    Should I put that on my resume? By Melissa Llarena


    Writing a great resume is hard. To condense your background and accomplishments into 1-2 pages and have it stand out amongst hundreds of resumes is painful but necessaryCrafting a top-notch resume requires being thoughtful and knowing what to include to help you get your foot in the door.


    As someone with a unique professional background who has transitioned across multiple business units and now coaches others on how to do the same, I understand how to build a resume that stays true to who you are while differentiating you from the competition. I am also well-versed in helping clients answer the question, “Should I put that on my resume?”

    Here are the 10 common scenarios I have encountered and my advice on what to include:

     

    1. Scenario: You worked full-time at a company for less than a year


    Verdict: It depends.

     

    No, if you left on poor terms and do not have a reference from that job.

    Yes, if you left on good terms and the opportunity fills a resume gap (e.g. time or skill).

     

    Throughout my years of coaching professionals with varying backgrounds, the response to this scenario has often been yes. Explaining a gap in a resume is always something that should be proactively addressed in person and on paper.

     

    2. Scenario: You freelanced and took on short-term assignments while unemployed


    Verdict: Yes.

     

    Freelancing shows that you’re a self-starter, so it’s important you highlight that quality. Depending on the length of your freelance work, you can either list each assignment separately or put all your freelance jobs under one title (tip: if you have several clients, create a company name for yourself and list all freelance work under it).

     

    3. Scenario: You volunteer for an organization on the weekends


    Verdict: Absolutely!

     

    This is a great opportunity to highlight what you’ve accomplished as a volunteer. It also shows strong leadership and project management, and you can use your volunteer work to illustrate skills that are relevant to the position you want. Include this under additional data or interests.

    Side note: Use this opportunity to showcase your extracurricular interests to your advantage. For example, one client of mine chose to highlight his commitment to education because his prospective employer also displayed a similar commitment through the company’s CSR efforts.

     

    4. Scenario: You want to share your job objectives with potential employers


    Verdict: Leave this out.

     

    While objective statements were once seen as something to list on a resume, this is no longer the case. Instead, focus on the hiring manager’s wants and include a summary statement that will speak to the desired skill set for the job being filled. Here are examples of good summaries for inspiration.

     

    5. Scenario: You are active on social media


    Verdict: Yes, however proceed with caution.

     

    It’s okay to include your LinkedIn profile since it is likely your most professional account, but make sure there’s consistency. The part that takes most people out of the running for a job is when their resume and LinkedIn profile do not complement one another and the information does not match. Depending on the job you want (i.e. aspiring digital marketer), it may also be appropriate for you to list another social media channel, like your Twitter handle. Just ensure the content is appropriate.

     

    6. Scenario: You want to include your references


    Verdict: No.

     

    While you should already have references lined up prior to your job search, there is no need to include them on your resume, nor should you put “references available upon request.” The hiring manager will ask for references when needed.

     

    7. Scenario: You have a side business, project or blog


    Verdict: Yes, however proceed with caution.

     

    This depends on the job and whether you think revealing this information will help or harm you. Some companies may have policies about side businesses, so make sure to find out this information before sharing anything. If your project or blog is of a personal nature, then include this if it will strengthen your application.

     

    8. Scenario: You have several interests and hobbies to share


    Verdict: Yes, if is builds your professional brand AND makes you interesting.

     

    If applicable, interests and hobbies can help build a rapport, though they can also be boring so be thoughtful about what you decide to include (e.g. your love of traveling is common, but your love of traveling to collect different teas from all over the world is unique).

     

    9. Scenario: You are not a U.S. citizen


    Verdict: No, however with a BIG caveat.

     

    You should not include this information on your resume, but be prepared to explain your situation at some point. If you have a green card, put this in your cover letter and reiterate this fact during the interview process. If you require sponsorship, do not include in your cover letter or resume but be honest when asked about your work status.

     

    10. Scenario: You left school early and did not finish a degree


    Verdict: Yes, if it helps your story. No, if it hinders your story.

     

    The best responses to the interview question, “Tell me about yourself” include a clear connection between your past career decisions and your future goals. Your resume should tell a similar clear story, though not everyone thinks strategically about their career before taking the next step. Therefore, the best way to address this data point is by asking yourself, “Is this going to confuse a recruiter or does it align with what I want to pursue?”


    With careful thought and the right information, you can create a resume that will push you to the forefront. I can help as well.

    5 Tips to Get Noticed on LinkedIn

    By Kate Olsen


    LinkedIn is a useful career network, especially for those in the professional services industries. Whether you are looking for a new job, seeking experts for a project, reviewing credentials for a prospective consultant, or keeping a pulse on the latest industry news, LinkedIn is the place to be. 


    Here are 5 tips for making the most of LinkedIn. 


    1. Create a corporate presence. Make sure you establish a company page for your organization with compelling overview information and teaser details about your products and services. Then make sure your employees have associated their profiles with your company so it’s easy for prospective customers, vendors, employees to connect with the people behind the brand.


    2. Broadcast your message. Share status updates, research, articles, and best practices. If you are looking for employees, consultants, experts, interview subjects, ask for referrals in your status. Use it to promote recent news about your company, but also share content you are curating from around the web. Tip: link your Twitter account so tweets are broadcast to your LinkedIn profile as well.


    3. Engage through discussions. Starting a discussion thread within groups or with your followers is a meaningful way to start a conversation and learn valuable insights about how to position your brand, product, services, content. Define a new topic, ask a question, ask for ideas, and then promote the discussion within your network.


    4. Get active with groups. Join industry or subject matter groups to connect with peers, ask questions, showcase expertise and build influence. 


    5. Track trends with Pulse. Pulse aggregates news from LinkedIn Influencers and relevant media outlets and categorizes the content in channels. You can follow specific people, companies, groups, publications or topic areas. Pulse is a great way to stay current with happenings in your industry – you can even publish your own content and gain followers to help you gain status as a LinkedIn Influencer.

    By Melissa Llarena, Career Outcomes Matter

    Every workplace has one -- the manager who wants to know what you’re doing, when you’re doing it and how you’re doing it at all times. They may even take charge of projects they initially asked you to oversee. If this sounds like your boss, then you’ve got a micromanager on your hands. While micromanagers may have good intentions, they ultimately have a negative impact on your performance and prevent you from professional growth. How can you be sure your boss is a micromanager? Take the quiz below by adding one point for each statement that applies to you.

    1. Your manager checks in on you constantly.

    While it’s expected of a manager to check in on their direct reports to see what they’re doing and if they need any assistance, a micromanager crosses the line by always wanting to know where you are and what you’re working on.

    2. When asking you to complete a task, your manager tells you, in detail, how to complete the assignment.

    A manager will assign a task and may even provide suggestions on how you should go about it, while a micromanager will tell you exactly how you should complete the task, leaving no room for your input or opinion.

    3. Your manager indicates being swamped at work but refuses to delegate any projects to you.

    Even though you’ve offered to help your clearly stressed manager with one of the many projects on his or her plate, your manager hesitates to relinquish anything to you or another direct report, instead preferring to oversee everything from start to finish.

    4. Your manager wants constant status reports on the progress of a project.

    A manager will typically want occasional status reports on a project to ensure it’s moving along smoothly, however a micromanager wants to be much more involved, seeking continuous updates to the point where it delays the completion of the project.

    5. Your manager gives you a task to complete but later decides to do it him or herself.

    When assigning projects, one of the ways a micromanager shows his or her true colors is by reclaiming control. It may be a subtle action, in which your manager slowly but surely takes over, or an immediate decision. Regardless, the project is no longer yours.

    6. Your manager has a tendency to withhold information because he or she doesn’t think you need to know.

    Of course you should not always be privy to everything your manager is working on, but if you have a boss who has a tendency to hold back information from you, forcing you to rely heavily on that person to do your job, your manager is micromanaging.

    7. Your manager requires you to seek his or her permission before you start a task.

    While a manager may appreciate the initiative taken when you decide to take on a task on your own, a micromanager frowns upon an employee taking action without his or her consent and will likely require the employee to seek permission before starting anything.

    8. You constantly feel anxious around your manager and are afraid of making a mistake.

    When working under a manager, you should feel as though you have a balance between the autonomy you desire and support from your supervisor, but when working under a micromanager, you likely feel neither autonomy nor support.

    9. Your manager constantly questions your judgment and decision-making.

    A micromanager lacks trust in his or her employees, often without justification. This leads to continuous suspicions regarding their direct reports’ judgment calls and ability to make decisions without guidance.

    10. Others around you refer to your manager as a micromanager.

    The most obvious sign of a micromanager: when your peers or those who know your boss refer to him or her as a micromanager.

    Now tally your points to find out if your boss is a micromanager:

    0-2: You have nothing to worry about. Sounds like you have a great manager!

    3-5: Your manager shows hints of being a micromanager but has not completely crossed over.

    6-8: Warning! You have a manager who’s very close to being a full-blown micromanager.

    9-10: Your boss is a complete micromanager and has created a toxic work environment for you.

    So, is your boss a micromanager?

    If, after taking the quiz, you discover you have a micromanager for a boss, there are ways to cope. As a virtual career coach, I have helped many clients handle sensitive micromanaging situations so that they can excel in their careers. I have also provided executive coaching to micromanagers to help them amend their behavior.

    The workplace is never easy to navigate, but with some guidance, it can be done. Subscribe to my blog to learn more effective tips on how to handle workplace relationships and career growth.

    For IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 

    This Saturday, the Alliance of Women in Media, Southern California Affiliate will hosts its' 7th annual Speed Mentoring event.

    The CBS lot will be filled with women & men engulfed in today's media who are setting the pace for the next generation. The AWM SoCal Board of Directors has worked to create a space for young women & men to ask questions, inquire details about the industry and find a mentor to guide them through their careers. 

    One member says her first Speed Mentoring event changed her life.

    "I was brand new to LA and everything seemed magical. Driving on the CBS Radford lot and seeing production trucks driving around and sets everywhere was a dream to me! I was so excited to meet industry professionals because I had no leads for a job. I got to talk to so many different types of people and got such valuable feedback from each one. My favorite part was talking to Val Blackburn & Steve Carver from CBS Radio because they seemed so intent on helping me get my foot in the door with them. I gave Val my resume, she passed it along to the promotions departments at CBS Radio and within a week I got a phone call for an interview, " said Kelley Salvi.

    Southern California's Alliance for Women in Media Co-President says she is so thrilled for the results of the event. 

    "We have always found great success in putting on this event. It's a great way for women & men to get advice on succeeding with their career.  They will get valuable mentoring from a diverse group of hand picked mentors representing all professions in the entertainment industry." said Laura (Behrman) Stotland.

    Salvi, a committee chair for the organization, also offered advice on what to expect at the event.

    "My advice is to come with plenty of resumes and business cards, prepare your questions beforehand & make sure you ask different professionals different questions to get the most out of your time. Act like this is a job interview and give everyone a copy of your resume. Dress nice, be upbeat and positive & walk in with an attitude that you are going to meet someone that is going to be able to help you. You only have one chance to make a first impression and be memorable - and you never know what doors could open," said Salvi.

    The duration of the event will be from 8:30 a.m. to 12p.m. Confirmed guests include 94.7's Talaya Trigueros,  Kristin Cruz, "The Mark & Kristin Show" host KOST 103.5 LA & iHeart Radio, and many representing companies such as The Walt Disney Co, CBS Radio, Clear Channel, The Hallmark Channel, Southern California Public Radio 89.3 KPCC, NBCUniversal, and many more.

    Mentorship Kicks Off A Lifelong Career

    Tonya Campos, Program Director at KKGO (Go Country 105)/Los Angeles was bit by the radio bug at the age of 14 at a small AM station in Visalia, Calif. Working her way through Fresno and San Diego, she moved to LA in 1987 and spent the next several years in network radio. In 1994 she joined Country station KZLA where she stayed until 2006 when it flipped format. After a stint with Lofton Creek Records, Tonya joined Go Country 105. In addition to programming the station, she’s also on the air from 7-9pm weekdays.

    Tonya Campos, Program Director, KKGO (Go Country)/Los Angeles

    Now in her 35th year in radio, Tonya has witnessed a world of change in the radio business, especially as it relates to technology. “When I first started, we would get out the albums that had been mailed to the station, or the label person would come to the station and play the single,” she recalls. “Now, I log into a program where I listen to a new single digitally and if I want to add it to our playlist, I download it and burn it right at my computer and then rip it into the system, which is AudioVAULT.”

    Social People

    But the other side of technology is something that is still very important in radio – people skills. That personal touch is what makes a difference with listeners, advertisers, radio station vendors and the label community. Social media is likewise critical to the radio station. “A Website used to be something a station had on the side, but now it’s a part of your station,” she says. “Listeners hardly use the phone anymore – it’s Facebook, texting and Twitter. Social media is totally a part of your radio station.”

    All of the Go Country DJs constantly post on Facebook during their shows, as well as use Twitter and respond to texts. Listener interaction is vital to a radio station, especially for the morning show, where interaction drives the content. “People love being included and being a part of discussions,” says Tonya. “It’s the perfect way for them to interact with radio. Listeners feel like the personalities are their friends because they listen to them everyday.”

    Tonya acknowledges that one of the challenges in radio today is the fact that few women are in the programming side of the business, especially in Country radio. “I started in radio in the ’70s and I still think it’s hard for women. We have female racecar drivers and female vice presidential and presidential candidates, but there are still hurdles for women in radio. While there are more openings, it’s not where I envisioned it would be 30 years ago.”

    That fact has also produced the most rewarding moments in her career as a successful female in the business. “It was on my bucket list to be a program director but I never thought in a million years my first program director job would be in Los Angeles. I was ready to go to Visalia or Tulare and work my way up. And the day I was promoted, I admit I was a typical woman and cried tears of joy.”

    Element of Surprise

    Tonya enjoys the constant surprises and turns in the job of day-to-day programming. And though she makes a plan every day for her work, she says, “I love not knowing what’s going to happen in a day.” She feels a sense of pride when she’s driving home at the end of the day and can hear the results of her work, whether it’s content she’s written or the music she’s programmed. Of course, when the ratings are up, that’s very rewarding too.

    Mentoring is important to Tonya, which she credits with her start in radio at age 14. It was a career day and she met a DJ named Barry who noticed a spark in her when he spoke about radio. He invited her to the station for a tour. “I don’t think he really expected me to show up,” she recalls, “but I rode my bike to the station the next day, and he was the nicest gentleman.”

    She went back every day; each time he welcomed her and taught her something about radio. Tonya worked there for five years. Looking back, she realized “he didn’t have to do that,” so she decided she would give back to anyone who had that same spark for radio. “You can tell when someone has passion and I love to see that. We need people like that because they’re the ones who are going to keep radio alive and well in the future and its up to us to help them.”

    In fact, Tonya has been in a mentor role with someone she first met when he was 12 years old. “He’s now in his 30s, and was just here last week,” she says. “He programs a college radio station. He came with a notepad and asked a lot of questions and for my advice.”

    Big Kids, Little Kids

    She has also been a guest lecturer at Cal State Fullerton. What does she say to college students? “I tell them they need an appreciation for music and not to be picky about a certain kind of music. A lot of kids will say they don’t want to work in Country but I tell them they have to be versatile undefined learn the basics and then they can apply them anywhere.”

    The need for strong computer skills pops up again in ways that most students don’t realize. “They think everyone is a DJ, but every department in a radio station uses computers – sales, promotions, the traffic department, etc. Everyone uses a computer and has specific programs for their job.”

    Tonya has pictures above her desk of some very special children. One of radio’s most powerful attributes is its deep involvement with worthy causes and she has worked with many different charities over the years. Then she found Compassion International. “We were just going to do a day where we get some kids sponsored in a foreign country,” she recalls. “They ended up sending me on a trip to Nicaragua and it totally changed my life. I came back and gave away all my stuff and now I sponsor two kids and visit them every year. I’ve learned so much about how important education really is for people in poverty, and funny enough, the way that was driven home to me was because of radio.”

    By Melissa Llarena, Career Outcomes Matter, MelissaLlarena.com

    Congratulations! You successfully made it past the HR screening. Now it’s time to meet with the person who will ultimately decide if you’re the right candidate for the job: the hiring manager.

    When going into an interview, it’s important to know what questions to expect and how to approach them. Preparation is key, which is why, as a career coach, I provide mock interviews and guidance for those looking to successfully navigate these crucial career moments.

    Below are five common questions asked by hiring managers and how to prepare for them.

    1. Tell me about your experience at Company X.

    In other words, how does your past experience relate to the job the hiring manager is looking to fill? When answering this question, you want to convince the hiring manager that you can hit the ground running and bring value to the team by providing specific examples that resulted in successful outcomes. It’s also helpful to identify how your current and prospective employers differ. This will help you determine which skills to emphasize.

    Sample Answer: Despite working for a company that prefers organic growth, I have worked through the nuances that evolve when two organizations with distinct cultural norms are brought together. For example, recent new leadership from Company Y brought new ways of evaluating projects. I set out to understand their ways of doing things by building a rapport with key leaders and sharing with them my institutional knowledge that I built during a successful eight-year career in the firm. An example of when my knowledge was beneficial is…etc.

    2. What is your biggest professional accomplishment to date?

    This is your opportunity to provide an example that shows you can do the job. Think about the skills detailed in the job description and which of your accomplishments most directly relate. The goal is to convey to the hiring manager not only your past successes but also what you are capable of accomplishing if offered the job.

    Sample Answer:  My greatest accomplishment was when I grew the IBM business on my agency’s behalf by 25% in one year. Most clients were cutting back on producing events as a way to warm leads for their sales force. With my creative team, I came up with a way to offer the same high-touch experience via webinars. Each webinar was accessible 24 hours a day and led by IBM thought leaders. In the end, I reduced event production costs by 40% and, with those cost savings, IBM invested in more webinars worldwide. I won my agency’s award and was soon promoted.

    3. How would people you have worked with describe you?

    This question centers on how well you work with others and your ability to manage relationships with your peers, managers and direct reports. Give examples of situations that illustrate how you work with people across various functions. Answer truthfully, as the hiring manager will reach out to your references at a later point to ensure your perception of yourself is in line with theirs.

    Sample Answer:  My managers would describe me as someone who would rather tirelessly overcome obstacles on my own than continuously seek managerial guidance. I make my managers’ lives easier in this way. For example, when I first started working at firm C, I was asked to figure out ways to cut costs. Instead of relying on my manager, who had other projects to oversee, I decided to better understand the transportation logistics behind the wood chips that my employer needed in each facility. After seeing what worked best and what could be improved, I took this information to my manager, who was grateful for the initiative I took.

    4. What is your greatest weakness?

    Often dreaded by job candidates, the key to answering this question is to be honest yet strategic. On my site, I go into more detail on new and effective ways to answer this question truthfully without taking yourself out of the running. You also need to address the unspoken follow up, which is what you are doing to overcome your weakness. Ultimately, you want to show the hiring manager that you are self-aware, thoughtful and proactive about your strengths and weaknesses.

    Sample Answer: My greatest weakness is my low patience when a team member withholds important information to the detriment of his or her peers or the assignment’s success. I have always tried to maximize knowledge-sharing by bringing team members together prior to launching any assignment to ensure everyone is on the same page. Yet, there have been times when people have withheld information even after these efforts. In those instances, I have learned to speak privately with those team members to understand why information was withheld.

    5. Why are you the best person for this position?

    In asking this question, the hiring manager is looking for you to succinctly convey what sets you apart from the other candidates. Think of your most impressive and unique strengths that closely relate to the job description and use those to pitch yourself in a way that clearly illustrates the skill set and qualities you bring to the table.

    Sample Answer: My analytical horsepower sets me apart from other candidates. For example, I imagine all of your candidates can create robust Excel-based financial models. However, I can also see and articulate the business story behind the numbers to influence decision-making. During a major food-chain deal, I conducted the due diligence necessary to come up with the right multiple that my superiors should consider based not only on raw data but also on what was the best way to position the assets we were selling. My strategy resulted in a more profitable deal. *Side note: The best way to benchmark your skills verses those of other potential candidates is by leveraging my highly acclaimed The Winning Benchmarking Matrix (TM)
