I got that stat in an email from Execunet.
What exactly does that mean?
If it is true, it means that you need to have a great brand (so others can know of you), and you need to network.
Instead of relying on a job search strategy that depends on finding and applying to jobs online, it means you get out of your comfort zone and get to work.
It’s what we call “the hidden job market.” It’s real, and you should find it. It’s hiding in your network.
Now, get to work!
