    @Printdriver Nice find. So I just had to do some digging to keep in practice. The original design was done by an individual named John Le aka Dragonkhn. Apparently the Backtrack group did use it originally...

  • Applying on the Sly

    Hey everyone...

    Quick question for you on-the-move ppl..

    How do you go about applying for other jobs when you're currently employed..

    yaknow... submitting resumes with your current employer's name and number, etc.
    to potential employers without getting your ass fired when/if they call for references??
    I'm a bit perplexed. Any help, appreciated.

    On my resume I listed my current employer as Confidential, supplying no contact information. In fact, I don't recall ever listing any employers contact information on my resumes or applications unless specifically asked. No company should be calling around on you prior to your first interview or contact.

    I usually go for the default 'References available upon request.' Most of the time, you can tell a potential employer the situation and they will respect it.
