Tips for Job-Seekers: Break into the Hidden Job Market

Old Westbury, N.Y. (Aug. 17, 2011) – Companies are hiring, and even with millions of Americans looking for work, available jobs remain open for months.

The graduates who are far better positioned for hiring have an internship or some work experience, plus a plan of attack for searching for work, says John Hyde, dean of NYIT’s Office of Career Services

Bloomberg BusinessWeek
reports on employers having a tough time finding qualified workers in today’s article “Companies Are Hiring. Just Not You.” Temp agencies to major tech companies like Microsoft can’t find qualified workers.

In order to have success, Hyde says job-seekers need a targeted employer outreach plan, identifying companies and organizations they want to work for. They must stick to a strategy of networking and reaching out to contacts to help.

“Break into the hidden job market,” said Hyde. NYIT Career Services can put you in touch with alumni and other employers that can identify open jobs that are not advertised.

“Clean up your Facebook page right away!” he cautioned.
