Break into the ‘Hidden’ Job Market in 5 Steps
A successful job hunt requires more than scouring through open positions on Monster.com. Though replying to traditional ads is part of the process, tapping into the so-called “hidden” job market can be an even more effective way to land a job you’ll love when you graduate. The “hidden” job market includes positions that haven’t been posted publicly. A hiring manager might let her colleagues know she plans to hire a marketing associate, for instance, before she gets around to writing a job description. And when those colleagues recommend professional connections for the job, it’s likely their connections’ resumes and cover letters will get noticed.
