A few months ago, I was well on the way to becoming one with the design industry, in a company that deals with high-level web design and production.
Everything was going well, until I was taken out of the program, with the sole reason being not able to culturally fit with and into the workplace.
What exactly is this thing called Culture Fitting?
While it actually sounds like a hipster term, or if not, would be associated with exclusivity with a certain organization and/or group, or using the best of your social connections to get you to where you want to go, it’s actually a wonderfully delightful buzzword used by human resource teams all around the world.
Gone are the days when you can’t apply for the job without the proper qualifications. Alas, this so-called culture fitting destroys the exclusivity of having ACTUAL EXPERIENCE and if you know shit, but could fit in better than the one who knows how to do the job right, chances are, you’ll get the job.
Imagine this. You’re cut out for the job. The bosses love how efficient you are and how innovative your ways are, but you just couldn’t fit in with the rest of your co-workers. Chances are, you’d get sacked someday because of that, nevertheless.
That pretty much sums it up, and frankly, I absolutely hate it.
