    When looking at job ads, what jumps out at you?

    I'm curious to hear how others experience job hunting when it comes to jobs posted online. What jobs appeal to you the most?

    Well-formatted job posts. You'd be surprised at how many are sloppy, and have formating and grammatical errors. A well-made post makes me feel much more reassured about a job/company.

    Jobs that offer a chance to show your creativity and give you a lot of autonomy. Sadly they are few and far between these days.

    The absence of raving about what a "family we are here" and over-emphasis of their workplace culture.
    This has always signaled to me that someone emotionally controlling is in charge, they often want to make sure you *think* about their pet workplace in the *right* way, which often means the management is controlling and oppressive, oversensitive about the small stuff and looking for abject loyalty and a lack of independent thinking.

    Instead, I prefer postings that appear as if they are willing to flex to the needs of different employees, should a candidate meet the needs of the position. In the real world, workplaces should adapt to the varying needs of most reasonable people, and keep in mind that a job is not going to be a family for most folks - it's a place to support their families - so no, it can't come first, and no, that shouldn't be an issue if employees are treated well enough that they want to keep their position and put in the work for it.

    In other words, I prefer workplaces that function with the professional removal a workplace should have, that keeps manipulation and unhealthy coworker dynamics to a minimum.

    What I look for in a job is that I can think creatively. Out of the box. Also that independent thinking is appreciated and that there is a good balance between working together & doing your individual work. I don't want to be the einzelganger of the company nor do I desire to be always working together with others.

    I have a passion for helping others, whether it's customers, suppliers or co-workers I don't mind. So there has to be an element of that in the job description.

    Finally I would say I do look for a place with a tight knit team and something that feels a bit like family. A warm(ish) working environment suits me the best.

    Places that don't expect me to be tied to my phone 24/7. Places that don't contact me before/after certain hours or on my off-days and expect an answer. Places that schedule shifts at least one week in advance, maybe two. Places that don't ask too many questions about what you do with your sick days. (Not so far as goofing off on sick days, but as far as my chronic illnesses are between my doctor and me, not my employer's business.)

    Most things you don't find out until after you're hired, though...

    As far as job boards, I look for things that list what the requirements are clearly, and have a job description that's not just the generic COME JOIN AN AWESOME TEAM OF AWESOMENESS....okay, yeah, that's nice, but I want to know what you actually want me to be DOING. But really, when I'm on a job hunt, I'm not that picky. I'll apply for anything I think I can reasonably do, though lately I also take a look at the pay and don't go below a certain rate unless I have to. After all, you can always decline to be hired if after the interview you've found you don't care for the job at all.

    This appeals to me as well. It describes a supportive environment.
