Not personally but I do remember being on a call with an SA who had a body imprint on the bed behind her. I guessed that she was laying down prior to our call and hopped on video 😂

Can you set your background to blur to avoid future embarrassment?

Well lesson is learned now

Adventures in Interviewing: Today we were wrapping up a pretty good interview with a strong potential candidate. When asked if they had any last questions, they said that they had an issue with our Work from Home policy (we’re 100% WFH right now, and will not consider a re-opening strategy until everyone is vaccinated). The candidate declared that they did not believe in vaccines, so we needed to allow her to be a permanent remote hire. I guess I’m glad about the dodged bullet, so there’s that.
