Reading the Room with Joe Cardillo

Amy chats with coach, trainer, speaker, and founder of The Early Manager, Joe Cardillo (they/them), about how we can use research and emotional intelligence to "read the room" when interviewing—i.e., figuring out the context of the organization, team, and manager to ascertain fit and effectively position ourselves to land the role.

We cover:

  • Asking specific questions to get specific answers


  • Questions as a form of positioning


  • The importance of researching an organization's business model, funders, product roadmap, reporting structure, public earnings reports, and other items


  • Explicit and implicit values, and corporate performativity


  • Self censorship and and professional risk-taking
