The myth of a dream job

Many people think they've found their dream job, often based on nothing more than an ad. They may seek guidance on how to overcome not being hired or be excited that they've been hired.

But, jobs don't always look the same from the outside as from the inside. The dream job can quickly turn sour by a terrible boss, toxic culture, or pressing workload.

There’s No Such Thing as a “Dream Job”

When people buy into the myth of a dream job, it often sets them up for disappointment. Some job searchers may be so convinced that they've found the ultimate job that they fail to notice the danger signs. People may also stay in bad situations longer than they should because they find it difficult to reconcile their ideal job with walking away.

You can only know if it is a great job after you've been in it for a while. Until then, it's better to look for "interesting possibilities."
