As you search for a job, it’s important to keep in mind that you aren’t just looking for a salary from a company. You have value as an employee, and you can contribute meaningfully to a company and its culture.
Know your own strengths and weaknesses, as well as what you hope to gain from the job, and keep those things in mind as you read job listings and research potential places to work. Also, be alert for these red flags. They don’t necessarily mean that you need to avoid a company, but they can provide you with a reason to look a little closer and see if the job really would be a good fit for you.
Because, you know, nobody wants to be miserable and scrambling for another position only a few months after taking one.
