Find the Jobs No One Else Is; Personal Marketing Firm ERI Unlocks Doors to Unadvertised Career Opportunities in 5 Ways

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - Right now, there are thousands of jobs available that may be perfect for many people looking for work, but they won't hear about them, find them on any job board or see them in the want-ads. That's because there is an immense, thriving market of positions companies don't advertise.

ERI, a personal marketing firm specializing in assisting executives and professionals in their career search, developed a list of five ways you can break into this unadvertised market.

"The best possibilities may be unpublished," Robert Gerberg, CEO of ERI, said. "Private jobs are a mystery to most. But there's nothing mysterious about them. There's easy ways to get in the game for great positions others don't know about."

1. Corporate leaders and upper management have leverage when it comes hiring. Find out who they are and send them your resume, and you'll have a valuable ally on your side in the job search.

2. Give your resume to non-web recruiters. While the Internet is growing in popularity as the place to look for jobs, that doesn't mean it's the only place. And the more you look, the better your chances are of finding a job.

3. Place your resume with venture capitalists. Investors need the best people to enhance their business or people who can help them get a startup off the ground. Sell yourself to them; they're buying. 

4. Network contacts, influential alumni and industry leaders. Get over your reservations, and get to know people through friends, groups, clubs, the Internet, etc. New business coming to an area, major contracts being awarded, record sales -- all are signals of jobs being created. Targeting more companies and contacts will only help, and not trying will only hurt. 

5. Board members carry influence; they carry a lot of influence. Getting them to see your resume could exponentially increase your chances of getting a position within the company if they see something they like. Get your resume in their hands.
