SAN ANTONIO - There are many people looking for jobs and if they do have a job they may be looking for another. Etiquette expert Diane Gottsman joined us today to share with us the do’s and don’t of job-searching while on the job. Click here to watch...
First, remember that you are on the job still and that using work time for personal matters is theft. You are stealing company time by looking for that other job, so search during a break time like lunch. While searching use your phone or personal computer, so not to be using current company equipment. You may do quick checks on your phone or personal computer for responses, but that means just a peak, not taking time then to respond.
Also, be careful about who you put down as a reference. If you write down someone who works with you and the new job calls, then accidently talks to your boss, your secret’s out. Just be careful about what you say and who you tell.
