What you don’t sometimes find in job offers?
It happens that the job offer does not contain information about which company is recruiting (as in the case of the advertisement we are discussing). In this situation, a series of questions will appear on your side:
- what does the company do?
- in what industry does it operate?
- who are its creators?
- what is the employee turnover level in this company?
- and: why is recruitment partially secret?
There may be times when the “Terms of Reference” section is omitted or is poorly developed. This generates – beyond the basic: what will my responsibilities be? – the following questions:
- is the scope of duties permanent or is it subject to modifications?
- Will I report the progress of the tasks performed and to whom?
- to what extent am I responsible for the implementation of projects?
- am I free to organize my work, and if so – to what extent?
- does the nature of the work involve group or individual activities?
Finally, it’s time for the section of the job offer that will interest you most: salary. It is a good practice for companies to provide the salary in the range and information about the type of contract offered. If I am not given – we are sure that you will ask for it. In addition, it is worth knowing the following issues:
- what additional terms are attached to the contract? (is there an annex to it about non-competition or professional secrecy?)
- are the provisions on the benefits referred to in the announcement included in the contract?
