When you’re searching for new IT jobs, there are decisions you need to make. There are plenty of things your technical recruiters and IT staffing companies will want to know: what kind of IT jobs do you prefer? Do you like client/end-user interaction? What kind of corporate culture do you do best in? But something your IT recruiters and IT staffing firms may not ask you about (but is still very important) is what kind of boss you think you can succeed with.
This might seem like a pretty straightforward question, but the more thought you put into it, the more likely you can make sure your IT recruiting companies and IT staffing agencies place you in a job you can be happy in. Start by thinking about your previous bosses. What qualities were great for your work style and what qualities weren’t? What qualities made you happy or unhappy? Make a list and share it with your IT recruiting agencies. During interviews, ask the kinds of questions that can (without putting your interviewer on the defensive) help you see if your potential boss has these qualities. While it’s not the most important part of a job, a boss will make a big impact on how much you enjoy it.
