first_imgSome people want to work for Google more than anything. Others are smitten with 72 and Sunny or Leo Burnett and some are gunning to get a job at Glassdoor or Quora.Anyone with two or three employers on their A-list of targets needs a smart strategy to show they’re sweet on those companies. Read on for six ways to woo the hiring manager.Perhaps you will send the hiring manager or recruiter chocolates with a note saying, “I’d really love to work for you just before Valentine’s Day.” That could get some attention, especially if she’s a chocoholic. “But some people might get creeped out” by that, said Laura Laser, an executive recruiter in the advertising world and president of Laser Talent Group in Los Angeles.Before you start your campaign, check out the person’s online profiles and presence to find out as much as you can about her or him. Discover their hobbies and interests and check on Amazon or Goodreads to see if you share an appreciation for a particular kind of books, said Laser.Her all-time favorite way a client connected with her involves her little dog, Livvy, who sometimes comes to work and shows up on her profile photo.  She was in the middle of a Skype interview with a creative director / job candidate when the pooch decided to join in. Livvy jumped into her lap and the job seeker used Skype to take a photo of them. Then he painted the dog’s picture and sent it to the recruiter.“It was just amazing that he did that,” Laser said. “How could I not love that guy?” She’s told other recruiters about him and shares the story regularly as an example of the “thoughtful extra things” that can really create a bond or make you stand out.Even if you couldn’t paint a wall, you still can show your targeted recruiters and managers that you’re sweet on them. Here’s six ways:1. Be a Standout. Use humor or say something clever in your email subject line – or both. Recruiters receive a lot of email each day. Laser remembered one that was funny and “real’ starting with the subject: “Recruiting you to recruit me.” The person mentioned he had trekked through Peru and ended the note with, “If you like what you see, please contact me and we can talk more. If you don’t like what you see, contact me and we can talk more.”2. Get Introduced by Someone. “Ask a mutual connection to make a recommendation on your behalf,” she suggests.3. Retweet Their Best.  Follow the recruiter, hiring manager and the company on Twitter. Then, find something worthwhile to retweet occasionally, in hopes that that will lead them to your profile. (Make sure your online profile conveys your professionalism and brand, and while you’re at it, check your Facebook page so it’s squeaky clean.)4. Share Relevant Ideas.  This can work well if the company targeted has some widely known growth plans or a problem it is grappling with. You will need to invest some time and analysis to offer something of value, and then present it succinctly, perhaps via a SlideShare or PowerPoint, Laser said.5. Bring Them Coffee and Cookies. This works well at career fairs or corporate events, where a recruiter may be stuck in a chair all day long. Just learn ahead of time whether they’re vegan or dieting; this often can be discerned by their Facebook or MeetUps.6. Persist Politely.  It may take three or more emails, notes and connections before they recognize your name and your value. Your dedication to the company and to regular connections could be part of what shows your appreciation and your talent.Make sure you don’t cross over into annoying or ridiculous. Nor do you want to come off as a stalker by showing up at the school play where the recruiter’s children are performing – unless of course, your niece is also in the cast.last_img

Tribunal declares Union rules changes invalid

first_imgOutgoing Union President Mayank Banerjee’s controversial rules changes have been declared null by a tribunal, whilst Returning Officer Thomas Reynolds was cleared of interfering with Union elections.Banerjee, whose term ends at midnight on Saturday, fought for the rules changes, which involved the legalising of campaigning, including slates, and the introduction of a Re-Open Nominations (RON) option. In a poll he conducted in 5th week, over 90 per cent of voters approved the rule changes. However, Returning Officer Thomas Reynolds, who ran the Union elections in a 7th week which saw Roberto Weeden-Sanz elected as President for Trinity 2015 after he ran unopposed, issued an interpretation which declared the rule changes invalid during the election. At the time, Reynolds stated that in changing the rules via poll, Banerjee’s own interpretation of the rules was “wrong”, adding that under the conditions of the President’s poll, “It is insupportable for me to run these Elections in a transparent and correct manner.” Reynolds issued the ballot papers for the election without a RON option on them, despite Banerjee insisting that the rule changes would be in place for the election.Banerjee had originally claimed that if his rule changes were not in place for the election, he would resign. However, he told Cherwell that despite the tribunal’s decision that his rule changes were invalid, he would not be resigning in the few hours he had left of his tenure, also refusing to comment on the decision until after the tribunal’s report had been published.Furthermore, candidates who campaigned in the 7th week elections will not face a tribunal, Cherwell understands, as the deadline has passed for this term — despite the fact that the tribunal’s decision suggests that candidates who campaigned broke Union rules. Although Reynolds was cleared of interfering with the election, the tribunal’s statement does not specifically state that his interpretation of the rules was correct. It is understood that they will release a new interpretation of the rules in due course.Reynolds also refused to comment on the decision.It remains to be seen whether incoming president Lisa Wehden, who could also not be reached, will attempt to push through the rule changes in her tenure next term.last_img
