A career change is a huge thing that a lot of people are dealing with right now, whether they feel stuck in their current job or they just want to do something different that they enjoy. But how do you position yourself for the job that you want? As an employee, you've got to figure out how to get noticed to move your career ahead and make sure you're getting the interactions and relationships that you need. That being said, this is a two-way street. Leaders also need to figure out how to provide a safe space and environment for their people to connect, even remotely.

Peter Callstrom, President & CEO of the San Diego Workforce Partnership, discusses the organization's mission; its Behavioral Health vision/plan with Supervisor Nathan Fletcher; the $10M investment by Assemblymember Brian Maienschein; and a change to its Career Center operations.
Let's face it: we're navigating uncharted waters when it comes to the job search these days. So much has changed, and I am seeing clients struggle to be successful in their job search. I thought I would present this information in a Problem/Solution format – what's tripping job seekers up and my recommendations for how to address. The Interview Process Problem: Candidates are faced with video interviews, virtual interviews, phone interviews, and in-person interviews. I have clients who've gone through as many as 10 rounds of interviews – only to be passed over for an internal candidate. Solution: Preparation! It is so important to practice your responses to questions like “tell me about yourself” and behavioral interview questions. Not with a friend or family member, but rather a professional such as an interview coach (of which I am one). Also – practice with the technology you'll be using ahead of time if possible. Ask the interviewer what the platform will be if you aren't sure. Nothing detracts from your professionalism right off the bat like futzing with your tech or not being able to conduct the interview at all. Finally – Ask! What type of interview will this be, who can I expect to be in the interview, what else should I know? KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. Is this Job Remote, In-House, or Virtual? Problem: Some job announcements will tell you this; others don't. For my clients who have a specific requirement (for most, it is to work remotely), they don't always know whether the job they are applying for is a fit in this regard. Solution: Apply anyway, if it is a job you are extremely excited about and feel well qualified (notice I didn't say 100% qualified – my rule of thumb is at least 75%-80%). It is quite possible that there is room for negotiation with this once they are excited about hiring you. If you DO end up needing to negotiate this aspect, plan out three reasons why you want to work remotely or in a hybrid arrangement. Make sure the reasons you state speak to the benefit to the organization, rather than your personal reasons (they don't care that Fido gets separation anxiety). Why is it Taking So Long? Problem: Job searches in general are taking longer than candidates expect – and the timeline from application to receiving a job offer is taking longer, as well. Solution: The answer here is a mindset shift because you have arbitrarily decided how long this process should take…and it's taking longer than that. You can't compare your job search or hiring timeline to anyone else's – so patience is key. Make sure you aren't making the delays and protracted timelines mean anything about you, your marketability, or the job market. Job Boards are STILL Broken Problem: Clients are coming to me because the way they've always gotten jobs in the past – via job boards – isn't yielding the results they were expecting. They need to do things differently…they just don't know how. Solution: Networking, of course, is the solution to job boards. I've talked about this extensively on the podcast, including my +1 approach. Step 1: Identify 10-12 companies that are ideal matches with your non-negotiables Step 2: Identify people you know who work in those companies and/or know the decision maker Step 3: Meet with those people, either virtually or in person – and have a specific ask Step 4: Provide as much value as you give Step 5: Follow-up and follow-through Step 6: Lather, rinse, repeat For the +1 Approach: Step 1: Apply only to jobs online that you are extremely interested in and at least 75% qualified for Step 2: Leverage your network to have someone put in a good word for you, make an introduction, or otherwise advocate on your behalf Step 3: If step 2 fails, PROFESSIONAL STALKING Is My Resume Even Making It Through the Company's System? Problem: If you haven't had your resume written by a qualified resume professional, you may be submitting a document that can't be properly read by the Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Solution: I provide my clients with two versions of their resume: one I call the “pretty” version that is fully formatted, and one for ATS upload. In addition to the ATS not being able to read things like bullets (unless they are found on your computer keyboard), tables, text boxes, and underlining, the ATS needs to be able to find certain information in certain places. -Use standard resume headings, such as Education and Professional Experience -Spell out words and use the acronyms, such as Bachelor of Science and BS -Review the job description for keywords that aren't already present in your resume, and include them if applicable -Don't keyword stuff -Don't stack jobs -Translate your job titles, if needed Finally, reach out to the employer whenever possible to verify they have received your materials. It's easy to experience a glitch, forget to hit the send button, or otherwise cancel out your application. Are you in the wrong job that chips away at you every day? The CareerSpring document and coaching program will help you find a job that uses your zone of genius, recognizes your value, and pays you what you're worth.

In this episode of Work in Progress, my guest is Maria Heidkamp, director of program development and a senior research the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University. Long-term unemployment continues to be a long-term problem for the nation's oldest job seekers. In June, more than a quarter of job seekers over the age of 55 were out of work for more than 27 weeks, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Job seekers aged 16 to 54 make up just only 19.1% of the long-term unemployed. "One thing we know about long-term unemployment is that it can just wreak havoc on older workers' motivation, their confidence, their self-esteem. Stress due to long-term unemployment can really interfere with people's motivation and also their executive functioning. Those are the very kinds of skills people need to undertake a successful job search," explains Heidkamp. Heidkamp led the Center's effort to design and implement the New Start Career Network, which has served over 6,000 long-term unemployed older job seekers since opening in 2015. The free program helped midcareer workers navigate the changing job market through online tools, job fairs, community partnerships, and career coaches. "I would consider our most innovative component (the) access to personalized coaching provided by trained volunteers. The coaches were not just talking about how to fix a resume or how to have a better LinkedIn presence. Those were important, but the coaches really were there to help with accountability and motivation and rebuilding their confidence. The empathy and compassion that the coaches shared with the job seekers was huge," she says. Many of the coaches themselves either knew people who had been long-term unemployed or themselves had gone through a stretch of long-term unemployment. The coaches helped the job seekers process their stress through a number of ways, improving their overall emotional wellbeing. "That could be as simple as taking a walk in nature or finding a project to work on where you maybe achieve some level of success. It may not be as a new job, but there might be something you've done that you can feel good about. "Some of the coaches specialized in helping provide structure and accountability, which some job seekers wanted, and maybe others were good with how to think about making some kind of career transition, so we also had coaches that provided different kinds and levels of support depending on what some of the job seekers needed." Now after seven years, the program is shutting down. "We hope that the lessons we learned can help others supporting this population across the public workforce system," says Heidkamp. "It is critical to provide emotional support to all job seekers, but in particular, to long-term unemployed job seekers. I think it was great for us to learn how wonderful volunteers can be. We had people we recruited through Rutgers' alumni associations, through the Governor's Office of Volunteerism, through United Way, or AARP, and others. "Some of them were professional coaches who just liked the idea of donating some time to help others were aspiring coaches who were working toward getting their coaching certification and wanted to use this as a way to foster their skills. But others had no coaching background whatsoever. "It was just a wonderful thing. We've got to find ways to build that into public workforce system programs, as well as the programs of community-based organizations." You can read the final report on the program from the Heldrich Center here. Early in the program, WorkingNation profiled one of the midcareer job seekers helped by the New Start Career Network, Joe Konopka. Heidkamp tells us she recently ran into him and he continues to thrive in the job he got after the personalized counseling. https://youtu.be/7qeRYJ6oUKk Episode 238: Maria Heidkamp, director of program development, Heldrich Center,
