"Hidden" Job Marketing & Network

Lots of work (as much as 80%) isn't advertised. Why aren’t all jobs advertised and why are so many hidden? There are lots of reasons.

  • employers are too busy or don’t have the resources to advertise 
  • employers don’t have time to sift through the hundreds of applications they would get if they advertised 
  • employers aren’t sure where to post jobs 
  • employers don’t know they need you yet 
  • you’re looking in places where employers aren’t present 
  • you’re disconnected from people to talk with about work opportunities 
  • you’re not sure of what you’re looking for
