I've been looking for a new job off-and-on for the past few weeks, but I'm still employed full-time. I'm wondering what I should do if I get an interview? Should I call in sick? Take a long lunch?
Why not schedule your interview when you aren't working? As mentioned before many HR people will probably work around your schedule ( they know you are currently employed, right?). Doesn't hurt to ask anyway, yeah?I was thinking of calling in sick on the day of my prospective interview. I don't think that would be too suspicious.
Yeah and if HR sucks, most likely it's a reflection of the company and overall the company will suck. They should be able to work around things and schedule an interview at a time a person isn't working.Most good HR people will be flexible with your schedule. They know good (and desirable) employees do not want to lie to their current employer.
