HBCU Careers Magazine

In the past I’ve taken jobs for the money or other conveniences. At first you tolerate the things that annoy you or that you don’t approve of, but over time these things wear you down, especially if they go against your core values. I can still see a colleague being dressed down in front of the team, that was all I needed to know about that organization. Remember that this is where you’ll be spending at least eight hours a day for the foreseeable future! Make sure that you bring these subjects up during the interview process; this is your chance to speak with actual employees (besides recruiters) and find out what they really think. Ask them what they love about the company and what they don’t. You’d be surprised how candid people can be once they open up to you! Finding the right job is obviously important, but don’t neglect the details when it comes to your job hunt. Remember that this is your chance to really figure out what a company has to offer. Use resources like LinkedIn and Glassdoor to see what people are saying; read the good and bad reviews. One of the most important questions you can ask yourself during this process; can I see myself working here? Can I see myself reflected in the people who work here? Hopefully the answer will be yes.
