Job opportunities are everywhere. Literally they are coming out of every nook and cranny of most businesses and organizations out there. Now obviously not every business is on the success track. Some industries may be moving off shore or starting to lose their footing. Not every company or business is looking to hire people at any given moment. But what remains constant is potential job openings are in the minds of hiring managers right now.
Yes, jobs are currently in the minds of hiring managers; right now. Most managers are always keeping an eye out for new people to add to their teams, especially if they have high or even moderate turnover. One of the most important functions of any manager who is in a position to hire people, is finding people they can trust who will do the job they need done without many issues.
So, the problem is not that there are not enough jobs out there. The problem is how do you tap into the reserve of jobs out in the marketplace before the other guy (or gal) gets to them. Before we describe the competitive environment out there let’s first explore where the jobs are:
- In the mind of hiring managers or company leadership.
- Waiting for approval.
- Part of a new company or departmental initiative.
- Part of an expansion plan.
- As a temporary assignment to see if a new program will work.
- Part of a hiring program but just cannot find the right person.
These six examples describe where jobs opportunities abound. Finding a new job is not just about what is published but what is unpublished. Unpublished jobs have greater potential to be just for you and what you are looking for. Unpublished jobs are what you should be looking for all the time. They are not easy to find. They are easy to uncover. That is for another post.
