Job searching: going beyond the common interview questions

Whether your interview is in-person or virtual, prepare specific questions to get more detailed answers on the culture. For example:

  • When someone drops the ball on a project, how does your team handle it?
  • When there is a conflict cross-functionally, how do people sort it out?
  • When people are working remotely, how does the company ensure there is a sense of community?

Knowing how a company answered specific questions (even if they responded vaguely) will give you a better idea of what to expect if you accept the offer.

A company's culture can be found online. Companies will have a mission, vision, and culture statement available online. Job seekers should pay attention to the nuances of language.

When you want to work for a company, its culture might be the most important thing to consider during your search.

If you have already accepted an offer, intentionally seek out information by creating opportunities to connect with others. Some companies may need a few nudges to provide a more inclusive onboarding experience.
