I was stuck at a job that I didn’t care about with a boss whom I hated, so when I was approached with a job opportunity on LinkedIn, I desperately thought, “Why not?” The recruiter kept talking about how the role “bridges the gap between finance and healthcare” – two things I’m passionate about. But that’s where the positives ended. He refused to disclose the name of the company, dodged most of my questions and kept calling this opportunity huge and incredible. He brought his mentor into the process, who supposedly made $300k/year (in other words, she’s at the top of the pyramid scheme), and of course he saw that same potential in me (based on what, I’m not sure).
