5 Tips for searching for a job while still employed SEATTLE, WA -- 1) Keep It Quiet. In the majority of cases, you don't want your current employer to know that you're looking for a new job. One way to ensure that your search remains a secret is to share it with as few people as possible. Only share your plans with people that you trust completely.

2) Don't Let Your Work Suffer. It's easy to get so focused on your exciting job search that you start to let your work slip in your current position. Don't fall into this trap. Keep working as hard as you can to earn the glowing reference you'll need when you search for your next position. 3) Ask for Confidentiality. Don't list your current employer or co-workers as references if they don't know you're searching. And as you interview with new companies, be up-front with your desires to keep your search confidential.

4) Don't Change Your Habits. Don't show up to your casual office wearing a suit and tie. Play it safe by keeping an interview outfit in your car and making it a point to keep your behavior fairly consistent. 5) Search on Your Own Time. Be honest about your situation and see if interviewers will work with your schedule. Don't search for jobs on your work computer or use your company phone or email to communicate with potential employers.
