Stealthy Job Searching - Share Your Experiences
In a recent Accountemps survey, 73 percent of workers indicated they are likely to do their job searching for a new position while currently employed. That alone is not a surprise - most people feel they are more employable if they still have a job. The trick, however, is to conduct the search without putting your current position at risk. Accountemps has some tips on how to get that new job while you're still employed. What are your on-the-job interview experiences? Have you ever gotten caught sneaking out for a long lunch? Have you had to make excuses for wearing a suit to work in a casual environment? Has the boss ever intercepted a call from a headhunter?
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
