  • 5. Accesing the Hidden Market (II)
    • Networking
    Source: The wider your network, and the more often you use it, the better it works. At a low and broad level, friends, relatives or people you meet may know where there are jobs that are not advertised. Always ask them, as their employer may be looking for staff. This search method cannot be undervalued.
  • 6. Accesing the Hidden Market (III)
    • Contacting Employers by Mail or Phone
    • Registering with Recruitment Consultants
    • Working with Headhunters
