Hunting for another job on the QTAbridged: KansasCity.com

KANSAS CITY, MO -- John's looking for a job in secret because he's still employed (which most people agree is the best time to find a job). John's current boss goes to an online job board to search for potential job candidates and accidentally finds John's resume posted on the job-hunting site. Uh-oh.

This is job-hunting reality. Some surveys say that up to two-thirds of workers are at least passively looking for different jobs. And it's not uncommon for employers to find out employees are searching, leading to all kinds of loyalty vs. betrayal issues.

Several online job boards are addressing the issue with a confidentiality feature to protect job hunters identities. This option lets workers post their biographic information - basically, the stuff they'd put on a resume - without revealing their names or their current employers. Recruiters can contact promising candidates through the Web site, but they'll only learn the identification details attached to a bio if the candidate chooses to respond.
