Build a Better Job Search

Are you using the Hidden Job Market to get jobs? If not, you may be missing out on up to 80% of open jobs that never get posted. This is the Hidden Job Market, and it's built on professional relationships. Find out how you can tap in to find your next job faster and build a better career.

The Typical Job Search is Broken

Too many people looking for work follow the same general pattern. They spend the first few months looking for jobs online, applying "cold", and never hearing back from employers. As time passes with little results, many people panic and start applying everywhere! This only leads to more rejections. It’s a vicious cycle that takes a lot of energy and creates a lot of frustration.

Wouldn’t it be nice to skip all the anger and frustration?

To avoid sending out hundreds of applications, often without any response?

To not lay awake at night wondering “why can’t I find the right job?”

All these things are possible when you take a strategic, relationships-first approach to your job search.

What Is the Hidden Job Market?

Simply put, the Hidden Job Market is driven by connections. It's human nature: People trust people they know. Employers hire people based on recommendations from trusted friends and colleagues. As a job seeker, you've got to become known and trusted by professionals in your field. Once you do that, you'll uncover hidden career opportunities through the people in your network.

Instead of wasting energy doing things that don’t work, this course teaches you proven practices and activities that work to get you a job faster, with less pain and frustration.

The result: you’ll spend less time in an endless cycle of job search rejection, and you'll get a great job sooner.

"Mac’s approach to a job search is targeted and, believe it or not, actually enjoyable. I’ve connected with other course participants who are on the same path. I'm still on my job search but I know that I am making positive progress. (So much better than spinning my wheels like I used to!) And when I find my dream job, I’ve got the tools to land it."

Here's what happened when Susan enrolled in Hack the Hidden Job Market


"It had been years since I'd searched for a job, so I was pretty clueless about where to start. Hack the Hidden Job Market appealed to me right away. I was in the process of changing careers, so learning about informational interviews was especially helpful. I leaned on the course right up to the end of my job search. I'm especially thankful for the interview prep tips that helped me feel poised and ready when that time came. I landed in a job that is a perfect fit, and the Job Hackers community definitely helped to get me there."

Dana Bertermann, Human Resources Business Partner, Shamrock Foods

Frequently Asked Questions


I’d like to purchase the course, but I don’t have a job (or income!)
I understand your situation… I’ve been out of work myself for two long periods in my career. But think of this as an investment in your career. If you follow the steps I outline in the course you could cut your period of unemployment in half. That means you get to work sooner and earn thousands of “extra” dollars in salary.
I've got a job. Why should I take this course?
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average worker will change jobs 11 times over the course of their working lives. Even if you're employed right now, you never know when you'll be on the search for your next opportunity. Perhaps your company will downsize? Or maybe you just want to find work that better aligns with your passion? The lessons I teach in this course can help nearly any professional who wants to advance their career, stay marketable, and find work that is meaningful and rewarding.
