This is becoming such a hot topic as of late, but why? With The Great Resignation more interviews are being held, and with these interviews, job seekers do not want to be entering a work place/role which resembles the reason they resigned in the first place. So before we go down the red flag rabbit hole, let us first discuss The Great Resignation.
The Great Resignation:
In short, The Great Resignation is where employees have voluntarily resigned from their jobs due to not being satisfied with the working conditions; salary; company culture; industry; duties; management style and so on.
This ‘trend’ has blown a wave across the employment market causing significant economical impact, skill shortages and has even led to some employees feeling a sense of The Great Regret. However, regret aside, it is still necessary for individuals to find a new role, and to find one that does not mirror the reason why they left their old job in the first place. So let’s go….red flag time.
There are many different red flags to look out for and if we listed them all, it would be a book rather than a career based article. However, these four are the most common and ones which you can easily identify. However, do look out for other signs such as – the hiring manager is unable to provide clear or detailed answers about the role and its future direction; unable to tell you about your career path in the company; the hiring manager uses lots of buzz words but no real substance to describe the role; there are too many interviews and the whole process is drawn out; you do not find a connection with the hiring manager (that is important) and the company is seriously underpaying the position.
