Company culture fit
& your job hunt process
A job is more than just a place you go to for 8 hours a day. The people, the culture, the co-workers and the manner in which the company operates can determine whether you are happy and productive at work or not. Whether you are an employee looking to move into a senior role or a CEO looking to recruit Executive staff, an employee- company culture fit is crucial to productivity and success in the recruitment process.
Here’s how company culture fit can help your job hunt process
- Narrow your search – Workplace cultures differ from one to another. Understanding a company’s culture upfront, enables you to make an informed decision about where to work. People who fit a company’s culture tend to be happier in their roles. And happy employees, tend to be productive and driven. Targeting specific companies based on company culture fit will help you narrow your job search and results rather than casting your net too wide.
- Do they fit you? To understand whether a company’s culture fits you, you have to know what you want. This process is introspective: to understand what you want, you have to understand who you are and what you are looking for. Also, research the company thoroughly, ask your recruiter about the company culture, speak to current employees. Do you love coming up with new ideas and taking big risks, or do you value a place that is more rigid and risk averse? Compare your research with feedback and decide if the culture fits you.
- Do you fit them? Your most powerful weapon during an interview is demonstrating that you will fit right into the company’s culture. Give it some thought and prepare well. Unpack how and previous roles, demonstrate your ability to adapt, cope and excel in your new work environment. And how your personality is a company culture fit.
