All startups are different, which is why it’s vitally important to take into account not only the responsibilities of the role you’re interviewing for, but also whether the company you’re interviewing with is a good cultural fit for you. Don’t underestimate the negative effects a bad cultural fit can have on your effectiveness and happiness—after all, you don’t want to find yourself back on the job hunt only a few months later. Companies with great culture and the best tech employers always take cultural fit into consideration when making hiring decisions, and you should too.
So how do you do that? These three steps will teach you how to find a great job with a company culture that is fitting for you.
