Hidden Job Market with Donald Asher

9/8/17 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Are you spending your time applying to posted job openings—postings that draw hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of applications? No matter how perfect you are for the job, there is always someone else who’s a little more qualified and more experienced. The key to success is breaking through to the hidden job market.

Career guru Donald Asher offers proven strategies for finding great opportunities in any industry. After hearing this presentation, you’ll stop wasting time and effort and beat the job-search odds by:

  • finding jobs that are never posted 
  • getting complete strangers to help you find a job
  • convincing potential employers to give you an interview—even when they’re “not hiring”
