In Topic: How do you start looking for a new job?

04 March 2015 - 11:44 AM

I've about maxed out my growth at my current place of employment and have started to look elsewhere.

I realized that I've never started looking while employed at a place where I would stay if I couldn't find anything better.

Is there a process? Do I let my current employer know I am looking at any point before I'd be submitting a resignation letter (is that still a thing)?

Not in this instance.

How do I handle interviews during the day with my current place and will prospective employers understand that I'm coming from work if I show up in slacks instead of a suit?

If your job is the kind where you are expected to interview in a suit., then you should make every effort to do so. I've stashed a suit at my gym and changed there. I've changed in parking lots, hotel restrooms, a hockey arena locker room etc. You should be able to find a way.


You might want to line up your references ahead of time. If your references seem open to some direction, you could let them know which of your skills/attributes you might like them to emphasize. 


You may want to talk to a couple of recruiters right at the start. If you haven't been looking lately, or ever, they can sometimes offer insight into the prevailing compensation options for your type of job, feedback on the formatting and content of your resume, possible interview questions etc.  The hiring company is their client, you are their product and if they think you're qualified, they want to present their product in the best possible light to their clients.

Besides looking like amateurs buying magic beans, they also did a disservice to the viewers who are interested in how successful investors make decisions.

It was interesting to note the divide between the techie and non-techie sharks on this one.

I still like all the sharks though and I just started reading Lori's book.

If you're having an issue with ice dams and need to hire someone to take care of it for you I would suggest you call as soon as possible. I was just talking to my neighbor who a roofing contractor and he's had to triple his crew just to handle all the emergency requests for clearing roofs of ice and snow. He's full out 7 days a week right now.

In Topic: Patriots being investigated after Colts game

Serious question. Did they say they didn't measure pats balls or they did but didn't record it?

They were trying to build a case against the Patriots for cheating. Being able to refer to actual records of the pregame PSI of the balls would just be silly.
