Are all job openings advertised?

Look for Work
Answer

Not all job openings are advertised to the public. Employers often don't have time to place job ads and go through all of the resumés that arrive on their desks, so they hire people they know, or someone who has been referred to them. 

To find these unadvertised jobs network with your friends, family members and neighbours to let them know that you are looking for a job in case they hear of an opening.

You can also contact an employer directly. Once you know which company you’d like to work for, you’ll need to find the right person to contact.
