Red flags that this job isn’t right for you

by on
in Quiet Power

When you are out of a job and an offer comes in, you tend to overlook some red flags about the offer.

Even in a time of near desperation slow down and honestly ask yourself some questions that will help minimize the possibility that you’ll be looking for a job again, in the near future:

Will this broaden my experience, expose me to new areas, teach me things I’ll need in the future?

Is the management philosophy in sync with my own?

Is it a stable management time?

Would I want to work here for the rest of my life – or even five years?

What happened to my predecessor?

Is it a significant promotion?

Is the compensation satisfactory?  Will it be in two years?

Can I contribute substantially to the company in this position?

Is there realistic opportunity for advancement?

Is the job interesting and challenging?

Is the work in a geographically desirable area including community, cultural and religious organizations?

Is the industry expanding or retrenching?

Is the company growing as fast, faster or slower then competitors?

If you answer “no” to more than 5 of these questions, better rethink your decision. It‘s better to turn this job down and be available when the right one comes along.
