I'd love to exploit this opportunity to make connections and let people know that I'm looking to make a move. I accidentally informed one of my vendors, so it's already "out there", but I feel weird about telling anyone else. I think it looks like I'm being an opportunist. This is complicated by the fact that my employer is making some changes to alleviate the reason I want to leave.
I wasn't really *wanting* to leave, but my boss was making Anna Wintour look positively sane. So, now that I don't report to her any longer I'm not running out the door, but I know that things aren't right and there aren't any real long terms signs that things will be. I still need to make a move, but I'll at least have a steady income while I look.
Is there a good way to take advantage without looking sleazy?
