About Hidden Jobs

CareerCloud’s Hidden Jobs iOS app and website originally launched in 2011 under the domain HiddenJobsapp.com. It was designed to organize the many hiring announcements being written by newspapers, blogs and press release sites so that job seekers could learn about jobs that would soon be coming.

In 2013, CareerCloud integrated the site and iOS app into its product suite and pointed the old domain to jobs.careercloud.com which is the new permanent home. Now employers can post directly to Hidden Jobs and tell the world how many jobs they need to fill and why they’re hiring. 

For job seekers the advantages are obvious. They can get ahead of the job search competition. It lets them ‘company hunt’ by discovering companies in their area who are growing right now.
