During the interview process, it is possible to overlook obvious red flags. Sometimes the interviewer is utterly dishonest about what you can expect in your new position. Then, once you begin working, you are confronted with the horrifying reality of what you have just agreed to but there is always a choice and the best thing to do is to walk away and avoid the losing game that is the “sunk cost fallacy.” If you decide to do so because you have that feeling in your stomach, you will be doing everyone a favor.
That’s exactly what the graphic designer did after being misled during the interview process. When she arrived on her first day, she discovered that the company did not have any of the high-profile clients they had boasted about, and she was informed that she would also be working for the business owner’s “side-hustle,” which involved stealing small artists’ work to place on t-shirts.
That’s when graphic artist Redditor u/OminousAvocado realized she had to leave. Despite being duped, she sent a very respectful email to her new boss informing him of her resignation, and his response “reaffirmed” all of her doubts, and decided to leave.
