My cousin asked me a serious question the other day, and I told him I’d get back to him. He is currently working for a good company but it’s a non-profit and not making the money he should be…he’s college educated and currently in development.
He is applying to another position in town and he has come to a stalemate. He is listing his past employers and he puts his current position on the application. Now the application asks for his current organizations phone number and supervisor.
Well he doesn’t want to tell them the phone number because he doesn’t want his current employer to know he is job searching. So he decided to put the phone number on the App anyway, but he put a note next to it saying: “my career change is confidential to my current employer”
Does this seem odd to anyone? What should he put? What could he have done instead…
He hasn’t sent the app in yet. Any help would be appreciated.
