Terms like "accessing the hidden job market" and networking are thrown around in a lot of career advice but do you know what they really mean?
What is the Hidden Job Market?
Simply put, these are jobs that aren’t advertised publicly. These include internal postings, referrals, headhunter-sourced jobs, and jobs that are created specifically for top talent.

LinkedIn is the World’s largest collection of professionals (500M). The people who can influence your career are there. You just need to learn how to reach them.
