How a talent specialist can widen your career opportunities

Achieving success in a competitive professional field requires leveraging the expert knowledge of a talent specialist who understands both you and your sector. Obtaining a position that puts your abilities to use and offers room for growth can be challenging, however. That’s why having an advocate familiar with the market, organization, and industry is essential for a successful career.   Differentiating yourself from other top professionals can be made easier with the assistance of a talent specialist. Their extensive knowledge of your market, personality, and skill set will enable them to determine the best job for you that matches your skills, culture, renumeration, and development goals.As most senior level roles are exclusively advertised within an organization’s internal network and their talent partner’s network, job boards can provide little more than useful resources to help you begin identifying opportunities and get a general feel for the market. Therefore, it is often the case that professionals with a highly sought-after skillset are approached for a well-matched position when they aren’t necessarily looking for one. So, by seeking the advice of a talent specialist when considering a career move, you will benefit from an expert match-making service within an internal network of hiring organizations, and receive timely, direct feedback. The talent specialist acts as a representative for both you and the hiring company, operating with an understanding that time is precious. They will help to improve the communication process, place you in a strong position to get the most from the opportunities presented, and ensure that the culture of the company you are interested in is aligned with your personality and requirements. After all, a top talent partner’s main goal isn’t to get you into a seat in the office, but to present you with an opportunity in which you can thrive long-term. The power of strong relationshipsA talent specialist will have a strong relationship with the hiring organization and may have even placed other professionals in previous roles, meaning they’ve built up a level of trust and understanding with the people who make up the business. This gives them leverage when advocating for you and provides you with information about the company that you need when making an important career decision. A strong talent partner will have made it their business to know the company inside out and will be able to tell you exactly what they are looking for, rather than giving you generic information that ends up wasting your time.Don’t be afraid to ask questions – a talent specialist is a great source of in-depth market knowledge, giving you access to current industry trends or changes, which can give you the edge should you need to tailor your resume and interview strategy to stand out from the competition.For future referenceNurturing a relationship with a talent specialist can help you secure a position with promising prospects. Even if you don’t find the perfect role on the first try, that relationship will mean you are kept in their mind and in their database for when the perfect opportunity does arise. From resume advice to salary guidance, a talent specialist can update you on the market and show you how to leverage that to find the right role. They can also actively network for non-advertised opportunities that best fit your career goals, while helping you enhance your resume or professional branding, so you are equipped to make a stellar first impression to a prospective employer. Networking with a specialist talent partner can also develop a long-term relationship for future opportunities. In years to come, when you are ready for the next step, that consultant will still understand you, your requirements, and the best next steps available to you. And for you, it’s always a plus to have a rapport with someone who’s helping to steer your future.Experts in the art of selectionTalent partners are selective by nature. Honing the skill over time, they hand-pick the most suitable roles for professionals seeking a new opportunity. Not only does this tailored approach maximize success for all parties involved, but it also helps professionals to recognize the potential in an opportunity they may not have considered on their own, while reducing the competition and creating a higher chance of success. Be open to networking with talent specialists when you may not be actively looking; the best opportunities can often pop up when you’re least expecting it.The inside scoopAt senior level, opportunities are not always advertised through traditional mediums. Specialist talent consultants are privy to a range of positions that only they and the organizations’ internal networks are aware of. This could be especially useful in situations where the vacancies that suit your skill set are few and far between.Leading businesses often utilize a talent partner because it’s a more efficient way for them to hire the right person. Therefore, rather than hunting for opportunities that may not be visible online, you could save considerable time working with a talent specialist.Working in your interestsApproaching a job search can be daunting, but a great talent partner offers a wealth of knowledge on the state of the current job market and your specific industry. Once they get to know you and what you’re looking for, their only objective is to place you in the role that is right for you. Once they have a clear idea of what you have to offer both professionally and personally, a talent partner can help you present a strong resume to any hiring company that meet your needs. It is therefore imperative to be open and honest with your talent specialist, taking the time to clearly define your needs and expectations.Liaising with a talent partner can help increase the efficiency of your search. When you succeed, they succeed, and so it’s important to remember that they are truly there to work in your best interests, with your long-term career trajectory in mind. In the same way that networking is often less effective if you just ramp up your activity when you want a job, reaching out to a talent specialist and building a relationship with them over time could help you secure better opportunities in the future.We partner closely with senior-level professionals with elite skillsets to enable their careers now and in the future. If you would like our help to find your next opportunity,  get in touch today.

​A job offer is a great accomplishment, especially if you have devoted a significant amount of effort to crafting resumes and cover letters, studying potential employers and positions, preparing for presentations, and attending interviews, especially for higher-level positions. However, before making a final commitment, there are some essential factors to contemplate.A job offer should be accepted with a mindful approach as your working day and even personal life will be profoundly impacted. Your commute length, the availability of leave, and the work-life balance of the job should all be carefully weighed. After all, the quality of your life is contingent on your decisions.Before accepting an offer, take a moment to consider the following: Will this role impact your finances, work-life balance, and future? This guide helps answer all these questions, which will help you when deciding whether to accept, reject, or negotiate the offer.Am I happy with the salary offered?One of the headline aspects of a job offer to be considered is the salary on the table. Depending on where you are in your career, your salary should reflect your capabilities and overall worth within the job market, and ideally at least 10% above your current salary package. Using websites such as Glassdoor and Payscale to research equivalent salaries can you help you ensure you’re getting offered the right amount. There are other important aspects to a job offer to consider, but if the salary is lower than expected, then you may need to enter negotiations. Though a lower base salary may be offered, overall salary may be supplemented through bonuses or commission. Perks such as subsidized health care and childcare may also be included in the package, creating a mutually beneficial deal.The role may offer you a salary that is initially disappointing but puts you on a guaranteed and exciting career track with a larger reward in the near future. Also, consider the satisfaction of the job if you are offered a big step-up in pay. What demands will this new role put on you? While an impressive new wage can be attractive, it may weigh lightly against the additional stress and pressure that comes from an increase in responsibility. It’s good to be challenged from a new role, but not at the expense of your long-term happiness, so it’s important to find the balance between financial compensation and quality of life.What are the benefits?Alongside the salary, look at the break down of benefits and perks offered by the new position. If these aren’t outlined fully in your job offer, request the full details from the hiring manager. Some companies offer bumper benefits packages, which can be considered as valuable as your initial salary package. Look at the following benefits when evaluating a job offer: Annual leave - is there a generous allowance for paid time away from the office? Does the role have a good pension? What is the employer contribution to your pension? How good is the health insurance provided by the company? What does it cover, specifically? Does the role provide large money-saving perks, such as a company car, subsidized childcare, or paid memberships?How will the role affect my work-life balance?​Work-life balance is extremely important not only to your happiness, but also to your health, relationships, and even your success within your role. Consider the responsibilities of the role - are the day-to-day tasks stimulating and satisfying to you? Do they encompass the positive aspects of your previous role where you experienced success and growth? Will they challenge you to develop new skills/areas of expertise or are the tasks simply outside of your expertise or interests? Think about how the job will slot into your life, and how much control you will have over your work-life balance within the role. ​A large element to consider is whether the role offers flexible working, which may be particularly important if you have children. A role that allows employees to build their hours around their family obligations and provides regular opportunities to work from home can be far more appealing than a role that pays more but provides no flexibility. The commute also needs to be considered when evaluating a role for work-life balance. Is the role in a hard-to-reach location? Will you be dealing with daily traffic jams? Is the role reachable by public transport? How much will the commute cost in train tickets or petrol and parking? A job that requires a lot of travel can be exciting but can have a negative impact on your work-life balance as it can be tiring, costly, and time-consuming. If a lot of the role is spent ‘on the road’, you will need to consider how this will affect your quality of life long-term.​Am I a good cultural fit?​Hopefully, during your application and interview process, you will have had a taste of the company culture at your potential new organization. Review the business’s employer branding materials, their social media accounts, and testimonials on sites such as Glassdoor for more information. Your work environment is one of the most important factors to consider when deciding whether to accept a job offer. You will be spending around 40 hours a week there, so think carefully about whether that prospect makes you excited or anxious. Regardless of the job title, salary, or perks, accepting a job offer from a company where you will be glad to spend your time is what’s most important to your health and happiness.​Lean into your intuition and consider any potential red flags you may have identified. In some instances, it may be appropriate to request another visit to the office to talk to team members before saying ‘yes’ to the offer, or you may request another more informal chat with your manager to ask any lingering cultural questions. This may help you to get a good sense of the types of personalities within the company, and find out how the office operates and where you would fit in. Are teams encouraged to work collaboratively, or do they tend to work as individuals? Is there good camaraderie within the team? How do they support each other? Ask for examples to get the best understanding. ​Can I work well with my peers?​The people you work with, and indeed those you report to, can make or break a role. It is vital to your overall enjoyment of your job that you are working with people who bring out the best in you, as well as a team that will be receptive to your attempts to bring something new and beneficial to the company.​When considering a job offer, try to find out who you will be reporting to and who will be reporting to you. It is likely that the former will have been involved in the hiring process, but if you haven’t met them, you may want to arrange a meeting or a phone call to discover more about their leadership style while you consider a job offer. Ask what would be expected of you in terms of delivery and performance and run through a typical week within your team. If the ideas and working style of those around and above you don’t run alongside your own you may want to reconsider taking the job offer and keep on looking.​Does it advance my career?​You’re already on the job hunt, so your career progression will naturally be on your mind at this point. You may have an offer for a role that advances your career immediately, but the move could be a bad decision in the long term. Does the current job offer allow for further growth of your skills and talents? Or are you moving into a position that may lack the challenge you need in order to develop? It’s a good idea to investigate the training and networking opportunities provided by the role. Do you have time in your role to learn new skills, or attend sector conferences that will keep you informed of trends in the market? Does the business have a budget reserved for career development and further education of its employees? ​LinkedIn is a good website to research this. You can look into the career paths of current and former employees and see how those within the company have progressed either internally or through new roles. You may want to reconsider a job offer for a role where there is little progression or growth, or from a company that has no immediate growth plans, or any career development programs. On the other hand, you may wish to include this in your negotiation process.​Am I happy I got the job?​Now that you have considered the salary, the benefits, your work-life balance, the culture, your colleagues, and your career development goals, the final element to consider is your general ‘gut feeling’ when it comes to considering the job offer. Are you ecstatic to get the offer, or do you have your reservations? If you are reading this, there’s probably a reason you are taking your time to make a decision. Of course, there may be more personal factors at play that may incentivize you to accept a role quickly, but it is worth taking your time to consider how the prospect of starting this new position truly makes you feel. ​No job offer will be perfect, but it is important to trust your gut when an offer comes through, even if it just sparks some more honest negotiations. If you are unhappy with the lack of flexibility within the role or have doubts about opportunities for development, it may be better in the long-term to turn down the offer. Trust your instinct and intuition. If something is telling you taking the role is a bad idea, write up a list of pros and cons and weigh them up. ​Moving jobs is a big decision that affects many aspects of your life and steers your future. If you are unsure, it is always worth speaking to a trusted advisor, like our specialist consultants at LVI Associates, who will guide you through every step of the process.

How to get the most out of a long and challenging interview process

​Interviewing, particularly for senior-executive level positions, will often entail a rigorous process that includes a lot of prep, energy, and tough technical questions to assess if you have the necessary skills and knowledge to tackle the role. In certain instances, you may even be invited to attend an all-day interview, which entails multiple rounds of exchanges with stakeholders and HR managers to determine how your skillset and character might fit into the company. This type of interview is of course intended to challenge you in a variety of ways, but while it can be tough, it is a valuable experience and an opportunity to get to know the company and the people who make it.If you are called to one of these marathon interviews, it’s important to set yourself up for success in advance, which doesn’t just mean pouring over interview questions and company information. Taking care of yourself both mentally and physically in the run up to such an exciting but demanding opportunity is equally as important as preparing your answers in that fatigue and stress can quickly derail your efforts. This article will guide you to set yourself up for a positive outcome when approaching a long and challenging interview process, whether it’s a job offer or a valuable experience to carry with you for next time. The full pictureBeing called for an interview is a great feeling. It affirms that your resume has hit the mark and that the hiring manager wants to find out more about what you have to offer. The interview itself can challenge you in ways you might not have expected, and in some cases can be a long and demanding process both mentally and physically, but it’s important to remember that if you’re not being challenged, the role might not offer you the right level of growth and development that will keep you fulfilled. Essentially, it’s not supposed to be a breeze.In particular, the idea of an all-day interview can be extremely intimidating, and a certain level of nerves can be a good thing. Single interviews are challenging in their own way, but are typically over in about an hour, while an all-day interview is an entirely different ball game involving meeting with several senior stakeholders within a company to gain different perspectives on your suitability. Depending on the role you are applying for, all-day interviews can come in a range of formats. For example, they may involve a mixture of exercises relevant to your role, plus general tests to check your culture fit, such as personality and IQ tests. This means that you are being tested on things that you can prepare for and traits that are innate to you. Therefore, while reading up on information that can support your professional assessment is one way to prepare, you’ll also need to start the day well rested and calm in order to present the best version of the full picture. Be prepared These interview processes are designed to push you out of your comfort zone and so preparation will be your greatest ally to help you keep your cool and put your best foot forward. Your potential new employers are attempting to gain a full picture of what you are about, from your skills and experience to your attitude and cultural fit and so however talented, experienced, and confident you are in your fit for the role, there will be elements of the process that will challenge you, demanding thorough preparation. Here are some tips to help you to prepare before you walk through the door. Request a scheduleThis is vital in terms of mentally preparing for an all-day interview. Knowing how the day will be laid out will help you get into the headspace of what is expected from you, helping to keep you calm and avoiding anything that might throw you off. You may have four very long interviews, or twelve very short interviews. Whatever the format, you need to make sure you are mentally prepared for what you are facing, and pace yourself around those all-important breaks. Request this a few days before your interview to give the employer time to check everyone’s schedules. Find out the names and job titles of each of your interviewersLook up their LinkedIn pages and find out their experience and expertise, and what relationship they may have with you if you win the position. If they are thought leaders, read their articles and blogs to find out their views on your industry. Researching your interviewers means you can find out how you can relate to them both personally and professionally, which will make them easier to engage with on the day. Prepare questions for your employer A day-long interview is an opportunity for you to get an impression of the institution you are hoping to work for from several angles. Think of all the information you want to gain from the different interviews and ensure you have prepared questions to ask each of them. This also takes the pressure off yourself during each interview and allows for breathing space. And in addition, your interviewers will appreciate the variation in conversation. Gather your examples and stories Prepare some notes on your most notable career achievements. Numbers work best, particularly if you’re short on time, so if your department contributed to a 20% increase in revenue, keep that number in mind. Think of your best and most impactful anecdotes, too - an example of a successful negotiation, a challenge where you were the lead problem solver, a project you managed from conception to launch. And don’t forget to let your personality shine through when telling your story as a good company will be looking for a good mix of skills and character.Stay refreshed The demanding nature of the all-day interview means you need to plan ahead and make sure you are equipped with the right items to keep you feeling fresh and help you stay mentally focused until the end. In most cases you will be offered plenty of chances to hydrate throughout the day, bring a flask of water or coffee is a good idea and will help you to stay alert. Much like a real marathon, these days require stamina, so plan your fuel to keep your brain sharp and keep your energy up between interviews. Choose healthy yet filling snacks like granola bars or fruit and avoid a sugar rush as the slump will be sure to follow. Also, be careful with caffeine. If you rely on it, regulate your coffee throughout the day to avoid any crashes in the afternoon.Having a mid-day freshen up can work wonders for your energy and focus. Packing sanitary items such as hand/face wipes, deodorant/perfume, and mouthwash may give you the reset you need, particularly after food and coffee, and will help to send you into the second half of the day feeling more awake. In addition, packing a comb or hairbrush will help you to remain presentable, which will make you feel better, too.It may be tempting to sit and scroll on your phone in between interviews, but getting fresh air and going for a walk, if you can, will help keep you mentally clear. Gentle physical exercise keeps your blood flowing, prevents tiredness and is the best way to keep fatigue at bay. Try to take a proper break without speculation and analysis of how the day is going. Your brain can’t work at full speed all day - try to slow it down and give it a rest before it goes back into full speed at the next interview. Meditation is known as a hugely beneficial practice in instances like these.Approach each interview consistently It is natural that you will exhibit both strengths and weaknesses throughout the day, and it can be difficult to approach the final interviews with the same energy as the first, but it is vital you remain consistent. Keep in mind that even though this is a marathon for you, your meeting with each interviewer is a stand-alone hour or two for them, so try to keep up with pace. Remember to shake the hand of each interviewer, introduce yourself, and be prepared to repeat yourself a few times throughout the day, however tiring it may seem. End each interview on a positive note about how you are excited to interview for the position, reiterate why you believe you are the ideal date, and that you look forward to hearing from them. However, keep in mind that your interviewers will be comparing notes, so avoid telling the same story and highlighting the same achievements during each interview, or you may risk giving the impression that your experience is more limited than it is. During your research process, think of the best information you have which will be relevant for each position. For example, the Head of Marketing may be engaged with examples where you have shown creativity or solved problems, whereas a sales director will be more interested in figures and percentages. A HR figure will be more interested to hear about your management skills, or a story about dealing with a difficult employee. Again, preparation is key.Stay on your A game Everyone is in the same boat over the course of an all-day interview. Talking for hours in a high-stakes situation can be mentally exhausting, and a mix of anxiety and disinterest can creep in, which is only natural regardless of how passionately you want the job offer. After the initial rush of your first interview, you may be facing fatigue, while your intention was to remain positive, confident, and enthusiastic throughout the day. A good way to avoid showing signs of fatigue during later interviews is to be mindful of your body language. Keep in mind that you should be enthusiastic with your gestures; lean forward towards your interviewer and show your passion for what you do through how you move as well as what you say. If you’re tired towards the end of the day, try to avoid speaking flatly and don’t forget to remain sitting up straight, as this will make you both appear and feel alert and passionate about the topic. The majority of all-day interviews will include a break for lunch mid-way through. Not only is this a chance to get a preview of the company canteen and how people interact during their break, it’s also the perfect opportunity to socialize with your possible new co-workers in an informal setting. Though you may need to refresh, you may also view your lunch break as another kind of interview relating to your cultural and personality fit. Your interviewers will be taking note of your social manner, and whether you are easy to communicate with. It is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and discover more about the company in a more casual setting.Make notes before calling it a day​Remember how you took notes during each interview? At the end of a marathon interview day, you will likely feel completely spent. But don’t give in immediately. Make yourself sit down at your computer or take notes longhand about the points your interviewers emphasized. It’s great if you can be organized about this, but stream of consciousness is fine too, if that’s all you can muster. This is a way to debrief yourself while the information is fresh. Finally, use this to send a personalized email to each interviewer the same day, and thank them by reflecting on something about your conversation and express continued interest. ​These are sure-fired ways to increase your chances of successfully getting through to the next stage, and one step closer to your dream job. ​For more advice on how to successfully navigate your way through a marathon interview process, our expert team at LVI Associates is here to help.

Acing your interview

Now that you are this outstanding applicant who received an interview opportunity. Be prepared and get ready to ace your interview with the below tips at the different stages:Pre-interviewDuring the interviewPost-interview​Pre-interviewResearch the prospective company.Bring your portfolio and any work samples.Be proactive and prepare in advance any questions to ask the hiring manager:We have previously mentioned that tenure is important for companies. Leverage the Q&A session to demonstrate that you are looking to build your career with the new employer. Ask questions about the company and their career plan for you. Check if the company has any mentorship programs to help progress your career and if there are any mentors/role models to learn from. Find out if the company has any equity scheme for employees. Asking the right questions can help convey your desire to have a long-term career with the company you’re interviewing for. ​During the interview​Explaining gaps in a CV It’s important to be transparent. According to a survey from LinkedIn, 96% of hiring managers will still hire someone who has been made redundant due to Covid-19, so don’t be afraid to share this information.  An interview is the opportunity to tell your story and get to know the hiring manager. Be prepared to share what you have achieved during time off – that can be independent consulting work, enhancing your skillsets (technical/software skills) or advancing your learning.   ​Salary - How to avoid overselling or underselling?​Step 1Identify what is important to you before heading into the interview, whether that is a higher salary, better benefits, or flexibility at work. That will impact your salary expectation.Step 2Always try to avoid answering this question. But how? Instead, reply with:"I have a full understanding of your company and the role. I would like to think/speak to my family before I come back to you by tomorrow.”"If you have never received a job description, “Can you please share the job description with me so that I can better gate the salary expectation for a role like this?”“I am looking for a salary that is reflective of my skillset. What would someone with a similar background in your company receive?”Step 3Do not give a salary range – the last thing you want is to be on the bottom rank. Give a number that you feel is feasible and competitive in the market. Currently, the market salary increment average is around 3%-6%. Opening a discussion about flexible/hybrid workWe highly advise to not discuss working from home or flexible working arrangements in the first interview. With interview processes usually around 2-3 rounds, the 2nd or final interview will be the best time to ask about flexible work arrangements. ​Rather than asking directly, you could reframe a question to “What are the current working arrangements for the team?” or “Is the current team mostly working from the office”. By rephrasing the questions, this can come across as an expression of interest for the working style and how the team operates instead of demanding the right to work from home.​Working from home or flexible work is a fairly new concept. If the arrangements have been agreed, it’s important to get this included in the contract or have written confirmation in an email when the offer letter is sent.   The must-ask question: why are you leaving your current company? It’s crucial not to speak badly about your current or ex-employers. Always turn it back into positive, you could say something along the lines of: “Everything is fine and pretty good in my current/previous company. I am looking to move because your company is the leader in the market. I want to learn from the best leader to broaden my horizon and further expand my skill set to grow within your company.” Use your research, “I want to be part of this new project that your company is doing. I believe my skill set can add value to the team/project.”  By answering smartly, it shows:You are really interested in the company.You are passionate about what they do.You are knowledgeable about the market.You have done the research and you know about their company. Post-interview Always follow up – drop a note to share your gratitude and connect with a hiring manager on LinkedIn. It’s advantageous for a hiring manager to remember you so you can establish a relationship – which is useful for referrals.​Ready?
