When you show up for your job interview, your focus will no doubt be on presenting the very best version of yourself in order to convince them to hire you. But you should never forget that the interview is also your chance to test whether it’s a company you actually should want to work for. You’re interviewing them as much as they’re interviewing you.
The danger with changing jobs is always that you can end up in a toxic workplace and not see the signs until it’s too late and you’ve already started working there. Getting trapped in an environment like that can be hazardous to your health, your happiness, and your career prospects.
Resume.io has come up with some tips to help you avoid making this mistake by finding out the truth in your interview.
If you show up and the receptionist doesn’t know who you are or what you’re doing there, that’s an early red flag that there are issues with the organization there. Or it could be a lack of attention being made to your interview, something that will become even more apparent if the interviewer seems unprepared or lacks any real interest in you.
There are plenty of other red flags to watch out for, why not check out the guide and be prepared next time you go for an interview?
