Now and again, I think of an idea for a post.
Then I research it. And sometimes I find a much better post talking about exactly the thing I wanted to post on.
This is one of those times. I wish I had posted this. Since I didn’t, I’ll link to it. These are 6 excellent warning signs when you’re looking at job ads/applying for jobs. If you encounter any of the following, head for zee hills.
Beware of all scammers and shady operators. Follow these six steps and you should be ok.
Which of the tips have I seen most often as a warning sign for job searchers? Simple. This one:
They run the same job ad week after week. And the week after that. Did you ever notice that some big companies run the exact same ad (with slightly different wording) almost regularly? There may not even be a job opening, but the high rate of turnover at this jobs almost guarantees they’ll be needing someone soon. Keeping a constant supply of new hires in the pipeline secures their chances of having someone trained and ready to work these jobs at any given time – if only for a few months.
