Don’t Shop for a Job. Shop for a Manager
Charlie

There’s a common notion that “people join companies but leave managers”.

The engineer in me says, if that’s the case, let’s solve for that. Don’t take a job b/c of the company, instead take a job b/c it’s the right manager.

Common questions for companies: How is the company doing? What is the strategy? What is the org chart?

Replace to interview managers: How much have you grown in the last 12 months [better me]? Who did you grow in the last 12 months [better you]?

Don’t shop for a job. Shop for a manager.
