What do you think these numbers represent? 24,297,000 and 2.6
This 24,297,000 number comes from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and represents the
'hire levels and rates by industry and region, seasonally adjusted.'
The 2.6 stands for the number of jobs that went UNFILLED - 2.6 million!
Do you recall seeing 24 million job postings in a year? Me either!
Bottom line is that employers are not advertising many of these positions because they are not prepared to deal with the overwhelming responses they receive that have to be filed, tracked, and more for EEOC purposes. The job market has produced people in desperate situations who are applying for any and every job which equates to hours of staff time to file, track, and reply to the resumes. Therefore, many jobs remain unadvertised, meaning it is ESSENTIAL you learn the new ways available to tap into the hidden job market.
If your program is still operating under Job Search 1.0 and 2.0 (classified ads and job boards), be prepared to take your job searching skills to a brand new, elevated level and how to position your consumer as the hunted!

About Kristen Jacoway
Kristen Jacoway graduated from Auburn University with B.S. and M.S. degrees in Vocational Counseling. She has worked in a wide variety of HR-related capacities from job search counseling to coaching staff to achieve peak performance to working with local Alabama businesses to develop job leads. Her one aim was to help people have a rewarding career.
But it became even more personal when her husband’s job was off-shored, bringing an abrupt end to his 20-year manufacturing career. As he looked for a new job, she saw the job search process from the other side, and it became quickly evident that the employment market had changed completely. The previously tried-and-true techniques of resumes and cover letters were not enough. Social media had changed the game.
Always one to embrace new technologies –she comes by it honestly, her dad was a NASA rocket scientist!– she learned everything she could about social media and social networks. She also studied with personal branding industry experts, like Reach’s William Arruda, earning numerous certifications.
In 2008, she launched Career Design Coach, a career coaching company that combines personal brand, traditional career marketing and social media strategies. She is very proud to have helped senior executives, students and entrepreneurs here in my local community of Auburn as well as across Alabama to have happier, more productive professional lives.
