There is a Hidden Job Market - And It's Us

Bob CavotoManaging Principal, 20/20 Foresight

20/20 Foresight Executive Marketing and Job Finding, is a unique fee-based Program that “outsources” your job search to us, experts in your industry and in the field of job finding.  The Program provides a consultant and a researcher, and expertise in your industry in career guidance, writing compelling resume(s), extensive interview coaching and introductions by us to companies and recruiters who are seeking an Executive like you!

A hidden job market consists of vacancies that companies have not yet made public. Traditionally, job seekers must rely on “networking” to access this market - which is limiting and, let’s face it, no one has the network to access 80% to 99% of this market; 20/20 Foresight Executive Marketing and Job Finding does.

Navigating the job market alone can be challenging; finding these hidden opportunities can be difficult, and determining where to start can be the hardest part. When an executive is accepted into our highly selective Executive Marketing program, they are paired with one of our consultants who is an invaluable resource throughout the process. Our consultants work with executives to develop a plan and timeline for strategically leveraging their information into the market. Consultants also build resumes that are customized for each market and conduct rigorous interview coaching to prepare executives for face-to-face meetings. In addition, consultants work with our in-house researchers to get information to key hiring contacts on the executive’s behalf, easing the burden of tracking correspondences.

As a well-known player in the real estate and financial industries, 20/20 Foresight has thousands of connections in small, midsize, and large companies - all of whom look to us for quality recommendations to fit their needs. Through our US and global databases, we connect job seekers to companies and recruiters. More importantly, 20/20 Foresight connects job seekers with the right people, ensuring that every executive’s information is handed directly to decision makers rather than automated systems or screeners. Employers value this reference because it removes the hassle and expense of hiring a search firm, handling multiple inquiries, screening resumes, and sorting through candidates to interview.

The main reason why the hidden job market is so large is that most employers are more comfortable working with people they know, even if referred by a secondary or tertiary connection. Employers view hiring a candidate referred by a connection as less risky than hiring a stranger. Traditionally, job seekers rely on their connections to access this hidden market - yet the typical job seeker is often limited to two levels of connections: personal, such as family and friends, and professional, such as co-workers and clients. With 20/20 Foresight’s 92% placement success rate, we are confident that our expert consultants can distribute a candidate’s interests and information far beyond the scope of their immediate connections to help them tap into that hidden job market.
