This unadvertised jobs market, or hidden jobs market, is still largely ignored by executive job seekers. Why? Steve says, "I think that there's a human element in play here. We seem to find it easier to connect to a website/newspaper job advert, even when everyone else is chasing those advertised roles."
Nevertheless, research shows that 70% of the best jobs are to be found in this hidden jobs market. "It's vital in today's ultra-competitive jobs market to change your thinking." says Steve. "Being proactive and focusing on the hidden jobs market might seem daunting at first, but the rewards can be incredible".
