What’s the lesson here? I talk to clients everyday, some of whom worry because they’ve taken unconventional career paths. They’re seeking reassurance because their career did not go from point A to point B to point C.

There are a lot of issues to grapple with when your job search was not your own idea. Sometimes there’s resentment and bitterness towards the company that laid you off and oftentimes it’s a blow to the ego. The thing to remember is the company was making a business decision and not to take your lay-off personally. But if you do, you need to work through the hostility and get to a more positive place.

Unless you’re actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, Yankees baseball star Alex Rodriguez or maybe The Donald, chances are you’ll be making your next career move without the aid of an agent. But recruiters (also known as headhunters) may be helpful.

Hidden jobs, like gold and diamonds, take effort to unearth. Finding them requires out of box thinking and effort. Most job seekers focus on published jobs, the low hanging fruit. But very few people actually get hired by applying to posted openings. Why? Because that’s where most of your competition is. It’s very easy to fire off resumes to those job postings, but on the other end, the recipients are being inundated with applications and even if you’re a perfect fit, they may never even see your resume.

You’re stalled and you don’t understand why. The problem could be a sense of entitlement. A feeling that upon graduation you have a right to a job. For those further along in their careers, it could be the hubris derived from years of awards, accolades, and bonuses; you’re a proven top performer and anyone should be happy to hire you.

The “Nobody’s Hiring” Myth!

by Linda Lupatkin

Yes, unemployment is ridiculously high but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t positions out there to be had by the savvy and informed job seeker. Even companies with supposed “hiring freezes” are still hiring due to retirements and turnover.

In our own experience here at The Imagemakers, Ink!, we’ve had 8 of our executive / professional clients find gainful employment in just the past several months.

The key thing to understand though, is that traditional methods of job hunting aren’t cutting it in this market. Job boards (with which many job hunters become obsessed) should be a very small percentage of an effective career search campaign with networking at professional, alumni and other associations becoming a much larger part of the overall strategy.

Social Media is also playing a large part in discovering those hard to find opportunities that are frequently only mentioned through social networks.

The truth is that there absolutely is a “hidden market” out there for your services. It’s just that now you have to “work it” like never before and make it your business to get the information and strategies you need to be successful. This applies whether you hire a professional career coach or educate yourself via the web.

Either way don’t sit around and wait to hear from something you applied for on a job board because you could be waiting a long, long time. Remember there ARE companies out there who are hiring. They’re just doing it in a very different way than you think.
