How to Hire and Fire Your Employer

A job is essentially a contract between an employee and an employer, in which the employee sells time in exchange for money and other benefits. During the course of a job interview, the interviewer tends to ask all or most of the questions. Do you know what you are looking for in a potential employer?

Life is too short to spend your time working for an employer that doesn’t match your values and fit your needs. What might happen if we start evaluating employers as thoroughly as a big purchase, such as a home or car?

Topics that will be covered:
