How to access the Hidden Job Market by Networking Purposefully to identify viable new job leads. Career relaunchers and re-entry candidates face special challenges because they may not have the expected recent and/or relevant experience to attract employers.By positioning themselves correctly, it's possible to make the right contacts to learn about jobs before they are advertised and to have a new role created by an employer just for them which matches their unique background. There's a new job search paradigm today, resumes may not be the first impression a candidate makes, their online reputation may precede them making your digital persona as important as anything you can write about your qualifications. Successful new employees today use networking to find an opportunity and maintain their connections so that they keep learning about more potential leads they may want to pursue in the future.Call your relationships, "career insurance."
