Post a Resume without the Knowledge of Your Boss

By: Scot Vaver

Many companies monitor employee Internet use and track of their sites visited daily. In addition, the current crisis within the job market has made manager more conscious of their employee’s activities. Spending time on activities outside of those related to your job could put your position in jeopardy.

Create a different email account

After you post a resume make sure that e-mail communication is not done through you work e-mail. You should have new job opportunities delivered to this alternate e-mail address because if e-mail monitoring is performed, you will likely place your current position in jeopardy.

Upload your resume at correct places

This is critical because your employer may have accounts with numerous job sites. You will likely post a resume to a site your employer already has access to, but you can take steps to protect you identity. Most sites allow you to activate or deactivate resumes. Sites like Jobcomb allow you to activate and deactivate your resume. Remember though, if you deactivate your resume, no employer can see your resume. However, Jobcomb also allows you to have categories such as name and phone number anonymous and you grant permission to employers to see this information only after they have contacted you. In this instance, you would elect to have them contact you through e-mail first. This is very similar to those employers that post jobs as “company confidential”.

Office equipments can be dangerous

Do not use the company’s phone or other means of communication to talk with prospective employers. To maintain a level of privacy, you should use your personal phone or e-mail. Keep your information saved on home computer and if you need things such as a resume or cover letter away from home, have a storage device such as a flash stick. This is to protect your information because anyone can login to your account and access your information if they obtain your password.

Be discrete

Never tell it to your colleagues when you post a resume because they could discuss with other colleagues and the information could come back to the manager. If you are looking for assistance and guidance it would be wise to do so from family or friends not employed by your place of work.

Following these tips does not ensure safety, but they are the steps necessary to put in place the proper precautions when you post a resume and conduct a job search. By following these steps, you, at the very least, minimize the potential for harm at your current employer when conducting a job search.
