2 The Right Redeployment Z.I.P.® Model The Zeroing In Process, or ZIP Model, gives us a picture of what is involved in ANY job transition. It is parallel to the sales process. You are a product and you have to sell that product. This is true whether you are looking for a job internally or externally. Preparation When selling a product, the first thing you have to do is thoroughly know your product – it’s features and benefits. If you are the product, your features would be your skills, experience, education, interests, values, etc. - anything that makes up the person you are is a feature. How you’ve used those features to help your past employers are your benefits, and we call those accomplishments. They are specific concrete examples that show not just what you did, but how well you did it. Once you know your product and what you want your product to do, you then need to develop your marketing collateral – your resume. Then the question is Who’s going to buy the product, so we now need to develop a marketing plan. All that takes place in the first phase of the model, Preparation. Market Research The marketing plan moves us into Market Research, where now you want to find out as much as possible about the areas you’re targeting. If this is internal, it would focus on the types of positions in this organization that would be a fit for you. What departments are they in? What types of activities do they conduct? How do they relate to other areas in the organization – or externally? This research will primarily happen through networking – talking to people. Focus As you identify potential positions you would be interested in, you focus your networking and research. What positions might be open? Who do they report to? What specifically is that position responsible for. You may want to talk about background a little differently, emphasizing certain skills or accomplishments that show how you can meet the needs of the department / position.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
