Showing posts with the label boss

How do you find a good boss, not just a job?

Recently a friend of mine asked me “I always wonder how to find a Boss rather than a job. Any pointers or experiences, kindly share. Let us assume I am on the interview and I don't know the Boss, the interviewer may be someone else.“ I thought that was a great question! I’m sure there are plenty of experts who have greater insight than myself, but this is what I offered. Ask the interviewers about how they like working at the company and with their boss. Also ask, what do they like most and may about their boss. Hopefully, you will eventually talk to the boss and you can ask him/her how they define success and what he/she likes most about their boss. Whatever he/she likes most is likely a strong trait of their own. Remember you're interviewing them, too. Don't be afraid to dig deeper for more insight. I’m sure there’s much more. A few more things have come to mind since this exchange. Prepare ahead of time and know what kind of a boss you like to work for. Th
