The 90’s have come and gone, but most people are now keenly aware that candidates interview their potential companies now as much as the companies interview them, and from where I stand the next evolution in the interview process will be candidate’s beginning to truly interview their future boss.

Let’s face it you can like the company and your co-workers, but there is no bigger influence on your day to day happiness, and impact on your career progression than that of the person to whom you report to everyday. With this said why then is it that candidates come out of interviews and tell me how great they feel about their job/role, the stability of the company, the personalities of their co-workers, but with almost no information about their boss and their thoughts on; their management style, mentoring & professional development, technical training, etc.?

Unfortunately most people are simply afraid (or don’t know how) to bring these topics up in the interview, but if you desire a long term opportunity with an organization than these questions must be addressed before you can make the best decision for your career.
