I know that is best to keep it a secret when you are having interviews for another job until your new job is officially confirmed from your new employer. But what if your new employer wants to get your current's manager advice as a recommendation, before he takes his final decision? Should I deny or accept?
The above scenario happened to a friend of mine but the new job was in the same company as the previous job. Could this happen when moving from one company to another, and then what should someone do? Tell my current manager that I am looking for a new job and let the two (old and potential new manager) discuss if I am suitable for the new job?
