    Question How should I proceed?

    I work for a very large company that has many smaller companies under it's umbrella. I'm interested in submitting my resume to a few of these other companies for various positions they have to offer. At this point, the companies I am interested in don't correspond directly, but there's a good chance that they might contact my current job to ask question.

    In short, my question is should I tell my current employer of my intentions? I wouldn't want to jeopardize my current position if the other companies aren't interested, but I do want to look. Anyone been in this position before or have any thoughts on this?

    If you think they will increase your salary, do it. If you think they will fire you, don't.

    Apply and if they call your current employer, tell your manager that you are not thinking about quiting your current job, but merely about getting a second one . Just kidding, I think you should be honest all the way, but your walking on slippery ground...
