The average person changes jobs ten to fifteen times in his or her career, which means it's pretty inevitable that a person will be job searching while still employed. It makes sense to do so, as hiring managers are more likely to hire someone who is currently employed. Many employers agree, having a job makes you that much more attractive to a potential employer.
Moreover, when you have a job and are not in a desperate need of a paycheck, you won’t be as tempted to take the first job that comes your way, which may not always be a good fit. So, if you decide to look for a job while you’re employed, here are a few dos and don’ts for your job search:
Finally, working with a staffing agency can help make job searching while you have a job go as smoothly as possible. Your recruiter will respect your need to keep your job search a secret by scheduling appropriate interview times, not calling you during work hours, and facilitating the application and offer/acceptance processes.
Keeping your job search under wraps is key when job searching while you still have a job. Making wise decisions and taking care not to unveil your job search plans will help you avoid the unpleasant situation of getting let go before you’ve found your next job.
