When you're looking for a new job, it's so important to take into account who you're going to be working for. Different working styles suit different people. A boss who is loud and flamboyant might be perfect for you, but hell for someone else. Equally, a quiet boss who doesn't really get involved might be your idea of a nightmare, so it's important to weigh up the pros and cons of all these different personality types. Take note of who you're meeting during the interview process and establish whether or not you're going to be able to work with them or not.
