Looking for a new job while you're employed has advantages but it also comes with risks. Here's how to approach your job search - without getting cut.
Don't use company resources when searching
Conducting your job search on your current company’s time or dime is never a good idea. During office hours, your current job should be your primary focus. Underperforming will tip off your boss and colleagues that something is going on. It's unethical and disrespectful, and not likely to garner a great recommendation from your present company when the time comes.
Recruiters understand discretion is often part of the process, and are willing to do what they can to keep things discreet, so be up front with them.
