Things to Consider in a New JobBy: Staff
If you are interviewing for a new job, you expect to be the one being asked questions. But there are also some questions that you should ask to make sure the work environment will suit you if you are selected for the position. First, ask about the office atmosphere. Learn about your prospective manager's working style and how your peers interact with each other. Is the office culture relaxed or does it have a more corporate tone?
Next, ask about what is expected of you. Will you be required to travel or to frequently work overtime? Seriously consider if the balance between work and your personal life will fit your lifestyle. Also find out if there is room for growth within the organization. The position you are pursuing may be a great foot in the door, but will you be able to be promoted to your dream job if the opportunity presents itself in the future?
Once you have ascertained all of this information, determine if the position is what you would actually like to do. Lastly, pray about the opportunity. "...pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done." (Philippians 4:6)
