I have always been honest with my employers when I’ve started looking for another job. I find it’s the best way to not burn any bridges, and takes the guilty feeling out of the equation!
How honest have you been with a current employer about your new job search? Is honesty always the best policy?
Much as I hate the phrase- it depends. I would have no problem telling my current boss that I’m looking. The one before that? Not so much. I do say that in this age of social media, it may be difficult at best to keep it quiet if you’re seriously looking.
I am being made redundant, luckly I have other oppotunities arising so I am not worried about this. I have been honest and advised my manager of where there will be shortfalls and issues regarding workloads not being dealt with after I leave. I was just thanked and nothing has happened, I raised it within the correct process and still nothing has happened. I leave 2 weeks today and I am starting to think, why bother? I have started distancing myself from this but still a voice inside me tells me to keep trying even when everyone tells me not to. I will wait for 2 weeks and see if anything happens but I doubt it. Its hard to care when no one else does.
