Ever want to dig into how a company actually operates?

As in, how they truly behave?

That’d be a good thing to do if you’re job interviewing, I’d think.

You don’t want to be joining a company you won’t like!

First question: Do you even know what kind of culture works for you?

Let’s say you do.

Can you get over your freshly-inflicted bruises that tend to shine overly-bright lights on recent issues at the expense of investigating all the other cultural traits you want?

You know what I mean…

I want to make sure they don’t work me too hard. My last company did that.

You become myopic on this issue to find that, yes, in fact, this new employer of yours doesn’t require you to work too hard.

Except, after you start working there, you discover they are very political, confused, generally don’t have a good strategy, or high employee satisfaction.

Second and third questions conflated: Do you know WHAT questions to ask and HOW to ask them so you are actually getting evidence of their behavior?

Fourth question: And how to do this without incriminating yourself? 

As in, if I ask about work like balance, they’ll think I don’t work hard. Etc. Etc. and Ha and ha.

Okay. I can practically hear you wiping the sweat off your eye brows.

Let’s get to it and get you some questions and answers…

Job searching stinks. There’s just no two ways about it. It makes no difference how awesome you are at your job. Job searching is rough. It’s unnatural.

Got asked a great question a few weeks back at Live Office Hours.

The person asked if he should stay at his company or transition every 3-4 years.

He has aspirations of being a CEO at some point in the future and was wondering whether the variety or longevity would better position him.

Have you ever wondered this?

You might be thinking, well, Andy, I just need a job. This is moot at the moment.

Or, hey, Andy, you’re a mind-reader!

Well, what do I often say?

“Your trajectory matters much more than where you are at any moment in time […] any moment in time is just that. It’s over in an instant.”

You will eventually be faced with a scenario like this.

And, even if it’s just a matter of changing jobs, you’ll benefit from the philosophy, whys, wherefores, whats, and how-to-thinks in today’s video clip.

Take in at your leisure so you can stay on that not-so-leisurely, skyrocket-like trajectory!
