Applying for a job at a direct competitor
Thought about applying for a job in the same industry closer to home. Bad move if you don't already have an "in"?
I suspect that someone there might tell someone at my current company that I applied there. Not sure it's worth that risk as the job is actually a step down (and likely less money) but I like the idea of a shorter commute.

I wouldn't worry about it, that's an extraordinary dick move.

Have your contract reviewed by your attorney before going to a direct competitor.

Get an offer and use it to leverage a pay raise at your current employer.

It can be a good thing, because you know how your competitor works. Which can also be a bad thing because corporate scumbags don't want to let you be able to say "They do it this way" because they are afraid. Still, it means you know the industry/type of work so that can be invaluable to a competitor.

If the company really is a direct competitor, you really are fucked because most employment contracts have non-compete clauses these days that means you must have a gap of at least 6 months between positions.
