NOVATO, Calif. (January 9, 2012) -- All professionals know the old saying; the best time to look for a job is when you have a job. But how do you mount an effective job search under the very nose of your employer? How do you tap your professional network without alerting your boss that you are looking?

Networking is the most effective way to look for a job. But if you are employed, how can you conduct an effective job search and network without setting off alarms? How can you use social networks without the word spreading and your communication going viral? According to Ross, the most successful job searches are the result of high-yield strategies, executed well that allow you to quietly and safely pursue opportunities. You need to know how to network effectively and quietly, launching an aggressive search in stealth mode.

In this session of Experts Connection, Ross will provide hands-on strategies, including:

- How to develop “quiet” communications that moves your job search forward, but without raising alarms.
- How to manage your LinkedIn profile for effective stealth search.
- How to work with recruiters and even a potential employer to ensure that you remain under the radar.
- How to apply creative “out of the box” tactics, including one that is so simple and so effective, it’s a wonder more people aren't doing it.

There is a misconception that effective networking requires you to make a lot of noise to promote visibility,” said Katherine Simmons, CEO of NETSHARE and host of the Experts Connection webinars. “The truth is that you can be very subtle and maintain a low profile and build an incredibly effective online presence that will pave the way for your next career move, without making anyone suspicious. Ross is an expert at demonstrating how to make the most of your online job search and he has a number of valuable tactics for anyone looking to conduct a quiet job search.”
