i was just wondering like if your job hunting while currently employed what kind of problems might your face? like i know people who leave from one job to another (as in they are not fired or they get an offer they cant refuse ect...)
and i was wondering they probally were looking at other companies and offers would they catch any flak at their current company , or what kind of flak could one catch? thanks

This probably varies from culture to culture, so we'll assume you're talking about in the US absent any other information.

It's not uncommon for companies to fire employees who are looking. Likewise they are unlikely to invest in you (e.g. sending you to conferences, training).

Personally, I think this is a poor strategy. With a a few select exceptions, I think companies should have an environment in which employees can talk about this. I tell everyone I hire that they will never be penalized for telling me they want to find a new job, because it makes my job easier when I have additional information.

"It's not uncommon for companies to fire employees who are looking. Likewise they are unlikely to invest in you (e.g. sending you to conferences, training)."
i think you meant common instead of uncommon right?

well from the minor networking i hear its common to hear of someone working for 6-8 companies in less than 10 years going up in most of their changes. i doubt they get fired or each company disolves and they have to look, so how exactly do they do it. like do people just keep their eyes open, or do they secretly look.

and yes im talking about the USA. I was just wondering how far people go to conceal their search or if there is a need to conceal it in the USA (im young and i feel bad, nervous rejecting extern and intern offers) i was just wondering how people do things in the real world when they arnt scheduled to "leave" in a period of 3month to a year, and still want to improve their roles without waiting for a company to take it upon themselve to do that for their employee?

No, he meant it. It is very common, but stupid, for companies to fire employees that they know are actively seeking a new job.
