes courage. • It takes patience. Are apprentices paid? Yes. Apprentices must be full-time employees of the employer who is sponsoring the training program. However, in the event of a School-to-Registered Apprenticeship program, apprentices may be employed part-time. Typically, the wage of an apprentice starts at 40-50% of a skilled worker's wage. Wages increase progressively with satisfactory completion of work assignments and Related Technical Instruction.
  • 54. ADVANTAGES OF REGISTERED APPRENTICESHIP • A paycheck - from day one, you will earn a paycheck guaranteed to increase over time as you learn new skills. • Hands-on career training - as an apprentice, you will receive practical on-the-job training in a wide selection of programs, such as health care, construction, information technology and geospatial careers. • An education - You’ll receive hands-on training and have the potential to earn college credit, even an associate or bachelor’s degree, in many cases paid for by your employer. • A career - once you complete your apprenticeship, you will be on your way to a successful long-term career with a competitive salary, and little or no educational debt. • National industry certification - when you graduate from a career training program, you’ll be certified and can take your certification anywhere in the U.S. • Recognizable partners - many of the nation’s most recognizable companies have Registered Apprenticeship programs HOW TO APPLY TO AN APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM • Call and ask when applications are taken. Some programs take applications any time their office is open, others are only available at certain times. Make sure you don’t miss an opportunity-get all this information first. • Find out what documents you need to bring with you. The programs are required by the Federal Government to keep copies of certain documents. They will return your originals to you. They will not allow you to apply without all documentation. • Ask if they can send you any materials about their programs. If after reading those materials, you still have questions, then call the program office and ask for clarification. Ask if they have a website. Many programs provide excellent information regarding their programs via the internet. • Dress appropriately when you go in for the interview. For most apprenticeships, the rules are changed. Don’t wear a power suit, tie or other “office” attire. Your best bet is a pair of pants and a shirt with a collar. You want to look neat and clean. Shoes should be low heel. Keep jewelry, hair and makeup low key. This is not a time to make a personal statement with your clothing or hair. If you are not sure find out what current employees wear. • Make sure you take a pen (one that you know writes!) a sharp pencil, and a list of addresses and phone numbers (from past employers or references) you may need to fill out your application. Be sure to have the proper documentation that the program requires. Ask any references in advance for permission to use their names.
  • 55. • In your interview emphasize your jobs and hobbies that indicate an interest in the outdoors, fixing or working on your home on your own or helping with alterations or repairs. • Don’t take your children with you. They will get bored and cause problems both during the interview and the selection process. It may not be fair, but it is how it is. Look at this as your first test of how well your child care system works for you. https://www.azdes.gov/landing.aspx?id=10528 =========================================================================== http://www.slideshare.net/fredgwest1999/13may14a-new-job-book GO HERE TO READ, PRINT OR DOWNLOAD E-BOOK BACK ISSUES… ==================================== COME TO EARN MONEY…TO LEARN A TRADE… STAY FOR A CAREER!
