Should I tell my employer I'm currently in school to complete my bachelors degree? With my current role at the company having a degree will not give me a raise or a promotion. It will also not open up new opportunities since it's a small software company and I'm already just 2 heads from the top of the pyramid -- only chance of a promotion is if my boss dies or quits.
I went back to school 2 years ago and I've not let anyone at the company find out. I'm just 1 year from having my degree at which point I plan to put myself back on the job market. For now my primary focus is to just maintain my current job until I finish my degree as my job security is very good here.
My concern is if my employer finds out I'm in school I fear they will suspect what my intentions are (to find a new job) with my new fancy piece of expensive paper; since it's obviously not to get a promotion.
At this point I really don't plan to tell anyone, but my concern is that someone finds out and then people start to question my loyalty because I've kept a rather large secret about my personal life. To that point, I've not lied to anyone about it as no one has asked me if I was in school. I just have not been forthcoming with the information.
