It’s like interviewing for a job as a robot. No human structures conversations like this. So you basically have to write out dozens of potential answers and memorize them so you can repeat them back to the interviewer in the correct format. There are loads of videos on YT on how to do this.

Interview process is hell. Lol. It’s so structured/rigid. They have a system where you have to answer based on their leadership principles and through an acronym STAR (Situation, Task, Action, something else I can’t remember). They base your employability at Amazon through how well you can reference those. It feels so stale and corporate (from a creative’s POV)

R stands for result.

You can DM me and I will give you the info.

Is this the same process for creatives?

Oh oops I can’t read

Hi Fishes,

My colleague's younger sister is looking for a job as a fresher. She has recently graduated (B.com) and is pursuing US CMA. She's also done a couple of internships and is highly proactive and motivated. The family has been struggling to meet the ends specially due to Covid Pandemic.

Tried applying via Naukri and LinkedIn but there's hardly any response.
Can someone please refer her in their organization for a relevant role for a B.Com graduate. DM me for more details.

TIA

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

In the early stages of interviewing at a large company for an in-house role. They volunteered some basic comp information at the first interview to be transparent. A large portion of the comp (40%) comes in the form of RSUs. If we progress further, what questions should I be asking about the RSUs? The vesting schedule is key. Thoughts on pros / cons of this form of comp? My biggest concern is that the base salary is too low for me to comfortably live on…but the “total compensation” is great!
