Okay, I’m admitting it. I love a good Wall Street Journal article. Even more than that, I love their forum discussions! This one I found particularly relevant to college students. It’s about “building a cohesive team” in the workplace and mastering a company “culture.” While we aren’t the ones creating a team and culture, most of us will soon be trying to fit into one. As I’ve searched for internships and read about job searches, companies often talk about their business environment. Especially in technology, it seems that companies from Facebook to Google have a certain company “vibe.”
As we move forward into the working world, how pertinent do you all think it is to look for companies in which you would “fit in?” Is that more important than the type of work, location etc.? Should we be doing more to discover the type of workplace we would best thrive? Thanks!
