Decisions about one’s first full time job or a change in a job involve many questions regarding “Who am I”?, “What do I want to do”?, “What Company-Organization is a good fit”? Many resources are available today particularly through the internet and student and alumni career services organizations to help answer these key questions. However, “Tools” or a “framework” for assessing and matching the “way work is done” in an organization with your personal values, interests, and characteristics are somewhat lacking. This 2 hour, interactive workshop will give the participants the opportunity to experience and learn to apply a unique approach to assess the culture of an organization, compare with your self assessment, and determine if the organization and job are a good fit.
