Accessing the Hidden Job Market

The ease of modern digital applications created a mountain of unqualified resumes, which forced many recruiters to avoid public job postings altogether and start accessing their trusted, private networks. And that created a hidden job market.

Today, up to 80% of all jobs are concealed from traditional job boards like Indeed, CareerBuilder and trade publications. Recruiters are tapping their networks asking one simple question: “Who do you know that would be a good fit for this job?”

The more trusted relationships you can develop with people in your profession or industry, the more likely the answer to that question will be: YOU!

In this eye-opening presentation on the power of job search networking, Shira Lotzar will show you how to become top-of-mind in an employer’s private network…and start showing up before your resume.
