- 5 Signs the Job Will SuckHindsight is 20/20, but might there have been clues during the interview that this job was going to suck? Improve your vision by keeping an eye out for these red flags.By Beth Braccio Hering, Special to CareerBuilder
- 4. Your position doesn't have a title (or a start date or a job description)
While you might be anxious simply to land a job, not getting a clear outline of your duties from the get-go can lead to stress later on. Marilyn Santiesteban, a director of career services fromWaltham, Mass., warns of possible trouble if "during the hiring process each interviewer has a different idea of the scope and responsibilities of the position."
Guinn adds that you might be playing Russian roulette with your career if the interviewer can't provide basics such as whom you'll be reporting to. "The phrase 'That's still under review' actually means, 'We can't decide who to stick you with, but we'll figure it out by the time you come aboard.'"
While you might not be able to put a finger on what somebody did or said (or didn't say) that makes you uneasy, the bottom line is to trust yourself. "Most people have pretty good radar," Santiesteban says. "If it feels wrong, it probably is."
