Using the Hidden Job Market in Your Job Search

In these economic times it is increasingly important to use the hidden job market in your job search. I recently went to the City of Parksville, Issued Building Permits site to find out what new developments are in the books and discovered that a building permit was issued to Qualicum School District and the contractor is Heatherbrae Builders. After a bit more internet research I found a document indicating that the project was to do seismic upgrading on Parksville Elementary. I gave the Nanaimo office of Heatherbrae Builders a phone call and the Site Supervisor indicated that work should be beginning by the end of May and continuing into the new year. Although they do have all the employees they need at this time for the project, they are open to receiving resumes by fax 250-716-0067 as staffing needs can change.
