Event Description


MBA alumni (and all job searchers) often hear about the "Hidden Job Market," but what exactly does that term mean? Does it really exist—and if so—what's the best way to access roles that aren't posted?

Internationally known career expert and speaker Dr. Don Asher will discuss:

  • How to find jobs before they are announced (i.e. hidden job market)
  • What you have to prove to employers to get hired in this pandemic
  • What different skills are rewarded if you are working remotely?
  • How to design your own smart, MBA-style onboarding (i.e. the tipping point to management hiring)

An interactive Q&A session will follow the presentation.
