Job seekers advised on selecting the perfect employer
Job seekers worried about not getting along with their employer when they start a new job may find information from one newspaper helpful.

The Washington Post has published advice from a career counsellor on ways to determine whether a potential employer is right or not.

It is important to listen to instincts and get a good feeling from a job interview. Also, look for non-verbal signs from an employer such as eye contact and how attentive they are.

Finding out about the employee who previously held the position is also useful.

"If the company is replacing someone who had ten years of experience with someone fresh out of school, that's a sign the business is in trouble," career counsellor Robin Ryan told the Washington Post.

The newspaper also suggests asking the employer questions about themselves, such as how they got their job and what training they have had.

"Your first boss, if they are a good mentor, is worth the biggest salary in the world," Ms Ryan added.

According to Experteer's recruitment website, there was an eight per cent outflow of managers from the UK last year.
