Why Job Boards Are A Poor Job Search Strategy

Are you investing too much time responding to job ads on job boards? Are you depending too much on finding your next job through a job advertisement? The vast majority of jobs are not posted on job boards. This pool of available opportunities is called the hidden job market. Research studies have shown that 80% or more of all jobs are NOT listed on job boards. In this radio program, Brad and Barry help you to focus on how to penetrate the hidden job market by determining how appropriate are the contacts in your network, how to establish a networking relationship, and how to build trust over time with the most important people in your network so that you can generate an abundance of job leads and referrals.

    Agreed Brad! It’s too simple to think you have achieved something by just firing off your resume to a few jobs on a job board. This will never set you apart from other applicants sadly.
