Finding the company you love working for
This is the real challenge when it comes to changing your careers.
Finding the company you love working for is really tricky and you should be careful about this. After all, it’s not like you can join a company and quit after a few weeks or months and then repeat the process until you find the right company for your needs.
Nope, that’s not possible.
Instead, you have to learn how to identify it before you decide to join and there are three things you should pay attention to:
- What a company does
- How a company does what it does
- Why a company does what it does
What a company does – LOW priority
A company can do many things.
A company can make beauty products, can provide transformational leadership workshops, or build water filters.
What a company does is not that important because what a company does is influenced by how a company does what it does.
How a company does what it does – MEDIUM priority
If a company makes beauty products, but they have to kill dolphins or pollute the planet in order to enhance their products, then that’s a red flag.
On the other hand, if a company provides transformational leadership workshops and they can see results beyond the customers of their customers, then that’s a green flag.
Why a company does what it does – HIGH priority
The reasons behind a company’s actions are the most important when it comes to finding the company you love working for.
If the main (and maybe only) reason is to make money but you’re interested in creating a social impact through your actions, then it may be better for you not to pick that company.
Having these things in mind, make sure you know the WHAT, HOW, and WHY of the company you’re interested in.
When you’re at the interview, ask the recruiter and manager what the company does (you should know most of what they do from a Google search), how they do it, and why they do it.
