Out of loyalty, should I tell my boss I’m interviewing?

Q:  Out of loyalty, should I tell my boss I’m interviewing?

A:  That’s a nice sentiment, but the answer is No.  Until you have a job offer you want to accept, your search should be confidential. Telling your boss that you are in a job search will cue him/her to start looking to replace you, perhaps even before you sew up your search, and may harm rather than help your relationship and your career.
