How to Spot Red Flags When You're Applying for Jobs

When you're looking for a new job, it's easy to feel as desperate as a hopeful contestant on The Price is Right. All you want is to get picked so that you have a chance to win the big bucks.


(And by big bucks, we mean make a livable income so that you can survive in this economy, amiright?)


But just cause you're a wee bit desperate doesn't mean you shouldn't have standards. Don't let your greed for gameshow money requirement to pay rent cloud your judgment.

Watch out for these red flags when you're applying for jobs:

  1. "Fast-paced environment" could translate to, "you will work late and will never see your family again."
  2. Vague job descriptions could mean you'll get asked to cover tasks that fall outside the job title. It could also mean that the company doesn't know exactly what it's looking for yet.
  3. On the other hand, an extremely detailed job description could indicate that the company is trying to fit multiple roles under one job title.
  4. Job descriptions that lack salary and benefits details indicate a lack of transparency.

A job description can definitely indicate some red flags with the company, but it's hard to tell from the listing alone. If you decide to apply for some jobs with less-than-reassuring job listings, make sure you do a vibe check during your interview.


Look for things like low retention/high employee turnover, bad talk about past employees, lack of transparency about the role, and lack of clarity about the next steps in the hiring process.


Good luck out there, job seekers! We wish Bob Barker (rip) could say "Come on down" and magically hand you your dream job, but since that can't happen, scroll down for Impact Job postings that pass the vibe test with us.
