I did the first time I tried and bombed out on everything. Made it more stressful as I felt more pressure of expectation. Took a real ego hit, as I then had to tell everyone I failed. Next time I didn’t tell anyone until I got offers, felt much more relaxed about it and found the process easier.

Typically only super close family (ex. significant other) or anybody who may aid in you landing the role. If you’re not adding any value to my interview process, then you’ll only find out after I get the role

Sometimes. Other times don’t want to jinx it.

LOL no! Why would I bore anyone with details of my interviewing?

I had been hiding it from my sister and it came out over thanksgiving and now I have to cut her out for my mental health Everyone else in my life that’s close enough, I do tell. Case by case basis

I told so many people that my director and SMs knew I was quitting soon.

At this point in my life, my train wreck of a family doesn’t need to know a darn thing. Apologies for the unnecessarily heavy reply!

Let it out man. Let it out

I tell everyone, didn't really think it's an issue! A good role can take time to find, or sometimes a role just comes along and takes no time at all

Neigh Nopety nope

Yeah! Once I have an offer letter in my hand with a substantial pay increase. 😛

I always tell my dad because he worked in executive search for a while so he’s been able to offer a lot of good advice. Otherwise I would probably not say anything until I had an offer in hand
