Dear Friends:

Welcome back to AH Jobs List!

Often, I talk to job seekers about aligning their careers with their values, and, as often, I get puzzled looks from those same job seekers. When we really start discussing what a career means in the context of our relative short time on earth, it becomes clear that our careers are much more than just a paycheck or routine labor.

Think about it:  As employers have high expectations from their employees, employees should have high expectations of their employers.  We are committing to them the value of our hard-earned education, expertise, skills, accomplishments and our life experiences to the success of the organization! We spend more of our precious time at the office than we do with our families or doing the things that we REALLY enjoy. I'd say our expectations of happiness and fulfillment at our jobs OUGHT to be pretty high!

When I ask job seekers to tell me stories about their favorite jobs and what qualities of that job made it so enjoyable and fulfilling, rarely do they say, “I made a lot of money!” Instead they describe work that is tied to things that are more representative of their values:

  • My employer was ethical and I trusted the company to do the right thing.
  • I felt my boss was a good leader.
  • The work culture was about ‘excellence,’ and everyone strived for success.
  • My company communicated with me – I felt I knew what was going on and it was clear what my role was.
  • I really looked forward to going to work each day.
  • I felt an enormous sense of pride and accomplishment.
  • I felt my skills were fairly compensated.
  • The organization really was serious about providing me with that elusive ‘work/life balance.’
  • Everyone was willing to go the extra mile.
  • There was opportunity for me to grow.
  • I felt as if I was valued and that I added value!
  • We worked hard, but we played hard too!
Today, surveys are showing, on average, professionals are only staying at one job for about two years before they decide to move on.  Between the ages of 21 and 40, that means about 10 – 12 job changes!  As I’ve mentioned before, on AH Jobs List, more than 70% of my weekly subscribers are currently employed.  They are either on the lookout for a new position or are actively searching to jump to a new job.
 
"As employers have high expectations from their employees, employees should have high expectations of their employers."
Employers know that this level of attrition is harmful to their organizations. When they lose someone to a competitor, they are losing employees they have trained, employees who understand their business and in many cases, employees who have levels of seniority, expertise and are well-known in the industries in which they work. From a financial perspective, it is expensive to recruit new employees and of course there’s always the risk the new employee won’t work out either.

And if you think about it, the job search process is similar to blind dating! (Of course, you probably wouldn't go on a date and get a question like "Give me an example of a time that you felt you went above and beyond the call of duty in a previous relationship!")  The fact is, much like in dating, both the job seekers and the employers are trying to convince each other to enter into a relationship and are pulling out all the stops so they will believe it is an attractive proposition.

Many employers have stolen a page from the online dating websites and are using highly sophisticated surveys where predictive (and accurate) algorithms are determining if the applicant is a ‘culture’ match and would have a high probability of staying at the company.  Many companies tell me that the culture fit is actually more important than the skills fit and often the 4th or 5th ranked candidates are getting the job offer based on how they’ve demonstrated their ability to ‘fit in’ with the company’s values, mission and overall culture.

As a job seeker, it is important for you to fill you are ‘fit’ with the company. Research the companies you are applying to work for. Be prepared to ask questions that are important in your decision making process relating to your own values. While often it might be about matching your values to the company’s ethics, financial stability or opportunity for growth, other times it might be as simple as commute time, travel schedule, flex-time, vacation schedule, or other benefits. Ask yourself what type of environment you best thrive in. Do you like to work in a team, or do you like autonomy? All of these conditions (and more) are important for you to raise before you consider the value of your hard earned skills and expertise to an employer.
