When read work advice columns, you see a lot of people talk about finding their “dream job”. They want to know how to get hired at the dream job, or how to get over not being hired, or excited that they have been hired … and I’m often left thinking, “Hmmm, don’t be too sure.”
You just can’t tell from the outside whether something is a dream job—or whether it’ll end up being a nightmare job, or a just-okay job. The things that make people think “dream job,” like the type of work or the prestige of the company, can quickly be trumped by a horrible boss, toxic culture, or crushing workload.
