Here’s What it Means to Find the Right Fit at a Company

What does it mean to find the right fit in your career?

While some people thrive in the fast-paced environment of a startup where they get to wear many hats, others prefer the structure and stability of working in a corporate office where things are a bit more clear cut. And then there are those who may want a combination of both.

Every company has its own unique culture and values. You can imagine a thousand-person corporation will likely have a very different atmosphere than a tech startup with only six full-time employees.

And, that’s exactly where the question of fit comes in—because while these are two very different versions of work, neither one is “right” or “wrong.” They both have the potential to be the right place for the right person.

That’s why, here at The Muse, we focus on helping employers attract right-fit talent: People who understand what makes your company special and want to contribute to your culture.

So, then, how do you define fit?

We asked the attendees of our Fast Company Innovation Festival Fast Track session to tell us about when they knew they found the right fit at their company. Watch the video above to see what they had to say.
