Record details

What it means It is estimated that around 70-75% of job vacancies are never advertised! One way to target this hidden job market is to write to employers asking if they have any vacancies. This type of letter is referred to as a ‘speculative letter’ or ‘spec letter’. By sending an employer your CV and a speculative letter you could be lucky and send in a letter just as a suitable position becomes available, or the company may keep you on file and consider you for future vacancies.
