What is the "hidden job market?"

The Hiring Process The Local Job Market

Accessing the hidden job market involves a very proactive approach to your job search. It goes beyond the known job postings and advertisements. It is marketing yourself to companies, attending networking meetings, and stopping by companies and dropping off your résumé in person. It’s also marketing yourself to the work community, doing your research on what companies are located in your region of interest and sending out letters of interest. Many job seekers send out résumés and wait for an answer; when you tap into the hidden job market, you go to the next level and seek out the employers directly.
