Shahrzad, Your message is an important one. Understanding the fit from the jobseeker's perspective is every bit as important as the reverse. In this market, it can be tempting to just take the job...even when there are obvious red flags. Big mistake as one of my clients would tell you. A bitter experience...thanks for sharing your wisdom.

Hi Rita,

Many thanks for your valuable comments! You are absolutely right that evaluating fit is a two-way process and an important factor in deciding whether to accept a job offer. I hope conversations like this will empower job seekers to examine if a job is right for them and turn down ones that are clearly a poor match.

Your clients are fortunate to have you as a guide and partner on their career journey.
