Finding a New Job While You Still Have One

We all know there is a balancing act you must perform when searching for a new position while you have a full-time job.  In many cases, it does not reflect well if your boss finds out.  Although, I’ve always contended that there is nothing wrong with doing some “comparison shopping.”  Just like when thinking about buying a new house or car, you first compare what’s out there with what you’ve got.  Perhaps you should be happy with the status quo because it really is better than alternatives available to you.  But how would you know if you didn’t do the research?

The problem is that although the research might be just a cursory look, management may not see it that way.  Best not to “advertise” your efforts.  My latest article for job-hunt deals with the tenuous balance of being “available to talk” and keeping your research “off the radar.”

As always, feel free to add your comments or experiences within this article’s Comments section.

  1. You should always find another job before leaving your current one. Comparison shopping can always be good too, you never know what else is out there.

  2. I recently got a new job and I got it while working fulltime and going to school part-time. It’s not easy doing this however I am now in the career I want to be in.
