Work with headhunters and recruiters
Add headhunters and recruiters to your job search, as companies often partner with them for confidential positions.
While headhunters are technically there to advocate for you, they work with many candidates and will typically advocate hardest for the candidate who is most likely to be hired, since that will result in their commission. Partnering with recruiters is an additional strategy, but it should not be your only one.
Be proactive, talk with your existing connections, add new connections to your network and ask for that referral. These strategies will make your job search more productive than relying on the “job board lottery” and will form a pathway to the hidden job market. Most importantly, these steps will help you to land at a company that aligns with your goals.
