Not Getting Hired? Here’s Why (TCE Tough Love)

Looking for work can be stressful. When we don’t get hired we often say things like: why aren’t they calling me back, I know I crushed the interview but why didn’t they hire me! Then of course there is the, I’m overqualified, that’s why I am not getting hired! We’ve all been there, submitting those resume, going to the interviews and nothing happens. What’s the real deal here, is it the employer or is it you? Truth be told, maybe it’s a bit of both! So, never fear, the Career Engineer is here to share some REAL TCE Tough love to share what employers want and how you can meet the need.

 

 

Why Am I NOT Getting Hired?

  • YOU DON’T HAVE the skills they need: It’s NOT about what you can do; it’s about what they need. If the job requires 5 years of “thus and so” and you have 2 years and still apply…yikes! If the job prefers a Bachelor’s degree and you apply with a PhD…well? TCE Example: Employer needs a hammer but you keep sending the duck tape, lawn mower, power drill and forklift resume…get it!

 

  • YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT: Still applying for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING! This demonstrates lack of focus, planning, strategy, research, and preparation skills. Would you hire someone who throws a ball in the air and HOPE it hits the target?

 

  • YOUR INTERVIEWS NEED WORK: Just the facts…oh and some great stories. An interview is a meeting of the mind, body, soul, spirit and yes skills. This is where you are being accessed (all of you). By the way, you have maybe 30 minutes to SELL your gifts, talents, energy, personality, passion, knowledge, ability, job interest and skills. (So Practice!)

 

  • YOUR resumes are confusing: Plus you have too many of them! Your resume should showcase what you WANT and what you have DONE with what you’ve GOT! It should speak to your Performance, Accomplishments and Leadership (P.A.L.), passion and personality. It’s your first work sample…not something you just throw together.

 

  • YOU’RE NOT A GOOD FIT: Failure happens when you try to be something that you are not! Forcing a square peg (with skills) into a round hole (need skills)…will not work. Employer hire for skill, talent and ability…but they also hire for likability and “goodness of fit” as well. Do your research and find the right company, culture and management style that works for you. For example these are all great employers with a big difference in workplace culture (Google, Amazon, USgov, Pfizer, Costco).

Yes I Have Breast Cancer…But I STILL Need to Work!

TCE Summit Helps Employees and Breast Cancer Survivors to Stay Employed!

According to the BreastCancer.org, “…in 2017, an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. As of March 2017, there are more than 3.1 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.” I know, I am one of them. In 2016, I was diagnosed with a surprise Stage 3, Triple Negative Breast Cancer followed by aggressive chemotherapy and radiation. “It’s a tough time for many women who are anxious about their appearance, dignity, self-esteem and paying their bills.” says Francina R. Harrison, MSW, known nationally as “The Career Engineer®” (TCE).

Don’t Get Anxious – Get Prepared! In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, for every paid registration, The Career Engineer will provide one (1) complimentary TCE Career & Business Breakfast and Summit ticket for a breast cancer patient or survivor who is still working but anxious about their career or business future. I’ve talked to women in the workforce who are fearful about breast cancer treatment and how it will impact their careers or future. During my journey, powered by fierce faith and TCE “mental Push-Ups”, I stayed in business, spoke at conferences and appeared on TV (often the day after chemo)! That’s why this year’s theme, “The POWER of NOW & NEXT”, is so important. I have learned that when bad news hits us, it’s what we do NEXT ..that matters,” says The Career Engineer, the TCE Summit Breakfast keynote speaker.

ITT Tech Closes, 8000 Employees Lose Jobs & Wells Fargo Fires 5300…Is Job Security Dead?

ITT Tech Closes, 8000 Employees Lose Jobs & Wells Fargo Fires 5300…Is Job Security Dead? The Career Engineer Says “High-Touch with Hi-Tech” Skills Can Help Keep Your Career Alive”

Virginia Beach, VA — September 28th 2016 — According to The New York Times, “for-profit colleges were a magnet for billions of dollars in federal student loans and grants to low-income students. In 2010, they gobbled up more than $32 billion, a quarter of all federal financial aid, nearly double their share less than a decade earlier, the Senate committee inquiry found. Hundreds of millions more flowed in from the Pentagon and veterans’ programs through the G.I. Bill.” In terms of the Wells Fargo fires, CNN Money reports “that they are now, hearing from former Wells Fargo (WFC) workers around the country who tried to put a stop to these illegal tactics. Almost half a dozen workers who spoke with us say they paid dearly for trying to do the right thing: they were fired.”

“These two companies have put thousands out of work while high paid executives keep their bonuses and their jobs” says Francina R. Harrison, MSW, known nationally as “The Career Engineer®” (TCE). A better command of “High-Touch and Hi-Tech” strategies of sourcing opportunities, vetting office politics, REALationship building can change the results for these downsized workers. Here’s how, The Career Engineer is the visionary behind TCE Career, Life & Business Summit and Awards Luncheon at the Wyndham Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel on Saturday, October 22, 2016 (includes a Friday Evening VIP Reception). Limited scholarships are available to attend the Career Panel for career seekers with hardship due to layoff or downsizing. The TCE Summit positions career seekers/changers, entrepreneurs, (SWaM, veteran, virtual and home-based) with the “Hi-Touch & Hi-Tech” advantage. TCE does this via real talk career and business panels, strategic lunch seating, REALationships networking, access to stealth decision makers in an engaging, boutique (no hustle zone) environment.

Be in the Room Versus on the Menu!! For career professionals, the TCE Summit will cover topics by panels such as effective 21st century networking, career/workforce do’s and don’ts, upward mobility, access to human resources, professionals, and obtain golden career leads. For small-business owners, The TCE Summit topics will include CEO best practices, lessons learned, procurement intelligence, social technology power, 21st century visibility, capital and deal making connections. There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions, network and engage with seasoned CEO’s, managers and human resources professionals. “It’s all about creating REALationshipsSM and harnessing visibility technology that can increase your time, talent and treasure” says Francina Harrison.

Featured Business Panelists: Mr. Taylor Adams, Purchasing Agent, City of Virginia Beach; Mr. Leonard Robinson, CEO of EnviroBro LLC, an Environmental consultant and President of the California Black Chamber; Ms. Dannette Smith, Director Human Services, City of Virginia Beach, manages a staff of 1200 and a budget over $10M; and Mr. Kelvin Author, CPA and Consultant who practices in all 50 states specialization in tax strategy/financial positioning for business and non-profits.

7 Smart Techniques to Boost Smartphone Battery Life

ALL That Glitters Is NOT GOLD (it Could Be …RUST)

Gold Image for blogEarlier this month I posted a simple “impromptu” thought on my Facebook profile that seems to have generated a tremendous amount of interest.  I had a feeling (yeah I am getting very feeling oriented this days), that many of the good and amazing people I have none over the years…are getting themselves in positioned to be:  HUSTLED.

 

Here is a copy of what I posted on Facebook earlier today.

Just a Thought: All That Glitters is NOT Gold, Be Cautions of the “Quick, Fast & in a Hurry” Tongues, Fake places and Stolen spaces. In short folks, “Be careful Out There”.

The sad thing is…it’s not their fault (well not all of it!)  It’s almost like the sheep are just doing their thing peacefully on the hillside…and here comes those gosh darn wolves.   Of course, sometimes the sheep are hypnotized by the glare of the wolves coat:  its bling, its shine,  sweet words and the sugar-coated promises.

When you feel “anxious or unaware ” in your life, you may FEEL like you can only move forward when you have the support of a crowd.  Any crowd…even a fake one.  So to that I say … (Don’t Get Anxious – Get Prepared!).   The REAL problem is that wolves/false crowds prey on the ANXIOUS  and the UN-AWARE.  Do YOU know people like this…is it …YOU?

It gets worse…the “wolf” crowd will applause you, sing your praise, say they support you and buy your stuff (well initially).  Now this situation may allow you to think that you are safe from harm and secure.  But “all that glitters is not gold” you could be in a very dangerous space clouded by a false perception.  Why…because when you are a SHEEP in a crowd of WOLVES…9 times at of 10…YOU are on the menu! THEY are smiling, hugging you and at the same time licking their lips…as THEY prepare… for a FEAST aka YOU.  So how do YOU avoid getting Career, Life or Business Hustled?  

Try these TCE “REALationships” steps below!  

  • SEED/FRUIT:  Inspect the SEED, test the SOIL & check out the FRUIT (the REAL FRUIT, not the scripted stuff)
  • BIG EGO, SMALL HEART:  Ego’s overkill the words “I/Me”.  The heart speaks words such as  “We & CommUNITY”.
  • ALL IS VANITY:  Watch for OVERKILL of compliments in some cases,  folks are trying to PUFF YOU UP for the slaughter!
  • TO GOOD TO BE TRUE :  It is! Too many violins playing, sparrows flying around singing; listen to your gut & run
  • GOT STICKY POWER:  Are they consistently in the same form; or is the business reinventing or renaming game going on…again?

Would love to get your comments below directly on this blog on what you think about this topic.

Follow us on Twitter, Periscope and Snapchat (username “career engineer”)  for more of …this 🙂

Hey TCE, What Are Employers Looking For in 2016?

Don’t Get Anxious – Get Prepared! Welcome to the next 52 Monday mornings of the New Year. Forecasts are sharing positive job growth and hiring news this year! In fact, according to my, TCEJobStop there were over 800K new job openings listed 7 days prior to this post. Proof positive that companies are looking for great talent in this new year.  But the REAL question is…will you be one of them!

Never fear, The Career Engineer is here to share “What’s HOT in the Career Space in 2016.”

 

  1. Use of Technology innovation: The ability to command technology, understand data and analytics are a big deal in the 2016 job market. It’s not enough to just know WHAT it is…you have to know HOW to use it…the RIGHT way.

 

  1. PALS is STILL King: Remember your reputation will out weigh a resume..anyday!  So our TCE coined “Performance, Accomplishments and Leadership” aka PALS is still in effect.  Bottom-line, today’s employers want PALS. if you don’t have it, then you are OUT!

 

  1. Skills vs. School: Hear me folks, a college degrees is vital but it’s not everything. Certifications and/or “proof positive” performance of “in-demand” skills are what employers are looking for.  Don’t be paper WISE and skills foolish. In fact, I believe you should have…both!

 

  1. Mobility is Key: Candidates who can truly function “in business” with mobile devices/technology to work efficiently and effectively are in demand. This is beyond social sharing and Twitter.  It’s  REALLY about doing more with less AND still being ACCURATE , EFFICIENT and FAST. (Yep, welcome to the New World).

 

  1. Who is Hiring:  Our aging population has created a big demand for health care related jobs and technology to support that industry. But it’s not the only popular industry, keep your eyes open for other grow sectors listed in this article Top 30 Fastest Growing Industries.

Destiny Stalled? The POWER of DISCONNECTIONS


The Career EngineerWithout a doubt, powerful, purposeful and positioned
connections are the required fuel to secure hidden opportunities in the 21st century marketplace.
We’ve been taught to hone in on your REAL connection/networking skills in order to increase our payday and opportunities. This is not only true for “traditional” networking where “human technology” is king (i.e. dinner/coffee meetings) but also for our social media power venues where “cyber” time is a critical commodity.

But what if, after much work and cultivation, you discover that your network is NOT working for you any longer? You are attending meetup, after-hour events, sharing resources with your “network”, investing your time currency, others are benefitting…but you are stalled!   Is it possible that the very people, places, data and things that are connected to us and after investing countless hours of time, talents and treasures…could be holding us back? The ultimate question, “Are we suffering from “stalled out or simply unpowered” connections AND have those connections stunted our ability to live and work in our divine destiny?

As we move forwarded in this New Year, perhaps the true focus of our networking should NO LONGER be acquiring or keeping connections that have out lived their value. As an entrepreneur who has built the TCE brand on global networking, I truly believe that the REAL message is not making MORE CONNECTIONS, but the understanding of the POWER of DISCONNECTIONS.  Now is the time to discover and “ACT ON” which connections should be UNPLUGGED in order for our destinies to be revealed.

Not sure how to identify a contact that needs a dis-connection from you?  Here are some TCE steps to determine if a disconnection is REQUIRED in order for you to meet your DESTINY!

  • Time Spent versus Time Invested: In all of our relationships or REALationship® (as we call them in TCE land), we need to be about “the business” of understanding Return on Investment (ROI). You can make more money, buy more things, but the allotment of time is something you NEVER get back.   When you SPEND time in a relation, you are in a consumer mindset (hence the word CONSUME). When you invest time in a relationship…you expect something back (hence the word investment.) If you are finding yourself spending MORE time (follow-ups, recharging, reworking)…this may be a sign from heaven…that it’s time to go.   Mr. Alfred Edmond Jr, Sr.VP/Editor-at-Large of BlackEnterprise, shared this valuable lesson with me on our TCE Radio Show some years back. He was happy to invest his time, as he KNEW the return on investment would be priceless.

TCE Power Statement: Learn to Invest Your Time Versus Spending It…There IS a difference.

  • Hunger versus Satisfaction: My granddaddy said, “A starving man can’t feed a hungry man, but a plump man…can!” If your circles of connections or influence are more than 50% starving folks who are FEEDING on your substance…you are in big trouble. In fact, that’s not a connection, but a chow line…and you are the main course. In order for you to reach and fulfill your destiny you need to be fed substance that you don’t currently have. Feeling hungry all the time…and your networks can’t or won’t feed you…sounds like it’s time to go!

TCE Power Statement: In 2015, Leave the MILK Alone, Time for You to Get Some MEAT.

  • Talking versus Doing: Listen to your connections…I mean REALLY listen to what they are saying. How much of the conversation reflects on accomplishments first, then talk later? Or are they skewed the other way around shouting zero accomplishments and talk only. Are they doing anything, creating positive change or generating “new” ideas? In this economy, purpose, performance, passion and profits have a renewed focus. If your networking circles are lacking in ANY of these 4P’s, it may be time for you to “re-check the connection.”

TCE Power Statement: “Stop Talking…DO SOMETHING!”

TCE Shares “THE REAL SCOOP ON PERISCOPE”

“Let’s Talk About PERISCOPE ETIQUETTE, TIPS, TRICKS & TRENDS”

The Career Engineer

So what’s the SCOOP on PERISCOPE?  Well as an addicted “scoper” (that’s what we call ourselves), let me share my thoughts on this incredible new way to see the world from someone else’s eyes.

Periscope is nearly 8 months old with over 10 million users, and I am happy to be one of them. As an observer/broadcaster, I have commented, hearted, shared, followed, and replayed peri-newbies and the guru’s scopes. In all of my watching, learning and broadcasting (thanks for the hearts and follows guys), I have finally decided to share my thoughts about this amazing space that’s changed the game in LIVE streaming.

Feel free to comment, share and let me know your thoughts (oh…and I appreciate your follows @careerengineer).

  • Give Scoper Credit Where Credit is Due: Periscope is always changing, updating and growing (that’s one reason why I love this platform). With that being said, there are certain “Scopers” who source the NEWS before others…and they often share it (but that doesn’t mean you should steal it). So as a common courtesy: if you are sharing a news flash, update or “what’s hot” about this platform…give the original knowledge provider/sharer a shout out.  Don’t pretend like you learned this new thing on your own (when you watched it on someone else’s scope!) C’mon, I mean it’s just the right thing to do.
  • Like the HEARTS but LOVE the Followers:  Goodbye most loved list… and hello trending.  Welcome to the new deal which proves, yet again, the Periscope team was a step ahead of us.  Now we are made aware of scopers with (guess this) exceptional content, amazing retention rates and REAL value versus that gosh darn popularity “heart” contest.  Hearts are great and the original purpose was to let broadcasters know that their content was “on point and valued”. But somehow this concept got twisted into a heart contest, which defeated the purpose.   Sorry heart buyers…you got a bad deal.
  • Fakes It, Won’t Make it…Here: There are several concepts and values that are the foundations of the TCE Network such as: authenticity, being genuine and building REALationships (SM). Trust and community building are hard things to do offline, so you can imagine the drama in attaining those principles online. But now here comes Periscope…who’s original vision (no matter how often people try to pimp it) is REAL community building, being human merged with incredible technology. This is the purest form of diversity of thought from all faces, spaces and races. Now to that guy or gal who thought or have been “coached” to pretend or have an “elevated self-opinion”, it won’t work here. So try this novel approach: if you want your voice or message to be heard, just be “you.”
  • All Viewers…Matter! (Yes that includes the web viewers):  When I first started scoping I was told to ignore the web viewers and focus ALL MY ATTENTION on the LIVE viewers. In short, web viewers don’t matter because they can’t “heart you”. Gosh darn (that’s right no cussing) I was new so I followed to the letter the advice of the Periscope Gurus…but my gut and training told me different (note to self: listen to your gut). Now we understand that in most cases we are getting more views on the Web than in your LIVE broadcasts.  In fact my Peri-Mentor Alex Khan (Follow Him Now) proved that fact to his faithful viewers via FullScope.tv (analytics tool).
  • Periscope Tips, Tricks & Who Do I Watch: Hey as shared earlier, Periscope keeps up with new technology and trends. Here are the most recent updates at the time of this blog:
  1. Apply TV deal (that’s a BIG DEAL)
  2. replay fast forward/rewind
  3. Zoom (Not just for Apples anymore)
  4. Map 2.0 (A whole another level)
  5. Location myth busted (I will scope about that later).

I am honored to be a Beta Tester for Periscope so I have an early idea of what’s next (and it’s exciting). So, whom do I watch, grow and learn from on Periscope? Well, there are many great broadcasters but for me here are my Top 4:

If you follow me, you will ALWAYS see shares for these guys!

  1.  Ryan Bell (Creator of the official Periscope Summit) what a cool dude, another amazing guy who is all about community building and more.

 

  1.   Alex Khan (amazing human being, who is the perfect example of the right guy for this space, I could do a monthly blog post on Alex Khan #khanscope).

 

  1.  Vinnie Potestivo (We synced the moment we chatted, this fellow has a heart of gold and a spirit that matches… a true mover and shaker).

 

  1.  Mario Armstrong (Warning eat your Wheaties before you watch his scopes…because this guy brings it LIVE FOR REAL. EXTREME Technology content).

 

  • Money Does Not Maketh Man: Yeah, I got that from the Kingsmen Movie (get the Blu-ray). So…just because someone is a BIG NAME with BIG BUCKS in certain spaces does not mean they have character, content or value. In fact, at times it can be “just the opposite”.   Remember, they are scoping (just like you are) to explore, grow and monetize their efforts in a new market (let’s not get that twisted). I can’t tell you how many invites that I got excited about to actually join a scope with a powerful CEO, millionaire, Sales Guru, or inspirational/motivational speaker who attacked their viewers with name calling, extreme profanity…or worse. I even heard a very well know guru respond to a viewer about an upcoming event saying ”they are a bunch of freaks”.
  • Share & Tweet with Caution: Yes, broadcasters will ASK for your shares. However, be darn sure that what you are sharing ADDS VALUE and FITS your community. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been invited to watch a broadcast from a mutual…that when I tuned in…I had to tune out FAST. Their content, broadcast style and/or language use disturbed me (watching their other scopes did not help). The real bad thing about this situation is…what happens when I start thinking differently about the person who keeps ASK ME TO WATCH because they enjoy it …(hum just something to think about).
