A job is more than just a place you go and get things done for 8+ hours a day. You also have to interact with coworkers, bosses, office politics, and top-down corporate culture that we too often forget about until it rubs us the wrong way. If you don't thrive in that culture, the job can get intolerable quickly. Cultural fit can trump skills from an interviewer's perspective. Further, it is important to ensure you take into account the corporate culture prior to accepting a job offer. This presentation will walk you through how to identify corporate culture and what culture your values best align with.
