Are you worried they'll see it and assume you're doing the analysis for yourself in order to find a new job? If so, I'd say you're overthinking it. After all, if you were doing it for yourself, making it public would be put you at a disadvantage since it would be giving other job seekers in your network access to the same data. It can be difficult to predict ...


Discuss it with your boss first so that he doesn't take it as a signal that you're planning on leaving. So, on your free time, you're looking at a bunch of job openings?
