An Offer You Can’t Refuse

Many of us have heard the term “down-sizing”. Down-sizing in corporations has taken it’s toll on the American worker. Many people, ranging in age from their late 40s to early 60s, are faced with very difficult decisions.

These middle-aged, middle managers are being asked to consider “early retirement.” What does this mean for you? It means that you have at least two choices: one, to continue doing something you’ve always wanted to do; and two, to start over with something new. Many people in this age group are facing the prospect of starting a completely different career.

Very few people can say that they’ve enjoyed every minute of their lives since leaving high school. All of a person’s dreams and ambitions, plus all of the effort and money spent to get those dreams and ambitions to fruition, can be diminished or replaced with something else. Not only is the money factor a factor, but so is the satisfaction of what you do.

So what’s a person to do? Here are some ideas:

1. –Give yourself some time to self-reflect. Ask yourself some questions. ATER ANSWER those questions if you can. Think about what you really want. Imagine what will make you happy.

2. Give yourself an allotted time to ALL answer the questions about yourself that you’ve been asked during the interview process.

3. Do not allow yourself to beiki down. Don’t be the one who makes the mistakes. Avoid going back over a question to point out a flaw you could have answered earlier.

4. Don’t argue with the interviewer. Don’t bring your frustrations or emotions into the interview. If you disagree with something the interviewer is asking, don’t argue. Remember, it’s for goodness sake in not necessary to get mad. If you disagree, don’t bring it in to the interview. Remember, you need to be cooperative and you need to be credible.

5. When asked a bizarre question by the interviewer(s), refuse to answer (i.e. “What do you mean by that?” “I don’t really know.” “That’s not what I meant.” “What did you mean?” “I don’t know.”), and say nothing else except, smile, and smile.

6. Do not be affected by a negative environment (i.e. a negative staff member, customer, banker, contractor, etc.)and especially, do not let yourself be affected by a negative person or situation. An Offer You Can’t Refuse

7. Help the interviewer and maintain the rapport. Remain positive, professional, and courteous throughout.

8. Do not bring any personal problems or financial difficulties into the interview process.

9. ashift to the interviewer’s or panel’s advantage.

10. Smile. Save the mechanical “brute” facial expressions for your face while answering. If necessary, practice this with friends. An Offer You Can’t Refuse

11. Common Sense. Know how to answer “Tell me about yourself.” Know what the interviewer is looking for. Read your resume and ask yourself, “Can I tell you a problem I have that may be a factor in this interview?” Know the position so well that you can be hired without ever saying a word.

12. Your Word Association

Practice saying the first word of each sentence you hear. This accomplishes three things. 1.uses quick associations to draw the attention automatically,2. uses the first word to describe you, and3. associates the quality of your voice and your tone with the quality and position of the words you use.

13. Your Specific Competencies

Use specific examples, recognizing and emphasizing the skills that are required for each position you seek. Use examples of projects you have managed, projects with other organizations, subjects you have researched or wrote about.

14. Your Ability to Analyze

If you watch a politician, he or she will tell you that politicians are very good at expressing or representing what they believe to be true. analyze that which is not, research the issue, and register it in the category of the target of your Aim. You will tell them what you think they want to hear.

15. Your Productivity

Professionals are people who can fix things. analyze the problems, and they will tell you what is wrong. They will tell you what needs to be done. They are able to prioritize and make quick fixes. sell the problem, not the solution.

16. Your Honesty

Honesty is the best policy, especially when you have aphasia, ADD, adult-onset depression, or other difficulties. An Offer You Can’t Refuse
