Finding A Job And Getting Hired Faster

Tips On Getting Hired Faster

Dennis Moran Hiring Coach & Recruiting ConsultantGood morning! Since I posted about that IT Job opening last week, I can't tell you how much email I've received from people looking for work asking me if I know of any more job listings. In short the answer is yes, however I'm not going to turn my business into a job listings board. I simply don't have the time to do that.

Instead I'm going to do something cooler, but first...

I want to introduce you to a friend of mine, Dennis Moran. He is a recruiting coach and a hiring consultant, which basically means that he teaches companies stuff like how to shorten the hiring process, or teaches them the right way to interview prospects, do salary negotiations, handle offer processes, and so on.

I've been working with him for a while now and I've been trying to get him to use his expertise in reverse. I figured since he's teaching companie how to find the right employees, he could also teach people get hired faster by teaching them how to be the right employee these companies are looking for.

Makes sense right?

Sadly he doesn't seem interested in doing a project like that, so... after much deliberation, I'm going to do it.

There are a lot of people out there looking for work and people that are hurting and quite frankly, they need this. I remember when I was out of work for 18 months before I started my business. I looked and couldn't find a lick and when I interviewed, despite all of the advice out there, I didn't get the job.

I know what it's like and I wished someone would have done this for me back then, so I'm doing it now.

There's a Chinese proverb that's been adapted to business, and in a nutshell, it says that if someone shares something with you and you benefit from it, then you have a moral obligation to share it with others.

So what I'm going to do is this. Since Dennis looks to me for exposure, I'm going to re-share all of the great advice he has on my blog and link back to him so he gets some traffic and exposure.

Then I'm going to sit down and write another book or do a coaching video that everyone can watch or read, and give Dennis the credit for his advice and input.

First, (as I know this is what you came here for).



There are two ways to find a job. One is to see a job post; apply for it; and hope that you get hired. The second is to find an opening in the hidden job market.

What is the Hidden Job Market?

It's not really hidden... you just have to look at strategically - make friends with a hiring manager.

When it is time to find another job, do not over look the hidden job market. According to a recent survey 80% of jobs are filled by companies who never advertised the position.

A lot of hiring managers look at the hiring process as a pain-in-the-neck, so the easier you can make it for them the better. Somebody, probably Human Resources, will be responsible for gathering candidates. The hiring manager will have to educate HR so they can source the correct candidates.

One of the questions that almost always gets misinterpreted is "what qualities will it take to be successful?" So the hiring manager interviews candidates that are off the mark and either can't do the job or don't want it. This is why the hidden job market is so valuable.

Most of the time, a person gets hired because they are seen the most. As of 2009, there are an estimated 15-25 candidates applying for each advertised job through human resources. This makes life for the hiring managers very difficult, so it is to your advantage to play the odds and stay in touch with hiring managers (with their permission) through direct contact.

This is essential, in addition, to applying to posted jobs and working with recruiters, to find a job is a full-time job. It increases your odds, so do it!

Here's some homework for youl

Forget official titles - Anyone that has any influence in the hiring process is a hiring manager.

First, what are the phone numbers and email addresses? Also consider these.

What is the address of the headquarters?
What is the address of the department a potential job could be in.
What is the name of the potential hiring manager?

Here comes the hard partt.... Call the potential hiring manager, then write down EVERYTHING about the company.

There's a lot more to go, but this should get you started.

My friend Dennis has the rest of the details and scripts you can use when calling, and they work!

I don't want to post his email for the whole world to see, so I've set up a form for him where you can email him to get the rest of the details and those scripts.

To send him a message, click here. (Opens in a new window).


Now, if you're interested in the book or video I've created a notification list for when it's done, and to make sure it's worth your while, I'm asking Dennis to provide content just for those that opt in. No sales stuff either, just straight up information to help you find a job faster.

Just fill in your first and last name and your email address, then confirm your email. That's it.

Every week I'll continue to share information from Dennis and even more than that, I will post jobs custom to you and your area on a new site and send out notifications.
