Make sure you are the only person considered for your next role

We’ve all noticed that some people seem to climb the career ladder effortlessly, while others struggle rung by rung. But savvy operators know that what sets the first group apart is that they make their own opportunities.

As Australia’s leading career coach, I’ve worked side by side with some of the most ambitious people in the country, helping them move their careers rapidly forward.

In that time I’ve learned one key lesson: there are no shortcuts, but there are open doors.

The ‘trick’ to career progression is in getting the right doors to open for you.

In this lesson, I explain exactly how that’s done.

In the last lesson, I asked you to envisage a new approach to the job market. Rather than fighting off the competition, I invited you to imagine clear open waters in which you are the only person considered for a role.

You might be surprised to hear that 85% of jobs are never advertised.

If you’ve spent fruitless months applying for jobs advertised with little to show for it, perhaps this isn’t such a surprise.

If you’ve spent fruitless months applying for jobs advertised with little to show for it, perhaps this isn’t such a surprise.

Here is the key takeaway: there are two job markets.

The visible market of advertised jobs (only 15% of jobs)

The hidden market of jobs that haven’t been advertised yet plus the 85% of jobs that will never be advertised.

Your blue ocean job search means marketing yourself in a different way. Rather than fighting over the 15% of advertised roles in the visible job market, the key to your blue ocean strategy is networking to tap into the hidden job market.

I included these two lessons on the Market of One in this free mini-course on making LinkedIn work for you because LinkedIn is a powerful networking platform.

The information contained in this five-day mini-course is invaluable. And if you’ve made it through this week of lessons, I want you to benefit from the full program.

I’ve distilled the lessons learned over the past X years as Australia’s leading career coach into these courses so that you can have easy access to the knowledge required to sidestep the pitfalls and reach your career goals.

Bonus Tips

Here are some bonus tips for the dedicated few who have completed this mini-course. I want to deliver some final tips that will help you stand out in a competitive job market.

Steps you can take today to execute your blue ocean strategy using LinkedIn:

1. Drive your job situation instead of reacting to it by networking long term.

  • Make connections on LinkedIn with people you know and new people you meet in the real world.
  • Comment on people’s posts regularly so that you stay visible and at the forefront of their mind.
  • Congratulate people when they post their professional successes and offer support when they share their challenges.

2. Get ahead of the pack by tapping into the hidden job market.

  • Create and capture new demand rather than fighting competitors for visible jobs.
  • Add keywords to your profile that make it easier for recruiters and hiring managers to find.
  • Like all social networking sites, you’re more visible the more you interact, so update your account regularly with news items and tips relevant to your industry.

3. Persuade people in your network to vouch for you.

  • Build quality relationships so that people can’t help but rave about you and feel confident that you’ll live up to their recommendation.
  • Ask for Recommendations on LinkedIn.
