Dear Experts, I'm in a job I'm really trying to leave and I know it is important I utilize everyone in my network. My question is how frank should I be with some of the people in my network who work in my field but with whom I don't work very closely. For example, there are people I have drinks with at conferences and maybe have as Facebook friends but I don't see or speak to them very often. How do I let them know how eager I am to move on without dogging out my current employer or looking like a complainer?
