Tips for keeping a job search as a secret?

I already have a job, but the position does not offer me benefits, and there is an extremely small chance of advancement. I could move laterally, but upward mobility is highly unlikely. I know the obvious things like not conducting the job search using the company computers, don't save the materials onto the computer at work, conduct phone calls discreetly or outside, don't give the contact info as your work email/number, try to take time off or be discreet if interviewing, etc. Any other hints?

If you use head hunters make sure they know who you are working for so they don't contact your employer.... Do not even put your current employer down on any apps or anything like that so nobody calls and lets the cat out of the bag.... Good luck on your search
