Do your due diligence

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources

Even if a recruiter courts you like a VIP, research your potential employer thoroughly before accepting a job offer:

1. Network inside the organization. Don’t rely on the hiring manager to hook you up with hand-picked employees. They’ll just tell you how great it is to work there. Instead, find your own contacts. Ask friends and acquaintances to connect you with employees at the firm. Or simply hang around the lobby or parking lot after meeting with your hiring manager and strike up conversations with workers. Introduce yourself and say, “I’d love to know what it’s like working here and if I should take this job.”

2.Watch people leave. Ask the hiring manager when the workday typically ends. Then station yourself near the exits at the appropriate time and observe folks heading home. Eavesdrop if possible. Do they talk enthusiastically about their work? Or do they grumble or look exhausted?
