In a tight candidate market, like the one we’re in now, more and more companies are opting to promote and train talent from within. For today’s candidates, this means there are not only opportunities externally available to them, but internally as well.

So, when it comes to vying for these promotions, are you putting your best foot forward? Perhaps you’ve been somewhere long enough and felt you’ve proven your worth, but are you showing signs that you’re ready for a promotion? My guess is, you are probably great, and definitely good at your job, but that you might also be showing one or more of these telltale signs that give off the impression that you’re not ready for a promotion.

  1. You show up right on time.

In January, we had Stan Phelps host a webinar for us (if you missed it, you can view the recording here) and one of the concepts Stan is known for sharing is the notion that there is no such thing as meeting expectations anymore. You are either exceeding them, or you’re falling short. The same is true when it comes to showing up for work. If you’re not early, you’re late. And if you’re looking for a promotion or a raise, nothing says more about your commitment, or lack thereof, than the amount of time you’re currently putting in.

The signs that say, “I don’t want a promotion”:

  • Poor time management
  • Showing up right on time, or late
  • Leaving early, or right on time
  1. You shop a lot.

Shopping online, checking social media and using your cell phone at work can be some of the clearest signs that you’re not ready for a promotion. It’s unrealistic to expect employees to stay off of their phones completely throughout the entire day, but constantly checking your phone gives off a very disengaged vibe. For leaders, it shows you’re not committed to the work in front of you, especially if you’re always opting to take personal phone calls, text your friends and family or place your next Amazon order over doing your work.

The signs that say, “I don’t want a promotion”:

  • Excessive cell phone use
  • Web browsing or shopping online
  • Scanning social media
  1. You’re selfish.

People who have their eyes set on a promotion should be striking on all cylinders and demonstrating their personal drive, but also that they are invested in the team and organization around them. Are you helpful? Do you lift up those around you? Are you friendly? Can people rely on you? Are you viewed as a mentor? If you can’t answer yes to all of these questions, you might be operating too narrowly and focusing on yourself too much, especially if the promotion you’re targeting involves doing more for the company and those around you.

The signs that say, “I don’t want a promotion”:

  • Unavailable – for questions, but also for small talk
  • Keeping your door closed, or sitting away from the team
  • Crossing your arms, facing away from conversations and not smiling
  1. You go out a lot.

Every leadership team is looking for something a little different when it comes to promoting someone. But, if you’re being considered for a promotion over a group of your peers, it is important to demonstrate you have professional rapport with the people around you but that you’re not everyone’s best friend.

The signs that say, “I don’t want a promotion”:

  • Exaggerated gestures, like high-fiving or fist bumping
  • Coming into work hungover
  • Gossiping, or talking about a lot of non-work-related things and time spent outside the office
  1. You don’t dress up.

My colleague Maura Mann recently wrote about dressing for an interview and beyond, and in her article she shared a common but important piece of advice to “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” And when it comes to a promotion, nothing is more important. Even in the increasingly popular start-up life, which admittedly is more relaxed, you still need to show your drive – and potential future authority – by dressing professionally. Maybe for your office this means wearing a suit and tie five days a week, but it could also mean something simple like opting for a polo or a button-up instead of a t-shirt. As much as we may not like it, people make judgements based on our appearances. Make sure you’re not sending the wrong signs about who you are and what you want to be.

Not to mention, how you dress definitely impacts your mannerisms, in addition to how you are perceived.

The signs that say, “I don’t want a promotion”:

  • Casual dress
  • Unkept hair, facial hair, poor hygiene
  • Chewing bubble gum or pencils, biting your nails

When you’re on the promotional chopping block – and trust me, if you’re competing for the spot, it is absolutely a chopping block – do yourself the favor and continue to put your best foot forward. Think of your behavior and attitude when you first started the job. You were hungry, right? And driven? While a promotion may be in order, and deserved, the key is to continue to be deserving. Don’t eliminate yourself from consideration by falling short and displaying these signs that you’re not ready for it. Get after it! And good luck.

The job search process is unique to every person. For some, it’s an exciting period of time and they view it as the hunt for their next mountain to climb; they’re seeking out opportunity and it’s enthralling. For others, it can be a very anxious period of time, especially if it was unwanted or prompted by a recent demotion or the result of being let go. Regardless of the reasoning behind your job search, there are a few people who you should surround yourself with who will make the experience better – and, there are those who you should avoid at all costs.

In addition to setting yourself up for a successful search, like carving out the appropriate amount of time to be online job searching and applying balanced equally by networking and in-person meetings, there are personality types to surround yourself with who will make the job search process easier, and who might even help lead you to your next job.

Here are the 5 types of people to surround yourself with when job searching:
  1. The power networker
    This person is the ‘pull yourself up by the bootstraps’-type who is always putting themselves out there. Identify this person in your network and surround yourself with him or her while you’re in an active job search. The work ethic and can-do mentality of this person will keep you on the go and get you out to meet the people you need to be in front of in order to find your next opportunity. This person could be a former colleague, or maybe even a sibling or a friend. Ideally you want it to be someone who has an engaged network built up, events in the pipeline and who is involved in a similar industry as you are or who has a similar skill set – or, who has access to people who are and do.
  2. The influencer
    Similar to the networker, the influencer, however is like the keynote speaker to the networking event you attend with the power networker. He or she has a lot of connections but also has the power and wont to pull some strings. This person could be an executive you know, someone who heads up a group or an association, serves on a board, or even someone you just connected with over LinkedIn. They are typically in a position of power and are willing to use their positioning on your behalf. The better or more directly you know them, the better.
  1. The eternal optimist
    This can be your mom or your best friend, and this source of personality type is crucial to maintaining a positive outlook and some sanity during an active job search. These types of people and their positive vibes are contagious, and we need them in our search. Your eternal optimist is empathetic and will be there to remind you that your job search is temporary but your awesomeness is forever.
  1. The realist
    If the eternal optimist is your mom, maybe the realist is your dad (or vice versa depending on your family structure). It could also be your spouse, who while supportive, also knows what’s good for you and what you need from a logical standpoint for a new position to be a good idea for you. It’s all about balance and this person will course correct you back to reality if you need it. He or she is your due north, and your voice of reasoning.
  1. The recruiter
    This person is like the hybrid of the previous four people types – he or she will serve as your sounding board to make sure you’re targeting the right kinds of positions while also encouraging you to try something new and maybe outside of your comfort zone; the recruiter is also typically in a position to pull strings and make connections you otherwise wouldn’t have and is the consummate networker – especially if he or she is a good recruiter. You want this person in your court.
And, these are the 5 types of people you should avoid when job searching:

Conversely, there are a few personality types you should steer clear of, probably most of the time, but especially during an active job search. They are:

  • People who are negative
  • People with malicious intent
  • Competitors, or those looking to supersede you in some way
  • Someone with a quick fix, or a scam
  • Aggressive sales folks with an agenda

When job searching, people can be more susceptible to those around them and it’s important to differentiate friend from foe. Some of these people can be harder to categorize than others, but hopefully you can spot their intentions. Protect your psyche as much as you would protect anything else that is important to you.

Vigilance, the right attitude and a good strategy coupled with surrounding yourself with the right types of people will be what land you your next career opportunity.

The New Hampshire-Headquartered Staffing Firm Ranked No. 83 on America’s Best Professional Recruitment Firms List

BEDFORD, N.H. – APR 9, 2018 – Today, Alexander Technology Group was named by Forbes Media, in partnership with Statista, to the 2018 List of America’s Best Recruitment Firms. For America’s Best Professional Recruitment Firms, Alexander Technology Group ranked No. 83. A total of 250 firms are ranked on this list.

“This marks the first year of Alexander Technology Group being named to this prestigious list, so not only are we excited about the acknowledgement but we’re honored that the nomination came from our candidates and the HR executives we work with every day,” said Jason Alexander, Founder of Alexander Technology Group and Managing Partner of BANKW Staffing. “You can’t make successful placements without both sides of the hiring equation, and we are fortunate to work with some of the best employers and top technology talent in the region.”

“We are in a fast paced industry, yet taking the time to provide exemplary service to both our clients and candidates remains our top priority. I’m extremely proud of our team being recognized in this way by Forbes Media,” said Paul Silvio, Vice President of Alexander Technology Group.

Alexander Technology Group is a locally owned full-service staffing and recruiting company headquartered in New Hampshire and specializes in IT staffing and solutions.

Forbes partnered with the analytics firm Statista to compile the two lists of America’s Best Recruiting Firms. The first list ranks 250 professional search firms that specialize in positions earning less than $100,000 in annual income per year. The second list ranks 250 executive search firms, which is defined as companies that place executives in positions with annual incomes in excess of $100,000 per year.

Statista consulted trade organizations and company databases to identify 4,500 candidates and HR managers and executives in both of the two categories. They were asked to name recruiting firms they know and had worked with in the last three years and to assess the nominated recruiting firms on a scale from 1 (“poor”) to 6 (“excellent”) on qualities like the selection of offered positions, process and communication. Then, 30,000 external recruiters were consulted with as experts and invited to take an online survey. They were asked to recommend up to 10 recruiting firms (excluding their own); in total, 14,500 recommendations were gathered.

The resulting list and ranking is comprised exclusively of recruiting firms that have a sufficient number of nominations from these key populations of recruiting services consumers.

About Alexander Technology Group

Headquartered in Bedford, N.H., Alexander Technology Group is a locally owned full-service staffing and recruiting company specializing in technology services. We partner with the area’s leading employers to identify custom solutions to fit their staffing needs and match job seekers with skilled technology positions that meet their individual career goals and qualifications.

About “America’s Best Recruiting Firms” Lists

For the ranking of “America’s Best Recruiting Firms” Statista and Forbes Media divided the broad field of recruitment firms into two categories: Executive Search, or those companies specialized in the permanent placement of executive positions earning at least $100,000 in income per year, and Professional Search, which refers to those firms specializing in the permanent placement of professional and specialist positions with salaries up to $100,000 per year.

The surveys took place between December 13, 2017 and February 12, 2018.

In total 6,500 respondents took this year’s surveys with more than 14,500 nominations of recruiting firms. Rankings are based on the results of two surveys – a client survey, which was sent to candidates and HR managers, and an expert survey, which was sent to external recruiters.
