Cracking the Hidden Job Market. Pocket Job Series No. 3.
Lindgren, Amy
This book is the third in a series of six pocket-sized books written for career changers and laid-off workers. Each book is written at a 7th- to 10th-grade reading level and contains examples, hands-on self-discovery exercises, and step-by-step advice for a successful job search. This book identifies steps for finding the unadvertised jobs--80-95 percent of all jobs. Chapter 1 describes what the hidden job market is. Chapter 2 provides steps to build a network of people who can help. Chapter 3 outlines the three parts to a successful plan to use the hidden job market: research the market, create a schedule of contacts, and participate in the industry. Chapter 4 teaches how to use tools of the hidden job market. It provides samples of the following: letters of introduction; follow-up call; thank-you letter; card file/contact page; to-do list; and calendar page. Chapter 5 suggests the usefulness of good manners. Other contents include a bibliography of 11 helpful books for job seekers and an index. (YLB)
