SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Consider posting on highly regarded industry forums and news groups to showcase your skills and knowledge. You also may want to look into writing articles for industry publications. Be active in online forums and news groups to raise your profile. By raising your online career profile, it’s almost sure that you’ll be approached by many employers.
Never forget to use privacy settings on job boards. This prevents your present employer from finding your resume online. Job sites allow employed job seekers to use a confidentiality feature to protect their identities among top employers searching for new job seekers. When applying for a job, be very clear about the need for discretion. Always schedule your interviews after-hours. Let the company you are interviewing with know that you have respect for your current boss by showing respect during your work hours.

Avoid using phones or emails at your job when you are looking for new employment. Always use your private phone number and email address. It should also be obvious that you never want to look for a job while you’re on your boss’s time. Remember, he is paying you to work for him. Working during your work hours will help you to keep a good reference when you need it.
