Get Back to Work: Hidden Job Market

Get Back to Work: Hidden Job Market

Tapping into the “hidden job market” is a key, and sometimes overlooked, tool when you are looking for work. In my upcoming book, Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move, the fifth chapter – Hidden Job Market – shares what this market looks like and how to effectively tap into it.   Essentially, the hidden job market are the jobs and/or positions that companies do not post externally. Here is a sample of steps available to take to tap into this unknown market:

Get Back to Work: The Checklist

Get Back to Work: The Checklist

Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move my upcoming book that will be released later this summer – is something I never thought that I could, or would  write… but circumstances in my life changed that.  Back in 2009 when I was laid off my from job in corporate America after over a decade of working in staffing and recruiting, I thought I would jump right back into the workforce with a new job quickly.  During my year and half journey of unemployment and, more importantly, reinvention, I was also helping others to find work.  In 2010 I became involved with Active Job Seekers of America where I was president of the local chapter and then volunteer executive director, a position I still hold today. 

Get Back to Work: Business Cards

Get Back to Work: Business Cards

In my upcoming book, Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move, the fourth chapter – Business Cards – shares ideas about what to put on a business card and where to print them. 

Here is an excerpt from the book:

Business cards (also referred to as networking cards) are not only for those employed by businesses. Anyone seeking a new opportunity should have a business card. They are a great networking tool, so have them ready and use them.

There are many different places where you can have business cards printed. Try www.vistaprint.com and www.gotprint.net on the Internet, or use a local print shop. You can also purchase business cards at an office supply store, a Wal-Mart, or a Target. Microsoft Word can even be used to create and print them.

Networking short game at SACC's 20th Annual Bamboo Classic

Networking short game at SACC's 20th Annual Bamboo Classic

Imagine replacing the muted beige walls and lacquered wood trimming with the golden hills of the Northern California Valley; the blare of ringing cellphones silenced by the soft footsteps of wild turkeys crossing lush green grass; good food and good weather being the apex of a sales pitch rather than the staccato hum of a PowerPoint slide.

Imagine a boardroom presentation with Mother Nature as your Closer.

Nearly 20 Northern California businesses made the above a reality.   

The Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce (SACC) hosted its 20th Annual Bamboo Classic Golf Tournament July 21 at Catta Vedera Country Club in Lincoln, Calif.

Over 140 golfers, representing a wide-array of the Sacramento region’s business community, participated in SACC’s signature fundraising event. Northern California small businesses capitalized on a unique opportunity to network with tournament participants through tee box sponsorship.
