That’s my fear too. I don’t have an answer, except, if your current employer brings it up, just be honest and hope you get the other job.

If the potential new employer knows you are currently working somewhere else then they should show discretion and not tell anyone else you applied. Other then the employer the nrws shouldn’t get out unless you inadvertently let it slip to someone who tells your current employer. Its probably more paranoia then anything else which is understandable. There is always a risk of word getting back to your current employer that you are interviewing elsewhere. But its your right to look around if you choose. Just be discreet and I hope everything works out.

That has happened at my office. To me it is the employee right to search if you are unhappy. It is scary but sometimes the boss talks to the employee and offers a raise to keep them. At least thats what happened to the front desk person at my job.

Personally, I have asked for discretion to the interviewing DDS/OM. It has never been a problem

I agree with Cynthia. I too have been in this situation and the Dr I interviewed with was very understanding about anonymity. However, if your current employer does find out, honesty is always best.

I would explain to the office that you are interviewing at about your delicate situation. If they still tell your boss after that then you probably wouldn’t want to work for them anyway.

In order to avoid my current employer finding I don’t include the office name or town of my practice in my resume. It seems to have worked and if a job is offered I will give them full disclosure of my current work.
