Most open positions in the hidden job market

It has been estimated that even 60–80 percent of open positions belong to the so-called hidden job market, i.e. they are never advertised. In these situations, the employer is seeking a new employee through their contact network. It is easier to make a decision on hiring an employee if an acquaintance already knows them. It is often the case of being at right place at the right time. Contacting an interesting employer is a sign of motivation and could improve your chances of employment when a suitable position opens up.

• Tell your friends, former employers etc. about your job search so that you have as
many agents as possible to help you.

• Utilize social media and pass the word, for example, in LinkedIn.

• Contact the companies and organizations you are interested in. You can contact the
human resources or the head of the unit you are interested in.
