Welcome back to the second part of my series on competing in all segments of the job market! In the first portion, I covered how to identify six-figure positions in the highly-competitive published job market by exploring the five segments of the job market. Today, I’m covering the 3 segments of the unpublished or hidden job market.
In my last post, I explained why you should be doing informational interviewing if you are interested in expanding your existing network and seeing what positions are available outside of your current company.
One of the easiest ways to branch out and find a new position is informational interviewing, but surprisingly not many job seekers engage in this process. When my clients approach me for interview preparation, they are usually referring to hiring interviews and not informational interviewing. This is a network-building process that can help you organically increase your job prospects and make real connections in your industry.
