Driving through cold snowy conditions is bad enough, for people like Noah it’s even worse. Living in a remote area of Northern Georgina, public transportation isn’t regularly available, so Noah has to face the frigid temperatures and make the dangerous walk down the side of the icy road just to get to the closest bus stop so he can get to his part time job.
Noah’s story is not an uncommon scenario for residents who live in Northern Georgina. For the people who don’t own their own vehicle, they are left relying on unreliable public transportation. Some residents will opt to take an Uber from time to time, however a trip from Sutton to Newmarket can cost up to $80 each way.
Many employers who employ residents of Northern Georgina will try to set up car pools and ride sharing programs so that their employees are able to get to work without the heightened anxiety. However, many jobs are not posted on job search sites. Many of the employers who are willing to accommodate their employees transportation needs, fill available through the hidden job market.
So, how does somebody access the hidden job market?
