I am frequently asked how to create a LinkedIn Profile if you don’t want your boss to know you are looking for another job.
It’s a common problem people face… how to look for a job when you are busy with a full-time day job.
One aspect of the problem is time: by the time you get home from work you are exhausted. Or, you can’t do much (email/phone) during business hours.
Another aspect of the problem, as mentioned above, is not letting your boss know, which might result in getting canned.
Tim Tyrell-Smith wrote a great article for US News titled Looking for a Job When You’re Already Employed. His tips include:
- Prepare your marketing materials (including your resume) early,
- Establish target companies
- hire a career coach
- be easy to find on LinkedIn,
and 5 others. Check out his entire post here.
