The Hidden Job Market a Book Review

Jay Conrad Levinson and David E. Perry, authors of Guerrilla Marketing For Job Hunters start their discourse with a description of The Hidden Job Market. When an employer wants to find, for example, an engineer with experience with brake and exhaust systems, he might place an ad and hope a qualified applicant sees it, at some cost to the employer, or he can do a Boolean search with the Google search engine with the following string: intitle:resume brake.system exhaust.system education -jobs -apply -submit mechanical In this way he will find a large number of engineers with the sought for experience and education in an instant and save tons of money in advertizing fees in the process.Employers often do just that when they have a job to fill, therefore, those who have profile or about me pages on Facebook, linkiden and similar sites will come to the employer's attention as soon as he does the search.
