Pursuing The Hidden Job Market

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

In order to maximize your job search efforts and achieve your long-term career potential, it is vital that you understand the importance of “the hidden job market.” For many years, career experts have been saying that the best opportunities are to be found in the “hidden” or “invisible” job market – these are also known as “unpublished” opportunities. These terms simply mean that the positions are not advertised, posted or made available to the general public.

Candidates who spend all their job-search time applying for advertised positions are stacking the odds against themselves. The 80%-20% rule applies to the hidden job market. Only about 20% of quality job openings are advertised, and 80% of candidates are applying for those advertised positions – so your chances are terrible with this strategy.

Career Coaching via Video Conferencing

Career Coaching Video ConferencingFor many years, we have worked via video conference with “long distance” clients (or local clients whose circumstances have made it difficult to visit our offices). Our coaching model allows us to work remotely and still provide exceptional levels of connection, quality and impact. We are happy to serve clients from anywhere in the United States and Canada via video conference.

Here are just some of the benefits of doing career coaching via video conference:

Time – clients save time by not having to travel to our offices for coaching sessions
Comfort – clients are often more comfortable working from their own homes or offices
Flexibility – clients experience fewer planning conflicts and more flexibility with scheduling
Convenience – clients who travel for work are still able to attend their coaching appointments by using mobile devices from anywhere

Career coaching via video conference is easy and effective. For more information, please visit: https://careerpotential.com/career-coaching-video-conferencing/.
