Uncover the Hidden Job Market by Conducting a Strategic Search

Show #98: May 30, 2013

Last night, as I checked into my motel I met a lady who was unemployed. She told me she has gotten tired of sending out countless electronic applications, and not receiving a response. I asked her what she was doing differently. She told me she recently walked into a hospital she wanted to work at and asked if she could personally meet with the CEO. She got the personal meeting!

Her story illustrates the move from conducting a traditional job search to a strategic job search. This week we will be discussing how you can uncover the all important hidden job market and start conducting a more strategic search, as we continue our Audio Production of the book Successfully Unemployed: Finding or Creating Your Dream Job.
