Business Culture: Will You Fit In?
Is the company’s work meaningful to you? If you can’t get behind what you’re working towards, you won’t be happy for long.
Are the company’s values aligned with yours? If you’re surrounded by people with similar values your relationships (both personal and professional) will benefit.
Does your work style conflict with theirs? Maybe you prefer to be micro-managed, but this company expects you to work independently and will give you free reign. Candidate know thyself and understand how you best work as a means to understanding how you will fit into a company’s culture.
Determining whether or not a company has the same values, ideal work or work style isn’t going to just come naturally. When you’re in the interview, ask questions. Don’t be afraid to challenge the interviewer with questions because the more you’re able to learn the more you’ll get to know whether or not you want to work for them and, most importantly, whether or not you can be successful at a specific company.
