Dear Friends:

Welcome to the weekly edition of AH Jobs List.

Those of you who are looking for a new job or considering a career change have come to the right place! In this week's edition, we have over 200 new positions posted from companies throughout Colorado!

This week, Bill Husted of the Denver Business Journal did a feature interview with me about AH Jobs List.  If you'd like to read it, click here.

At a recent Career Bootcamp, one of the participants told me, "The best thing about the jobs on AH Jobs List is that I can apply knowing they are real jobs.  I also constantly learn about companies that I didn't know existed and I'm also introduced to jobs in industries that are interesting to me."
 
I also hear from employers who share their perspective.

A recent email I received from an employer who posts jobs regularly read, "I appreciate that the resumes we receive from professionals applying through AH Jobs List are typically of higher caliber than other places we recruit. It is also helpful that your site is focused on Colorado professionals. On other sites, all too often quality local job seekers get lost in the sea of resumes we receive from around the country."

They're right.

The jobs you see every week are REAL. These are from local Colorado companies who are actively looking to identify talent to fill positions in their various departments. By focusing on Colorado jobs, we are able to attract the best local professionals to these positions - over 90% of the 35,000 weekly subscribers to AH Jobs List are Colorado professionals.

If you or your employer is looking to hire someone, have them try AH Jobs List.  You can post a job by clicking here.
 

Time to travel out of your comfort zone?

A professional I know had recently received her Master's Degree. She was focused and determined to work for a large company she'd read about and was excited about its reputation, its culture, its leadership and the opportunities available for folks with her background and experience.

She'd regularly scan the company's website to search for new jobs and she'd apply regularly to positions that were posted.  But she was having a hard time getting any traction; sometimes she'd get a generic form letter after she'd applied, and other times she'd hear nothing at all.  What was more frustrating is that she didn't have any friends or connections to the employees or executives with the company.
 
Finally, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

On a Thursday and a Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. she stood out in front of a King Soopers that was located about two blocks from the company. She was dressed professionally and carried a portfolio with several copies of her resume.  As people walked through the door, she'd ask them, “Do you work for this company?” Some people said 'no,' other people gave her the cold shoulder and an eye-roll, but over two days, she also connected with about two dozen employees who were coming to the grocery store to buy a sandwich for lunch.

She'd memorized a little script and when she connected with someone said,

“I really want be your colleague! I've been sending in my resume and haven't had an interview yet, but I'd love to give you my two-minute pitch.”  She then would tell them about her background, her education and why she wanted to work for their company.

The last thing she would do is hand them her resume and then make an ask: “Would you please simply drop this off with your HR team and let them know you met with me?”

The following week, she received a phone call from the company's Director of Human Resources.

“Lady, I don’t know WHO you are, but for the past week, employees have dropped off 15 copies of your resume on my desk!  Can you come in and meet with me?”  She was hired the following week and spent a lengthy career at that company.

Now I'm not suggesting everyone stand in front of a King Soopers handing out your resume, but there is a moral to the story: The greatest enemy of your potential is staying in your comfort zone. Job seeking is a full contact sport and it is time to get out from behind that false comfort zone of your computer.  

Now that might sound strange coming from a guy who operates one of the best jobs board in Colorado, but you should not spend more than 25% of your job seeking time on job boards.  If you are shot-gunning dozens of resumes out to job postings on job boards, you will find out soon that it is a one-way path to frustration and depression. 

Use job boards for prospecting potential opportunities that are part of your job-seeking focus, but don't rely on the false hope that simply sending in a resume is going to magically get you a job.

Here are some pro-active strategies that should be part of your regular mix of your job seeking plan.

As part of your job seeking routine, keep in constant contact with your 'cheerleaders'; those folks who you trust and know will be of help. Ask them to open up their list of contacts and give you the names you can call using your relationship with them.

Research the company you are interested in and find out from LinkedIn if you have first or second degree connections to the company, and then reach out to those individuals.

Regularly make cold calls to people you've researched.  Nervous about making regular cold calls to people you might not know? Write out a small script that you can refer to help combat anxiety or nervousness.

Attend networking events! There are dozens of networking events held regularly throughout the city. Local chambers, professional associations and even publications like the Denver Business Journal host informal gatherings that are designed to give professionals the opportunities to connect.

Work with your local workforce center. These government-sponsored agencies have a variety of free events, seminars and workshops on various aspects of job seeking.

Lastly, don't be afraid to MAKE THE ASK! Every successful salesperson knows that making an ask is a tactic that helps commit the other person to something.  Here's a list of asks:
  • Can you walk me down to your HR Department and introduce me to someone I can drop my resume with?
  • Would you be willing to open your contact list and give me three names of people I can call?
  • Can you keep my resume on file and allow me to call you back every couple weeks to check in about new opportunities that might come available?
  • While I appreciate that there's not a full time job available, is there any contract work or projects I might be able to perform for you?
  • Is it possible to introduce me to the head of the (sales/marketing/HR/research/pr) department?
A last piece of advice: There's an unnatural amount of rejection in the job seeking process–don't get frustrated if you don't get a call back or if someone is unwilling to meet with you.  It will happen.  But what you'll also find is that professionals incredibly empathetic to your situation. Every professional has been through the job seeking process and you'll find that most professionals are willing to help to some degree.

Continued good luck in your job search!
 
Corporate Profile

 
Associated Skin Care Professionals (ASCP) is the nation’s largest professional membership association for skin care professionals.  ASCP was created by the founders of ABMP, the largest professional association for massage therapists. Because many massage therapists are also licensed estheticians, ABMP membership was extended to skin care practitioners in 1997. As demand grew for an organization devoted solely to their needs, ASCP was formed in January 2007.

A primary ASCP product is liability insurance coverage for skin care professionals. The association also provides its members with a variety of publications, business support, continuing education and advocacy to legislators and the media. To the public, it offers educational resources explaining different treatments and their benefits. ASCP also participates in trade shows and has an active program in support of skin care schools. It is the only organization of its kind that provides all these industry-specific benefits in addition to its insurance coverage.

ASCP currently has one job posted on AH Jobs List:
