The hidden labour market of the academic
The theme of this presentation derives from The hidden labour market of the academic project. The main purpose of this project was to get an understanding of the so-called hidden labour market and also to explore the nature of the recruitment channels of the hidden labour market. In this project the data was collected by the delphi method from experts in two rounds: a questionnaire and a virtual discussion forum via the Internet. In this presentation I will examine the following questions: 1) in what way the hidden labour market differs from the open labour market, 2) in what way formal recruitment differs form informal recruitment, 3) why the academic should try to find a job through the hidden labour market and use informal recruitment channels 4) why the employer should use informal recruitment channels and 5) what is the role of the hidden labour market in Finland at present and also in the future.
