    When we accept a job offer, we're basically signing up for a mystery rollercoaster ride. How much do we really know about the job, the company, or the team we'll be spending most of our waking hours with? Not much, really! What should we do before accepting a new job? Let's find it out! Sure, there are exceptions, where we know the company or the people beforehand, but usually, it's a leap in the dark. We're so focused on impressing during the interviews that we forget it's a two-way street. Just as the company chooses us, we should also choose what's best for us. It's like dating, but with jobs!

You know, those quirky activities that make you lose track of time, leaving you glued to your PC at 8 in the evening! Embrace those, because that's where the magic lies: those are the things that make you feel alive and purposeful.

    Welcome to the first issue of Working Wonders, our newsletter dedicated to the world of work! This is Emma, young professional by day, writer by night, and curious and frank observer of anything somehow related to personal and professional development. We are starting this project with the aim of looking at the world of work in a new, a little bit witty, and hopefully helpful way. In this first issue we’re looking at a paradox: is it better to be in a job you hate or not having a job at all?
