Dear Friends:

We bring to you another week of career-level jobs from throughout the Rocky Mountain region. 

Don't get left out! It's important to respond quickly to these job postings. These employers are receiving dozens of resumes from qualified professionals daily and often are pulling their postings sooner than later due to the number of qualified resumes they get.
 

Struggling in your job search? 
Never Give Up - You WILL find a job!


Our jobs and our career aspirations are such a big part of our identity. Think about it: We put so much of our energy and our lives and our passion into our jobs.  Yet for those that are unemployed, it is so difficult right now - it is like a great part of their identity is put on hold.

It's particularly tough for those that have not had to look for a job in a long time.  For many it feels as if it's back to square one - trying to convince someone to believe in you and give you a chance; trying so hard not to appear desperate, but at the same time, with each passing week, feeling the understandable waves of fear, insecurity and helplessness.

For those who are struggling, I want you to realize that it does get better.

YOU WILL GET HIRED!

While your struggles may seem insurmountable at times, also realize your job search is part of a greater life journey. Many job seekers have looked at their job search as a way to finally become happy in their careers and use their situation as a path to new discoveries about themselves and about their true goals. I've seen so many cases where things have worked out in different ways than what the job seekers originally thought; in most cases, their success was the result of some serious, diligent and hard work that required them to take inventory of their goals and visions for their lives and mapping out a plan to achieve their dreams.

Think about a time in your life in which you've struggled or had to call on a great strength inside of yourself to overcome what seemed insurmountable odds.  We've all had them.  Apply that same level of fire-in-the belly, never-give-up determination to your current obstacle - finding a job - and you will see how your attitude begins to change from one of frustration to one of 'nothing can stop me'!

If you are having a hard time getting motivated or have felt really down about your job search lately, I encourage you to print this poem and tape it next to your computer.  It's just a simple poem that has encouraged a lot of people.
 
NEVER QUIT

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about,
    When he might have won had he stuck it out;
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Often the goal is nearer than,
    It seems to a faint and faltering man,
    Often the struggler has given up,
    When he might have captured the victor's cup,
    And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
    How close he was to the golden crown.

    Success is failure turned inside out--
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems so far,
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

What an employer is thinking: the most important job interview questions that will never be asked.
 

 

In a recent New York Times profile, a respected CEO was asked, "How do you interview job candidates?"

His response? "I have two basic questions in mind: Can you do the job and would I enjoy spending time with you?"

It's a revealing statement but really not that surprising.

When you are in the interview stage with an employer, chances are, you are one of several candidates who has proven to have the experience, background, expertise and talent to fulfill the requirements of the job.  At this point, the person who is doing the hiring is trying to unlock the greatest mystery in their mind: what would it be like to actually work with you?  Why would I want you on my team?

Put yourself in the shoes of the person who is interviewing you for the job.

They have probably never met you before - they might only know you from your resume and cover letter.  And yet,  they are about to make a decision and a commitment that means they will most likely be spending more time with you at work than they do at home with their spouse, their kids and their friends!  In addition, they are trusting that your performance will help to increase the value and productivity of their organization/department and on top of that, they are going to pay you MONEY for doing so!

This is a relatively short courtship; within a period of a few weeks, this person is bringing you onto their team with the relatively blind expectation and finger-crossing hope that you are the perfect match.

Throughout the interview, they will try to figure out the answers to the following questions.  While these questions most likely will not be asked directly, by understanding and anticipating the mindset of the interviewer will allow you to demonstrate that you are the best candidate for the job.

Prepare yourself!  Demonstrate with examples and specific situations answers to these questions.

Are you enjoyable and fun to be around? (I have to spend a lot of time with you, I don't want to dread seeing you every day!  Are you a suck-up?  Are you nervous around the boss?  Are you someone I'd feel comfortable having a beer with from time-to-time? Will you get along with my other employees?)

Will you be a good deputy? (Will you be loyal and trustworthy?  Someone I can  always rely on?  Will you watch my back?  Will you be a constant 'yes' person or are you willing to challenge me and help me avoid mistakes?  Will you be thinking three steps ahead and help me and my department to avoid mistakes?)

Will you be easy to manage? (Are you someone with great enthusiasm who will be help me inspire my team or are you going to be a pain in my rear; a complainer and a whiner? )

Are you a good team player? (Do you recognize your role on my team?  Can you get along with others and inspire others?  Can you play well with others and not get sucked into office politics? Do you have leadership skills and can you leverage other team member's strengths with your own for the good of the department? Will you put the team's goals ahead of you own personal ambition?  Will your negative energy drag down the morale of the department?)

Do you listen intently and can you follow instructions easily? (Do you have common sense? Can I rely that I can explain something once and expect that you'll accomplish the assignment?  Is this person a know-it-all, been-there-done-that?  Do I have to explain multiple times how to get something done?)

Do you communicate well? (Are you charismatic? Confident? Do you explain yourself clearly?  Do you get flustered under pressure?  Can you make a good case and argue points effectively?  Are you organized in how you communicate?)

Are you a hard worker? (Can I count on you to go the extra mile to get a project completed and not complain?  Will you work late or on the weekends if required from time-to-time?)

Are you creative? Innovative? (Are you full of great ideas?  Do you think outside of the box?  As important, can you implement a vision?  Can you inspire people to think differently?)
 

Job Posting Features:

There are a couple of positions I wanted to draw particular attention to this week:

Nonprofit of the Week

The Adoption Exchange
www.adoptex.org


The Adoption Exchange envisions a world in which all children are valued and grow up in safe and permanent families, and where families are supported in their critical roles.

A non-profit 501(c)(3) child welfare organization, the Adoption Exchange was founded in 1983 to work for safety and permanence in the lives of foster children. Initially an exchange point for caseworkers to discuss placement of children with families seeking to adopt in the Rocky Mountain region, the organization has grown considerably over the years and now impacts national trends in child welfare, employs over fifty paid staff and counts on scores of volunteers to carry out its mission.

Since 1983, we have connected over 7,357 waiting children with permanent adoptive homes. In fiscal year 2011-2012, we served 1,107 waiting children: we helped connect 338 of these children to loving adoptive families. Of the children served,  

  • 66% were over 9 years old or older
  • 22% were 14 years old or older
  • 42% were siblings groups
  • 60% were children of color.


Headquartered in Colorado, The Adoption Exchange offices now operate in Missouri, Utah, New Mexico, and Nevada. Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wyoming are also participating member states, and The Adoption Exchange's Education Center has established a national presence.

What We Do

The Adoption Exchange recruits families for children who have survived abuse and neglect, supports adoptive families throughout every phase of the adoption process, and trains child welfare professionals. The Adoption Exchange maintains a national training presence, and connects children in eight member states CO, MO, NV, NM, OK, SD, UT and WY with American families living here and abroad.

Currently, more than 104,000 children in the United States are waiting for adoptive parents to release them from the uncertain future of living in foster care (AFCARS 2010). The Adoption Exchange serves waiting children, current and prospective adoptive families, and child welfare professionals.

The children are survivors of traumatic abuse, neglect and abandonment. Many face barriers because they are school-aged, members of sibling groups who don’t want to be separated, are coping with physical disabilities and struggling with emotional challenges as the result of their painful pasts. They are our nation's waiting children. And what they all want, more than anything, is a family to love them.

The Adoption Exchange has one position posted on AH Jobs List this week:

Senior Vice President of Development and Marketing
The Adoption Exchange
Denver Metro Area


Job Description:
The Adoption Exchange seeks a seasoned professional whose track record in building, leading and managing high-level development and marketing programs is highlighted by quantified results.

A proven ability to work and lead in a highly collegial manner, within a complex organization, is also required. A performance-based management approach is desired, tempered by an ability to promote and maintain a supportive work environment. This individual will be comfortable leading development and marketing processes.
