Product Description

What’s the fastest, easiest, and best way to find a job today?

Unless your parents own the company, there’s only one answer:  tap the hidden job market. Why?  Because over 70% of all available jobs are not advertised...which means almost no one has applied for them yet.

If you can find them, you’ll be in the ‘sweet spot’ at the front of the line…in the direct view of the hiring manager.  The more you find, the faster you’ll get a job.

Think about how much better that is than a ‘typical’ job search:  You probably spend a lot of time applying online for posted jobs.  But so do a thousand other applicants.   Your application gets lost in the flood and you never get an interview.  The end result is:  not only do you not have a job, you feel like no one will ever want to hire you.

Forget that.  You NEVER have to feel like that again.

My Hidden Jobs Finder is like a job-search bloodhound.  It will lead you straight to actual jobs in your field.  Great jobs.  And it will show you how to talk to the person with the power to say ‘You’re Hired’.

Finding hidden jobs and contacting the hiring manager directly is THE most effective way to find a job today.  Most people who use the Hidden Jobs Finder get great jobs in a matter of weeks, and many of them get multiple job offers.

Multiple job offers...Need I say more?

The Hidden Jobs Finder will take you step-by-step through the most successful job search of your life:

  • Find names and contact information of hiring managers in your field
  • Get in front of hundreds of hiring managers in a just a few hours
  • Market yourself as a great job candidate
  • Save time in your job search
  • Keep your job search a secret from your current boss
  • Communicate with hiring managers using provided, customizable scripts
  • Stay organized with a methodical, proven system
  • Look all over the country, or just in your current area
  • Get lots of interviews

Whether you’re a new graduate, a seasoned executive, or someone in between, the Hidden Jobs Finder is your key to finding the job you want.

  1. Peggy –
    It’s too early in the process to tell if it works or not. I’m following your lead in the hope that the process works. From my point of view, I plan to judge “Success” as to having accepted a position through your process. I plan to view “Failure” as to not receiving at least one offer through your process.

    Please let me know if my expectations for success and failure meet your expectations.

      That is certainly a fair way to judge the product. I’m confident that if you put forth the effort required you will achieve a successful outcome.

    At least a good tool to start something different and to create new contacts with key leaders.
    Nevertheless every industry has its specificity and not everything can be use.

    I wanted to get into Market Research sector in Health care so I contacted about 8 managers and of the 8, 3 replied back and 2 opportunities came my way. The two opportunities at the time weren’t my ideal situation. One was in the Chemical industry (which wasn’t my preference) and the other was in Health care but it was only part-time.

    Since I was transitioning into this, I decided to take the part-time opportunity to gain experience in this field. The part-time turned into full time which eventually landed me a permanent position within the company. I’m extremely happy that I decided to pursue your Hidden Job Finder training. All the little tricks you showed has helped. This is the most effective way to get a Job and I wanted to thank you for sharing your secrets!!

    Like John “It’s too early in the process to tell if it works or not. I’m following your lead in the hopes that the process works. From my point of view, I plan to judge “Success” as to having accepted a position through your process.”

    However, I am very excited about learning the stuff I am learning. You and Carl Chapman do a great job on giving us insite about the job finding business. Stay tuned!!!

    I am very pleased with all of the knowledge and insight that I have received with this system. My biggest disapointment is with regard to the changes that Linked in has implemented and it has made the system alittle more time consuming. The system claims that 100 managers can be reached in 2 hours. The new methods take twice that long, but still a very helpful system. Thank You

    I am a little disappointed- I recall during the webinar hearing that I woudl be able to download the modules and listen in the car- but now that I have them, that does not seem possible. That would be a welcomed improvement! As well as being able to scan through the long ones and not listen straight through.

      Mark, all of the modules can be downloaded and while you are on the site, you can randomly access to any portion of the video by dragging the ‘nub’ on the video control bar. Please let us know if you have trouble with that.

    Hi Peggy,
    I can’t swear it is the right approach until I land that dream job, but you have made me into a believer. I am convinced that this will work, because you explained so well why it will work. I realized I haven’t been pursuing my dream job because I didn’t think it was possible to find it. After one week with HJF I believe that job is out there, and I’m going to find it!

    Peggy, thanks for the reminder to post a rating. Like some others above, it’s just a bit early for me to report success, since I just started the effort.

    Having said that, I find the program well organized and very helpful. It’s doing exactly what you advertised and I’m well on my way to success.

    My comments for improvement? Frankly, I’d say that you’re assuming (always dangerous!!) that buyers of the HJF program are all “beginners” in this type of effort. So my recommendation is to to at least post an “advanced” module that skips some of the “how to” info and really get into the meat of the issue. An example of this is my case: I have the need to find and sort for “Presidents & CEO’s” under job title. This is a bit more tricky, so an advanced module would be helpful.

    Your customer service is outstanding. I’ve always received an almost immediate response to my questions directly from you or Carl. This is very much appreciated.

    I strongly recommend this program. I truly believe that over 90% of actual job seekers (not recruiters) don’t know how to use LinkedIN; the HJF program certainly answers the question!

    This approach does help. It is the approach my uncle taught me back in the 70’s when there was not much HR or Personnel, as we used to call them.

    Hi Peggy & Carl:

    It has been an exciting experience using the HJF system once I completed setting-up my profile on LinkedIn.

    As a matter of fact, prior to completing my profile, I had been discussing a position with a recruiter and could not get my foot in the door. But, the day after I set-up my profile per the HJF instructions, the same recruiting company (different rep)coincidently contacted me offering two positions that day and a phone interview the next day, which was successful and they offered either one of the positions on the spot. I told them, “I needed to think about it” & they are now patiently awaiting my response. We have talked almost everyday for the last week negotiating SALARY! That was a non-issue before…

    Now, the shoe is on the other foot. I know how powerful & how much leverage the Hidden Job Finder will be once I have finished all the modules and email my searches list.

    Thanks a lot, my salary will probably increase 25% in 2012. I’ll keep you posted!

    I am learning some valuable tips and tricks with the back door. However, my specific issue is that the hiring manager for my target company is likely a CEO or possibly CIO of a larger company. Those types are not on Linked In much if at all. So I have learned at least to use Linked In network through the groups to sponsor me into a CEO. Can’t complain about that!

    Just to update, I have an interview on Tuesday that I’m hoping leads to an offer! I used Peggy’s system to contact the VP of Technology Delivery in the company who I did not know about the 2 previous times I’ve applied to this company for the same position. But this time, it worked! She forwarded my resume to the Training Manager who referred my info to the HR Manager who called last Friday. After that conversation, she told me that she was going to have the Training Manager contact me, she called yesterday. Now here’s the interesting part. The training manager tells me that the company is in transition with new VP’s etc…and they probably can’t have an onsite interview until the week of the 23rd at the earliest, until new people come onboard. Well that all changed yesterday afternoon when I was emailed by the Training Manager and HR that they wanted me to come in for an onsite interview next week! So whatever I said during the phone interview with the TA worked and got her to get the approval from the current VP.

    Anyway, interestingly enough, my interview is with the TA first, followed by the VP I originally sent my resume to, then someone in the Services department and finally the HR Manager! So I’m thinking, why would they have me meet with the VP and this other person unless maybe I was their choice and then HR at the end for the offer? Sounds good and interesting and so I have Peggy to thank if this works out…

    At first I did not believe in the product! But since I had heard about a lot of difficulties some of my friends had to deal with when finding a job, I decided to trust the product, and now I am really proud of my decision! Up to this point, I have sent around 200 hundred messages to different managers and I have gained around 20 email addresses from them. I am sure if I follow up my conversations with them I can find not only one job but multiple ones. I even talked to one of the managers directly.
    Thank you Peggy!

    Dear Peggy:
    Thank you very much for a fantastic presentation. It is funny, looking back I got all my employment opportunities by going directly to the hiring manager bypassing HR and as you said it always works. Once again thank you for an outstanding presentation.

    After completing the tutorial late yesterday, I received a notice in my in box for an opportunity within both my field and market. Following the skills taught in the tutorial, I was able to get directly to the hiring, received his e-mail address and within about 90 minutes came to a conclusion on this opportunity.

    While it didn’t come out positive, I didn’t have “Specialty and Broker” skills, it did reinforce the training. In fact, the hiring stated “You will be successful, as you are clearly a creator and not a taker”. I realize this is partly to justify his not offering me the position, but I also believe this speaks to the direct, positive approach taught in the tutorial.

    Thank you for this valuable learning tool. I know it will payout in the long run towards finding the company and career that marry well with my skill sets.

    Hi Peggy and Carl,

    My name is Mikhail. I came to Canada in September last year and I have been looking for a job in software quality assurance since then. While there are many open positions my job search is still ongoing.

    I have tried many job search approaches, have been networking a lot, participated in job fairs, etc.

    Last month I came across the ad of Career Confidential webinars. These webinars and many of free products of Career Confidential proved to be very impressive. Peggy offers an alternative approach for job search based primarily on sales techniques.

    Peggy is absolutely right when states that recruiters look for perfect candidates. But there are many reasons why I cannot be a perfect candidate. That is why an online job search is inefficient and frustrating for me. It is enough to say that I had only three interviews in four months.

    And I really enjoyed the latest webinar “Why online applications are killing your job search”. Many resume-writing tips are very useful. Among them are a new idea for resume’s objective and recommendation to include the candidate’s address.

    Two other parts of job search – how to approach a hiring manager and 30-60-90 days plan as a part of interview preparation – also look very promising. Direct addressing to a hiring manager helps avoid a recruiting filter, while a 30-60-90 plan is an excellent idea how to influence the interviewer to discuss future job and minimize unnecessary and sometimes trouble-making talks about candidate’s experience.

    And the last but not least: my special thanks to Peggy for the final candidate’s question at an interview. It is an incredible idea.

    Thank you,

    Mikhail

    I have a job!! You won’t believe this…

    I just started using your HJF messages. I sent several messages “To Get the Manager’s Email Address” on LinkedIn. I sent a few “First Contact” messages to hiring managers in my LinkedIn network who I already had their email. I got a job offer today, Monday, as a result of one of those First Contacts from last Tuesday! My LinkedIn connection is a friend of my new boss. This job was never posted. It is a direct hire. Your resume layout and training to directly contact hiring managers paid off after sending only 13 messages!

    I admit, my timing was lucky. But that’s the point of multiple touching your sales leads! I just happened to hit someone who was ready to buy immediately. My salary on my first day of work will pay for HJF and your resume product.

    Thanks, it worked better than expected.

    Very nicely done. I use all three (Indeed, Simply Hired, Google Alert) areas you addressed, but your explanation in the video really took the use of three areas to the next higher level which is very much appreciated, especially that dealing with finding someone’s email address. Much thanks.

    Your Hidden Job Finding strategy is crystal clear, and provides me with an excellent roadmap to contact the hiring managers. To date I have only sent 25 mails to get contact details ( in one week, tuesday to thursday!) and got 4 answers, 16% success rate after first mail!

    For the ones who did not answer my first mail asking for their contact details, do you recommend to send one more mail via linkedin with same message ?

    Thank you in advance
    Ed

      Congratulations on your success! That’s wonderful. You can send another message to hiring managers who don’t respond to your first one in a week or two if you like, but it’s much more valuable to go find another hiring manager. Best of luck!

    Happy New Year and thank you for your support during my job search.

    While I was skeptical about your methodical process, I purchased your job search product anyway. I had been searching for over a year with no results, so why not try something new. As an accounting professional, I kept detailed records of my search. In 2013 alone, prior to using your system, I had sent out 51 applications, received a 45% response, and received 14 first interviews (27%). But no job offer.

    My targeted search, using the Career Confidential system, began in October 2013. I targeted AIA Contacts (architectural firms), past interviewers, and friends. More importantly, I joined no less than 10 LinkedIn groups. From within these groups, I LinkedIn messaged 96 first time contacts and received 18 responses back within one month: this is 18.75% which I find staggering!

    My successful response came almost one month after sending out my first message titled “Versatile Accountant Seeking New Opportunity.” A hiring manager that had no need for an accountant on October 14 suddenly had the need on November 15. He contacted me via LinkedIn, my personal email, as well as by telephone for our first interview on November 20. After a social lunch on November 22, I was offered the position on November 25. It is the ideal position I desired, the pay above expectation, and reasonable benefits.

    Your system worked! I am so pleased I decided upon Career Confidential.

    Thank you.
