Empower Your Job Search with the Hidden Job Market☀️

Yesterday, I had a very enjoyable conversation with one of my career coaching clients, during which he shared a big success utilizing the networking strategies I teach my clients to tap into the Hidden Job Market. 

Here's the scenario, my client reached out to a former co-worker who’s now a Division President at a well-known company. Not only did this President happily reconnect with my client, but they’ve also scheduled a phone call to catch up! 🚀

This is the Hidden Job Market at work—it takes some effort and a little time, but it really works! 

Below are 3 easy tips to help you get started:

#1. Make a comprehensive list of everyone you know who’s already in your network such as previous colleagues, mentors, supervisors, or alumni. ✔️

#2. Map out where these colleagues are today and the current title they hold. ✔️

#3. Begin a campaign to reach out to these people and reconnect. ✔️

This is the fastest way to speak with hiring managers and decision makers to find out who is hiring and who they know is hiring. 💡

Companies post on job boards a mere 25% of the actual number of positions they need to fill.

The rest are filled through networking. ⭐

When you engage your network and initiate conversations, you’re not just searching for a job; you’re taking charge of your career and navigating towards a successful outcome.

That’s the true strength of the Hidden Job Market! 💯
