Dear Friends:

Welcome back to another new edition of AH Jobs List!

Have you considered posting a short narrative about yourself on AH Jobs List Jobseeker Profiles?

In today's job seeking world, employers are actively searching online for new talent. Professionals from all over are being contacted by recruiters who have seen their profiles or resumes on LinkedIn, Indeed and on Andrew Hudson's Jobs List.

I've heard from many job seekers who were found by employers who had seen their profile on AH Jobs List. On today's AH Jobs List, we have dozens of job seekers ranging from entry, mid and senior-level who are looking for full-time, part-time and contract/temporary jobs.

It's easy: Simply click here, follow the instructions and paste your profile. We've included some sample profiles for you to get started, but remember to condense your key strengths and skills in a compelling 300-word narrative. I also recommend that you include a link to either a resume or to your LinkedIn profile. Your Jobseeker Profile will be live in the next edition of AH Jobs List for four weeks. 

Some job seekers are currently employed and don't want their employer to know they are looking for a new job. If you would prefer to post a profile but remain confidential, simply create an email address for employers to contact you that will not identify your name.

The cost is only $10 for a four-week run.  All proceeds from the Jobseeker Profiles are donated to job-seeking related nonprofit organizations. Click Here to post your profile.

 

Your Greatest Strength? The Authentic You.

I was talking to a job seeker the other day who was preparing for a job interview.

“I’m looking at the job description and trying to figure out who I should be,” he said.

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“Well, the person they are looking for has to have a skills match, but they also have to prove they understand the industry and of course, I’ve been researching the company and they have a very unique corporate culture, so I have to somehow show them I can fit their culture as well," he said.

“So let me understand this. Based on your resume and a phone interview, they have decided to interview you for the job. They clearly see your potential based on your background and your initial conversation. Have you ever thought that instead of trying ‘to be’ someone else that you might consider simply being yourself?” I asked.

“Well, I have to prove to them I’m a fit,” he said.

“So let me see if I understand: Throughout your life every success, accomplishment, promotion, your personality, every strength and skill you possess is the result of you pretending to be someone else in order to fit in? There is no real you? It’s all an act? Is there anything authentic about you? How does that work?”

He smiled and saw my point.

Being your authentic you is one of the strongest strategies you have as a job seeker but it is also one of the most common difficulties. In desperation to prove you are the best fit for the job based on the job posting, it is really easy to miss the authentic connection that is tied to real reasons you are qualified: the strength of your authentic self. The authentic you is typically not tied to an individual skill, but to your own personal values that give you strength in any situation such as integrity, ethics, empathy, fairness, accountability, achievement, perseverance, self-discipline, personal fulfillment, responsibility and respect.

 
The authentic you is typically not tied to an individual skill, but to your own personal values that give you strength in any situation such as integrity, ethics, empathy, fairness, accountability, achievement, perseverance, self-discipline, personal fulfillment, responsibility and respect.
Yes, it can feel incredibly vulnerable to put on display your authentic personality. It sometimes seems like a risk to be frank and truthful about your how your success is tied to your personal values. But your authentic you is what will make you stand out in a crowd of candidates. Your authentic you is what made you succeed in the past. Your authentic you is why people like having you on their team and gives your bosses faith and trust in your judgment.

You might have specific skills sets that are unique. You may have a way of analyzing a problem that is different than others. You may have a special way of managing a crisis that shows you are the calm in the storm. You may have unique leadership traits that can help to improve a department's morale. You may have an infectious enthusiasm that connects clients to a product. Show how the values of your authentic you are connected to your success and to what makes you YOU. Plus, if you are hired based on the connection to your values, most likely it is going to be a company that you enjoy working with as well.

By trying to be someone else to 'fit' into what you think is the mold of the job, you will most likely be missing the most important reasons they would consider hiring you in the first place; the essence of who you truly are - your authentic self. 

Take ownership of your unique strengths and skills and connect those strengths and skills to prove that the authentic you makes you the best candidate for the job.  

 
 
Support Breakthrough Kent Denver

 

Breakthrough Kent Denver is a tuition free, educational non-profit program working in conjunction with Denver Public Schools and Kent Denver School to provide increased educational opportunities for under-resourced middle school students from Denver public middle schools. We also train and encourage talented high school and college students to enter careers in urban education.

Breakthrough’s objective for the middle school students we serve is to measure academic success by achieving near one hundred percent high-school graduation rates and college enrollment, a statistic that far exceeds our students’ peer group. Additionally, Breakthrough’s intention in training college age students in teaching methodology is to create a pipeline leading to careers in education, following college graduation.

On Wed., Feb. 3, Chef John Besh will prepare several of his signature dishes for our seventh annual “Give Your Love to Breakthrough” gala, which takes place from 6:30-9:30 p.m. A private, one-hour VIP reception with Chef Besh begins at 5:30 p.m. Both events take place in the exquisite Schaden Dining Hall on Kent Denver School campus, 4000 E. Quincy Ave. in Englewood. Find more information here.

About Community Foundations

Community foundations are charitable organizations created through gifts from people who care about a particular geographic area. Anyone can contribute any amount of money to a community foundation, which invests these gifts for growth and income. A community foundation then uses that income to make grants that strengthen their community. Community foundations operate in perpetuity, meaning that gifts made to them will continue to grow and provide resources for their own community forever. There are more than 700 community foundations throughout the United States and around the world.

Are you ready to make a difference with your giving? Find out more about Giving Through The Denver Foundation.
