Make this work for you.
1. Once in a while, casually mention to your boss how tired you are of recruiters emailing/calling/texting you all the time.
2. Tell a coworker your going to be a little late coming back from lunch with your buddy from $Your_biggest_competitor.
3. Tell your boss you have an "appointment" tomorrow, and you need to take an hour off. Show up the next day wearing your best suit and tie.
