Networking is connecting with people who can 1) give you information about a career field, organization, or geographic location that interests you, and 2) refer you to specific job openings. Up to 80% of all positions are filled without employer advertising. These positions are the Hidden Job Market and they are filled by – sometimes even created for – candidates who come to an employer's attention through such means as
employee recommendations, referrals from family, friends and professional associates, and recruiters. Networking – using your contacts to connect with an employer – is your key to the Hidden Job Market. (Source: Jobstar.org)
