Questions for Determining if an Organization Is a Good Fit for You

Focus on what you need from a new organization

While a lot of job seekers put most of their attention on selling themselves during the interview process, it’s just as important to focus on what they want and need from a new organization and role. Here’s how to do your due diligence as you explore new opportunities.

Q: I’m looking for a new job, but I want to be sure that I join an organization where I won’t face some of the same issues that I do in my current job. I am especially looking for a role with greater flexibility and more autonomy. Can you give me some questions to ask during the interview process, and are there clues to watch for when researching organizations?

A: You are smart to think of this issue as you look for your next opportunity. It is so easy to get caught up in the interview process and how to sell yourself to a prospective employer, rather than focusing on what you want and need in your next position.
