Applying to a technical accounting position and the Company is asking for a writing sample. They have two options I could either write on a case scenario that they provide me or I can provide a writing sample from something that I have written before. I have a memo talking about a 606 cut off considerations it’s not very technical but I think it would address the request do you guys think this would be enough or should I just do the writing case scenario?

Depends how badly you want the job. If you really want the job go through the hoops of writing the case scenario.

If it doesn't take more than a few hours, I'd do the writing case scenario.

You don’t have any other writing samples anywhere? Dig deep?? If you want to impress and I’d do the case writing given the scenario.

I ended up just providing a writing sample from memo that I had written before

i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
