Searching for a Job while Keeping Your Search Confidential

Tips to job hunt confidentially:

  1. Check your visibility settings on job boards such as LinkedIn, where your coworkers may see your connections and activities.

  2. Inform your recruiters about the confidentiality of the job application and that the interviewer may not contact the company you're currently working for.

  3. Avoid job fairs and online job-hunting groups, which may be attended by former colleagues, hiring managers, or competitors.

  4. Schedule the interview during off hours to keep yourself from using your company's resources for the job application.
