How do you know if, when you are looking for a new job, the company/job will be a good fit for you?
More people leave their boss than the company at large. This says a lot about the culture of the company that the boss has created and/or influenced. So it’s important to get as much of a feel for this as you can before accepting the job.
As a person looking for a new job, you’d hope and think you could decipher what the company stands for: what they value, by their values. Wouldn’t people really show up that way? Unfortunately, as we’ve discussed previously, this isn’t always the case.
We will be discussing all of this on today’s episode. There are three really important things to look for when interviewing: relationships, communication, and change. Here are three key questions, to go along with these three things, that you can ask in your interview.
- How many employees do you have that have achieved their 10 year anniversary, and what roles are they in?
- How do you communicate within the company? (Ask for specific examples)
- What are some of the top 3 innovations you’re most proud of in the past 2 or 3 years; things that you’ve changed?
