Find the hidden job market - Trade contractors

Recommended Posts

I am a consultant in the WA Trade Contractor Industry. I have just rewritten an ebook, splitted into a 5-part series, on "5-steps on how to sell (smarter) through others in the Trade Contractors Industry" The point is that this may also be applicable to those who want to find a job in the hidden job market. You can download a summary at: PERTH BUSINESS CONSULTANTS - Home The content:

I believe that the concept of identifying "entities of influence" for your job market may be very applicable - although seen from an employer's side.

This is based on the work I have published for migrants to WA here: Perth Business Services - Home
