EPISODE 235 There are rampant problems in any size organization. Learn how to be open to opportunities without threatening your current job situation and the science behind how to have better, more productive meetings.

 

QUESTION
“You’ve recommended that I should put my resume on numerous job boards. Is this safe to do while I’m currently employed? What happens if my company finds out or stumbles upon it and I get myself fired?” -Josef, Sweden

ANSWER
You need to change your thinking. You’re asking the wrong question. Think about it this way, you are always open to opportunities. It’s up to you, not your company to manager your career. Until you resign you’re not taking action, you’re just talking. Being found out is a much less problematic proposition when you think of it this way.

  • Don’t create your resume or print it on your work computer or leave it around the office.
  • Don’t print out job descriptions at work.
  • Don’t have conversations with recruiters during work time or at work.
  • Don’t ask for time off for doctor/dentist appointments or call in sick for job interviews.
