Finding a Hidden Job
Hidden jobs are not advertised as open positions. You may approach them with an open application. An up-to-date LinkedIn profile is also helpful in attraction their interest. Stay up to date by follow the news in your field. You can also gather relevant information by following the social media channels of the enterprises that interest you. By doing this you can notice possible changes in their activities and are able to offer them your skillset as an appropriate opportunity emerges.
A hidden job may also become an actual opening when an appropriate applicant offers their skills to a company precisely at the right time. The applicant’s own activity is essential in landing a hidden job. Hence, you should invest in your job-seeking skills.
Our business coordinators can also help you in looking for a job. Alternatively, you can get in touch with one of our services that helps you to look for employment. Contact your OMA coach to learn more information about these services.
An individual path to working life
A route to working life can also be tailored. This will enable you to familiarize yourself with a job and to try it out in an actual work environment on a low threshold in a field that you are interested in. The individual paths are usually aimed at fields where new qualified people are needed. The qualifications required for the tasks at hand will be obtained or complemented as a job/collaboration that directly matches the employer’s needs. Ask your OMA coach for more information.
