NO SUCH THING AS A "STEALTHY" SEARCH
I got a call from a client once who was upset.
"That guy who is interested in me is calling all my co-workers! Why can't he just call the references on my résumé?!"
Every manager operates differently. Some call the names on your résumé. Others will NEVER call the names on your résumé (because, they figure, those folks are naturally going to say good things about you). And still others will call your competition, your co-workers--- anyone they damned well please.
I even knew one manager who always tried to talk with floor crew to see how they were treated by anchor candidates.
Once you make the leap to look for a better gig, the genie is out of the bottle. Be prepared for the possibility that EVERYONE will know you're looking for a new job.
That said, if you want us to attempt a stealthy search, we can make your web page "private" and only open to those who have a password.
