Looking for a job is like dating with someone. If you’re not attentive, you could end up with a dud.
Just think, eight to nine hours a day of headlong misery could be yours if you choose poorly. But you have to be smarter than that.
When you interview, you’ll be on the lookout for red flags signals. You’ll scope out the office for prognostic signs of a toxic boss and burnt out employees, and you won’t end up in a job that sucks.
If an interviewer ever says something completely backward like “We’re looking for a ninja type rock star for a opportunity of a lifetime,” please, do yourself a favor, cut your losses and bail.
If employees look like from The Walking Dead, assuming cold, dead stares when the big, mean boss barges in the room, save yourself. Run as fast as possible while you can.
Just in case you job hunt with blinders on, or are beyond tone deaf when listening to your gut, check out the infographic below. It’s chock full of glaring red flags that, no, sir, you should not take that job.
