The author says 80 percent of available jobs are not advertised.Remember the universal hiring rule: Any employer will hire any individual if he is convinced the decision will bring more value than it costs.Get an interview. Find out who makes the hiring decisions, and don't be discouraged by refusals.Make more money, have more fun. Be a pro at what you do, and learn to negotiate the salary you deserve.
