5 Questions to Ask Before Accepting A Job
Stashed in: Jobs
Best question: WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS OF ME AS AN EMPLOYEE?
This sounds so basic! What happens often is that an employer will expect much more than you can give. You have made it through the process and they want you. Great. Do you want them? So- you CAN do the job. So what?! Do you have the time to do what is expected of you on a day- to- day basis. If the manager wants you to work until the job is done and you have a family that needs to be fed at 6 PM, is this going to work? No!
I think this question is a great one also: WHY ME?
Seriously. There is a reason they want to hire you. If you are going to succeed at this company, you need to know what you need to bring to the table. If you are a social media expert, be prepared to really help the company in that area.
You're right. It's such an important question to go into a job with a common understanding.
