Do You Fit the Organizational Culture?
Well, it has been too long, my friends! My apologies. The past couple of months have been very hectic, as I acquired a new job, finished my previous one, and the Christmas season quickly caught me up in family gatherings! A fellow blogger, Grif Jones, asked me on Twitter “No more pinstripe?” There will always be #PinstripePumps!
As I started my new job, I ran across an article on the importance of organizational culture. Business Week published an article by Logan Hill – Job Applicants’ Cultural Fit Can Trump Qualifications. As the cultural “fit” of an organization becomes more important, job interviews are becoming more like first dates. Interviewers are “feeling” the interviewee out, assessing if they have similar interests and humour as their employees do.
