AVOID THESE JOB OPPORTUNNITIES — IT CAN KILL
No amount of pay is worth your sanity
A few months ago, a job opportunity was posted on one of my boss’s WhatsApp groups, for the position of content writer. I had no job at that time and was looking for something to keep myself busy while adding to my portfolio as well.
I applied immediately and low and behold, I was granted an interview and finally got the job.
Just a few minutes before I started the job, I decided to get more information about the job and its expectations. Then, I was told that I had to deliver five (5) fresh articles daily for six days a week and 1 day off, which is on sundays.
At first, It looked challenging but determination they say can make even the highest of mountains easy. So, I decided to take the bull by the horn. However, It was also the very first time I was having an interview, and was never asked about my salary expectations.
So, at this point, I had to ask the interviewer what the salary budget for the job was and to my utmost surprise, He said $100. At first, I thought it was a mistake, I thought my ears were deceiving me, so I asked again and the price was repeated clearly to be $100.
I paused to comprehend the whole scenario, comparing the price to the workload, the time consumption, the stress it would take, and lots of other things and then it dawned on me that it was a death trap so, I came to the conclusion to let the job go.
I appreciated the interviewer for the opportunity and politely told him that the price does not resonate with my expertise and so, I had to reject the offer. He didn’t stress the topic further because according to him, he knew the price was low but that was all they had budgeted for the role so, he bid me farewell and wished me luck. I thanked him and that was the end of the interview.
Now hear this. I know you have been searching for a job for a long time all to no avail. I also know that you have some expenses to clear and you are looking for a job just to make sure you meet your needs. But I have just a few pieces of advice for you and they are thus:
Know your worth. I repeat, know your worth. So long as you know the value that you offer, and you are good at what you do, do not let the fear of missing out on an opportunity let you lower your standard beyond limit.
Manage your mental health. I don’t know if I’m the only one but your mental health is as important as you. If you have stable mental health, you would be more productive however, getting a job that does not allow you the flexibility to socialize, or even have time for yourself is a no for growth and productivity.
Lastly, ensure that the job you are being interviewed for has a positive working environment. You can observe this from the responses you receive from the interviewer. In most cases, you can even ask the interviewer what it looks like working with them. That is if they have a positive working environment and watch them give you a first-hand response to your question.
I believe with this, you will be able to get the best kind of job that resonates with your potential.
Have you ever had any such encounter? Don’t hesitate to share your opinion.
