Hiding your resume from your current employer is always a good idea.
Most career websites have this neat feature that lets you conceal your resume from the current employer or limit its visibility. They don’t need to know that you are job hunting.
…..Or that you are already working for them :).
Anyhow, here are a few bonus tips for running a stealth job search:
- Get more active on LinkedIn and connect with more people in your industry. This way you can ‘showcase’ yourself without putting your resume online.
- Avoid using the office computer and corporate email for sending out those job applications.
- Do go into any rants about your current job or lackluster job search on your personal social media. a) it’s unprofessional b) privacy is really non-existent these days, so the info can land in front of your boss in no time.
