This is a great question, and I can absolutely see where it may leave some uncertainty with the candidate. A good fit often means that based on the skill set (both job skills and soft skills) needed for someone to be successful in that position. The recruiter may have knowledge about the work environment, the supervisor's expectations or the skill set and what it is going to take for someone to come in and be supported and hit the ground running. This is often when the phrase a "good fit" comes into play, as the recruiter wants to ensure that every candidate hired is going to be set up for success and will be supported and will have a long, productive career. As a candidate you can ask some of these questions during the interview to help on your end assess if this is a "good fit" for you! Good Luck!
