Preparing for job search in the hidden job market

It is said that between 80%-95% of jobs are part of the hidden job market and not advertised anywhere. So, what exactly is a hidden job market and how does one learn about available work opportunities if they are hidden? 

This presentation will provide students with an understanding of why employers may need or want to use a less 'published' method to recruit staff and strategies they can implement to become more tuned into opportunities in their targeted work, sector or position interests. Students will also learn about common job seeking mistakes that they can avoid.
