Step-by-Step Strategies to tap into the hidden job market & land your dream job!
60-80% of all job openings are filled through companies' networks and the great majority of those are not published on online job boards. In short, this means if your only job search strategy is to apply to jobs posted on LinkedIn, your chances of ever landing a job are slim, very slim! You are in effect competing in the smallest segment of job opportunities where the competition is the highest (on average 250 application for each job posted on LinkedIn as per their statistics).
Networking IS the key strategy that will not only fast track your job search but also give you access to a pool of jobs that is often much more interesting and where you will compete against a handful of other candidates considerably increasing your chances of success.
Now, the issue with networking is that most people do it completely wrong - it's not only falling short of generating the results they want but it can even harm their professional reputation.
This course is unique as it really focuses on HOW to do networking. It's jam-packed with scenarios and concrete and actionable strategies that you can put in place - even better, it contains over 40 email swipe files that you can copy-paste and use to exchange with your connection. It is the most extensive step-by-step guide that will show you how to expand your network, reach out to key people, engage in a meaningful conversation AND give you access to the hidden job market and convert those exchanges into job opportunities without having to be salesly or ask for referrals.
We often say "Your Network is Your Net Worth", I'd rather say that "Your Networking Skills are Your Best Assets for a Successful Career"
