INTERVIEWING 101:

Art of self-promotion requires strategy

H

ave you ever heard people bragging about their latest accomplishments and thought, Boy, I hope I never sound like them. How about in a job search? Do you feel uncomfortable talking about yourself and your accomplishments during an interview? Many people have difficulty selling themselves to potential employers for a variety of reasons — they lack self-confidence; they don’t want to sound pushy, conceited, or artificial; or they simply don’t enjoy being in the spotlight. Often, this reluctance stems from cultural norms or role models who taught us, “If I work hard, my performance will speak for itself.” In reality, self-promotion is a necessary skill for your career, not only to land a job but to maintain a good image with your boss and organization. Decisions about employment and promotions are based largely on human perceptions, so first impressions and visibility really do matter — it’s just human nature. Deliberate effort and practice might be necessary to overcome your hesitation and learn the art of authentic self-promotion. Here are some recommended strategies to develop your skills in self-promotion and advance your career: Focus on giving rather than getting: One of the most common hindrances to self-promotion that many people face is the perception that they have to be good at the hard sell, according to Charlie Mitchell, founder and director of Creating Space for You. Mitchell advocates the Go Giver approach from Bob Burg’s, The GoGiver, which focuses on providing value to all you meet: what you can give rather than get. (It’s) refreshing, fun and reassuring for those of us who find we can be successful without having to turn into a pushy salesperson. Build relationships: There is noth-

By Theresa Spencer ing people love to talk about more than their own interests and passions. Likewise, there is nothing that turns people off more than someone who won’t stop talking about his or hers. Appropriate timing is crucial for artful self-promotion. Listen to others to find out what interests them and how you can help them. This builds your relationship, and they will often reciprocate. Remove yourself from the equation: Diane Kohler, director of human resources career development at the University of Kentucky and a privatepractice career coach, asks her clients to think about yourself on your best day at work. What would your boss or co-worker say about you? Taking this third-person approach sometimes helps people recognize their accomplishments and really take credit for them. You can also solicit feedback and recommendations from superiors, colleagues and clients. It gives a boost to your self-confidence and offers concrete ammunition for your job search. Put yourself in the interviewer’s shoes: One misconception about interviewers is that they can’t wait to eliminate you from the running. On the contrary, their main goal during interviews is to find the right candidate, and they hope the next person who walks in will be the one. Benny A. Benjamin, a psychologist who has worked in employment services for 32 years, advises his clients that they’re really doing their interviewer a favor if they offer concrete evidence why they are the candidate of choice. Many interviewers may have a hunch that they are speaking with the winning candidate, but they still have to justify their choice to their superiors, Benjamin said. Take stock of your shining moments: When I am coaching clients on preparing for the interview process, I often talk about creating a list of stories and examples of their shining

moments and greatest accomplishments. You want to collect a variety of examples that demonstrate the most desirable skills, such as communication, leadership and teamwork, and the unique qualities that separate you from others. Peggy Klaus, author of Brag! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It, recommends keeping a list of your best accomplishments and updating it regularly. In her book, she provides a series of questions to help you get started. Giving examples, especially if you specifically outline the actions you took and the positive results, gives substance and credibility to your assertions so you don’t just sound full of hot air. As you can see, good self-promotion is a balancing act between touting your achievements and maintaining integrity of character and awareness of social cues. It takes practice and sometimes honest feedback from others and/or access to the online interviewing software available through the Stuckert Career Center. Here are a few parting interviewing tips as you prepare for future interviews: • The interview is your opportunity to shine! Be confident and put your best foot forward. • Be prepared to share related experiences, skills, and accomplishments. • Offer detailed and specific examples that demonstrate your fit for the position. • Dress to impress (most industries prefer business suits). • Know the industry standards and company history. • Remember that regardless of how much experience you have, what your GPA is, who you know, or how great your resume appears, if you are not able to interview successfully, you will not get the job. Your resume gets you to the interview, and your interview gets you the job.

HELLO, MY NAME IS... How to Introduce Yourself at the Employer Showcase By Reba Carroll

xperts say that you have three seconds to make a good first impression when you meet someone new and this is especially true when speaking to an employer or recruiting personnel for the first time. Your introduction to him or her takes place within these first few moments and so it is imperative that it be warm, friendly, informative and relaxed. The “relaxed” part may seem a bit challenging at first, but once you have decided what to say and practiced that out loud a few (or a lot) of times, your confidence will surface and all will go well. You will be more relaxed and confident after you have made your introduction a time or two to a lot of nice people at the Employer Showcase who are looking for employees or interns--who are looking for you! I can offer you a few tips on what to say and how to say it in your initial introduction to an employer. 1. An employer or recruiter’s impression of you begins before you open your mouth. You may be waiting your turn in line behind someone else who is speaking to an employer and if those employers can see you, they will on some level be making a judgment of you. So, be sure that your attire is professional and that your clothes are clean and pressed and shoes polished. Good grooming and good posture will tell the employer that you are someone who cared enough to dress for the occasion and are taking this encounter seriously. 2. Never underestimate the power of a smile. Not only will a smile let the employer know you are friendly but smiling will help you relax! Being relaxed is the key to making a pleasant and successful introduction. 3. A simple script for how to introduce yourself. Hello, my name is ______ and I am a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior here at UK, majoring in_______ . I am very interested in a position or internship at Name of company and was excited when I saw you were going to be here. Example: “Hello, my name is Mary Jones and I am a senior here at UK majoring in Business Management. I am very interested in an internship or position at Target and was very excited when I saw you were going to be here.” It’s that simple! Now all you need do is practice and it is important that you practice out loud in order to become comfortable hearing yourself make your introduction. 4. Make good eye contact throughout your conversation. Eye contact will tell the employer that you are listening and engaged in what she is saying as well as what you plan to say. 5. A handshake tells a lot about you. In our culture we shake hands in many situations and a firm handshake is highly valued. “Firm,” however, does not mean bone-crushing. You want to impress the other person not hurt them. But you also don’t want to offer a limp handed, “dead fish” type of handshake. This tells the other person that you aren’t really very happy to meet them. You don’t want to come across as aloof, weak, non-committed, or just plain rude. Be sure to shake hands with your entire hand and not just your fingertips. I recommend practicing with someone who can give you feedback if you’re unsure. Focusing on handshakes may seem unnecessary, but first time human interaction SEE PAGE 5


is about your entire body, not just your voice! 6. Do Your Research! Often, the first question an employer or recruiter will ask you after you introduce yourself is, “What do you know about our company?” If you learn from our website or Kernel Newspaper that a particular company you are interested in is attending the Employer Showcase, research them! Go to the company’s website, check them out on LinkedIn™ and/or talk to someone who works there. Find out about where and who they are and what they do. Learn the latest goals, projects, awards, community involvement, and culture of that company as well as the names of their leadership and the vision and mission of those leaders.This knowledge earns you credibility with employers who will be impressed that you know about them. This knowledge alone may get you an interview. 7. Finally, Have Fun! The environment at our UK Employer Showcases is always very fun, festive and energy charged. Employers are there because they want to be. Having a good time will help you make that first impression a good one. It really is possible to relax and enjoy the experience even though you may be concerned about finding a job or internship. So dress up, bring your resumes and plan to have fun! See you at the Showcase!

TAKING ADVANTAGE OF CAREER EVENTS: Career Fairs & Company Information Sessions

Company Information Sessions

C

ompany information sessions are conducted throughout the academic year in the evening for one to two hours. They are part of the recruiting strategy for companies that are in a continuous hiring mode. Whether you are interested in learning more about a specific company or simply gaining additional insight into an industry, these sessions are for you! If you are a junior or senior, you are strongly encouraged to start attending these sessions early in the school year as past graduation and summer recruitment begins early. Freshmen and sophomores who would like to “jump start” their career searches should also seriously consider attending. Some research suggests that up to 85% of job opportunities are secured through networking. During these sessions recruiters and representatives interact with participants one-on-one and in small groups allowing resumes and business cards to be exchanged. Moreover, job seekers receive firsthand information about the most current affairs of the company and industry. You should arrive 10-15 minutes early and

Dress for the occasion Dress in business casual attire if a company instructs you to do so or if you are simply researching the company and are a long way off from applying for a job or internship. Men: Sport jacket or tie with no jacket, dress/khaki pants, long-sleeved solid shirt, dark socks, and matching belt and shoes. Women: Blazer, appropriate skirt or pants, long-sleeved solid blouse, neutral hosiery, matching belt, and flat/low heels. Dress in professional attire if you are seriously seeking a full-time or internship position. Men: Dress on the conservative side with a solid color suit and tie, white long sleeve shirt, dark socks and shoes, limited jewelry, neat haircut, no aftershave, clean and trimmed nails, and portfolio with pen. Women: Dress conservatively with a solid dark color suit, pantsuits are acceptable, neat hairstyle, limited jewelry, no perfume and sparse make-up, clean and trimmed nails, and portfolio with pen.

plan to stay 10-15 minutes after the session to network. It is vital that you arrive at the information session prepared. Have your resume or business card in hand with a warm smile. Be prepared with questions and don’t be afraid to interact during the session. Take notes and look interested. Company information sessions usually end with a “Question and Answer” period, so come prepared with an appropriate list of questions. Use these guidelines when forming your questions. You may ask: Can you describe a typical day for someone in this position? What is the top priority of the person who accepts this job? What are the day-to-day expectations and responsibilities of this job? Can you describe the company’s management style? Can you discuss your take on the company’s corporate culture? What are the company’s values? How would you characterize the management philosophy of this organization? Of your department? How is your company perceived within your industry? Do not ask: Are you hiring? Questions about salary Do you offer bonuses? What is your ranking? What are your benefit packages? Will you pay for relocation?

University of Kentucky Career Fairs

The James W. Career Center conducts career fairs during the Fall and Spring. Check out the Career Center’s web site at www.uky.edu/careercenter for dates and locations. These events provide a great opportunity for students and alumni to meet employers who represent a wide range of industries, and in some instances, obtain interviews with them.

Things to bring to the Career Fair

You should have (20-30) copies of your resume in an easy to read format on plain

Take advantage of Career Fairs and Company information sessions For more information about career fairs and companies conducting information sessions on campus, you must register for a Wildcat CareerLink account. You can register by visiting the website www.uky.edu/careercenter or by contacting the office at (859) 257-2746. On occasion, student registered with Wildcat CareerLink will receive emails bout activities such as, companies conducting sessions and other recruiting activities (i.e. career fairs, workshops, seminars, etc.). The employer information sessions will generally be conducted in the Stuckert Career Center or a classroom on campus. white or cream colored paper and free of any typos. If you are looking at several career options, you may want to bring two or more customized resumes for each career objective. Rehearse a short 2-3 minute self-introduction. After you have handed the recruiter your resume, you should be prepare to expand on it. This is the time for you to give basic information about yourself and your career interests. Before the event, generate a targeted list of the companies on which you want to focus. Select your top seven to ten companies at the most. Gather information as you would for a job interview. To maximize the brief time you have with each employer you need to know how your skills and interests match their needs. Don’t just concentrate on the big name companies. There often are great opportunities with companies with which you are not familiar that you can use your remaining resumes. Dress professionally! There is no such thing as “business casual” at a career fair. Dress as if you are going to a formal interview. In fact, some recruiters will actually hold impromptu interviews at the career fair, so be prepared! Take time BEFORE the career fair to research your targeted companies. At the very least, read the enclosed list of companies attending to learn about participating companies and organizations BEFORE you approach recruiters. Do your research! Nothing bothers a recruiter more than a student who approaches them at the table and says, “So, tell me about your company….” Tell the recruiter your name, your class year, and whether you’re interested in a fulltime, co-op, or internship position. You may then reveal your career interest, major(s) and,

Career Guide | Spring 2014 | 6

finally, why you are interested in their company. Collect business cards from the recruiters you have met. Use these cards to write followup letters to those in which you are most interested. Don’t be surprised, if the recruiter does not have business cards. Ask for their email address and communicate that you would like to follow up at a later date. Take a few minutes immediately after you leave each table to write detailed notes about the contact(s) you made. Include the names and titles of people who may not have had business cards. Collect company marketing collateral (i.e., brochures, CD’s flyers, etc.). This information can help you in your more in-depth research prior to a formal interview. Be self-confident! A career fair gives you the opportunity to practice your interview skills in a less formidable environment than a formal interview. Don’t visit the booths with friends or family. This is not a sign of professionalism. Interact with the recruiters on your own in order to make your own positive impression! Don’t carry a backpack, large purse, or other paraphernalia with you. Carry your resume in a professional-looking portfolio or small briefcase. This will keep your resume neat and handy, and gives you a place to hold recruiters’ business cards. We have partnered with a student group to offer a coat check service for a small fee of $1 to store your items. Don’t arrive during the last hour of the fair, because some employers will have to travel from out of the area and they may need to leave early. If you come late, you may miss the opportunity to meet with recruiters from the companies in which you are interested. Don’t dress casually!

THE IMPORTANCE OF FOLLOWING THROUGH By Sarah Buhler

ou know the conversation you have with a friend where you both say you should hang out soon but then someone forgets and neither of you make a proactive effort to make a plan and then you never hang out? You didn’t follow up so nothing came of your conversation. We’ve all done it and it means you don’t get to hang out with your friend. Not following up with an employer though, could mean you don’t get the job. Going to the Employer Showcase is a great first step if you’re looking for that perfect summer internship or a job after graduation. However it shouldn’t end there. The Showcase is only one step in a successful job search. Following up with employers is the important next step can than make the difference between getting the job or not. It’s important not to dismiss a following up email; it’s how you keep the conversation going. Many students fail to follow up with the employers they talk to at the Employer Showcase for multiple reasons. They don’t see the point of an email, they think the employer will contact them, or they don’t know what to say. I’ve addressed a few of those scenarios below: “They just said to email them. I don’t know what to say”. If an employer wants you to email them it means they want to keep talking to you after the Employer Showcase. Which is good because most likely they’re not going to offer you a job right there at the Showcase. It’s going to be afterward, so continuing communication is a good sign. First introduce yourself, don’t expect them to remember exactly who you are out all the people they met at the Showcase. Remind

them of who you are and what you talked about. Did you find out that you were both a member of the same club in college or have both traveled to the same country? Little details like these will help refresh their memory and bring your conversation to the front of their mind. Explain your situation, whether you’re graduating and need a job or you’re looking for an internship in a certain field; remind them what you’re looking for. It’s also always good to demonstrate an eagerness to learn and that you’re enthusiastic about their company. And make sure you attach your resume even if you gave them a copy at the Employer Showcase. “We had such a good conversation, they have to remember me.” Employers talk to thousands of students at the Employer Showcase and have lots of good conversations. Following up with an employer is a good way to distinguish yourself from the rest of the students that they talked to. Be proactive about your job search, waiting for an employer to come to you is not a good way to get a job or internship. If you really did have a great conversation at the Showcase then you’ll probably have a great conversation afterwards. And they’ll most likely be impressed that you took the initiative to contact them first. It shows professionalism and drive. “They were just being nice”. Employers aren’t there to be nice. They’re there for business. If they want to take the time to talk to you and continue the conversation after the Employer Showcase it’s because they think you could possibly be an asset to their company, not because they want to be SEE PAGE 8

ENHANCE YOUR JOB SEARCH WITH SOCIAL MEDIA By Theresa Spencer

ocial networks have changed our lives, so it’s no surprise they have also changed how companies recruit employees. While LinkedIn has been a popular choice for a long time, many recruiters are starting to pay attention to the other big social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Jobvite, a recruiting software company, conducted a 2011 survey of human resources professionals that found 55 percent of them recruit using Facebook and 47 percent use Twitter. And in this competitive job market, job seekers need to heed this growing trend and take full advantage. Because most job seekers are not using multiple social networks in their job searches, those who do will appear more proactive and might have a distinct advantage. Here’s a brief description of the

three main sites with ways you can use them to your advantage. All are free to use and easy to set up. LinkedIn: This site is used for professional networking and is designed to make networking more selective as the company prefers you connect only with people you actually know. It shows your connections up to three degrees away and how you are connected with those individuals. You can search jobs, join discussion groups and research companies. Your profile page resembles an online résumé, but there are also capabilities to display examples of your work. LinkedIn also provides a way for members to write referrals for others that are posted on your profile after you’ve approved them. There are also some job search boards such as Simplyhired.com that

can connect with your LinkedIn profile and show the connections you have in the company posting the job. Facebook: Many people are reluctant to use Facebook in their job search, but even if you don’t, you should still be careful about your privacy settings and what you post. Do not post comments or pictures that could be perceived in a negative way. You never know if a friend of a friend might be connected with someone who knows your boss or the recruiter to whom you just sent your résumé. So don’t vent your frustrations about your current job or your job search. Try to also sound upbeat and positive, not desperate for a job. Facebook’s new time line and “about me” section makes it easier for recruiters to find your job history information. Keep that updated with relevant jobs and education. Also, there are several applications in Facebook specifically for professional networking such as BeKnown and BranchOut. Web sites such as Glassdoor.com and Simplyhired.com are job search engines that can show what compa-

Career Guide | Spring 2014 | 8

nies or job postings your Facebook friends are connected to. Twitter: Commonly referred to as micro-blogging, Twitter has been picked up by many celebrities as a public relations and marketing tool. If your account is public, then anyone may “follow” you and receive your posts in their Twitter feed. Twitter can be used to supplement your online brand. Demonstrate your areas of expertise by tweeting advice, articles and information relevant to your chosen profession or industry. Make your bio professional by including a sound bite from your “elevator speech” that people can see when they find your account. Also consider these ways to maximize the use of any social media sites in your job search. • Join discussion boards and use your knowledge and experience to answer others’ questions. • Follow recruiters and ask for information regarding their companies’ culture and job postings you’ve seen. • “Pay it forward” by reposting their tweets and updates through

your social media outlets, as that will leave them with a positive impression of you. Any of these networking sites can be valuable in your job search to increase your visibility and brand you as a quality candidate. Using multiple ways to connect may give you an edge over others in this competitive market. But the key to effective use of social media is to engage in quality ways with other people and especially target companies of interest and industry professionals.

nice. If employers told you to send them an email, they meant it. The Employer Showcase is a great way to get your foot in the door, but following up is going to help you get in the building. Remember don’t be shy, these employers are professionals who will appreciate your initiative. Following up is one of the easiest ways to distinguish yourself from other job applicants.


The Career Management Tool that Gives You an Edge

S

By Naitore Djigbenou and Reba Carroll

tudents, graduating seniors, and alumni from the University of Kentucky have exclusive access to the Wildcat CareerLink database available through the home page of the James W. Stuckert Career Center website. This career management tool aids in students’ search for employment, fellowships or internships in addition to providing you with many other career resources to help with the job search process. The database averages 400 jobs and internships throughout the year for users to browse. Wildcat CareerLink offers additional features, such as an interactive resume builder, a document library of sample cover letters and resumes, company profiles and contact information, a calendar of events and upcoming on-campus interviews. “This career management tool is more than a job board,” said Lenroy Jones, associate director for the Stuckert Career Center. “The technology is designed for the job-seeker or student interested in attending graduate or professional school after graduation as well.” Users can upload unofficial transcripts, letters of recommendation and writing samples, and can manage all their job interviews or application deadlines on the Wildcat calendar system that syncs with their personal calendars. Wildcat CareerLink serves as a portal, granting users access to multiple career resources. These include InterviewStream, a 24/7 virtual practice interview system that allows students to record a practice interview based on industry specific questions, and Vault, which provides company profiles, salary statistics and salary negotiation advice, as well as information about graduate and professional schools. CareerShift is a WCL resource that allows students to not only execute a job search but to also electronically organize their contacts, interviews, job campaigns, and much more in one place. According to Reba Carroll, a Senior Assistant Director for the Stuckert Career Center, “Wise students become familiar with these free career management tools as Freshmen in order to become knowledgeable about the world of work, how it functions, and what they need to do in order to outshine their competition. The economy is improving but employers are not handing out jobs to the unprepared and the unaware. These resources give a view into real-world career advice from the top companies around the globe.” Accounting and Finance senior Ryan Robinson has had three internships, all of which he found through Wildcat CareerLink. “The Stuckert Career Center is the most important building at the University of Kentucky and, sadly enough, the most underutilized,” Robinson said. “I believe students my age sometimes forget the reason that they came to college, and ultimately that is to get a job.” The James W. Stuckert Career Center also recently changed its logo to include the phrase; EXPLORE…ENGAGE…CONNECT…! Our goal through providing the Wildcat CareerLink online career management resources to students, is to help them do just that! Students can register for a Wildcat CareerLink account at www.uky.edu/careercenter. For additional information, please call (859) 257-2746
