More than 70% of today’s job opportunities come through the “hidden job market”: they’re never advertised, assigned to search firms or internal recruiters, or displayed at job fairs. What’s more, as employers cut recruiting costs, the proportion of “hidden” job opportunities is actually growing. And, since most jobseekers know practically nothing about it, those who do understand it have a powerful inside advantage. Now, two career experts reveal the hidden job market, and show how to use it to dramatically improve your chances of landing a job that fits your passions and skills perfectly. Duncan Mathison and best-selling author Martha Finney help you launch a custom, personal job search that avoids competing with thousands of desperate, laid-off job seekers. Learn how to: Use the hidden job market to leap-frog salary levels or even change professions Uncover hidden market opportunities, and your target employers’ unspoken needs and wants Tell your story in two minutes, and make people want to know more Get the interviews that count, and run them like a pro Network without sounding phony, lame or desperate Reframe experiences, passions, and hobbies as “transferrable skills” Build a strategic support team of advisors Identify a “dead-ended” job search, and get it restarted Negotiate compensation for “hidden” jobs.

Teddy Roosevelt once exclaimed, ''When I am in California, I am not in the West, I am west of the West,'' and in this book, Mark Arax sets out to explain just what TR meant. His is a compelling, sometimes ominous portrait of a place and its people who are often surviving on the edge, reliving history, and losing their way in the promised land: ''The Summer of the Death of Hilario Guzman'' is a deeply-felt portrait of an immigrant family from Oaxaca, followed through harrowing border crossings and raisin harvests; ''the Last Okie of Lamont,'' (the inspiration for the town featured in The Grapes of Wrath) has only one Okie left, who tells Arax his life story as he drives to a funeral to bury one more Dust Bowl migrant; and ''Highlands of Humboldt'' is a visit to the marijuana growing capital of the U.S., where the local bank collects a sizeable daily deposit of cash, most of which reeks of marijuana.Combining hard-hitting reporting and stellar writing, Arax captures both the atmosphere of social upheaval and the sense of being rooted in a community. Once you meet the people portrayed in this book, you won't forget them.
