Doers: 19 | Form: Session | Phase: Preparation | Type: Pre-Event | Level: 2 | Code:
Start: Jun 25, 2017 | When: | Duration: 1 Day
Elements for Task 1: ( element | product | description | amt )
  • Applied psychology : Nonfiction : Self Help | Your Right Job Right Now | | 1 Each
Task 1 of 7: Don't Overthink it
  • Steps | Documentation | Messages (0)
  • Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: Foundation | Type: Event | Level: 1 | Duration: 1 Hour
  • You are about to go through the most successful training in how to get a job offer that anyone has ever experienced.

    The person who inspired this training is June Gregory, perhaps the world's greatest career counselor and authority on interviewing.

    For over 20 years I worked for and was mentored by June. During that time I observed and conducted thousands of interviews. I had a front row seat in seeing who gets job offers and who doesn't and why. That said, one of the most remarkable discoveries I made is this:

    THERE IS A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW TO EXCEL AT INTERVIEWING...ABOUT 1% TO BE PRECISE. THESE ARE THE WORLD'S BEST INTERVIEWEES

    My first question for you is: in all honesty, how motivated are you to become one of those people?
    response:
  • If you answered 'A Great Deal' then this isoBlog is for you. Proceed directly to Step 3 now.

    If you chose one of the other answers, this isoBlog is not for you at this time. To become one the World's Best Interviewees, it is absolutely essential that is means a great deal to you to become one. Unfortunately, there is simply no way to fake your way around this criteria. Trust me, without this desire, doing this isoBlog will be a waste of your time. You may get the head knowledge, but you will not be able to properly apply the Steps in an interview when it counts. In other words, you will gain little to nothing.

    Stop this isoBlog now, but feel free to return anytime you like.
    response:
  • Besides being truly motivated, you will need to answer one more question before you begin your training:

    This isoBlog has been designed to allow you to duplicate the exact same attitudes, motives, behaviors and, most importantly, the RESULTS of the World's Best Interviewees. Like a GPS for interviewing, this isoBlog will guide you, step-by-step, so that you will not only know what this 1% DO, but how to DO it yourself.

    When it comes to interviewing, these Steps are going to give you a competitive advantage over every other candidate competing for the job you want. That means 'Your Right Job, Right Now'.

    However, to gain this advantage, you must DO each Step. If you attempt to cut corners by thinking about a Step instead of DOING it, you will fail. And, 'No', you are not the exception.

    Do you agree to give each Step everything you've got and to not cut corners when you are tempted to do so?
    response:
  • If you answered 'Yes' proceed directly to Step 5.

    If you answered 'No', stop this isoBlog now. Feel free to return whenever you are ready.
    response:
  • Let's begin with a few facts about The World's Best Interviewees:

    Their approach to interviewing is always alike.

    Their approach runs contrary to the advice of many experts and certainly that of the other 99% of interviewees.

    They get the job offers they want almost without fail.

    Now, are you ready to DO your first action Step?
    response:
  • Its time for you to meet the top authority on interviewing, my boss June.

    From the book 'Your Right Job Right Now', click on the word 'documentation' (in light blue) located just under the title of this task or go to the book and read the chapter titled: 'Jennifer's Prep Session: How to Interview with Confidence'.

    Select 'successful' when you are finished. (Note: 'Your Right Job Right Now' is available on Amazon.)
    response:
  • In the chapter, June gives us the First Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees:

    THERE IS NOTHING TO THINK ABOUT, WORRY ABOUT OR ANALYZE UNTIL YOU HAVE AN ACTUAL JOB OFFER.

    Do you agree with June's simple point of logic?
    response:
  • Regarding the First Rule, June goes on to explain:

    "Great Interviewees understand this simple point of logic and bring their highest hopes and expectations to the interview. They bring a genuine enthusiasm--just in case the interview turns out to be the opportunity of a lifetime."

    What's the connection between this First Rule and your ability bring a 'genuine enthusiasm' to your next interview?
    response:
  • Why is it so important to bring genuine enthusiasm to every interview you go on?
    response:
  • On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to bring your 'highest hopes' to an interview?
    response:
  • What can you do in your next interview to raise that number? Be specific.
    response:
  • Here's your action item: contact a trusted friend and explain to them the First Rule of the World's Best Interviewees.

    The key to this step is to practice bringing genuine enthusiasm to your explanation. Let your friend know how you will be applying this rule to your next interview.

    Are you willing to give this step everything you've got?
    response:
  • Congratulations, you have completed the first Task in this Session.

    Proceed to the next Task below or go to your 'Scheduler' and select the date(s) you wish to continue this isoBlog.
    response:
Elements for Task 2: ( element | product | description | amt )
  • Applied psychology : Nonfiction : Self Help | Your Right Job Right Now | | 1 Each
Task 2 of 7: Leave Your Fears At The Door
  • Steps | Documentation | Messages (0)
  • Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: Foundation | Type: Event | Level: 1 | Duration: 2 Hour
  • June explains that in order to bring genuine enthusiasm to the interview, you must first identify your fears.

    Jennifer identifies her fear as "the fear of failing".

    What are your fears and insecurities? Or, to put it another way, what reason(s) do you think a company would give for NOT hiring you?
    response:
  • The Second Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees is:

    LEAVE YOUR FEARS AT THE DOOR

    Are you ready to learn how to apply this rule?
    response:
  • June explains:

    "...if I was interviewing for a job, I would make a deal with myself that I would not allow myself to feel insecure about my weight problem. I would keep that up for the entire interview. As soon as the interview was over I could go back to my insecurities but, during the interview, I would not give anyone the pleasure of seeing my fears.”

    Are you prepared to make a similar deal with yourself?
    response:
  • June leaves her fears at the door by asking herself a simple question:

    "Would I want to work for a company who wouldn't hire me just because I'm __________?

    In the space provided, fill in the blank by writing down your fears and/or insecurities from Step 1.
    response:
  • Having filled in the blank, ask yourself the question in Step 4.

    How would you answer that, 'Yes' or 'No'?
    response:
  • If you answered 'No', you now see how you can be completely free from worrying about what companies, who you wouldn't want to work for in the first place, think about your weaknesses or insecurities.

    If you answered 'Yes', continue to ask yourself why you would want to work for a company that would treat people in such a negative manner!
    response:
  • In all honesty, write down what you would like to hear most from a potential employer. Here are some examples:

    A) "You will make a lot of money..."
    B) "You will grow quickly..."
    C) "Your hours will be flexible..."
    D) "You will have job security..."
    E) "You can have your own company some day..."
    F) "You can work from home..."
    G) "You can expect to be treated with respect...."
    response:
  • Do you understand the power certain words and promises have over you?
    response:
  • Do you agree with June that in an interview "words don't mean a thing"?
    response:
  • June tells Jennifer:

    "When you live in fear you attract exactly what you are afraid of."

    Write down why, if you don't do the difficult day-by-day work of overcoming your fears, you will attract what you are most afraid of.
    response:
  • Do you agree 'learning to leave your fears at the door' is a good way to overcome the power your fears have over you?
    response:
  • Post in community, share track, call, email or Facebook a friend and explain to them the importance of 'leaving your fears and concerns at the door'.

    Select 'successful' when you are finished, then proceed to the next Task in this Session.

    (Note: this Session contains 7 Tasks. If you wish to DO any of the following Tasks over the course of more than one day, go to your 'scheduler' and schedule this isoBlog to coincide with your timeframe.)
    response:
Elements for Task 3: ( element | product | description | amt )
  • Applied psychology : Nonfiction : Self Help | Your Right Job Right Now | | 1 Each
Task 3 of 7: Get Focused
  • Steps | Documentation | Messages (0)
  • Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: Foundation | Type: Event | Level: 1 | Duration: 1 Hour
  • Jennifer confesses to June:

    "I think I was so caught up in my own worries, to be honest the only thing I was thinking about was what they could do for me. I didn't even stop to think what I could do for them..."

    In your past interviews, how often was your focus more on what the company could do for you, than what you could do for the company?
    response:
  • The Third Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees is:

    GET FOCUSED ON WHAT THE COMPANY IS LOOKING FOR NOT ON WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR FROM THE COMPANY

    Based on your past interviews, how would you rate your ability to focus more on what the company was looking for than your own needs and desires?
    response:
  • In the chapter, June uses the metaphor of the waiter to teach Jennifer the power of being 'focused' in her interview.

    Have you experienced a waiter going on and on over menu options that you were completely uninterested in?
    response:
  • Conversely, have you ever had a waiter that seems to know exactly what you wanted?
    response:
  • How did your impressions and opinions of the two waiters differ?
    response:
  • What did you learn from this metaphor and why is it so important to becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees?
    response:
  • Do you realize that by just doing a little research, you can usually find out exactly what the company is looking for before the interview?
    response:
  • What actions can you take before your next interview to get focused (to be a good waiter)? Be specific.
    response:
  • How will those actions demonstrate to the company that you are more focused on what you can do for them than what they can do for you?
    response:
  • Post in community, share track, call, email or Facebook someone you know and 'teach' them what you just learned about the Third Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees.

    Select 'successful' when you have completed this Step, then proceed to the next Task in this Session.

    (Note: this Session contains 7 Tasks. If you wish to DO any of the following Tasks over the course of more than one day, go to your 'scheduler' and schedule this isoBlog to coincide with your timeframe.)
    response:
Elements for Task 4: ( element | product | description | amt )
  • Applied psychology : Nonfiction : Self Help | Your Right Job Right Now | | 1 Each
Task 4 of 7: Bring Your Best Self
  • Steps | Documentation | Messages (0)
  • Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: Foundation | Type: Event | Level: 1 | Duration: 1 Hour
  • In all honesty, how confident are you that you will be the best interviewee for the next job you apply for?
    response:
  • From the book 'Your Right Job Right Now', click on the word 'documentation' (in light blue) located just under the title of this task or go to the book and read the chapter titled: 'Carolyn's Big Chance: Be Where You Are Going'.

    Select 'successful' when you are finished. (Note: 'Your Right Job Right Now' is available on Amazon.)
    response:
  • The Fourth Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees is:

    BRING YOUR BEST SELF TO THE INTERVIEW

    In the space provided, write down what it means to bring your 'best self' to an interview.
    response:
  • In the chapter, June tells Carolyn:

    "Bringing your best self to an interview is a similar experience to trying on an evening gown for the first time. At first, it feels unnatural. That sense of 'this is not the real me'. But wait 10 to 15 minutes and...it begins to fell comfortable."

    If you are at home, go to your closet right now and put on your very best interviewing outfit. Dress and get ready as though you were going to interview for your ideal job! Take as much time as you need.

    Select 'successful' when you have returned fully dressed and prepared.
    response:
  • If you completed Step 4, proceed directly to Step 6 now.

    If you are at home and decided to skip Step 4 or to do it later, you just missed an opportunity to act like one of The World's Best Interviewees.

    Expert interviewees have genuine inner confidence, not head knowledge. They gain this inner confidence by being willing to take risks where others won't. Take a risk. Don't let your lack of belief and motivation get the best of you. Don't tell yourself that you will 'do it later'. The time for your right job is now, today. Go do it.
    response:
  • June tells Carolyn that when it comes to being a great interviewer, you have to "be where you are going".

    What does "be where you are going" mean?
    response:
  • Write down your vision of, ideally, who you see yourself becoming.

    Note: in capturing this vision, try to see yourself separate from the specific job you are doing, money you are making or what other people think of you.
    response:
  • According to June, in order to make the right career decisions, how important is it to "bring your best self to the interview"?
    response:
  • Do you agree?
    response:
  • At least once a day, are you willing to choose a time and place to practice bringing your 'best self' to a situation (conversation, meeting, coffee shop, etc)?
    response:
  • If you completed Step 4, a short period of time has passed since you put on your best outfit. Describe any effect wearing this outfit has had on you.

    For example, how did you feel when you first put it on? How do you feel now?
    response:
  • Again, rate your current level of confidence that you will be the best interviewee for the next job you apply for, then proceed to the next Task in this Session.

    (Note: this Session contains 7 Tasks. If you wish to DO any of the following Tasks over the course of more than one day, go to your 'scheduler' and schedule this isoBlog to coincide with your timeframe.)

Task 5 of 7: Great Leadership Is The Top Priority
  • Steps | Messages (0)
  • Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: Foundation | Type: Event | Level: 1 | Duration: 15 Minute
  • Describe your ideal job. Be specific.
    response:
  • On a scale of 1 to 10, rate the level of passion, excitement and fulfillment you would have if you were to get that exact job today.
    response:
  • Now take your ideal job, but imagine that the leadership you are working for is dishonest, self centered, greedy and lacks integrity. Take time to really see yourself working in that kind of environment. How would you feel working under that leadership for the next 2, 5, 10, 20 years of your life?

    Base on the same criteria in Step 2, how would you rate that job now?
    response:
  • What does this tell you about the importance the quality of leadership plays in the passion, fulfillment and success of your next job?
    response:
  • The Fifth Rule of becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees is:

    THE FIRST, AND MOST IMPORTANT, PRIORITY OF YOUR JOB SEARCH IS THE QUALITY OF LEADERSHIP OF THE COMPANY

    Do you agree?
    response:
  • If you chose 'strongly agree' and you sincerely meant it, proceed to Step 7.

    If you chose another answer, describe a circumstance where you are working for leadership that lies to you (or doesn't always tell you the truth), betrays you and treats you unfairly AND you still feel passionate, excited and fulfilled in your job.
    response:
  • Now imagine that you are working in a job where the leadership is honest, generous, wise and possess a high level of integrity. Take time to really see yourself working in that kind of environment. How would you feel working under that leadership for the next 2, 5, 10, 20 years of your life?

    On a scale of 1 to 10, rate your level passion, excitement and fulfillment you believe you would have if you were to get that exact job today.
    response:
  • Given what you just learned, describe your ideal job again.
    response:
  • If you had an opportunity to work for a company whose leadership was honest, fair and had a high level of integrity, how much more flexible would you be on issues of salary, type of position, commute, etc.?
    response:
  • Why?
    response:
  • How are you going you apply your answer in Step 10 to your current job search?

    (Note: this Session contains 7 Tasks. If you wish to DO any of the following Tasks over the course of more than one day, go to your 'scheduler' and schedule this isoBlog to coincide with your timeframe.)
    response:
Elements for Task 6: ( element | product | description | amt )
  • Applied psychology : Nonfiction : Self Help | Your Right Job Right Now | | 1 Each
Task 6 of 7: Believe In Your Right Job Right Now
  • Steps | Documentation | Messages (0)
  • Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: Foundation | Type: Event | Level: 1 | Duration: 1 Hour
  • In the chapter, June tells Carolyn:

    "You can't possibly get focused on something you're afraid doesn't exist."

    In all honesty, how confident are you that the position you want exists and that you are going to get it?
    response:
  • The Sixth Rule to becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees is:

    BELIEVE THAT RIGHT JOB EXISTS AND THAT YOU ARE GOING TO GET IT RIGHT NOW

    Take a moment to visualize yourself working for leadership that truly inspires you.

    Select 'successful' when you are finished.
    response:
  • Carolyn has trouble believing that she can find a company with "backbone". Brian has difficulty believing he can find leadership he can trust.

    When it comes to finding your IDEAL job, what do you have difficulty believing?
    response:
  • How much has your lack of belief in this area led you to make bad decisions?
    response:
  • How much has your lack of belief led you to put up with compromised situations?
    response:
  • How much has your lack of belief led you to blame others for your negative circumstances?
    response:
  • Write down a situation where you have been very angry with someone, when, upon refection, you were actually angry or disappointed in yourself.
    response:
  • Carolyn realizes that her negative beliefs lead her to think that she couldn't, or wouldn't, find a better job. This negative belief resulted in her "giving up her power".

    Describe a time in your career or life when you gave up your power. Be specific.
    response:
  • Have you spent time directing your anger at the person who was responsible for your lack of power? Unfortunately, that's you...

    Write a letter to yourself expressing your disappointment and anger for acting on your negative beliefs and fears.
    response:
  • Beneath the lousy feeling of coming face to face with your own mistakes and vulnerability, that weird sensation you are experiencing is your power beginning to restart its engines.

    Post in community, share track, call, email or Facebook someone and tell them about your letter. They may think you've gone off the deep end, but, trust me, you'll get a kick out of this Step!

    Select 'successful' when you are finished.
    response:
  • The good news is if you can be angry with yourself for acting on your negative beliefs and fears, you now have the power to act on your positive beliefs and dreams.

    Are you ready to bring that power to your next interview?
    response:
  • Proceed to the last Task in this Session.

    (Note: this Session contains 6 Tasks. If you wish to DO any of the following Tasks over the course of more than one day, go to your 'scheduler' and schedule this isoBlog to coincide with your timeframe.)

Task 7 of 7: Seven Rules To Becoming a World Class Interviewee
  • Steps | Unscheduled | Documentation | Messages (0)
  • Form: Cognitive Task | Phase: Foundation | Type: Event | Level: 1 | Duration: 1 Day
  • The Seventh and last Rule to become one of the World's Best Interviewees is:

    ALWAYS DO A MOCK INTERVIEW BEFORE EACH ACTUAL INTERVIEW YOU GO ON

    Are you ready to practice your interviewing skills right now?
    response:
  • If 'Yes', then follow Steps 3-8.

    If 'No', then proceed to Step 9 below.
    response:
  • First, select a person whose professional opinion you value. Arrange a time for them to give you a mock interview. If possible, do the mock interview in person.

    Stop and contact them now. If you were able to reach them, write their name and the time and place of the mock interview in the space provided.
    response:
  • Your job in the mock interview is to practice what have learned about becoming one of The World's Best Interviewees.

    The Six Rules of interviewing you are going to practice are:

    1) Don't overthink it. In an interview, there isn’t anything to think or worry about unless you receive an offer. This means you can be genuinely enthusiastic. Approach every interview as though it was going to be the opportunity of a lifetime.

    2) Leave your fears at the door. Don’t try to be something or someone you’re not. Identify your fears, doubts and insecurities. Then work to let them go.

    3) Get focused. Think about or, better yet, find out what the company is really looking for in a candidate. Think about the company’s needs more than your own.

    4) Bring your best self. Have a vision of the person who you want to become and bring that person to the interview.

    5) Great leadership is the top priority of your job search. No matter how much money, growth, title, etc., a job has to offer you, it will only be as good as the quality of the leadership.

    6) Believe in your right job, right now. Battle those negative thoughts that are trying to get you to believe that what you want isn't out there.

    Do you agree to give this Step everything you've got?
    response:
  • Before your mock interview takes place, go to the 'documentation' for this Task and download 'Questions for Mock Interview'. Download or print the document and then send it to the person who will be conducting your interview (do not review the questions).

    Are you willing to use these questions for your mock interview(s)?

    (Note: you can also go to the 'unscheduled' tab for this Task and add the isoBlog titled 'Mock Interview Questions' to your library. 'Share' this isoblog with the person conducting your mock interview.)
    response:
  • After your mock interview is completed, take into account the feedback you received (and your own evaluation) and identify the Rule(s) you need to work on to improve your interviewing skills.
    response:
  • Consider returning to the Tasks you need the most help with and redoing the Steps.
    response:
  • Remember to always DO a mock interview before each actual interview.

    Do you agree to do so?
    response:
  • Now that you are well on your way to becoming one of the World's Best Interviewees, would you like to know what the World's Best Job Seekers DO that the rest of the job seeking world doesn't?
    response:
  • If 'Yes', go to the unscheduled tab for this Session and schedule the 'Your Right Job Right Now' course that matches your needs and goals.
