As an executive recruiter who helped more than 600 awesome people get new jobs, I developed a way to view compensation so those wonderful, employees-to-be didn’t miss a penny comin’ or goin’ so to speak.

What’s more, it’s not just about pennies or nickels or dimes, but also the qualitative ways to view them.

That’s because, just like I said to my wife the other day, “Convenience is worth something.”

Not everything in your life has a price tag, but all things do have a value YOU assign to them.

Since everyone’s value-meter is different, you need a holistic way to look at what you earn, how to interpret it, and, most importantly, how to value it.

Why do you need something like this?

Because you’ll need to use this information to craft the counteroffer you’ll imminently make when the employer gives you your shiny new job offer.

So, today, you not only get a podcast called Your Salary Negotiation Financial Checklist, but I’m also gonna give you a free download called Assess Your Current Financial Worth: A Handy Checklist to Capture Your Complete Compensation Package!

Enjoy!

Remember in school when the snazzy collegiate prof handed you a syllabus? (Ha ha) Syllabi were great because you knew what to study, when to study it, and someone who actually knew what they were doing gave you the right order to study the stuff. No matter what era you were born in, whether you’re an old fogie like me or a young gun, the “syllabus of professional skills” has been the same for pretty much all time. And, it ain’t changin’ any eons soon. Problem is, I’ve never seen one, so I had to invent my own.

In the lesson, I share my very nicely organized roadmap of skills building. It’ll help you get those skills built in the right order and with compounding effect to the amazement of your soon-to-be envious co-workers, not to mention your forever-grateful customers (whoever they might be)!

We all need them…I mean if you really want to grow. Mentors. Coaches. Trainers. Gurus. Oh my. I’ve long considered having a real-life, face-to-face mentor a luxury, not a need. I still do. But, I think everyone will benefit from having online trainers and coaches. It’s never been easier in the history of history to find, follow, and learn from them.

But, what comes with this ease is also confusion. Why? There’s not just a low barrier to entry to become a “guru” or “expert,” there is literally NO barrier to entry. Got a cell phone and an Internet connection and you can label yourself “a pro!” So how do you know who’s good and who’s good for you? Simple. I break it all down for you in today’s episode! PS: I hope I pass my own test! LOL!

If you want to know what the best resume format is, you need to know how someone looks at your resume, what they're looking for, and where they're hoping to find it.

Ya know that question you get in a job interview, “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” I think it comes straight out of the employer interview manual that seems to sit and, unfortunately, not collect dust on their shelves. The overly-thick one with the title “Complete-Waste-Of-Time Questions” embroidered on the spine.

Well, I think it’s a silly job interview question, but I think it’s a darn good question in general for you to ask yourself. The part about where you actually see yourself in 5 years. For YOU!

In this episode, I’m covering how to think about this question for your own benefit, what to say when asked in a job interview, and how this applies to networking too!

There are generally two reasons people make bad decisions. Their decision-making mechanics are poor. They’re deciding without all the information or the information they have is incorrect.

Enter recruitment. Hiring. And their convoluted practices. Which basically ensure the job seeker will become helpless when it comes to the second reason. But, you now have nothing to worry about because you have me and in this episode I make sure the fight is fair by running through 12 of the biggest truths a job seeker should know about hiring!

Ever been asked, “What’s your expected salary?” Think you know what you’re worth? Even if you did, would you share that with some silly, inexperienced recruiter who’s trying to make sure you fit into some corporate box? Here is a capital “T” truth. I don’t want you to dodge this question because I said so. I want you to avoid this like the next pandemic. Why? Because, at this moment in the hiring process, neither you nor that recruiter know the most important factor—what that company is willing to offer to hire YOU at this very moment based on their specific circumstances and potential contributions.

Pay attention to the echoes because everything you do has an effect on someone or something. What you do has an effect. What you say has an effect. What you don’t do, don’t say has an effect. Your causes have effects that will ripple in places you will never visit...and you won’t hear them, but they’re there. This episode is about thinking proactively about what you do and the effect it’ll have on others.

Have you ever thought about how dumb the word “unbelievable” is? “That’s unbelievable!” someone utters usually in the wake of seeing something…well, believable. You just witnessed it didn’tya?

Every week, I speak directly to 10 or so awesome job-seekers. One thing I’ve noticed lately is many of them have a common issue. It’s more prevalent with senior people (whether senior in level or age), but it’s fairly rampant if you’ve been working for any decent amount of time. I would go so far as to say, it’s THE domino. The one, when it falls, makes all the others fall…into place. Check out this week’s show on the ONE change that will improve your entire job search to find out what it is and how to dial it in!

Is your career everything you want it to be? I hope so. But, based on my observation of well-I’ve-lost-count-number-of people, it’s my opinion that most people spend their entire careers working in jobs well-below their level of ability. Why? Because most won’t do whatever it takes. Let’s at least make it easier for you to do what it takes to run a successful job search so you can find the right company to thrive in!

We need to talk about fear. Fear, like failure, must exist for you to achieve your greatest heights. It must be present, but we don’t want it to stand in your way.
