Can someone please enlighten me on why someone higher up, ie: group CD, CEO, etc. would want to interview with someone like me, a mid-level copywriter? Just wondering what they're looking for, especially if I've already interviewed with the CD. Are they just trying to see if my personality would match the environment and culture?

Had final interview at startup with CEO and would-be direct supervisor and at the end they were using language like "you'll be our first [name of role]"... Does this mean I basically got it, or should I not read into it? I'll find out soon anyway, but appreciate any speculation 😅

Interviewing with a company. Nailed the HR and CEO interview and was asked to have another round with the Directors below not for an interview but to just discuss how we will work together. It turned out that it was another proper interview without even time to ask questions (which was very awkward). How should i read this?

For the insurance company. The department consists of 3 senior auditors and a manager. I would report to the manager. They both seemed to be slower paced than PA which is what I want.

Interviewing for a chief of staff role at a startup that’s raised about $14M so far. What should I look for when assessing if this is a good opportunity? Would work directly with CEO and expecting cash compensation of 100K and 0.25% of equity. Is the equity % low? CEO hopes to sell at 100M, meaning the equity would be valued at 60K a year (4 yrs), but this seems optimistic to me. 2 YOE for reference.

Hoping for some advice on how to properly leverage another job offer to help make another company pull the trigger on you. I’ll explain: I’ve been interviewing with Company A for a month now and have met with GC, CFO, creatives, and today the final round with HR and CEO. I have a good feeling they will extend an offer but it’s not a slam dunk. I think I’m top 2. Company B has extended an offer but one that I’m not really considering (moving to a new city/not enough money). Do I mention this....
