Discussion: November 17, 2009 Ask The Headhunter Newsletter
In today’s Q&A a reader says he goofed when he didn’t check out his new employer carefully enough.
After I accepted a position with a local company it became evident that the way the leadership of the company was managing internal operations was going to sink it. Three months later, I left after the operations exec left. Shortly thereafter the company was on life support. How could I have done a better job investigating this company before taking the job?
