Feeling Out The Office Culture Before You Take The Job

Wed, 08/09/2017

Congratulations! You scored the interview and are super-excited to showcase your skills and experience. Sometimes we’re so focused on simply landing the job, we forget to take that thought process a few steps further and imagine how we might actually fit in with a particular company’s office culture.

There are certain questions you can ask before and during the interview to get a feel for the office culture. For example, get real with yourself about whether the job description truly sounds like you, or asking people from the company what they do outside of work or asking hiring managers what the busiest time of the year is like can give you some clues. Depending on the industry, asking about dress code can offer some insight as well.

This article by Monster contributor Jon Simmons provides some tips for getting a feel for the work environment.
