Some people believe that luck is a myth, and that joy and misery are completely within our control. At the opposite end of the spectrum, there are many who believe our lives are governed by the lucky or unlucky circumstances that befall us and our tendency to arrive at exactly the right (or wrong) place at exactly the right (or wrong) time.Here at MyPerfectResume, we’ve learned that the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Many miserable and happy employees have arrived in their current state through no action of their own. But many others are happy because they had the power to read the subtle signs hidden all around them and recognize when to plunge ahead and when to change course.Far too often, miserable jobs and failed careers are simply the result of mismatches between employer, employee, and position. And if employees can spot the signs of a mismatch before it’s too late, they can steer in another direction, keeping their lives on track toward “luck”, happiness, and success. Here are a few red flags to watch out for during your job search.
