“You’re hired.” Two words we all love to hear. Whether it’s that first real job out of college, the one that follows months of unemployment, or the fresh start after years in the same position, landing a new gig is always exciting.
But what happens if the dream job turns out to be a total nightmare? Though it takes three to six months to acclimate to a new environment, recognizing that a job’s a real stinker can happen in less time than it takes Lindsay Lohan to say, “Not guilty.”
Job hunters are most often blamed for hiding imperfections. It’s no secret that companies do it, too, as perhaps you’ve already discovered. A misleading job description, the maniacal boss no one mentioned during your interviews, clicky co-workers – any one of those can quickly scrape the luster off a new job.
What’s the earliest you’ve ever left a job? Why did you leave? Did you leave it off your resume?
