I'm quoted in the Career Advice section of the December 2012 / January 2013 issue of Working Mother magazine with some tips on how to find a new job while you're still employed. The overall theme is to keep it quiet until you're actually ready to give your notice - and specific tips include making sure you don't set off any flags by suddenly coming to your consistently casual workplace in a power suit, minimizing the amount of time you're mysteriously out of the office, being careful to avoid telling your coworkers about your plans to leave, and holding back on broadcasting job search updates on social media.
There's a really great article from The Atlantic that's floating around on LinkedIn - it talks about some of the ways companies are becoming more flexible and offering workers new ways of supporting the business's needs while maintaining their own lives and schedules. Although this article was written in response to Anne-Marie Slaughter's much-publicized article "Why Women Still Can't Have It All," these are topics that I've seen coming up a lot recently - from both men and women. What do you think? Is flexibility important to you? Have you ever seen a company offering employees more flexibility and then seen it backfire?
