3 Ways to Avoid a Bad Job
Are you currently stuck in a bad job? Almost everybody has been in that situation at one point or another. A boss that micromanages. Coworkers who gossip. Unrealistic expectations. Or just overwhelming work. Nobody wants to end up in a job they hate on a daily basis, but what can you do to avoid joining a company for an awful experience?
At Accurate Personnel, our team of career experts has seen just about every workplace situation you can imagine and we are here to provide you with advice to help you avoid workplace nightmares.
Here 3 things you can do during your next job search to avoid bad jobs:
Look at the reviews
The first thing you should consider when looking for your next company is the public reviews. Google, Indeed, and Glassdoor provide an excellent snapshot of a company's culture from current and past employees. While no company is perfect, if the Indeed reviews page looks like a horror story you should proceed with caution.
Be on the lookout for red flags
As you progress through the application process, be on the lookout for red flags that are alerting you of potential problems. If you spot inconsistencies, shady job posts, or unprofessional responses, these are potential indicators that the company could be a headache waiting to happen.
Ask the right questions during the interview
You have advanced to the interview stage and you are ready to wow the hiring manager. While this may seem like a pressure filled event for you, it is also an opportunity to conduct your own final evaluation of the company. Come to the interview ready with questions. You know what you are looking for in your next job, so don’t settle. Set your expectations high and make sure that you like what you hear before accepting your offer.
