Guerrilla Marketing also provides job hunters with methods of uncovering opportunities in the "hidden job market" by using the ZoomInfo search tool.

Its summarization search technology provides users with complete Web summaries as a result of any search query, putting all the information needed for a successful conversation in one place.
" When it comes to Guerrilla Networking, ZoomInfo is the top player," said Guerrilla Marketing coauthor, David Perry. "ZoomInfo has the largest database of professionals in America, making it the best place to find networking fodder."

"Another facet of the job hunt is making sure you are available for prospective employers to find you. It's no longer just important to know the right people, but to make sure that you can be found by people you don't know, who may want to hire you," said Perry. "Managing your online persona by updating your Web summary on a site like ZoomInfo is one of the steps all job hunters should be taking."
