Q1 : What is The Hidden Job Market course? 
A: Up to 80% of jobs are hidden within referral networks, word of mouth and direct headhunting. The Hidden Job Market is an online course that teaches job seekers and career-changers of any level how to navigate today's job market and uncover hidden career opportunities. You'll learn how to tackle common roadblocks such as résumé-writing, searching beyond the online job boards and how to build a useful network. 

Also, all the lessons are available immediately for you to take at your own pace/ 

Q2: Who is the course for?
A: If you're unemployed, underemployed or looking to change industries then you'll benefit from the course. They say the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. If you're frustrated with the typical job search process of waiting for new jobs to be posted everyday, applying to blackholes, or can't land your first "break" or feel pigeonholed in your current industry then keep reading. 

Q3 Who is the course NOT for?
A: If you're looking for advice on getting freelance jobs, trade apprentices, entry-level labouring, internships, serving or retail jobs then the course won't be a fit.  This course has been designed for people who are looking for professional jobs primarily in the corporate world or senior blue collar industry. I also don't believe in internships (working for free) so I don't encourage people to pursue them. EVERYONE has skills or energy worth paying for. 

Q4: Do I have to be an Ivy League graduate?
A: Heck no. You don't even need a degree. Everything in this course is based on actual experience interviewing and landing jobs at Apple, lululemon and two of the biggest recruitment company's in North America. 

Q5: I already search for jobs online using Indeed, Monster and LinkedIn - aren't all jobs posted online?
A:
Those are great resources but it's widely understood that most of the job market (up to 80%, see Forbes) is hidden; that is, via professional networks, referrals and directly recruiting former colleagues or employees. This course teaches you, step-by-step, how to access that market by building your professional network via LinkedIn. 

Q6: What makes you so qualified to teach me how to access the hidden job market?
A: Great question - and you're right to ask. I was a recruitment consultant/headhunter for the world's largest recruitment firm and also for the largest private Canadian recruitment firm. Additionally, I've landed jobs at two of the biggest known brands - Apple and lululemon athletica (two of the most difficult companies to get hired at). I've spent the last few years coaching and mentoring job seekers, and career-changers, and I still take on recruitment contracts and projects for small to medium companies. Also, all of the jobs I landed were either via referral or a mutual connections using the strategies I teach in my course.  

Q7: What's the format of the course? I don't want to just read about it. 
A: Neither would I. The course is a mixture of video presentations/podcast lessons, worksheets and word-for-word templates I've used to build my network and land interviews. It's all delivered by me with the exception of some guest interviews which I plan to add later. 

Q8: Does the audio suck? I enrolled in an e-course a while ago and the audio was so poor I could hardly get into the content
A: Ah, that's unfortunate. I have a private recording area with a professional, top-rated mic. The audio works best on regular speakers or headphones, without the bass turned up. 

Q9: I don't have a computer - can I view it on a tablet or my phone?
A: Yes, the entire course is compatible on your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. 

Q10: I'm [one of the following], is this course for me?

  • A returning mum/dad/parent

  • Late in my career

  • A former Veteran

  • A new immigrant

  • A new graduate

  • Career-changer

  • Unemployed

A: Yes, the course has been specifically been designed for people just like you to help you overcome common barriers to employment. I know what it feels like to be searching for a new career, or new to a city, or an immigrant "with an accent". By employing the strategies in the course I've been successful and landing jobs and winning the interview process more often than not. 

Q11: I have a full-time job, how much time is this going to take?
A: The course has been laid out for you to follow at your own pace and if you have a full-time job and aren't looking to make a move immediately but want to have a structured game plan to make the right move, you can do this in your own time. You could easily do one lesson a night or per week, it's up to you. 

There's over 3 hours of video lessons (as well as coaching from me). You can take each step as quickly or slowly as you like. 

Q12: As a student, will I get access to new content that you add later?
A: Yes, always. I don't believe in nickel and diming students as new content gets added. However, as the course gets upgraded the price will increase for new members. So they earlier you join, the more you'll save. 

Q13: I live in [Insert country] will this work for me?
A: 
Yes, The Hidden Job Market is NOT country specific. Although references are in dollars, the concepts, strategies and methods are universal. I've used or coached these strategies with success in the UK, the US, Australia, New Zealand, and throughout Europe. 

Q14: Are there payment plans?
A:
Not at the moment. There will be in the future. 

Q15: Do you offer refunds?
A: 
Yes, absolutely. You have a full 30 days to decide if the course if for you. However, the material in the course works and you'll have to show you've made a true effort with the resources with a worksheet I have. Also, if you've already booked services such as the 20 minute coaching call, résumé review, etc. then the value of those will be deducted. 

Q16: Can you guarantee me finding a job?
A: 
While I do enjoy a high level of success with my clients, I cannot guarantee you finding a job. I can guarantee that you'll learn new strategies, uncover truths about the recruitment process and my time with one-one-one coaching. I'll also share with you everything I've learned during my time in the recruitment industry and what has helped me land jobs at top companies.
