Salutations Careers Friends:
Thanks to all who responded to an earlier message. For a book
about job finding on the Internet (HOOK UP, GET HIRED, to be
published by Wiley, Spring '95) I am collecting case histories of

to solve the problem of how to keep your boss from knowing you're
looking for another job. And preventing information that might
put you in harm's way.
