Whoops!

HR at my current job stumbled across my resume on one of the general boards I posted it on and called me out on it! I hadn't told anyone I was looking, so I was mortified when he said something to me. I knew them finding it was a possibility and it was a risk I was willing to take, but I was thrown off by suddenly having to justify myself like that and explain my reasons for keeping my eyes open to the job market. A part of me understands that he has to look out for the company and be informed about potential employee departures, but part of me feels its my business. Oh well. I just hope that any slight mistake isn't now construed as me "checking out". I still come to work every day, work 40-60 hours a week, do work at home....Its not that I'm necessarily unhappy here (mean receptionist aside), it's simply that I want to see my options. Bleah....it was one awkward conversation to say the least!

Oh dear, that does sound awkward.

Hopefully they understand...

They weren't too pleased....I got a bit of a company loyalty lecture, but I think it will (hopefully) blow over.....hopefully...
