Are you spending all your time applying to posted job openings—postings that draw hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of applications? The key to success in the current job market is breaking through to the hidden job market. Over half of all jobs go to someone who did not apply to a posted opening at all. What are they doing and how are they doing it?
This webinar will teach you to stop wasting time and effort and beat the job-search odds by learning how to:
- Find jobs that are never posted anywhere
- Get complete strangers to help you find a job
- Convince potential employers to give you an interview—even when they’re “not hiring”
- Find—and land—the new jobs in this, or any, economy
Career expert and author Don Asher will share with you proven techniques to help you get the job you want. You don't have to work so hard to get a job; this webinar will teach you the inside secrets and proven strategies to getting those jobs no one knows about.
