Have a final round interview with a VC where the partners will give me a company and assumptions and I will have to "structure a deal". I've never worked with companies in that early of astage and I work in M&A where most processes are bids. What should I expect here? Any tips or resources I should check up on?
How do you guys deal with interviewers who are not genuine/“nice” to you during interviews? I just had an interview with this COO from a small crypto firm, was pretty excited going into the call... until he started off asking me random questions to test my knowledge about the space, which I appreciate but what made me feel very uncomfortable was the tone and the way he presented... I’m in Finance trying to break into that space so obviously I don’t have professional experience there..
Came across some people who leave their firm for less than half a year on Linkedin. Why? How they get through the interview to go next with the same position?
When you’re interviewing for a new job and trying to read up about the things you don’t know but you don’t know what you don’t know 😞
I’ve been going on interviews lately but not hearing back and I wonder if it’s to some extent because I started note taking during interviews. When the interviewer is speaking I usually take notes on what he says and then towards the end I usually have questions I wrote down when they were speaking based on what they said. Could taking notes be perceived as negative because my head is down?

I recently went through a virtual Microsoft hiring event for experienced finance professionals. I had interviews with 4 different finance directors. The next day recruiter told me that feedback was very positive and the next step for me is team matching to find a team that’s suited specifically towards me and what I want to do. Has anyone gone through the process and can share how long it might take from team matching to offer? I’m anxious waiting because there’s no actual offer yet.

How to handle internal $ negotiations? Interviewing for a new role, was initially hired on and under “leveled” w/r/t role, seniority, compensation @ top asset manager.

I’m feeling super discouraged. Why bother with my resume at all?
