Cultural Red Flags: Decode Workplace Dynamics for Optimal Growth.  Beyond securing a job, the ultimate goal is thriving within a supportive cultural environment.

Bonus Tip: Pay attention to what’s not being said too!  I remember a time when I interviewed for a position and I was so wrapped up in how great the position sounded and communicating my skills and experience for the role, that I did not ask enough questions about their organizational goals.  I believe I would have received more insight into the short-term and long-term plan for the position had I thought about what was not being said!
