5 Ways to Vet Your Next Employer

5 Ways to Vet Your Next Employer

Time to do some detective work

Get employer “references”


As you inch closer to that offer letter, you’ll likely be asked to submit a few references – people who can vouch for your character, your professionalism, and your integrity. Why not ask the same of your employer?

Try and speak to a few of the people who work there – particularly the ones who will be your peers – to help you get a taste for what the work environment is like.

Ask them what they like about the job, what they don’t like, how long they’ve been working there and what they feel the potential for growth is. If you can, find out what the turnover is like.

Of course, they may not be completely honest with you. And even if they are, some people are just negative Nancies – so you don’t want to take everything they say to heart. But talking to a few people can give you a better idea of what you’re signing up for.
