    Bringing Your Whole Self to Work with Scott Behson

    Bringing Your Whole Self to Work with Scott Behson

    console.debug('TRINITY_WP', 'Skip player from rendering', 'is single: , is main loop: 1, is main query: 1');console.debug('TRINITY_WP', 'trinity_content_filter');Welcome to the ninth year of “The Voice of Job Seekers.” Thank you for making this podcast a staple in your career and life, and many career professionals use it as a resource for their clients and students.

    What company matches your values? What company show they care about their employees? How did your company pivot to ensure your employees’ success during the pandemic? Job candidates care about being accepted wholly at work. Are employers creating a workplace where everyone is accepted?

    Scott Behson has been on my podcast several times since 2016. On Amazon, his book, “The Whole-Person Workplace: Building Better Workplaces Through Work-Life, Wellness, and Employee Support,” will be out on Aug. 17, 2021. He wrote the book to suggest to employers how they can adjust to the new world of work. You can also read the entire show transcript here.

    You are more than welcome to join the discussion. Here are three ways you can:

    – Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number

    – Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message

    – Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com

    About Scott: 

    Scott Behson is a professor of management at Fairleigh Dickinson University. He has a doctorate in Organizational Studies and blogs at Fathers, Work, and Family. He is a regular contributor to the Harvard Business Review, Time, Wall Street Journal.

    Discussion highlights:



    * He says the book addresses the question, “…how can employers managers, HR types build better workplaces that work for everybody and help employees in their whole lives? Like recognizing that they’re not just like, they don’t just exist from nine to five. And they don’t have a piece of themselves at work. Like they’re a whole person.”

    * Since this is the era of #TheGreatResignation, people realize their dissatisfaction is with their workplace conditions affecting how life is lived.

    *  We can no longer treat our careers as a separate part of our lives.

    * We must manage and control how our careers influence our lives and how our lives interact with our careers.

    * Scott also asks, “How do we make sure that this whole person who works for me is, is okay, is well, is not stressed and anxious?

    * And we can maybe help them with some of their responsibilities, priorities stressors, challenges they face in their lives.”

    Job Search Is Still a Life Style – The Mission

    Job Search Is Still a Life Style – The Mission

    Throughout the pandemic, I did a few guest podcast appearances, spoke a few times at events, co-host two live stream shows (well over 30 shows), and a lot of writing. My mission is clear: Help as many job seekers find jobs. I want to share part of this journey with you as the job search is constantly changing without an end in sight.

    But, as far as “The Voice of Job Seekers,” I will be on hiatus until Sept 12.

    I decided to publish a montage of my appearances on podcasts and live streams.

    If you like my message and mission, sign up for the free e-book, and join the secret Facebook group and the Saturday meet-up. But you can only participate in the FREE meet-up if you sign up for the e-book (oh yeah, you get a newsletter, too).

    Here are the shows and the links where you can listen or view the entire show so that you’ll hear the shows (the pictures above are not in order):

    The Modern Mindset to Get More Job interviews

    The Modern Mindset to Get More Job interviews

    console.debug('TRINITY_WP', 'Skip player from rendering', 'is single: , is main loop: 1, is main query: 1');console.debug('TRINITY_WP', 'trinity_content_filter');Many of you want to do more interviews than one every now and then or every few months. If you’re scarcely getting interviews, this show provides a few strategies to do so as well as finding remote work. As many of you know I co-host a LinkedIn Live with friend and mentor, Damian Birkel. He had an emergency this week so I recruited Claudia Miller to be a guest co-host for an episode.

    You are more than welcome to join the discussion. Here are three ways you can:

    – Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number

    – Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message

    – Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com

    More about Claudia Miller:

    She is the host of Roadmap to the Executive Suite, a show for Driven professional women who want to learn how to accelerate in their careers and be in leadership positions (Director, Sr. Director, VP, C-Suite, etc) and want to learn how to navigate the space both professionally and personally. You can download her podcast from all major podcast directories.

    Here are some highlights from our discussion:

    Here are a few highlights of the show:

    🤓 How to find remote work jobs without them being advertised as such

    🤓 We helped one of our listeners, Debria, with some interview advice

    🤓 Job search and the mobile experience. Being able to job search only using the phone

    🤓 The importance of updating your resume and customizing it to positions

    🤓 Is a visual resume necessary? Is it the future? Both Claudia and I weighed in.

    You can also watch the show on YouTube or if you want to see more than one of  “The Moder Job Search Checklist” LinkedIn.

    The last show will live on May 18 as a montage of a few of my guest appearances on other podcasts since last September. Those of you who subscribe to the newsletter will also have access to the Job Lab this summer and the live sessions. If you want to catch the LinkedIn live stream shows, be sure to connect with my profile.

    The new series of podcasts will begin on September 14.

    The Job Seeker Nation Report 2021 by Jobvite

    The Job Seeker Nation Report 2021 by Jobvite

    console.debug('TRINITY_WP', 'Skip player from rendering', 'is single: , is main loop: 1, is main query: 1');console.debug('TRINITY_WP', 'trinity_content_filter');

    I know some of you enjoy reading the “Job Seeker Nation” yearly reports from Jobvite. The report will help job seekers with their selection of tools to use to reach employers and appeal to recruiters and employers among other intel to inform their job search.



    I hosted on behalf of my LinkedIn live stream show, “#JobSeekerNation”  the two people who worked on the report on my LinkedIn live stream Amber Ferrari, Marketing Manager, Communications and Sales Support, and Kerry Gilliam, VP of Marketing at Jobvite, as guests to talk about the 2021 report released last week.







    I encourage you to download the report.  You can watch the video on LinkedIn or my YouTube channel.







    You are more than welcome to join the discussion. Here are three ways you can:

    – Call and leave a voicemail at 708-365-9822, or text your comments to the same number

    – Go to TheVoiceofJobSeekers.com, press the “Send Voicemail” button on the right side of your screen and leave a message

    – Send email feedback to mark@thevoiceofjobseekers.com





    The report covers many areas.



    A few of them you might find interest in:



    How job seekers shifted and pivoted to find jobs

    Why were some job seekers were unsuccessful and their challenges

    The new job search includes remote working and those who are ready to go back to the office

    How are recruiters working with potential candidates

    How more job seekers are desiring to work for companies truly promoting and changing to a diverse working culture







    Here a few results of their survey that interested me:



    Nearly 1 in every 3 workers report that they or someone in their immediate family have gone without food for 24 hours in the past month due to a lack of food or money.

    Workers with children (49%) are most concerned with losing a job.

    53% of surveyed workers have or plan to have a second source of income outside of their current job, compared to 36% in February 2020.

    Employers need to embrace COVID-19 safety measures and diversity initiatives, as both significantly influence workers’ decisions to accept or reject a job.

    The pandemic has led to longer workdays, with signs showing it’s affecting employees’ well-being.

    Recruiters should consider how lack of access to adequate technology or Wi-Fi negatively impacts a worker’s participation in a video interview.

    42% would reject a job offer if the company lacked diversity or clear goals for improving diversity in hiring.







    These were very eye-opening and concerning stats as we as career professionals need to understand the conditions of the people who seek us out for help. While some or mildly affected or unaffected by the economic impact, many more are affected by the mental health concerns exposed by the pandemic.





    Two more shows left in this season of the podcast. I will continue to bring you help on LinkedIn with my shows, the bi-weekly newsletter (and the Job Lab for newsletter subscribers only), and the articles.



    On May 4, my guest will be Claudia T. Miller, career coach, and May 18 will be a montage of my guest appearances on other podcasts since last September.

    May 4

    What Changed in Job Search in the Last Few Years

    console.debug('TRINITY_WP', 'Skip player from rendering', 'is single: , is main loop: 1, is main query: 1');console.debug('TRINITY_WP', 'trinity_content_filter');Well, this was a show takeover.



    That’s right. For the first time since I published the show, you will not hear my voice. Not even in the intro.



    It’s just one episode. It’s not a mistake.



    Job Search Secret Weapon has taken over one episode. I’ll forgo the usual jargon for this show only. Let me introduce these women who are fervently at work serving job seekers with high-quality services and content. They will offer solid job search advice while parsing the trends of the times.



    Job Search Secret Weapon: 



    Virginia Franco is the founder of Virginia Franco Resumes and a five-time award-winning executive resume writer.  She is also the host of her podcast, “Resume Storyteller.” She is also a past president of the National Association of Resume Writers.



    Sarah Johnston, the founder of the Briefcase Coach, is helping many job seekers with their resume writing, LinkedIn strategy, job search strategy, and interview preparation. She is a past “LinkedIn Top Voice” for careers and job search.



    Adrienne Tom is the founder of Career Impressions: Executive Resume Writing and Job Search Strategies and is a 31x award-winning resume writer and “LinkedIn Top Voice 2020” for careers and job search.



    Highlights from their conversation: 



    Build on a target list. Doing 20 to 40 hours of market research to set up for success. Think thoroughly about every possibility.



    Different is better than better. What can you differently from your competition?



    6 of 10 users use LinkedIn for industry insights.



    Job search is a muscle you’ll need to work on and strengthen constantly.



    Professionals are now changing jobs every two to four years.



    Soft skills and transferable jobs are critical right now in changing industries.



    Bridge jobs are also used to help transition to your next career change. It helps you stay fresh and meet people.



    Consider how you position your story around your bridge job and how you’ll use it to change.



    Clubhouse is evolving and useful to meet people.



    Customization of your resume is no longer an option. “It’s a must.”



    Be ready to address how you did during the pandemic. Show you were resilient and persevered.
