Shhhh!

  • Don’t tell co-workers or your manager you are job hunting, no matter how close you are. And it’s not a good idea to use them as references.
  • Don’t use your company’s phone, fax, copier, email, etc. to search for a new job. Not only is it unethical, communications are often monitored. Use your personal email, phone and home address as contact information on applications and your resume.
  • Schedule interviews before/after work or during lunch breaks. If you must take time off work for an interview, tell your boss you are taking off for personal reasons; don’t lie about illness or a death in the family.
  • Don’t give notice until you have a job offer in writing.
