A real concern people express to us is that they feel like they are sneaking around on their employer by looking for a new role. Being 'deceptive' makes most people uncomfortable. As much as you might not like your current role, you might not like the idea of sneaking around either. The thing is, most recruiters, us included, understand that you have to be discreet — we wouldn't be in business very long if we couldn't. The thing is, even if someone were to discover that you were looking around, if your job is that unfulfilling are you really worried about the slim chance of being discovered? Of course there are some basic principles to follow. Sitting on StartMonday.ie
on your office desktop might raise some red flags. But even sites like LinkedIn have privacy settings so you can go undetected. Most people have a smartphone these days so there is little need to cause too much alarm. Besides, we can't think of anyone who has actually been fired for looking around for a new job. If detected, you are more likely to open the conversation for some improvements.
