  • Yes, I have in the past and it paid off!
    I love my job now and if you are unhappy with your current job and seriously wanting to quit, go look elsewhere. It may be work out for you.

  • Other than taking off a couple of hours for an interview, I do not understand why you would need to. I do career and job search coaching; feel free to contact me if you have any questions

  • Most of the classified ads in my town specify to apply for positions in person.

  • no. you can do look online and read the paper and send out resumes without taking a day off from work. If you had to at least just take half a day off unless money isn't an issue

  • Only if you have vacation time coming to you, but I wouldn't try taking a sick day to do it. You never know who will see you and let your current or potential employer know what you are up to.

  • I would do a job search online looking at the major websites and also the local newspaper. You can put out a resume and then when they want to see you take 2 hours off instead of the whole day because you may have many interviews and wouldn't want to spend all your paid leave looking for a job.
