I was 'asked to resign' (fired) last month and have been working my network since then for opportunities. BTW--keep that network fresh folks, it is a huge safety net for your career.
I've recently went through a short interview process with a local non-profit for an executive position. There are a few flags about the role (not a tough screening, high staff turnover below the director level, some local political tension between the executive director and major funders, and a couple of previous employees with mixed feelings about the leader). Plenty of positives as well: autonomy to hire/staff, complete strategic control, room for growth, financials are in order, top compensation, etc.
My question is this: should I be looking for a reason to say no to this role; similarly to when I'm hiring my own staff and I'm looking for a reason to say no to an interviewee?
It's the only offer pending, but it's early in the game. I know that I'll need to make a decision on my own, just curious about general guidance for the above question.
