Are you mindlessly drilling through Monster and its clones, thinking you've got access to "all the jobs in the world" (or in your field and desired geographic region)? There may very well be other opportunities lurking out there. You'll never know about them if you don't keep dancing--that is, network, ask, connect, and use good old fashioned hunches.

Some good reasons employers don't post jobs (think 5,000 applications... on the first day alone; think replacement for someone who doesn't know he or she is going to be unemployed really soon...) And some ways to keep your antennae up and your intuition humming.
