Passive Job Search Tips

Do you love your job? Don’t want to even think about looking for a new position? Even if you’re lucky enough to have a job you wouldn’t ever consider quitting, you should be prepared to move on.

Companies change over time, there may be new management, your job may not be as much fun as it used to be or or your personal circumstances could change and you may need to seek employment on short notice.

That’s why it’s important to always be prepared to job hunt, even if you don’t have to today.  It’s much easier to have everything you need ready to job search, to check out what jobs are available in your career field, and to know what those jobs are paying than it is to have to scramble to start a job search from scratch.

Spending time upfront getting job search ready will save time in the future if you need to find employment on short notice. Here’s how to use passive job searching to your advantage.


A passive job search occurs when someone who is currently employed is open to hearing about new career opportunities, but does not actively seek out and apply to specific positions. That’s a good model to follow because you will be prepared to job hunt at any given moment. If circumstances are such that it’s time to job search, it’s quick and easy to turn a passive job search into an active job search and you’ll be good to go.

Passive job seekers who invest a little time in staying job search ready will save a lot of time (and stress) getting up to speed when they need to job search. Here are my top 10 tips for passive job seekers.
