Most IT recruiters have had the awkward experience of speaking to an IT consultant about IT jobs—while they’re at their current job. Even in fields like information technology, where IT Professionals should definitely know better, IT consultants still search for a job while at work. What’s so risky about this?
Searching for a job at work is a terrible idea for a few reasons. Technical recruiters would be quick to point out that using your work computer for anything but work is already a bad start. IT managers are absolutely allowed to check what you’re doing with work property, so they could easily find your job search materials and emails. Besides exposing yourself to an untimely discovery of your job search, you’re also risking lower productivity in your job. If you’re giving your work any less than 100%, you may be hurting your reputation. Looking for a new job is fine, but make sure to do it outside of the office—it’s the safest way to do it.
