Anyone has experience with technical interviews in accounting? What should I expect? Have a Skype interview scheduled with Australia and they informed me it's going to be a technical interview...

Most likely they will be asking you about background and to explain times when you worked on technical issues. I doubt they expect you to recite guidance off the top of your head. The most important part of technical accounting is being able to read guidance, understand it and apply it to the circumstances at hand.

No such thing as a technical interview.... You'll be fine buddy. Don't sweat it. Just put some shrimps on the Barbie and go down unda. I recommend Melbourne over Sydney

I had a technical interview when I was young, 22, with Costco internal audit, a bunch of assholes, the 3 men took me to a tiny room and interrogated me with a bunch of textbook questions, intimidated the hell out of me. After that I swear I will never work for assholes, or stay through another situation like that, if interviewers act out of whack I will just get up and leave. What kind of boss you have is very important!!!!

Technical interviews are a thing. They may ask you questions about cyber security networking possibly change management questions or logical access

Hi fishes,
I'm currently attending lot of interviews, some interviewers are courteous, introduced them, their work experience, what they do and then ask me to introduce myself. While there are interviewers who don't even tell their name or anything, just join the interview and start asking questions, some interviewers don't even apologize if they join late.
One thing I noted is, these guys are generally not managers or HR, someone who have 1 or 2 years more experience than me.
Any experiences?

I have a lunch interview Friday and am at a loss on what to bring with me. My laptop bag is the Lo & Sons Brookline so it’s nice but unstructured nylon. Since the pandemic started I haven’t carried a purse and just put my phone and keys in my bag. Typically to an interview I would just carry a zip-up padfolio with my resume and throw my phone and keys inside, but that seems odd for a lunch. Thoughts and ideas?

The buy-in doesn’t matter.

Conceptually, a buy-in represents an equity partner’s contribution to the working capital of the firm.

If you imagine starting up a new firm, you and your partners would have to come out of pocket for the funds to pay salaries, rent office space, buy laptops, etc. until you got paid for (not just sold!) your first few projects. So when an equity partner buys-in, they’re writing a check that says they will pay the staff out of their own pocket if they have to.
