Is it wise to always be on the lookout for new careers while employed? I would think so right? With that said, how does one interview with other firms while employed? Is it frowned upon? I have no idea. I assume you just use vacation days for interviews obviously I ask as I have no experience regarding the matter and I know I might be in that situation at some point in my career. This whole economy has me being very thankful I have a job but also wary it may not be there so I should at least try and stay prepared. I then extended that thought to why wait till laid off in a sense? Is it looked down upon to continually apply for other jobs while employed and see what happens? Don't get me wrong, I think my present job is great but ideally, I'd love to end up nearer to home in the long run Just some thoughts ive been pondering.
