  • 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.

        Hey, my favorite t-shirt reads: Measure Twice, Cut Once, Pound to Fit. Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I'm good to go. The project...no so much.

        In my usual Hit-It-With-a-Hammer way I found there is a workaround.
        It all depends on how important that mask is to you.

        It isn't as elegant a solution as being able to add a font character...
