\ em-'ploi-yer-izm \

n.

A portmanteau of the nouns 'employer' and 'voyeurism', which when blended can either signify the act of searching for an employer or the practice of an employer when looking to fill a position.

Derived from the words 'voyeur' meaning 'one who looks' and 'employer' meaning 'one who makes use of'. The term employerism places an emphasis on the hidden and secretive connotations of the word 'voyeur', denoting a clandestine and thus superior form of knowledge based employment search.
