How to Get a Job While You Still Have One – 3 Strategies To Use Discreetly

So, you’re thinking about quitting your job. I get it – it’s hard to be passionate about your work when you spend most of your day feeling drained and uninspired. But before you make any rash decisions, there are a few things you should consider. Quitting your job without having another one lined up can be risky, especially in today’s economy. Here are a few tips on how to get a job while still keeping the one you have.

I get it – it’s hard to be passionate about your work when you spend most of your day feeling drained and uninspired. But before you make any rash decisions, there are a few things you should consider. Quitting your job without having another one lined up can be risky, especially in today’s economy. Here are a few tips on how to get a job while still keeping the one you have.

So, you’re unhappy with your current job and you’re ready to move on. But finding a new job can be a full-time job in itself, and you can’t exactly quit your old job before you have a new one lined up. So how can you find the time to job hunt while still holding down your current gig?

Here are a few tips:

1. Set aside some time each day to job hunt. Even if it’s just 30 minutes, this will help you make progress without feeling overwhelmed. Don’t let your boss catch you slacking off. If you’re spending too much time on your personal laptop during work hours, your boss is bound to notice. So try to do most of your job hunting during your lunch break or after work.

2. Save 1-3 Paid Time Off (PTO) or Vacation days to use for interviews. You never know how long an interview will last and it may impede on your work day significantly, so it is always best to be prepared with using your requested paid days off for interviews.

3. Keep your job search confidential and private. There’s no need to tell your manager(s), supervisor(s) co-workers that you’re looking for a new job. It could backfire quickly! Only notify your direct leader AFTER YOU HAVE SECURED A VIABLE OFFER THAT PAYS YOU MORE MONEY! Not only is it none of their business until the appropriate time. You must be strategic with how you maneuver this process. Unfortunately, you have some petty leaders (managers, supervisors or directors) who will terminate you just because they find out you are looking for other opportunities before you are ready to let the job go.

The job search process can be daunting, but it’s important to remember that you have options. While it may seem like your only choice is to quit your current job and start fresh, there are other ways to go about things. If you need additional help navigating the job search process or want someone to talk to who understands what you’re going through, connect with me here. I would be happy to offer my support and advice. Good luck in your job search!
