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

Sell yourself while also confirming the organization is the right fit for you

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.

Before you even start thinking of changing jobs, take some time to get clear on what you are looking for. This is where a pro-con list might come in handy. List what you like about your current job on one side and what you don’t like on the other. This should give you a place to focus on what you want to be different in your next job.
