You have determined who you are and the type of career you would like to obtain, where do you look? Many people will start by looking through the classified ads, or on job boards on line, both of which can yield results. Others get their new role through what seems like pure luck. While this is possible, it’s more likely that many people will access the hidden job market in some way. You may have heard mention of this “hidden” job market but have no idea how to access it. Where and how should you network? How do you know what companies or organizations to approach? Once you have this information in hand, what do you do with it? What’s the best approach? What do you need to know in order to succeed in the interview?
You will learn:
- The importance of developing a list of targets
- Effective approaches – what works best for different situations
- 3 Keys to effective networking
- How to develop your pitch and why this is critical to your success
- The 3 C’s of successful interviewing
