Updated Presentation from CareerZoo, September 2011:
To search LinkedIn for “hidden jobs” just change the search option in the top right hand corner from “People” to “Updates” and try something like this:
(Job OR Jobs OR opportunity OR vacancy OR hiring OR employ) Location Skills
replacing Location and Skill with the town/ city and profession/ skill that you have. Dont forget to play around with different titles and skills, people often use different synonyms and related terms to describe the same thing.
You will need to filter the results by country by finding the Location filter on the left hand side of the results and entering the country name you want to filter by. For those in the UK, US, Australia and other major countries, you can filter by location that the recruiter is based in. When you find an opportunity you can either connect directly with the recruiter advertising the position or comment on their post. Either way they will receive an instant notification and can then check out your profile on LinkedIn to see if you are suitable.
Who’s Hiring People Like You:
To find out which companies are most likely to hire people like you, just enter your skill, qualification or job title into the People Search box in the top right hand corner of the LinkedIn home screen. When the results come up, use the filters down the left hand side to select your country/ city and then check out the Top 5 employers. You can expand this list to 10 by clicking on “Show More”. To find contacts in these companies click on the Advanced Search button in the top right hand corner (“Advanced”) and enter the company name in the “Company” field, choosing “Current” from the drop down menu immediately below the filter and enter this in the text field:
(HR OR human OR recruitment OR recruiter OR recruiting OR people OR talent)
You should find plenty of relevant contacts whom you can connect with about vacancies in that company.
