As we begin the new semester, many of you are beginning your spring internship. A common question students ask during their internship interviews is “what is the company culture?” How many of us really know what that means or what we are looking for? My guess is not many. However, how we “jive” with an organization’s culture is very important to our career success and happiness. Your internship is a great time to start to understand this concept and get a feel for what you are looking for.
Internships.com published a helpful article on “Getting a read on corporate culture.” Check out the article for some clarification on what company culture really means and how to understand it.
Best wishes for a great spring semester!
