Look for a job when you have one
Editor's note: This is a transcript of the audio file.
If you're in a relationship, your significant other wouldn't be happy with you playing the field. Similarly, your employer won't be happy to find you job searching. In both cases, you could get dumped. I'm Lucas Wysocki with your Bankrate.com Personal Finance Minute.
Discretion is key when you're on a job hunt while employed. If your employer finds out, you could be let go earlier than planned or burn bridges when you should be building good references. Make sure not to change your behavior at your current job when you're on the hunt. Wearing your interview clothes into the office when it's usually casual wear is a dead giveaway. Also, slacking off because you've got one foot out of the door won't help your cause.
Posting your resume online can clue your employer in as well since your company might see the posting. Worse yet would be applying to a blind ad … only to find out you've submitted your resume to your current employer. Most importantly, don't use company assets like e-mail and web access to search for your new job.
