- Companies do searches and reviews regarding employees all the time before hiring them. I know the job market is still shaky because of the economy but be cautious before taking any job. Conduct your own research on the company or organization prior to taking any position, especially those of which that have high turnover. I should have done that, but unfortunately did not. It will save you a lot of headaches. If I had known that I would have gone through all this before getting that job, trust me I would have never taken it no matter how much it paid. I wish I could rewind time.
