How to Look for a Job While Employed

Most career experts would tell you it is best to start looking for a job while you are employed. They would also say to do it carefully because it can get very uncomfortable if your employer were to find out. At the executive level, change is common place so you should always be networking and staying relevant, but getting the word out that you are looking without your employer or colleagues finding out can be difficult since they are certainly part of your network.

To help you get around this challenge, tune in to this conversation between ExecuNet executive career strategist Saundra Botts and Tony Vlahos, ExecuNet’s Head of Learning. Saundra is a member of ExecuNet’s Career Strategy group and works with senior executives every day helping them to identify their unique value and connect with their next great opportunity.
