Where do you work best?

???????????????????????????????????????When searching for a job, many of us tend to put most of our focus on the type of job we are looking for- the title, the responsibilities and the skills required. However, finding a job with the right work environment or culture is just as important as the job itself.

Just like you use your resume to match your skills and experience to the responsibilities of a job, take the time to also define the work environment that best suits you.

Everyone has different things in their lives that determine the type of work environment that is best for them. Answering a few questions can help you think through these factors and come up with a more holistic idea of the job you are looking for.

  • Are you someone who likes to work from home?
  • Are you efficient and motivated on your own or do you get lonely?
  • Do you thrive in a face-to-face environment?
  • Does being in an office with coworkers motivate you?
  • Do you enjoy getting up and heading out to the office in the morning?
  • Do you prefer a more corporate environment or an entrepreneurial culture?
  • Is a more hierarchical structure or a more casual, collaborative structure a better fit for your personality?
  • Do you work better with a face time accountability setting or when your day is results driven?
  • Do you prefer a hands-on manager or someone who sets the goals and guidelines and lets you run?

Your choices are personal and none are right or wrong. It’s important to be honest with yourself when outlining your choices, so that you are looking for the opportunity that is the right fit.

Once you have outlined the work environment you are looking for, you can use this as a guide for what information to listen for in future interviews and what questions to ask of possible employers. Making sure you align yourself with the job as well as the workplace environment gives you the information to make the best choice for your next professional venture.
