Looking For Work? Here's How To Find The 'Hidden' Jobs

AOL.COM - Sometimes, you just have to know where to look. With official unemployment stuck in the 9% range, jobs continue to be as hard to find as the proverbial needle in a haystack. HiddenJobsApp.com is doing its part to make the hunt a little easier.

Since launching in the spring, HiddenJobsApp.com has been tracking companies that are growing and hiring by sifting information not just from company sources but also from newspaper articles, online media, public announcements, and more. Many of these positions haven't been widely advertised, which can give users of its website and smartphone app a competitive edge.

"We make the job search more efficient, since we do all the legwork and the site is updated daily with new leads," says Chris Russell, founder of HiddenJobsApp and CEO of AllCountyJobs.com. They suss information in ways you might not and that many traditional job sites don't, like flagging articles profiling companies that talk about expected expansions.

HiddenJobsApp.com just released its list of the 10 states with the most "hidden" jobs:

1. Florida (23,598)
2. California (21,562)
3. Ohio (16,668)
4. Indiana (15,355)
5. Tennessee (12,042)
6. Michigan (11,778)
7. Texas (8,519)
8. North Carolina (8,062)
9. Georgia (7,839)
10. New York (7,128)

Florida was hard hit by the Great Recession, so it's surprising to see them on top. Also a surprise -- how well Midwestern states like Ohio and Michigan fared. "Jobs are being created there again," says Russell. Click here to read more
