applying to an organization where there is already a strong career imprint in place, you need to determine whether it’s compatible with yours or if you can make the adjustment.

If you were hired, clearly they think you can perform. “But maybe your interaction style isn’t appropriate, so you want to do the same thing but in a different way,” suggests Higgins. Some of your behaviors may simply require fine-tuning.
