Hidden job market definition

Hidden job market refers to describe jobs which are not publicly advertised by the employer. The term hidden does not refer to the secrecy of the job but to the process of finding employees in a nonpublic way.

Employers may choose a hidden market method to reduce the cost of advertised posts and trim the time involved in the finding/hiring process.
