13 Dec The Hidden Job Market
- As these jobs have not been advertised, you may often be the only applicant!
- Up to 80% of all vacancies may not be advertised, so they never appear on seek, indeed etc.
Many organisations these days require you to address specific selection criteria when you apply for a job. It is a way for the employer to focus on the specific skills and abilities they need the person to have, to do the job.
Writing to selection criteria may seem difficult at first. However, like everything else, if you approach it systematically and practise it, you will continue to get better.
