Tapping Into The Hidden Job Market

Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac: 3,000+ Jobs

From the New York Times:

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are suffering from an exodus of senior and midlevel managers. The companies have been unable to replace executives who have either been pushed aside as part of last year’s government takeover, or who sought refuge at less stigmatized companies offering better pay and a more predictable future.

News articles are another great resource for finding the elusive hidden job market. A quick search at Indeed.com shows that Fannie Mae has over 1,300 openings

Try running the same Indeed search for Freddie Mac openings.

THEN: run a Google search to look for real people and call for information on the opening!!  As we noted in a previous post, clicking the ‘Apply Now’ button either at a job board or a company’s web site is highly ineffective and unlikely to help you land a job.
