Career Services Presents: Learning About Careers in Your Field
Many jobs are never advertised. This is known as “the hidden job market,” and you will learn the variety of strategies employers use to find candidates, and how you can match their approach when you are seeking to explore careers and learn about employers. You’ll also discover what is meant by “the labour market,” why it’s important to your career exploration, where you can find information relevant to the jobs that interest you, and how to use this information in making important decisions. The final topic is building your professional network, because it’s the connections you make as opposed to the postings you find that can open the most interesting opportunities.
