Ask everyone what you can help them do. Understand that it is often more work for them than just doing it themselves would be, so have a good attitude about it either way. Be upbeat, ask for what you need, let someone know when you don’t know what to do or need help/guidance.

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview?
