Hidden jobs

How do you find the hidden jobs in the labour market?

Get the answer from a recruitment perspective.

You have probably heard that between 60 and 90% of all jobs are “hidden”… But what exactly are “hidden” jobs? And how do you find them? Well, a hidden job is a job that is not openly advertised on company pages or job sites and that you find through indirect networks or hidden channels.

And hidden jobs also hold the key to answer other questions you –along with many other recent PhDs looking for suitable jobs—have been asking yourself. Is there simply no job for me? What exactly are these companies looking for? What do these job titles even mean?

As a result of this workshop you will better understand how hidden channels and networking works on the labour market and in the recruitment industry. Thus, increasing your chances to find your dream job. And guess what? It’s not as hard as you might think! You’re probably very good at it already – it’s just that you don’t know it yet.
