How To Search For Jobs Without Your Employer Detecting by insidifyguru: 8:44am On Dec 23, 2014
Searching for a job while employed brings along some perks; you have an advantage of experience, you don’t have to worry so much about not getting the intended job, and your bank account almost doesn’t deflate since you already have a source of income­—provided your employer does not find out.

Knowing how to search for a job without your employer finding out requires a great deal of planning and discreetness as shoddiness in such a search may put you in difficult conversations and even attract severe consequences which can see you kicked off important projects or fired before the time you intend to resign.

Here are five hints to guide you in your job search without your employer finding out:

1. Do not for any reason hint about it on social media
Social media is gradually breaking down the boundaries between your work and personal life since you will most likely have as friend or followers, co-workers and bosses who see everything you write or upload.

If you want to search for a job without your employer finding out, do not complain/whine about the job. Do not even give the faintest hint about it in any of your status updates or tweets.

2. Avoid using your company’s computer to conduct your search
Try not to use your company’s tools to conduct your search, you may never know who is snooping. A co-worker may stumble upon your browsing history and discover you just applied for a job or your boss may see your freshly printed resume and put you in the witness box.

Best advice: If you want to search for jobs without your employer finding out, don’t do it at your workplace.

3. If it’s possible, do not schedule interview for midday
Searching for a job while employed may not offer you the flexibility of time but if you have the opportunity to influence your interview schedule, schedule for very early in the morning or late in the day. Your boss is less likely to notice you are missing at those times.

4. Be careful how you dress
Suddenly showing up in suits, impeccably dressed for the first time in several months is a deadly giveaway that you are scheduled for an interview. If you are searching for a job while employed and you have the leeway to plan ahead, it is best to start wearing that nice suit more frequently so that everyone can adjust to seeing you in it.

In summary, being able to craft a very good plan and being very tactical at its execution will help you conduct a successful job search without your employer detecting.

Do you think a friend will benefit from this? Feel free to share this article with them.

Poor you. Every workplace has a way of tracking internet sites visited and call logs if they want to.

I don't concur with point 2.

Unless you do not lock your PC when not in use or it is not a laptop (i.e. it is a desktop that remains at the office) or you do not browse in 'privacy', I see no reason why an employee should have access (even by peeping) to your PC.

Moreover, you can have folders where you keep such stuffs that are 'confidential' to you or delete the browsing history and cache if you do not want the address to pop out when sharing stuff with your colleague(s).

Guy relax! Once the system is networked you can't hide anything. I can view your desktop, retrieve informations and paste same on your laptop or desktop.

That a system is networked DOES NOT mean you have access to everything an individual does. It's when you grant access or your PC gets hacked that this happens.

Even remote desktop access still requires permission unless it happens to be the unauthorized method that wants to be taken.

In a company where you are an employee you have some right to some contents which they allow you to use. Your browsing can also be restricted only to the company's needed sites. Some will restrict access to yahoo and facebook and others while they will allow access to google alone.
