Office cultures within the PR and marketing industry vary from place to place.
Determining how you might fit in a given workplace atmosphere should factor into your decision to make a shift.
Rasheen Carbin, CMO of job-matching site nsphire.com, says that even if an organization makes you a tempting offer, assessing its culture is essential before you accept the position.
“Employers are increasingly concerned about cultural fit, because it’s easier to teach people skills than the culture of an organization,” he told Fast Company. “It’s important that you [the potential employee] honestly ask yourself if the office culture is a good fit for you.”
To help determine how you’ll fit in, career coach Andrea Raggambi suggests comparing your personal values against those of the organization in question.
Here’s what she told Fast Company:
“For instance, if you crave a high degree of flexibility but the organization is extremely rigid, this could trump everything else and help you realize it’s not a good fit…The key is to define your make-or-break values.”
