Where To Find Local Hidden Job Openings In Your Specialty

Where To Find Local Hidden Job Openings In Your Specialty

There is a way to find local, hidden job openings, ... where only a few to a dozen or so applicants have applied, and where your chances for a job offer increase exponentially. This fact is supported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, who reports that over seventy-percent of all the jobs here in the U.S. are not currently posted to any outside venue – not to job banks, newspapers, or even industry specific trade magazines.

Find Hidden Job Openings In Your Job Specialty


Job seekers are learning the hard way that when they apply for jobs found on popular job bank websites – whatever the name or workplace specialty – that hundreds of other job seekers are there too, having followed the same job post links. Such job competition rises to levels rarely seen by modern individuals, so consequently, much time, energy, and effort are squandered on job possibilities that have long, negative odds associated with them. Job seekers in that circumstance often experience disappointment and frustration. Save yourself the hassles. Take heed to the advice below to find local and regional jobs that are not widely advertised, thusly increasing your odds of getting hired into your preferred career position.

Since such unadvertised jobs are not generally known to the public-at-large, you have to search for them by a means different than the typical internet job search. There are three ways to uncover such jobs: 1) Personal Networking; 2) by Telephone or other direct contact; 3) and by Mail, be it postal service or email. All three of these methods have proven very successful for both individual job seekers, and also for active recruit specialists, who often need to uncover such hidden jobs, in order to assist their job candidates to find employment.

‘Personal Networking’ relies on your ability to reach out to people you know in the industry or industries that you serve, and to discover through conversation who is hiring now, or who will be hiring soon, of if there may be a change of employment (i.e. transfer, promotion, termination, etc.) that may create a job vacancy. All of those scenarios give you the opportunity to put your credentials on the top of the applicant pile.

‘Telephone’ isn’t a repeat of the statement just above; this is a professional outreach effort where you create a list of local or regional firms that fit your type of preferred employment – whether those companies currently admit to having job opening, or not – then calling them, one by one, so you can identify the personalities who authorize hiring. In this case, your ‘Networking’ is not ‘Personal’, in the sense that you do not know the people whom you are trying to reach. But you’ll soon know them, if you follow this approach.

The ‘Mail’ strategy is just as easy as it sounds. You accomplish the same tasks as those above, in the ‘Telephone’ strategy, except you use email or postal mail to accomplish the individual contact. This will be a slower method of contact – mostly – except, when using email; as sometimes busy hiring agents prefer the less direct approach, as there is less interruption to their daily schedules.

Use the strategies above to break the cycle of mass applicant turmoil that often follows when job seekers pursue job posting that are viewed by thousands of interested eyes on popular job bank websites.

Good Luck In Your Job Search.

HUGE Resume Mistakes That Most People Miss

Posted by Mark Baber
May 10 2010

HUGE Resume Mistakes That Most People Miss

With nearly thirty years experience as an executive search specialist, I have seen tens-of-thousands of super-weak, almost naive, resumes offered up to potential employers as the primary instrument of introduction. In this article we’ll review a few of the primary resume elements a job seeker should consider prior to submitting a resume to a prospective employer. If your resume doesn’t (mostly) match the elements below, you may have discovered why you are having difficulty getting hired.


Number one, among the worst resume offenders, is length; second is content; third is resume format, or how easy it is to find the pertinent career details the employer seeks. These three items, if intelligently considered, can help you stand out from the rest of the job applicants; seriously – reread this sentence.

The length of your resume is simple to fix – keep it short, no more than two pages. Sure, there are careers, like medicine, law, engineering, and certain research jobs that require an in-depth resume for employers to view before deciding whether to visit with a job candidate. But that group of job seekers represents fewer than ten-percent of employees. For the rest of us, shorter is better. Don’t go beyond two pages, and try to keep it to one page.

Why so short a resume, when job seekers often have lots to say about their skills and experience? The truth is this – and applicants don’t hear this often enough – most hiring authorities, and their helpers, will not take the time to review any more than the first couple pages of a resume. Doesn’t matter how ‘cool,’ smart, or elaborate the resume is, the hiring folks only want to read about how you fit their hiring needs. If they don’t find that information fast, on the front page, then you will likely be eliminated from the hiring process. Content is king! Your resume MUST BE customized to fit the job for which you are applying. It should immediately address the primary skills and experience that a specific employer seeks, not just review your career past. How do you get those details about the job you want? Call the employer, do some research, network, do whatever reasonable outreach you can perform to learn everything you can about the specific workplace issues the employer is trying to solve on the job you want. Put that into your resume, up front.

How should you format that information? Simply, that’s how, regardless of which resume format you commit to. Make your career details about a specific job title easy to find, easy to read, with bullet lists of related skills, and job title and duty comments that also offer quantified performance-based statistics from your career past that directly relate to the workplace issues the employer seeks to repair by hiring for the job you want. In other words, don’t simply describe what you think they want to read about your career. Prove to each employer prospect, with your statistics and other resume entries, that you fully understand their workplace issues, and have solutions to offer that you fully understand and can ‘bring to bear,’ if hired.

While resume discussions most often fold down to the same, generic, unfocused resume methods that most of us have used in the past to get hired, those strategies do not work well. Certainly, it is more difficult and time consuming to research an employer in order to customize your resume to match their needs. So what! If you are motivated enough to research a possible employer and deliver to them a resume that exactly matches their needs, you will probably be the only job candidate to do so. That is what will lift your presence to the attention of the people who can approve your job offer. I’ve seen that magic happen hundreds of times, where employers expedite a job candidate’s hire based on a resume (and job interview) that exactly match, and address, with quantified examples, solutions to specific employer workplace issues.

APRIL 2010 - Monster Employment Index

Posted by Paul James
May 09 2010

Learn Which Industries Are Actively Hiring

.................. NEW YORK, May 6, 2010 -

Employment Index

Reflects Continued Optimism In Job Market

April 2010 Index Highlights:

• Index rises eight points in April continuing its three-month growth trend, while year-over-year growth rate is now up 11 percent

• Mining, quarrying, oil, and gas extraction workers see strongest rise in online job demand in April; Information and agriculture contract

• Consumer-driven sectors: retail trade; and accommodation and food services register second consecutive month of growth

• Online job demand rises in 27 of the 28 major metro markets

NEW YORK, May 6, 2010 - The Monster Employment Index rose eight points in April as a number of industries initiated springtime recruitment efforts. The annual growth rate further accelerated, rising by 11 percent, ... the highest rate of increase since July 2007.

The Monster Employment Index is a monthly gauge of U.S. online job demand based on a real-time review of millions of employer job opportunities culled from a large representative selection of corporate career Web sites and job boards, including Monster®.

During April, online job availability rose in 17 of the Index’s 20 industry sectors and in 21 of the 23 occupational categories monitored.

The positive momentum in the Index is consistent with other economic indicators suggesting that we may be in the early stages of an economic recovery,” said Jesse Harriott, senior vice president and chief knowledge officer at Monster Worldwide. “While most industries and occupations are showing increased demand for workers, public administration remains muted and below seasonal expectations as several state and local governments continue to face budgetary pressures.”

Online Demand in Mining; ... Construction Industry Sectors Register Largest Increases in April; Agriculture; and Information Edge Down

Mining, quarrying, oil and gas registered the largest gain among industries in April, as online demand jumped to its highest level in 18 months. This rise coincides with a rise in commodity prices for energy and raw materials as the economy recovers and demand for these products increases. Construction also rose notably, partly reflecting seasonal trends but also suggesting an improvement in the underlying demand for labor in this industry. Consumer-driven sectors like retail trade; and accommodation and food services continued to report large gains. The magnitude of increased demand for workers at this time of the year suggests that employers anticipate a continued positive trend for consumer spending in the near-term. Management of companies and enterprises; and professional services, two industries with relatively stagnant demand in March, registered month-over-month gains in April.

Meanwhile, public administration registered a marginal rise in April, far short of historical precedent, further emphasizing the budgetary challenges faced by agencies at all levels of government. In contrast, real estate; information; and agriculture edged down in April.

On an annual basis, mining; as well as real estate and rental and leasing led all industries. Construction was also up by 15 percent year-over-year but remains below pre-recessionary levels.

Personal Care; Social Service; and Construction Occupations Register Largest Gains in April

Overall online demand for workers rose in 21 of 23 occupational categories in April, with personal care; social service; and construction occupations registering the largest gains on a month-over-month basis.

The rise in construction and extraction occupations, potentially fueled by increased demand for select blue-collar workers and skilled tradesmen, coincides with the rise in online recruitment efforts for the construction industry as a whole. Management, engineering and legal occupations also registered a notable increase in April, contributing to the rise in the professional services industry.

In contrast, demand fell in the military specific category, offsetting the expansion in hiring activity for public sector-related community and social service; and protective service workers.

Arts and design led all occupational categories in terms of year-over-year growth with a 20 percent annual rise in opportunities closely followed by transportation and warehousing which continued its uptrend. Sales and related; education; and production occupations also reported more online job offerings than a year ago.

Online Job Availability Rises in All U.S. Census Bureau Regions in April

During April, demand rose in all U.S. Census Bureau regions with Mid Atlantic and New England registering the largest gains, both climbing 11 percent month-over-month. Meanwhile, East South Central registered the slowest expansion in demand among all regions in terms of three-month and annual growth rates, weighed down by muted recruitment in Mississippi. On an annual basis, Middle Atlantic continued to exhibit the most improvement.

Among the 50 states and the District, 46 registered increased online job opportunities in April, with notable gains in Northeast states like Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and New York. Pennsylvania and New York led all states by measure of year-on-year growth in online job demand, while California’s annual growth rate continued to improve in April. In contrast, the Dakotas exhibited the steepest annual declines.

Twenty Seven of The 28 Major U.S. Metro Markets Monitored By The Index Register Increases in April; Orlando Remains Flat

During April, online recruitment activity rose in 27 major metropolitan markets, with Philadelphia registering the largest gain mostly due to expanded demand for white-collar professionals in management, the sciences, and education. Demand for blue-collar workers also improved in Philadelphia, with all occupational groups edging higher in April.

Boston also expanded notably in April and opportunities have now grown by 50 percent, over a three-month period. This rise was largely fueled by expanding for a variety of occupational categories, but most notably for blue-collar and service workers in production; installation, maintenance, and repair; and food preparation and serving.

Year-over-year, all 28 markets reported positive growth. Portland continued to exhibit the most substantial gains in online demand on an annual basis, while Houston exhibited the mildest annual rise.

"Hey,DoYaWannaJob?" Magazine Now Distributed To 5-MILLION US Job Seekers

Posted by Dayton Jones

"Hey,DoYaWannaJob?" Magazine

Now Distributed To 5-MILLION

US Job Seekers

5-Million U.S. job seekers to receive ‘job search’ publication “Hey,DoYaWannaJob?” Magazine, and its "Job Search Directory" of names, numbers, email and website contacts, to reach hiring specialists and employers in every region of the U.S.


PR Log (Press Release) – May 07, 2010 – Eleven years in the making, the next quarterly edition of "Hey,DoYaWannaJob?" Magazine, scheduled for release July/2010, will distribute to over 5-Million job seekers across the USA. A record subscriber distribution for this JobNewsRADIO.com operated publication.

For eleven years MCBaber: Recruit Services, a full spectrum executive search agency based in the midwest, developed a method to attract unemployed and under-employed job seekers as subscribers to industry specific, private, hiring oriented newsletters; the newsletters being delivered primarily by postal service and by email.

The heart of their work is to identify, from their subscribers, quality job placement candidates for their placement agency; while also helping subscribers find employment within respective industries, by inserting job search and hiring trend content in each industry newsletter. The audience arrived seeking such information, coming from a merging practice of email outreach, and web-based social networking via industry specific forums, blogs, groups, and other online communities.

Four years after their 1998 start-up, MCBaber: Recruit Services used the audience strength of their job search newsletters to launch JobNewsRADIO.com (JNR), an online job search community. After partnering with Beyond.com’s 4JOBS network, in 2008, JNR’s online job search community members jumped to over 3-Million, with an additional 2-Million industry specific, job seeker subscribers who received the job search newsletters.

The convergence of the above dynamics in 2008 caused JNR management to decide to open their private newsletters to the public, and consequently merge all industry newsletters into the single issue: “Hey,DoYaWannaJob?” Magazine & Job Search Directory.

As the financial future of the world, then, began to develop into recession type results, increased numbers of job seekers sought job search resources like “Hey,DoYaWannaJob?” Magazine, and JobNewsRADIO.com, to help guide them through the often arduous and confusing, hiring processes. Subscribers grew in number.

Over their last twenty-four months, and into the second business quarter of 2010, job search interest has surged, helping create a “Hey,DoYaWannaJob?” Magazine distribution list of over 5-Million addresses; that number is a milestone for the editors and operators of JobNewsRADIO.com.

JNR attributes the growth to the valuable job search content offered in the magazine. News articles focus on practical job placement techniques to help job seekers better understand the mind-set of employers as the hiring process unfolds. Written by hiring experts, most articles use real-life job seeker examples to illustrate how to manage specific job search issues. Other articles address hiring trends within industry categories. Additionally, the magazine carries a comprehensive "Job Search Directory," offering job seekers names, numbers, email and website locations of hiring specialists in every region across the USA.

# # #

With over three million users registered to the 4JOBS Job Seeker Community, and over five-million subscribers nationwide that receive its "Hey,DoYaWannaJob?" MAGAZINE, JobNewsRADIO.com has become a proven internet source for job search help.

Afraid To Network?

Posted To JobNewsRadio.com 4JOBS community By: Deborah Brown-Volkman

Most people I speak with know the value of networking. All the experts, including myself, say it's the best pathway to your next great job or opportunity. But what happens if you don't like to network? Or more specifically, you are afraid of it?

You are not the only person who doesn't like to walk into a room of strangers and bare their soul. There are many people like you who are uncomfortable opening up to people they've never met, and asking for their help.

JobNewsRadio.com - The Job Search Show

Click To Hear "Job Search Show" MP3

In today's interconnected world, you have many ways to reach out to people. For example, you can use email or the telephone. You can use social networking for its speed and ability to meet people you may have not met otherwise. Live interaction with people are important too because they build connections and long term relationships.

If networking is not for you, then it's not for you. Live by what you believe in, accept your belief, and move on. But if you know deep down inside that not reaching out to others is holding you back and keeping you from getting what you want in your career, then it's time to face and conquer your networking demons.

So How Do You Embrace Networking As An Important Business Tool... And Not Let Your Fear Hold You Back? Follow These 5 Steps Below.

Job Search Networking By Industry

1. Accept Your Networking Fears.

It's ok to be afraid. And until you can accept your fear for what it is, fear, then it won't go away. Sometimes when we are afraid, we tell ourselves that we are not. We try to talk our way out of our fear and pretend it isn't real or it shouldn't be there. Fear acceptance does not work this way. You let yourself feel your fear and you don't criticize or judge your feelings. You remind yourself that fear is just as normal as your other emotions. You wouldn't give yourself a hard time for being happy, so give the same courtesy to your fears.

2. Identify Your Networking Fears.

What are you actually afraid of? Is it every aspect of networking or just characteristics? Break your fears into pieces. For example, are you afraid of walking into a room by yourself? Are you uncomfortable introducing yourself? Are you nervous about feeling rejected once you make your request or ask for help? Once you know exactly what gives you butterflies in your stomach, then you can learn how to overcome it.

3. Choose To Let Your Networking Fears Go.

There is a choice to make here. Some people hold onto their fears because they serve a purpose. For example, as long as you don't ask for help, you don't have to feel weak or judged. As long as people believe you are fine, then you don't have to face how bad you feel about your situation. Choose to let go of your fears so they don't have power over you any longer. Once your fears are out in the open, they can't hurt you anymore.

4. Create Your Networking Plan.

Some people fear networking because they don't have a plan. If they go to a networking meeting, they don't know who they want to meet or what they want to say. Or, they haven't created a list of networking meetings to go to. Others go onto social networking sites, and don't know why they are there. Some make plans with friends and former colleagues and don't create an agenda, thus the meetings don't go anywhere. Every networking situation or opportunity needs thought, attention, and a focus before you go. If you write down your plan with the steps for achievement, networking with be much easier for you.

5. Have Fun Networking.

Meeting new people can be fun. Catching up with former colleagues can be satisfying. Before you needed help, you may have been a person who kept to yourself. Your career and life was busy, but maybe something was missing. The missing piece was connections with others. No matter how far you go in the world, you'll enjoy it more with great people you can count on and talk to.

Good luck in your job search - "Hey,DoYaWannaJob?" Magazine Editorial Staff
