Job-hunt without leaving footprints

by on
in Dealing with Bosses,Office Management

You’re prowling the job market for leads, but you’re not ready to tell your current employer that you’re thinking of leaving. Here’s how to proceed:

1. Drop hints. Let your boss know that you’re “looking for new challenges.” Mention good-naturedly that you’re restless. A promotion might materialize.

2. Set up secret informational interviews. That way, you’re not perceived as a candidate for a specific position. And if your boss finds out, you can honestly say you were learning about another company, not applying for a job.

3. Tell your bosses at the same time. Once you have a job offer, meet with your direct boss to share the news. Then tell all other key executives later that same day. Why? You want them to hear from you why you’re leaving.
