The phone rings. It’s your recruiter. They’ve got news. You’ve got the job. Happy days! The previous incumbent doesn’t finish for a few weeks so you find yourself with the prospect of a couple of weeks to kill. Bliss.
Your job is more than just a place you go and work for 8+ hours a day. You have to deal with coworkers, bosses, deadlines and a top-down corporate culture that we too often forget about until it rubs us the wrong way.
