  • 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.

        I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

        Well, for one thing, logo design is a terrible entry point for a new designer trying to find clients and establish themselves. There are excellent designers with years of experience who avoid logo design...

        I do not have a degree in Graphic Design. My goal is to work freelance.
        This is what I am scared of since the country I live in does not respect design that much. You can rarely make a living out...

        I don't think I understand your question, and maybe you misunderstood my rant. I wasn't necessarily critiquing your logo collection, just voicing my opinion on logo collections as a whole.
