On a scale of 1-5, how upset do you have to be to apply for another job in the parking lot of your current place of employment?

Me personally. 1. I do phone interviews in the parking lot. I don’t completely dislike my current job but I am curious if there is something better out there for me.

PREACH! Lol

1! The parking lot is probably better than at your current desk. Nothing wrong with exploring options even when you aren’t upset.

Well you don't want someone scheduling a meeting over your interview 🙃

Considering most people apply at their desks, I actually think the parking lot is pretty respectable 🤷🏻‍♀️

My coworker had an interview in the cubicle next to me. I did interviews in my parking lot (reception was better). I think it’s fine.

Nothing wrong with that. I work from home and I’m using my “career advancement” tools at work to find my next job. I would love to stay but company culture has shifted and positions in the virtual space to move up have been taken away. The attitude is butts in chairs in cubicles. I left that life long ago with no plans to return.

I say use all tools available to get where you need to go.

At my job people are not even quiet about it. They will tell you. I need to dip out for a few I have a video or phone interview.

I and many people I know have done phone/video interviews in the office

Many phone interviews outside on the sidewalk, in my car at the parking lot, or at a nearby park bench. This was when I was at two sinking startups and was desperate to find something else.

0. I’ve done it!

0.

I applied for my current position while in a review at my last position. They had me twisted.

Once you reach the point of INTERVIEWING, then I think there is no going back. Haha

Have a big interview tomorrow. The question I dread the most is about why you’re looking for a new job. The honest answer is that there isn’t enough work to go around at my agency and I want to get ahead of the inevitable layoffs. What’s the best way to tell them this? Do I just make something else up entirely?

So I don’t know why he’s so mad about it and how to explain for him that I can handle it myself.

“Can we make the drizzle a little more luscious?”

My issue is less with the fact that the word “luscious” is pretty binary. The drizzle is either luscious or it isn’t. My issue is the “a little more” part. So, it’s luscious right now. We want it MORE luscious—but definitely not a lot more, just a little. Otherwise it would be TOO luscious. Can’t have that.
